Aaron Moore is an Englishman residing in Brooklyn, New York who plays music with instruments & devices.

As a solo performer Moore thrives on the unpredictable. Since moving to Brooklyn in 2006, he has been developing his solo work in a number of ways using 4-track tape machines, percussion, trumpet and voice to create methodical sonic environments, with the constant potential for chaos and collapse leading him to new territories. A habit for audience participation/gentle manipulation is also crucial to his live work. Moore is a firm believer in spontaneity. Being as loosely prepared as possible is his mother of invention.

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 improvisor Alan Courtis, Brooklyn based ‘notjazz’ group Gospel Of Mars and has collaborated/performed with Thierry Muller, Boredoms, A Hawk & A Hacksaw, and the LAFMS group Airway amongst many others.
