Matthias Bossi

Matthias Bossi, a graduate of the New England Conservatory, is the drummer for Rock-Against-Rock pioneers Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, and was a member of NYC's 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. In recent years he has contributed to the recordings of John Vanderslice, St. Vincent, and the Tiger Lillies.

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