AARON MOORE is an Englishman residing in Brooklyn, New York who plays music with instruments & devices. Primarily a drummer he generally considers any instrument or object playable in one way or another. Moore is a founding member of English experimental music group Volcano The Bear. Now in their 19th year together VTB have been critically acclaimed as one the leading lights of the British experimental music scene. In a 2006 article on the group the Wire magazine described them as “producing some of the finest, wildest British music of the last 10 years on record & on stage”.
As an improvisor Moore thrives on the unpredictable; the potential for chaos and collapse leading to new territory. Contrastingly, his studio compositions, starting as improvisations, are mulit-layered and meticulously edited over months and years. His debut solo album under his own name, 2005’s “The Accidental” recorded in Leicester, England was a minimal work primarily using one acoustic instrument per track to create drones, loops and soundscapes. “The Accidental” was described by Foxy Digitalis as “…graceful as a ripple in fresh water, or as a snowfall on a particularly cold January morning”.
Since moving to Brooklyn in late 2006, Moore has been developing his solo work under the name Invisible Sports in a number of ways using drums, voice, melodic percussion, trumpet, tapes & loops. For the second Invisible Sports studio album “The Future Tastes” Moore composed songs based around melodic percussion & multi-tracked voice whilst his live work and the live album “Ow Pow Hero Hour” leans towards sprawling epics of progressive looping & ritualistic improvisation.
Moore has appeared on over 40 albums with various groups & toured extensively in Europe and North America. He has a number of other ongoing projects including a duo with Argentinian guitarist Alan Courtis, Brooklyn based ‘jazz’ group Gospel Of Mars and has collaborated/performed with Boredoms, A Hawk & A Hacksaw, Thierry Muller and Tom Recchion amongst many others.
