James Moore is a composer, guitarist, and bandleader who has earned the titles of “local electric guitar hero” by Time Out New York and “model new music citizen” by The New York Times. He enjoys an active career writing, performing, and collaborating with an eclectic community of artists, bringing in influences from classical, folk, jazz, indie rock, and experimental music. Moore’s first solo recording, a new interpretation of John Zorn’s notorious collection of guitar etudes The Book of Heads, was released on Tzadik in 2015, accompanied with a performance film by director Stephen Taylor. He worked closely with Zorn to develop these strange and idiosyncratic works, which require an arsenal of extended techniques involving balloons, children’s toys, and common household items. Moore has also worked with Zorn to develop many of his improvisational “game pieces,” culminating in the release of Dither Plays Zorn, which was dubbed a “top avant album” of the year by Rolling Stone.
