Stephan Moore is a composer, improviser, audio artist, sound designer, teacher, and curator based in Brooklyn and Providence. His creative work currently manifests as electronic studio compositions, solo and group improvisations, sound installation works, scores for collaborative performance pieces, and sound designs for unusual circumstances. Evidence, his long-standing project with Scott Smallwood, has performed widely and released several recordings over the past decade. He also performs with the improvisation quartets Bumpr and Volume(n), and is a frequent collaborator with the performance groups The Nerve Tank and a canary torsi. His company, Isobel Audio, produces unique Hemisphere speakers. Since receiving an Electronic Arts MFA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2003, where he studied with Pauline Oliveros and Curtis Bahn, he has created custom music software for a number of composers and artists, and taught workshops and numerous college-level courses in composition, programming, sound art and electronic music. He is the vice president of the American Society for Acoustic Ecology, and the curator and artistic director of In The Garden of Sonic Delights at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, a 5-month exhibition of outdoor sound art across Westchester County in 2014. From late 2004 to mid-2010, he performed over 250 concerts with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, serving as a touring musician, sound engineer, and music coordinator. He is currently enrolled in the MEME Ph.D. program at Brown University.
