Kevin Moore is an ambient/experimental artist. While best known as the founding keyboardist of the progressive metal band Dream Theater, the music he has since released under his own name has included film scores and avant-garde sound collages. After leaving Dream Theater around 1994, he traveled around the US writing and demoing much of the material for his debut Chroma Key album, Dead Air For Radios.

After moving to Costa Rica, he conducted a biweekly program on Radio for Peace International, a small shortwave activist radio station. From this venture into radio, Kevin took the material for his download-only release Memory Hole 1. Ever the pilgrim, Kevin then moved to Istanbul, Turkey where he worked on the soundtrack to the movie Okul, the result of which is the album Ghost Book: Soundtrack to the Film Okul. While in Turkey and collaborating with local musicians, he released the third Chroma Key album, Graveyard Mountain Home. He also worked on the soundtrack to the movie Küçük Kıyamet.

By March 2007, Kevin Moore has officially teamed up with Turkish industrial rock band Makine for pre- and master-production of their debut album, which is planned to be released in the end of 2007.

1989 - When Dream And Day Unite
1992 - Images and Words
1993 - Live at the Marquee
1993 - Images and Words: Live in Tokyo (DVD)

    Kevin Moore was the only thing keeping their egregiously self-indulgent tendencies in check. Once he left, it all went to shit. Too much wank, not enough songwriting.

    Rumour has it he didn't want to go on the Awake Toore because he had really bad diarrhoea, and forgot how to play.

    @Instrumedley I'm pretty sure Kevin had his own good reason for leaving DT. Grinding away in a band and not having a creative voice isn't everyone's cup of tea. And IMO DT is a shadow of their former selves, creatively. But all bands go through that cycle. Necessity is the mother of invention. As soon as you've made it you can just start checking it in...and that's what DT has been doing for several albums now. Again, just my opinion.

    what are all those people saying Dream Theater never knew what they were losing? Are you guys for real ? LOL . So...Scenes from a memory was a loss? Dramatic Turn of events? Get over it...the guy wanted to leave for no good reason, it's HIS loss. You can see that by checking that most people who listen to him are in fact DT listeners. His fame will always be bound to his former band, while for DT, they are really doing great without him :)

    Dream Theater never recovered from his departure. I say they beg him to come back, and maybe they will create something great like Awake again.
