Scott Worthington is a double bassist and composer based in Los Angeles. As a performer, he plays in chamber ensembles, orchestras, recording studios, and as a soloist. His focus on contemporary music frequently leads to commissions and premieres of new works for solo bass. As a composer, Worthington often uses electronics and non-standard ensembles. He strives to write music that evokes a timeless, meditative state with spacious and resonant sounds. He has released two albums on Populist Records, most recently Prism, which was named one of The New Yorker’s top ten classical albums of 2015 by Alex Ross. Some highlights in the 2016-17 season include a performance on the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s marathon event Noon to Midnight, a west coast tour with composer/bassist Michelle Lou, and a solo recital at UC Santa Barbara.
