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 (he is also, conveniently, a guitarist).
Although he cut his musical teeth in rock bands, new music ensembles, and free improvisation, he now enjoys exploring territory that exists between genres.
His primary musical project is the duo Golden Retriever with Matt Carlson on synth. They have a bunch of tapes and CDs out there and more recently released an album with the salient SF label, Root Strata. This summer they have an album coming out on Thrill Jockey.
