Composer R.A. Moulds

A native Marylander currently residing in the Republic of Ireland, R.A. Moulds studied composition with William Presser at the University of Southern Mississippi. His early music exhibited an idiosyncratic, non-dogmatic post-tonal style, which was soon abandoned in favor of a more eclectic manner. Around 1992, his music made increasing use of tonal materials, not as pastiche or postmodern irony, but rather as acknowledgment of the continuing power of such music to have a complex, expressive effect on performers and audiences. These later works draw on a wide variety of other works—both from the history of music and Moulds’s own—but are integrated within his own graceful, sophisticated sensibility.
