Composer, bass player and vocalist Guro Skumsnes Moe is among the most active musicians and composers in Norway within the borderless music. With a primitive and direct approach she seeks for a physical sound through bass and voice. To search for a sound that is not possible.The instrumental approach has elements of friction and noise, and draw inspiration from concrete music, noise and performance. 

Moes background from improvised music through contemporary music and rock is remarkable and shows that the boundaries of today’s music is beginning to blur.

Her production includes over 20 recordings, music to several plays for Plexus Polaires Compagnie, crossover productions like «Len Dem Ikke Ut» and composing for chamber orchestra The Touchables (With among others Ole-Henrik Moe, Kari Rønnekleiv).

She has toured continuously since 2006 with her main projects, MoE and Sult, in Europe, the US, Japan, Southeast Asia and Mexico. Moe runs the label Conrad Sound and co-curates the all Ears festival, and Høyt og Lavt. She has just released a fanzine «Stuntrock #3» on MARHAUG FORLAG.
