Bing & Ruth

David Moore solo

Starkly-beautiful, minimal and filmic, Bing & Ruth “exists in the cracks between” (Pitchfork). Back in 2006, when pianist David Moore was still a student in New York, he began the ensemble as a way of taking his music to audiences beyond the classroom. Inspired by the likes of John Cage, Steve Reich, Thomas Newman and Sergei Prokofiev, Moore surrounds his piano with intricate and wrenching ensemble compositions that build “bold new universes, as charged with joy and heartbreak as they are wholly blank” (Spin). His latest release, No Home of the Mind  is “a grand statement veiled in intimacy” (The Quietus) and “strikes a chord without uttering a word.” (Resident Advisor).
