Extradition is . . .
New ways of shaping sound into art.
A meeting place of intent and indeterminacy.
A canvas of purity, space, and silence, where new music can blossom.
More than just a concert series, Extradition is an ongoing workshop where performers and audience explore new approaches to music-making and music-listening. By presenting works that are generously experimental – giving equal agency to their composers and interpreters, and embracing the contingency of their ultimate form – we seek to draw musicians and audience into the moment, exchanging hard expectations for radical openness.
The Extradition Series is a programming arm of Portland, Oregon's Creative Music Guild, an all-volunteer nonprofit with a mission to promote experimental and improvised music.
