Quiet City is a series of concerts that feature live performances of experimental, electronic, and improvised music in comfortable and intimate settings around Vancouver. Established in January 2010 as a bi-monthly showcase consisting mainly of local acts, it steadily grew to become a noteworthy stop on the international touring circuit, hosting dozens of artists from abroad.

Through community support and a dedicated audience they were able to present exciting new music year after year, thanks in part to their partnerships with VIVO Media Arts Centre, Red Gate Arts Society, Blim Arts Facility, Vancouver New Music, New Forms Festival, Or Gallery, Remington Gallery, Selectors’ Records, The Lido, The Rattle, Atelier 254, Merge, Deep Blue, Send+Receive Festival, Powell Street Festival, Society of Musical Esotericism, Isolated Now Waves, Simon Fraser University, and the Soundscape programme on CFRO Co-op Radio who co-presented various editions of the series.

Although a large portion of the sets were not recorded, this compilation features excerpts from some the incredible performances that were hosted over the course of our decade-long run. While a few of these were recorded off of the soundboard, the majority were recorded with room mics. Our team wishes to extend their gratitude to everyone who came out to listen and support these events, and to the artists for their magnificent contributions.

For the moment, this compilation will only be available for streaming while we collect the remaining recordings for inclusion. Once a definitive tracklist has been established, we will enable purchase and download. Thank you for your patience while this colossal release is finalized.
