Matt Clark is an improvising guitarist and composer from Brighton, England.

His career has spanned 35 years, most recently encompassing free jazz, avant-garde, experimental and electronic music.

He “crafts music as if he were journaling experiences from daily life… this is anything but unmethodical music making.” [Mark Corroto – All About Jazz]

Matt is currently working with MC3; an improvised jazz trio with Charlotte Keeffe (Charlotte Keeffe Quartet, the London Improvisers Orchestra) on trumpet and James Edmunds (Daisy Chute, Tara Lily) on drums. June 2022 sees the release of the new album,Sounds Of The City on Phonocene Records, with the trio engaging in a series of musical conversations, inspired by their own urban environments, and through sonic exploration; interweaving dialogues between three distinctive voices: guitar, trumpet and drums.

The sense of release, freedom and sheer joy in the music is palpable… It is also brave and experimental…

Other current projects include Panaeon Quartet, a collective of seasoned improvisers from London and Brighton, and Simian Carbuncle, a guitar duo exploring the sonic possibilities of unorthodox techniques, with regular collaborator Ade Southby.
