Keith Moore (*1970)

In 1997, Keith Moore completed a commission for the Musikfabrik NRW and was a fellow at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival. The year before he was a fellow at Fondation Royaumont studying with Brian Ferneyhough and Klaus Huber. In 1994 he founded New York City's Three Two (annual festival of recent music). As a trombonist, his performances include appearances at the Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors Festival, LUCIER a 65 Festival (which he co-curated), on CNN cable news, with London's Apartment House, and recordings for New Albion and Braxton House (upcoming). He has studied at the University of Illinois, Wesleyan University and King's College London with Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Anthony Braxton, Herbert Brün, Alvin Lucier and David Tudor. Future projects include new works for Anton Lukoszevieze, the Duruflé Trio, Reinier van Houdt and Marija Ilic.

Percussion Trio (1991/97)

Several groups have begun rehearsing Percussion Trio, but all abandoned it due to the level of minute detail and "traffic" difficulties in ensemble coordination. The Schlagquartett Köln did not perceive these problems negatively, and when they began working on it, so (again) did I. The revised score, completed in 1997, is dedicated to them.

The ensemble plays off a single set-up. It was not designed for efficiency but as a thing to be negotiated. The piece occurs as a fragment long after its beginning, the audience only receives a short but intimate encounter. The meeting is on the topic of current needs and interests, with no desire to legitimize, nostalgize or cover for it's past.
