Festival Description

The annual Quiet Music Festival of Portland celebrates “soothecore”, a new dimension of emotional, vibrant, and low volume music honoring of the quiet act of listening. The two-day event takes place at local arts and cultural organization Disjecta and is made possible with support from Generic Surplus.

Showcasing a new era of “ear love” for its growing circle of friends, the Quiet Music Festival of Portland will feature a variety of performances interpreting low volume, deep-sonic meditations. Many favorite artists from across the country will be returning to the festival as well as new ones to discover — all who have created performances exclusively for the event. Johanson adds, “This year’s lineup will kiss people’s ears”.

Festival Dates May 31 - June 1, 2013

  • Mira Billotte of White Magic leads a set of fourth-dimensional vibrations and shamanic trance, Volunteers Park transforms collisions of high and low art into dreamy ambient compositions, and Tara Jane Oneil’s multi-piece act fuses stone age technology with electronic devices, creating melodic, experimental music.
