David Moore, Composer
At 27, composer and multi-instrumentalist David Moore has quickly established himself as a strong presence in New York City's creative music community. In 2006, after receiving his Bachelor of Music from The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, Moore founded the ensemble Bing and Ruth, whose current membership includes clarinets, voices, cellos, basses, piano, trumpet, and lap steel. The band keeps an active performance schedule and has recorded three albums, City Lake (in 2010), Kentile Floors (in 2007), and Bing and Ruth (in 2006). Notable performances include multiple shows for the Wordless Music Series, an appearance at the WFMU festival, two appearances for the Stochastic Brooklyn series, and a live studio recording for WFMU. In 2009 Moore was awarded the MATA Festival Commission and the MATA Film Commission, both awards culminating with a new multimedia piece premiered by Bing and Ruth at the 2009 MATA Festival in New York City.
