Multi-instrumentalist, producer and engineer Ryan Moore is Twilight Circus (Dub Sound System). He is a Canadian now based in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Ryan grew up in the dense, gummy forests of Vancouver, where he was exposed to reggae at an early age. He became obsessed with the genre & learned to play multiple instruments by playing along with classic Jamaican recordings. By 1981, Ryan was working as a studio musician for Nettwerk Records. He went on to become a member of Legendary Pink Dots, and Tear Garden (with cEvin Key of Skinny Puppy). His obsession with dub & reggae was very strong and soon began experimenting with dubs. Ryan plays and mixes all the tracks himself in the studio he built himself with the analog gear he painstakingly sought out and purchased himself. Instead of digital gear, Ryan often uses live instrumentation (all the way down to single drum hits themselves) and mixes his dubs live. In other words, he is a one-man dub army. In 1995 he released his first album as Twilight Circus Dub Sound System on his own M Records.
