quiet village

The Quiet Village is a one-day “anti”-festival of ambient music held in and around the Village of New Paltz, located in the Hudson Valley region of New York. QV promotes serious ambient electronic music composers and sound artists, presenting environmental music in an outdoor setting that bypasses the traditional concert format and gallery installation paradigm.


Quiet Village 2.0 is scheduled for May 5 2019 at Hasbrouck Park in New Paltz NY. Details will be posted when appropriate. Click here for submission guidelines.


The Quiet Village:  Ideal for active listening, passive listening, or a sonic field to simply pass through… Read, think, talk, play, daydream, LISTEN. Have you ever tried to hear ALL the sounds around you?


No Noise. No Beats. No Visuals. Pure Ambience…
