MusicWatch Weekly: The Apocalypse will be livestreamed

First of all, how are you? Eating enough? Staying inside and entertained? Called your friends and/or family lately? Good. Let’s start by collectively admitting that we’re Not Doing Alright. It’s been a busy two weeks since last we spoke, dear reader: schools

MusicWatch Weekly: Stay home!

Bad news, everyone! No, it’s not quite the end of the world. But, yes, shows are being canceled.

MusicWatch Weekly: Dress up in metal

‘Habitat’ preview: capturing a city in sound

How do you evoke a city in music? George Gershwin used jazzy, brash orchestral music to summon 1920s New York’s bustling beauty. On Thursday and Friday, two Portland composer/sound artists will create a very different kind of soundscape to reflect our city’s
