Trevor Dunn

Bassist Trevor Dunn is already known for his intense musical diversity: 1) as co-founder/composer of the avant-rock band Mr. Bungle and 2) as the ubiquitous sideman of countless groups in the jazz circuit of the San Francisco Bay Area, such as Graham Connah’s Sour Note Seven (Andrew Hill/Mingus inspired septet), Ben Goldberg’s various Trios and Sextets, and John Schott’s Diaglossia Ensemble.

With a background in punk/death metal, the instrumental and compositional studies of contemporary classical music, and the experience of playing blues, standards, and free-jazz, Trevor is now leading his own Trio-Convulsant with guitarist Adam Levy and drummer Kenny Wollesen. Trevor has also worked with the Kronos Quartet, the ROVA Saxophone Quartet, Wayne Horvitz, William Winant, Terry Riley, James Tenney, Ellery Eskelin, Gerry Hemingway, Wadada Leo Smith, Henry Kaiser, Mark Izu, and Eyvind Kang.
