Matt Kline is equally at home as a double bassist, composer and improviser. His music often combines all three of these areas and has provided him a very diverse musical career. As a double bassist, he writes extensively for the instrument using new and original techniques. In 2010, his piece Fragments for solo bass was awarded the grand prize in the International Society of Bassist’s composition competition. Recently, he performed as principal double bassist under the conductor and composer Krzysztof Penderecki. Upon the composer’s request, Matt performed his own adaptation of Penderecki’s Capriccio for Sigfried Palm. He previously was a member of the Renew ensemble, a group that specialized in contemporary improvisation.

He has received commissions and/or performances from Sandor Ostlund, Todd Meehan, Dennis Whittaker, Maggie Hasspacher, Rodolfo Morales, Thomas Bacon, Alicia Lawyer, members of the Czech Philharmonic and others. In 2008 he was a winner in the Robert Avalon composition competition. He has participated in the Academy Westfalen in Germany, CASMI program in Prague, Domaine Forget, Fresh Inc and Texas music festivals. Matt received his undergraduate in composition from Baylor University where he studied with Scott McAllister and Sandor Ostlund. In 2011, he lived in Paris, France where he studied with international bass soloist and pedagogue Francois Rabbath. He holds both performing and teaching diplomas from his institute. He studies double bass performance with Mark Dresser.
