Music Projects

PRESENT PROJECTS

INVISIBLE SPORTS

Invisible Sports is the solo project of Aaron Moore. It is undecided what Invisible Sports will be other than it will be music made by Aaron Moore. Moore’s first solo album ‘The Accidental’ – Elsie & Jack (2005) was not Invisible Sports. Moore’s second solo album, the forthcoming “The Future Tastes’ is Invisible Sports as is the forthcoming live album ‘Ow Pow Hero Hour’. Moore now plays live as Invisible Sports though he formerly played live as Aaron Moore.

Invisible Sports was a bedroom game Moore used to play with a former girlfriend where he would perform a variety of naked sports poses. His girlfriend would then have to guess which sport he was posing. The music of Invisible Sports ‘The Future Tastes’ bears no relation to this game. Songs performed on melodic percussion, drums, trumpet, strings, PVC tubing and a rubber band bass with lyrics inspired by a dissolving releationship. Moore painstakingly played, recorded and mixed ‘The Future Tastes’ over a 3 year period soon after relocating to Brooklyn, NY.

‘The Future Tastes’ LP (Alt. Vinyl) and the live CD ‘Ow Pow Hero Hour’ (Intransitive) were released in 2012.

A new studio album is in the works.

“Volcano The Bear have produced some of the finest, wildest British music of the last 10 years on record and on stage.” (The Wire, Jan 2006)

“No one sounds, has sounded or will ever sound quite like Volcano the Bear.”(Losing Today)

“..Its the (band’s) originality that is most striking, and ultimately they sound like nothing else… An inspired use of sonic material”(The Wire, Classic Erasmus Fusion review)

“What Colin Turnbull’s field recordings were to Pygmy music, this music (The Idea Of Wood) could be to a mysterious race of backwoods British dwarves.”(Dusted)

“The most eccentric band in the UK or the world for that matter” (Losing Today)

SONGS OF NORWAY

Songs Of Norway began in early 1995 and were originally the quartet of Stewart Brackley (bass), Ginn (tenor sax), Aaron Moore (drums) and Nick Mott (prepared guitar). Ginn soon left the group and the trio continued for a few years until Brackley left leaving SON as a duo. Their sole album ‘Despite The Cloak’ was released on Beta-Lactam Ring Records in 2003 and featured both duo and trio recordings. As did the limited 3″CDR EP release ‘The Great Work’ (Olwyn Plant) released in the same year. Although the group never officially broke up they have not played together since 2004.

A little history here; Moore and Mott had an idea for a new experimental music group and got together with Brackley and Ginn to try some ideas out. They decided that this wasn’t what they were looking for but continued with the free improvising Songs Of Norway. The original idea for a new group shortly came to fruition with the forming of Volcano The Bear. The name Volcano The Bear was the title of a Songs Of Norway piece.
