The Quiet Music Festival of Portland (+ Poster Giveaway)

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.

  1. My favorite relaxing place in the world is my aunt & uncle’s roof in the West Village. It’s even more relaxing with a glass of red…

  2. One of my favorite childhood spots doesn’t really exist anymore. It was a irrigation canal that ran between my Grandparents home and the neighborhood where my friends lived in Wailuku, Maui. As kids we would swim there during the summer. When the water was low, we would investigate all the random things that ended up in there. We once found a cash register.

  3. This is my favorite quiet place… a rest stop in Selah, Washington, on the way to Yakima. It’s overlooked, poorly landscaped and completely desolate.

  4. El Yunque has to be one of the best quiet places I’ve ever been. I was lucky enough to live on a mountain or two over from the rainforest for a year, which was amazing. But nothing compared to being in the actual rainforest. An exquisite and life-changing experience:,_Puerto_Rico

  5. Nothing more relaxing than a Venezuelan Beach!

    So many, but I am fond of New Orleans cemeteries, especially
    Potters Field and St Roch Cemetery
