Someday Lounge presents the Experimental Minifest of New Music
August 14, 2011
About the concert
When Portland-based collective Viva L'Arte opened Someday Lounge in 2006, part of their mission was to a create "a place that could properly showcase the brightest faces of the avant-garde." On Sunday, August 14, artists from Portland and beyond converge at Someday Lounge for an Experimental Minifest of New Music, including freshly penned chamber music performed by Portland's own FearNoMusic. Out from New York, new music ensemble thingNY's Paul Pinto and Jeffrey Young present a verbose new "portable" opera, and experimental guitarist Lucio Menegon leads an ensemble in his new microdecibel music. Also on the program, Bay Area experimental percussionist Moe! Staiano (of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum) and Portland's emerging Contemporary Portland Orchestra Project.
