Jonathan Sielaff (Golden Retriever, Dreamboat) will present a 90 minute durational solo performance at Variform. Using bass clarinet with electronics, he will explore long-form improvisation in a live setting. 
Jonathan Sielaff resides in Portland, OR and plays the bass clarinet. Because he likes to play with drummers and electronic instruments, he often amplifies the bass clarinet and processes it with guitar pedals and other electronics. 

He cut his musical teeth in rock bands, new music ensembles and various schools of improvisation but between genres. His primary musical project is the duo Golden Retriever, with Matt Carlson on synth. They have released numerous tapes and CDs as well as albums with Root Strata and Thrill Jockey.
