As DJ /rupture, he has performed widely and released several critically acclaimed albums. Working extensively in Morocco, Clayton developed his Sufi Plug Ins art-software project in Casablanca and led a collaborative music project that united Berber and American artists, culminating in a free public concert outside the Cinémathèque de Tanger. He is currently writing a book on music at the dawn of the digital century for Farrar, Straus and Giroux.
