Welcome to Moontown
Welcome to the Moontown Studios website. Moontown Studios is musician, writer, and filmmaker Eric Mayer's independent multimedia studio. Eric Mayer currently releases music under the recording name 'Moontown.' Eric has also recorded under his own name and the name Joke Science. Eric has home-recorded around 70 albums as of 2016; written, directed, and acted in many independent features and short films; and composed prose fiction, critical essays, and poetry. This website provides access into a significant portion of his musical, cinematic, and written works.

The Moontonian Report: 7.21.2016
For what will likely be a short time, our Band Camp now has 66 of the 70 albums we have created in our lifetime - and the four not present are probably only of interest to a kind of obsession only a Moontonian can have about it, so for all intensive purposes, it's all up there. We at Moontown are, however, reviewing the Band Camp with an eye at highlighting the works we feel are the best introduction to a first time listener, and this means many older things that lack enduring appeal for us will most likely be taken down in the next few weeks. Visit the Moontown music archives at Band Camp here.
We released an album on Easter Sunday 2016, entitled Moksha. Check out Moontown's "Moksha" at this link. Also, very soon, we will release a new Moontown double album that has been in the works the past few months.
