Muse:forward Emerging Music Salon: Sunday May 18’s an energy underground striving to get aloft… Sonic textures, new composed works, improvisations, experiments, interactive events, songs that stretch form and genre.

The first Muse:forward Emerging Music Salon will happen Sunday May 18 at the Waypost, at 7 pm. The event has a curated hour followed by an open format. Anyone who feels their sonic art would be better suited in an emerging-music context than in a traditional open mic or new band night is welcome to participate.

The night is called a “salon” because it isn’t just for performance. As a think-tank, Muse:forward wants to foster conversations and new collaborations in the Portland underground art-music scene.

We hope to make this a monthly event. See you there!
