Matthias Bossi
Composer

Matthias Bossi, a graduate of the New England Conservatory, is the drummer/orator for Rock-Against-Rock pioneers Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, and was a member of NYCs Grammy-nominated Skeleton Key. As a founder of The Book of Knots, a Brooklyn-based recording collective, he has had the pleasure of collaborating with Tom Waits, Mike Watt, Jon Langford, David Thomas, Carla Bozulich, Zeena Parkins, and author Rick Moody. He is currently touring with guitarist Fred Frith in his new project, Cosa Brava, and also with San Francisco singer/songwriter John Vanderslice.

Equally at home in the theatre, Bossi has worked with the Pickle Family Circus, Oakland Metro Opera, Shotgun Players, Nanos Operetta, Berkeleys Central Works, and Erica Schuchs Performance Project. Choreographers Jo Kreiter, Joe Goode, Deborah Slater, and Shinichi Iova-Koga have commissioned music from Bossi and his wife, violinist Carla Kihlstedt.
