Lisle Moore

Lisle MooreLisle H. Moore III (b. 1973) was raised in Fulton, Missouri. He attended high school at the Interlochen Arts Academy where he won the 1993 Downbeat Magazine Music Award as a high school student. He later attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where he studied jazz piano and film scoring orchestration but never finished his education.

Moore has written music for several movie trailers, including “Cold Mountain,” “Spider-Man 2” and “Spider-Man 3,” to name but a few. He has also composed numerous television themes for the NBA and ESPN Basketball, ESPN Tennis, and the 2010 ESPN World Cup Soccer theme music. His feature film score for The Flyboys (2008) won the Gold Medal for Excellence in the Park City Film Music Festival and the grand prize for the Best Original Musical Composition (Score) in the Rhode Island International Film Festival.

Moore is a sports fan and the father of five. He has lived in Utah since 1994 and met his wife Tammie six months after arriving. He and his family currently live in Highland, Utah, where he works at his newly constructed private studio which is literally in his back yard. The Deseret News describes the studio as, “Garage on the outside, professional composition studio on the inside — a structure aptly dubbed ‘The Garage Majal.’”

He also wrote the music for the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trailers; ESPN’s tennis themes; the IMAX film “Pangaea;” the music for television news stations nationwide — including Salt Lake City’s KSL and ABC 4 — and theme music for the No. 1 syndicated television program in America, Judge Judy. Per the Deseret News, “The pathway Moore’s music takes as it travels from the Garage Majal to the airwaves travels through Warner Chappell, the audio publishing library for Time Warner and one of the three largest audio publishing libraries in the world. Although based in Los Angeles, Warner Chappell maintains an operation in Salt Lake City, and per Moore, all but controls the industrial audio market in Utah.” Deseret News also reported that every time one of Moore’s musical clips is used anywhere in the world, he is paid a royalty for his music.

Moore has further commented, “I think I’ll just be happy with what I have. I’m happy with where I live, happy with what I have, and I’m satisfied creatively.”
