Eric Moe's music has been variously described as "maximal minimalism", "Rachmaninoff in hell", and "music of winning exuberance". The New York Times says recently that Moe "subversively inscribe[s] classical music into pop culture". Although the surfaces and genres are varied, his works share a concern for rhythmic propulsion and a disregard for stylistic orthodoxies. Sometimes tonal, sometimes not, harmony (generally crunchy) and melody (often angular) play privileged roles in his work.
Active as a pianist and keyboard player, Moe writes music he enjoys playing, and otherwise plays music he wishes he'd written. Mr. Moe is represented by Howard Stokar Management.
