Marque’s innovative and pioneering work in the UK’s cultural arts scene is well known and documented, and has been gratefully supported by the UK Arts Council, The Performing Rights Society Foundation (PRSF), British Council, The BBC, etc. Since the early 90’s, his pioneering vision of rhythm and ancestry has literally given birth to a new and now fully-fledged music genre known as “LIVE DRUM’n’BASS” and as such, has helped to “write the book” on live interactive performance events from the world’s very first trans-Atlantic Internet jams (NYC-to-London, 1994) to touring globally and selling-out venues throughout the UK, Europe, Asia & Africa with completely original cross-arts, multi-media and multi-cultural events. This work and vision continues with his 21st century humanitarian arts organization called The CHRONIC LOVE FOUNDATION (CLF) utilizing all forms of technology and commercial media to create unique programs in the arts to instigate massive changes in the lives of humans across the globe. Now officially launched into the stratosphere, teamed-up with CLF co-founder and UK Creative Arts Entrepreneur Mickey Smith, is the CLF ARTS CAFÉ & WAREHOUSE LOUNGE, located in Peckham South London, fast becoming the premier music and arts venue in London featuring a who’s-who of UK & international artists with masses of FREE events since its official launch in 2007. Many events also feature live collaborations with Gilmore & Smith’s Digital-ClassicalTM dance music project: THE CULTURE CHRONICS, the musical arm of The CLF. Going back into time through to the present, Marque has always been involved with the most innovative, cutting-edge musical projects and artists and as such, has pioneered the development of Live Drum’n’Bass/Breakbeat music throughout the world, not to mention progressing the sound of many jazz and world music artists with the inclusion of his patented interactive “Acousti-Lectric Drumz” and futuristic playing/performance style. 2014-2015 sees the emergence of new Marque Gilmore live and studio projects, plus the release of a plethora of new recordings, EPs, ReMiXeS & unreleased albums from the archives of the inna•most, DRUM-FM, and DHM Enterprises (Marque’s original Brooklyn-based production unit), covering a Universe of musical genres and sonic pathways. 2014 also features the continued development of Marque’s Stockholm-based interactive cultural concert-workshop event: KULT-U-REAL™ and it’s new performance- arm: THE PAN-SCANDINAVIAN TRIO (P..S..3), featuring one of Norway’s top producers & keyboard wizards ANDRÉ VEIRVOLL + Senegalese master drummer BAMBO CISSOKHO.
