Adrian Moore

Adrian Moore (b.1969) first came into contact with electroacoustic music in his hometown of Nottingham at a concert given by Denis Smalley. His undergraduate study was at City University, London, where he began to compose in the sudio as well as assist EMAS (Electroacoustic Music Association of Great Britain now Sonic Arts Network) with concerts. The performance of tape pieces using multiple loudspeakers interested him and his further study under Jonty Harrison at the University of Birmingham offered the opportunity of composing for and working with BEAST (Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre).

Having always held an interest in bringing the power of the tape medium into live performance situation as well as to sound-diffusion, Adrian Moore sees the technology of today as an ideal tool with which to work as a composer, teacher and performer.

He is currently a Lecturer in Music at Sheffield University where he is the director of the University of Sheffield Sound Studios (USSS – ). He is also one of the directors of Sonic Arts Network, the UK’s national organization for the promotion of creative use of technology in the composition and performance of music. His work is published by Empreintes DIGITALes ( ).
