An Art world anomaly that has always intrigued me is the seeming disconnect of contemporary visual arts and contemporary musical arts. Why is it that the new art is almost never thought of in conjunction with new music? There are a lot of valid answers to this question, but one reason could be lack of exposure. If you never experience something how can you explore it? One of the missions of ubu studio is to establish a connection to New Music and expand the musical interests of Portland art lovers. This has been the drive behind the ubu sounds series, which has brought several contemporary music makers to the intimate surroundings of ubu studio.
