Ken Moore: Mini-Moog & ARP Odyssey synthesizers,
Hammond organ, ARP String Ensemble, drums, balaphon.
David Wayne Myers: electric guitars, nylon-stringed acoustic
+ John Schneider: bass guitar (7,8).
Ken Moore (synths, organ, drums) had hinted at it before, with some
experimental rock tracks featuring drums and Mellotron on earlier releases,
yet he'd never gone the whole hog and done a rock album before. What he
needed was the collaboration of a like-minded guitarist. Joining forcxes with
David Wayne Myers (guitars), they were one of the smallest ever rock bands,
Ken in multi-instrumental mode, with David adding chords, riffs and sizzling
lead-lines/solos. "Reaching Beyond The Sphere" did just that, one
foot in the past with an instrumental progressive rock it brought the 1970's
Euro-prog sound (Shylock, SFF, ELP, etc.) into the 1980's, and pushed ahead.
Complex, carefully crafted prog with wedges of keyboards (organ and synths)
and lots of guitar solos, Moore/Myers is prog-rock Auricle style!
