FEY PRESENTS: June Happenings! (Portland, OR)


The good folk of Portland are in for a treat this month with two in situ sound soirées by FEE, which founders Tigerlilly Holyoak and Larissa Hammond describe as “a travelling music venue focused on integrating music and design.” Following an “opposite igloo” in Oregon’s temperate rainforest and a fushia-colored sight and sound extravaganza at Portland’s Together Gallery (check out the duo’s FLICKR page here), FEY will be unveiling a mysterious new “earth space” venue on the sixth and the nineteenth, the nature of which surely has to be seen to be believed: a tunnel? A firepit? A gargantuan mound of earth?

After a magical show with artists Diane Cluck, Anders Griffen, Malcolm Rollick and The Unwin-Dunraven Literary Ecclesia last fall, FEY is back for the summer. And after much ado, the earth space constructed by FEY founders Tigerlilly Holyoak and Larissa Hammond is open, restored and ready to channel s i l e n c e through the exploration of sound, space and sight in totality; including their v o i d . In the wake of chanting trees, constellations and the moon, t r a n s i e n c e is key- don’t forget your cleanest jacket and sunday hat; it’s going to be a glorious ride.

The month of June promises to be a gentle one, with Sunset and Castanets kicking things off. The shows will also feature visual art in conjunction with the Together Gallery of the Alberta Arts District in Portland, Oregon and photographs by Macaul Johnson. Show goers are encouraged to bring their own art for display, as always. The earth space is located at 8335 NW Whitney St in Portland, Oregon and each show will begin at 9pm. Cost is on a sliding scale of 5-7 dollars.
