Portland, OR (May 14, 2013) ­— Artist Chris Johanson is pleased to present the third annual Quiet Music Festival of Portland celebrating soothecore, a new dimension of emotional, vibrant, and low volume music honoring of the quiet act of listening. The two-day event opens on Friday, May 31 through Saturday, June 1, 2013 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.” Continuing the tradition of the Quiet Music Festival of Portland’s relaxed, casual ambiance, the interior will feature its signature one-of-a-kind 70s and 80s items, soft lighting and sets by Mississippi Records DJs Callie Danger and Eric I. “With so much blown yang energy, 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.” Johanson adds, “Expect to have good dreams.”
