Clint Dodson is a drummer and percussionist based in Los Angeles. His unique and propulsive drumming style is a product of his background in jazz, new music, and North Indian tabla performance. He views his playing and composition as a natural extension of the works of Paul Motian, Milford Graves, Andrew Cyrille, and Han Bennink. He has studied with such respected musicians as Joe LaBarbera, Swapan Chaudhury, Vinny Golia, Amy Knoles, Jonathan Hepfer, and Dana Hall, among others.
Clint Dodson’s music searches for common ground between free improvisation, jazz heritage, new music composition, and post-punk energy, resulting in highly malleable structures and a churning, kinetic rhythmic concept. He has performed and recorded with such Los Angeles artists as Vinny Golia and Darek Oleszkiewicz. He is also a member of the Los Angeles punk-jazz collective OFF CELL.
