<< back to schedule The Improvisation Summit of Portland 2016

Date: Thursday, June 2  |  Time: 10:40pm  |  Stage: Stage 1

Golden Retriever was formed in Portland, Or. in 2008 by multi-instrumentalists Jonathan Sielaff & Matt Carlson. Focusing on the relationship of two primarily monophonic instruments (modular synth & bass clarinet), and utilizing layering with a deft balance of improvisation & composition, the duo has created an infinitely varied approach to their sound world

This evening Golden Retriever will be performing with percussionist Matt Hannafin and a saxophone quartet composed of Reed Wallsmith on alto, John Savage on tenor, Joe Cunningham on tenor, and Andy Rayborn on baritone.
