Chris Johanson’s third annual Quiet Music Festival of Portland happens this weekend. Featuring two days of “emotional, vibrant, and low volume music honoring of the quiet act of listening” the festival is decidedly chill.

For the second year in a row Chris Johanson is putting on the Quiet Music Festival of Portland, “a two day celebration of quiet music as well as the act of quiet listening.” Taking place at 8pm on both June 15th and 16th at Disjecta Interdisciplinary Art Center (8371 N Interstate Avenue / Portland Oregon 97217) the mood set by performances from Dan Sasaki, Grouper, Kevin Thomson, Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs, Sam Coomes, Scout Niblett, Sonny Smith, Strawberry Smog, The Lichens, Ural Thomas, and Vetiverrelaxing, will be mellow.
To celebrate the festival, we’ve got a couple posters signed by Chris to give away. To win one, just leave a link to an image your favorite quiet, relaxing place in the comments section. We’ll pick our favorites, and that’ll be that. Unfortunately, due to shipping this is only for US folks.
And finally, for those in Portland tonight (6/14) be sure to hit up Barry McGee & Chris Johanson’s ‘And Your Friends Are My Friends’ Board Release Party and Silent Art Auction.
