It’s a soothecore summit…
Chris Johanson, founder and curator of the Portland fest since 2011, is also a visual artist whose work is included in the Tang’s current exhibition “I was a double.” He has performed at each of the Portland fests with his band Sun Foot, and they’ll be in Saratoga Springs to perform on Thursday as well. Johnson describes the festival as “a communal listening experience that celebrates emotional, vibrant, and low-volume music honoring the quiet act of listening.”
He also says, it’s “the only festival where sleeping is encouraged.”
The music starts at 5pm on Thursday. Admission is free, and festival-goers are welcome to come and go throughout the evening’s performances.
Here’s the line-up of performers scheduled for the Tang Museum’s Quiet Music Festival:
