Adrian Moore is a composer of electroacoustic music. He mainly composes music for fixed formats (CD, DVD), music intended for ‘sound diffusion’ over multiple loudspeaker systems. He also writes for instruments, often with a live processing element using Max-MSP and custom built software. He directs the University of Sheffield Sound Studios (USSS) where researchers and composers collaborate on new musical projects. Adrian Moore’s research interests are focused towards the development of the acousmatic tradition in electroacoustic music, the performance of electroacoustic music, signal processing, and human-computer interaction in music. His music has been commissioned by the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM), the Institute International de Musique Electroacoustique de Bouges (IMEB) and the Arts Council of England. A significant proportion of his music is available on 2 discs, ‘Traces’ and ‘Reve de l’aube’ on the Empreintes DIGITALes label (www.electrocd.com). Adrian Moore supervises postgraduate students wishing to pursue composition with computers, electroacoustic musicology, analysis and performance. He wishes to develop and maintain the community of composers and technologists currently working at USSS creating new tools, software and music.
