ABOUT_

Aaron Moore, a native of Los Angeles, California, is a composer, music producer, and instrumentalist. He grew up dabbling with piano and clarinet, but found his most natural footing with electric guitar and rock music. He later gravitated to making music as part of a Electronic Music course at Hamilton High school, learning how to construct recordings and come up with musical ideas on computer programs such as Reason and Garageband.

 

After a short stint at UC Santa Cruz studying music, he transferred and completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts at California Institute of the Arts in 2010. It was there where he began focusing intently on composition and scoring for animation and film, gaining experience of how to write for specific instruments and in many different styles in the process. He studied with the late Arthur Jarvinen at CalArts, and was exposed to a multitude of avante garde and cultural music practices at the institution.

 

In 2012, he began his Master's in Screen Scoring at New York University while studying with composer Mark Suozzo, further honing how to write music to picture and finding a unique musical voice. He graduated in 2014 and has since been a music assistant to several film/TV composers back in Los Angeles.

 

In pursuing a career in music making, he attributes electronic based music and sound design as a main source of inspiration, while trying to incorporate traditional instruments in fresh ways. He continues to play guitar and learn electronic synthesis.

 

When not composing, he enjoys bicycling, photography, cooking, and watching sports. He currently lives and works out of his studio loft in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles.
