Robert Davidson (born 17 December 1965) is an Australian composer. He studied composition with Terry Riley in 1995 following studies with Philip Bračanin at the University of Queensland where he now teaches Modern techniques and composition.[1] He lectures in music at the University of Queensland.

Since 1996, Davidson has directed the post classical quintet Topology, with whom he plays double bass and occasionally sings.

His works focus on relationships between speech and music, often including video elements.[2]
