Rob Clutton

Rob Clutton is a Toronto-based composer/performer who works in the intersections of composition and improvisation, in long-term projects in which the relationship of the musicians has a central but incalculable role. Rob’s impetus to play the bass comes from listening, allowing inspiration to reside in a sonic imaginary, in which the sound of the bass is the same as the tree singing is the same as the human listening. Rob has two solo bass albums: Dubious Pleasures and Suchness Monster, on the Rat-Drifting label. Oct 12, 2018 is the release date of Rob’s 6th CD of compositions, Leeways, featuring the Cluttertones and Lee Pui Ming
