Allen Moore - _1984

_1984’s composition intersected my art practice, creating hand casted records and recorded conversations with my mother, Linda L. Moore, whom the cover and allegory is primarily dedicated to.

_1984 is a biographical “sonic tapestry” inspired by and dedicated to the cherished memories of departed family members. This project stands as a cathartic journey through grieving, solace in the face of mortality, embracing family trauma and pondering the intricacies of existence. This is a dialogue within the symbols and institutions that shape black history, our agency, expression, and self-reflection.

With deepest gratitude, I extend my thanks to all who lend their ears and minds to this. Thank you for sharing space with me. May this album be a source of inspiration or whatever the fuck you need it to be. Love.
