about the record

In 1987, Joanne Foreman was commissioned to create a musical installation for an exhibit of sculptures in Taos, New Mexico called 'Artifacts from an Alien Civilization.'

She imagined that Earth’s moon was a vacation spot for advanced beings from another galaxy.Cave Vaults of the Moon became a collection of sonic texts describing the fun things that went on there; earth-viewing, collecting information, building and playing. In her mind the sculptures in the exhibit were the remnants of a deserted playground of moon castles.

Forman’s playful score for voice, Ensoniq Mirage, Juno 106, flute, guitar and effects, wafted through the exhibit every day for a month and then lay dormant for nearly 30 years. Unearthed here, Cave Vaults of the Moon sounds prescient and timeless, as if the Wicker Man had been scored by Pep Llopis, and we now have the opportunity to reimagine the messages contained within it.
