About

Gift Tapes/DRAFT presents a night of experimental electronic music featuring Jarrad Powell & Golden Retriever.

Jarrad Powell is a composer, performer, and teacher. He is currently a professor in the Music Department at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle where he teaches composition, world music, gamelan, tuning and temperament, and other theory-related classes. He is Director of Gamelan Pacifica and Co-Director of IETI+I ("yeti"), the Institute of Emergent Technology + Intermedia at Cornish. His compositions have been performed and broadcast internationally and include pieces for voice, gamelan, various western and non-western instruments, electroacoustic music, music for theater, dance and experimental film. His work also includes numerous cross-cultural collaborations, particularly with Indonesian artists. Since the early 80’s he has directed the group Gamelan Pacifica, one of the most active and adventurous gamelan ensembles in the U.S. As Music Director and composer for Scott/Powell Performance, a contemporary dance company formed in 1994, he has created over 20 major works with choreographer and visual artist Mary Sheldon Scott. Other projects also include music for three innovative short films of Robert Campbell, as well as Campbell's most recent feature-length film Pulchrior In Luce. His music can also be heard on environmental activist and filmmaker Jeff Fox’s most recent documentary film How to Let Go of the World (and Love All the things Climate Can’t Change). His work has been commissioned by The Walker Arts Center, Performing Arts Chicago, On the Boards, Music in Motion, Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Myrna Loy Center/Helena Presents, the National Performance Network as well as individual performers. He has received numerous grants and awards, including NEA, Arts International, Rockefeller Foundation, Paul Allen Family Foundation, 4Culture/King County, Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs/Seattle, Artist Trust Foundation and Creative Capital Foundation. His recordings can currently be found on New World Records, Present Sounds, and Blind Stone Records.

Golden Retriever, the duo of Matt Carlson and Jonathan Sielaff, have been developing their musical language since 2008. Primarily working with the intersection of modular synthesis and amplified/effected bass clarinet, the duo have done eight releases for labels like Thrill Jockey, Root Strata, and NNA Tapes. Their music combines an intense emotional immediacy and meditative focus with strong melodicism and an organic, naturalistic approach to experimental electronic sound. Their next record for Thrill Jockey, "Rotations", will be released this year, and features the duo expanding their sonic palette to incorporate a full chamber ensemble into their sound world.

*Please note that Pulse Emitter had to cancel, but Golden Retriever will be filling his place!
