MARQUE GILMORE is a US-born drummer/ percussionist with a worldwide reputation, now nearly 30 years living in Stockholm and London as a drummer, musician, producer, composer, programmer, future arts conceptualist and educator in the entertainment and creative arts industries. As a pioneer of live Breakbeat music in the early 1990s, Marque literally spearheaded the musical sub-genre known as Live DRUM’n’BASS ~ a.k.a. Live DnB!
Marque has been blessed to have collaborated with a multitude of artists from a myriad of different genres: Hip-Hop, R&B, Reggae, underground Dance & Electronica to African music masters, Bengali Sufi singers, Indian classical artists, Rock icons and Jazz legends.
Gilmore’s primary work over the past 35 years connects ancient musical traditions, modern music and technology in performance and production: “Science- Friction-Drum and-Space”. This work continues with new VR-based projects and interactive-theatre and art installation disciplines. Marque has been at the forefront of innovative international music and multi-media-performance for decades and the recipient of unique arts funding and support from organisations such as: BRITISH COUNCIL, BBC, ARTS COUNCIL of ENGLAND, The UK Department for Education and Employment (DfEE), The UK Department for International Development (DfID), The UK PERFORMING RIGHTS SOCIETY FOUNDATION for New Music (PRSF), Contemporary Music Network (CMN), The Barbican Centre, Serious International (UK), Ocean Music Trust (UK), MTV & Channel-V (India), RADIO FRANCE (Rfi), RAI RADIO International (Rome, Italy), European Union Creative Europe Media, and SWEDISH ARTS COUNCILS. Marque’s special “Acousti-Lectric”TM drum-kit and interactive musical approach permeates all of his projects, whether it is in-studio productions/remixes, live or streamed events and in collaborations with artists of all cultures. Gilmore’s specialised “Live ReMiXeS” under the production name “Inna Most” basically digitally re-constructs and creates new beat-structures and harmonic production utilising the combined sciences of Archeo-Astronomy and ancient Sumerian time-keeping connected to the long road of the civil rights struggle and contemporary BLM based thought in groove, titles and text.
