“The goal of my music is to calm the storms swirling around and within us all.”
Moqué is the musical alter ego of neurosurgeon Ross R. Moquin, M.D.
Approaching the end of a nearly 40 year career in neurosurgery, including nearly 25 years in the military, Ross is moving forward with musical compositions that help calm the storms swirling around and within us all.
Music is a conversation–an exchange between the composer, musicians and the listener. At times it is also a conversation between the human and the world of sound around them.
Quiet the Storm

Reign at Sea
This piece was written while on a ship in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Spain and France. It was a raining. The chords and melody were inspired by the sounds and rhythm of the ship, sea and weather.
Kevin Moquin added the lead acoustic guitar and was instrumental in the production and engineering
In Concert, with Birds and Chimes
One evening, feeling agitated, I went outside on a pleasant early summer evening. The sounds of the birds singing and the chimes in the gentle breeze calmed me. I recorded the sounds, and immediately went to my music studio to add my musical voice to the conversation.
Summer Evening by the Waterfall
The natural world is full of soothing sounds. But one must go out in nature to truly hear those sound. This piece has the sound of a local waterfall as the rhythm. The synthesizer is conversing with "electronically enhanced" sounds of birds and crickets.
