Portland, OR
Portland’s annual Quiet Music Festival, Chris Johanson’s sleepy little lamb of a program, rears its downy head once again this weekend at Disjecta.
"We’ve got an even softer floor this year so we anticipate more sleeping," says Chris. "This is a great place to come if you’ve ever wanted to sleep with a group of people.”
This year’s list of light-hitters includes Marisa Anderson, American Music Club’s Mark Eitzel, Neal Morgan in a collaborative set with Pulse Emitter, The Mekons’ Sally Timms and many more. Let ‘em lull you.

Portland’s annual Quiet Music Festival, Chris Johanson’s sleepy little lamb of a program, rears its downy head once again this weekend at Disjecta.

"We’ve got an even softer floor this year so we anticipate more sleeping," says Chris. "This is a great place to come if you’ve ever wanted to sleep with a group of people.”

We’ll be at Disjecta in Portland tomorrow for the opening reception of subject, answer, countersubject, Curator-in-Residence Summer Guthery’s inquiry into the word ‘fugue.’ Guthery engages a handful of good brains and hands to sculpt their responses, including Portland’s Blair Saxon-Hill, artist and co-owner of Monograph Bookwerks. The exhibition, sponsored by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, utilizes music, metaphor, counter-intuition, materiality and obfuscation to meditate on Guthery’s provocation. Up through early November.

Chris Johanson's Quiet Music Festival begins tonight at Disjecta in Portland. “With so much blown yang energy,” Chris says, “people need to get into their yin energy and power, and we’re excited about the possibility of people falling asleep during the performances this year. Our mission is to find more rugs and pillows for the upcoming festival, so they’ll be even more objects to fall asleep on.” He adds, “Expect to have good dreams.”
Soothecore ear-kissers include Sun Foot, Dragging An Ox Through Water, Heidi Alexander, cellist Lori Goldston, Meg Baird, Michael Henrickson, Money Mark, Sun Foot, Peggy Honeywell, White Magic, Volunteers Park and a multi-piece act by Tara Jane O’Neil that fuses stone age technology with electronic devices.
Plummet into slumber with us tonight and tomorrow — you can get tickets at the door for one or both nights.
