THE MIND'S EYE: Steve Moore Musician Profile

Steve Moore wonders if he has what it takes to be a Vanguard Mascot.
When you hear the name Zombi, what does it bring to mind? Does it make you think of the alternate title of George A. Romero's 1978 film Dawn of the Dead? Or Lucio Fulci's 1979 film Zombie, a.k.a. Zombi 2? Or do you think about the guy in the above photo?

Steven R. Moore is one half of instrumental duo Zombi, along with Anthony Paterra (a.k.a. Maserati). Together they've been making retro-inspired yet utterly modern (and frequently futuristic) music since first part of the current millennium. Their music is influenced by (what else?) the soundtracks of films by Romero, Fulci, and horror maestro John Carpenter... meaning the soundtrack work of bands like Goblin and Fabio Frizzi, as well as Carpenter's own film scores. He's also provided the score to The Mind's Eye.

Moore is nothing if not prolific and like the movies mentioned above, he also goes by the alias Gianni Rossi (pretty inspired, if you ask us), and is a member of the bands Lovelock and Titan.

You might also recall Moore's score for last year's Midnight Madness fave, The Guest.

Or you might remember his score for another MM movie from last year, Cub (Murder Scouts FTW!)

Moore's music can currently be found in The Mind's Eye, which has one last screening on Saturday.

Still need more Moore? You're in luck! Zombi's upcoming release Shape Shift will be out on October 16 from Relapse Records.

THE MIND'S EYE Screening Times:
