The Quiet Music Festival of Portland opens tonight at Disjecta. For more information, the schedule and tickets, click here.
“The idea of the show,” explains Chris Johanson, “came because I love music, but don’t like to be around loud music anymore. Quiet music is so calm and peaceful and yin. I find that quiet music is restorative and want to celebrate it through having a concert in a community art space. Sharing it in this context will show how nice it is that music does not have to be so loud to create an emotional experience. All of the bands are people that I know, and we just want to have a good party with good people and grow the circle of friends.”

Artist Chris Johanson is pleased to present the Quiet Music Festival of Portland in collaboration with local arts and cultural organization Disjecta. Celebrating the power of quiet music, the two-day music event opens on Friday, August 12, 2011, and marks the debut of the annual series. Thoughtfully curated by Johanson, the festival features special performances by a spectrum of bands from across the country, highlighting this unique genre of “emotional, vibrant and low volume” music. 
 The Quiet Music Festival of Portland showcases many exclusive acts by musicians performing outside of their normal milieu, including: Rare solo performances by Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio, Tom Greenwood from Jackie-O Motherfucker, Stephen Malkmus of Pavement and the Jicks, and Franklin’s Mint with Phil Franklin of Sun Burned Hand of the Man.
Two-piece sets by Lucky Dragons from Los Angeles, The Golden Bears with Seth Lorinczi and Julianna Bright formerly of the Quails, and performing and visual artist Christine Shields. Sun Foot will present a three-piece set with members Chris Johanson, Ron Burns, and Brian Mumford.
 The line-up also features Larry Yes of Portland, Chris Kaup, and Brian Mumford performing under the moniker Dragging an Ox Through Water. Limited-edition silkscreen posters designed by Johanna Jackson and Dana Dart-McLean will be available for sale as well as a selection of hard-to-find and handmade band merchandise. “The idea of the show,” explains Chris Johanson, “came because I love music, but don’t like to be around loud music anymore.
