Electronic Trance is a blog about electronic music, the best open mics and jam sessions in the area, and how to create your own music. It’s also a place for musicians to network with each other.
Our history is short but illustrious. Electronic Trance was founded in 2004 by a group of electronic musicians who had been meeting at open mics for years. In our early days we were located above a bakery in South Boston; now we have our own space on Newbury Street, along with an online forum that gets over 100,000 hits per month.
We’re still a small company, but when it comes to advice on how to make your music sound better, play better gigs, or build your repertoire, we are second only to Google.
This blog is where we share what we’ve learned along the way.
Electronic Trance is a blog about the underground music scene in Portland, Oregon.
I started Electronic Trance because of all the great music I’ve been hearing at open mics and jam sessions around town. The scene is much better here than back home in Seattle, and it’s been nice to meet so many other musicians.
My first post was about an amazing singer-songwriter named Evan Williams whose voice reminds me of Jeff Buckley. I have also written about some of my favorite local bands like Slippery Shoes and Red Light District.
If you play an instrument or sing, stop by one of the open mics or jam sessions listed on my calendar.
The name of this blog is Electronic Trance. It is now officially a year old. I started it because I love music, love attending open mics and jam sessions, and wanted to share what I know about those things with others.
Looking back at my posts, I see that the tone has changed since the beginning. The first few were very personal, almost like a diary. I think they were interesting to read, but they didn’t get much traffic or comments.
After a while I started to write more professionally, trying to make each post as useful as possible for musicians and other music lovers. The posts got better, but in some ways the blog became less interesting to me personally.
I think blogs should be more like diaries. A diary is not intended to educate or impress anyone; it’s just a record of what you saw and did and thought each day. But there’s no rule that says your personal diary has to be private; you can post it on the web if you want to.
I think the ideal blogger is someone who is just intelligent enough to be interesting, but not so intelligent that he feels he has to edit himself. Blogs are probably at their best when they’re the work of an amateur: someone writing for love rather

A few people have asked me about a blog I wrote about electronic music and going to trance parties, so I figured I might as well share it here.
I used to go to a lot of trance parties, which are basically big raves with a lot of techno music and neon lights. I went to them mostly for the music-I love electronic dance music, particularly this style called Goa Trance that originated in the late 80s in Goa, India. Goa Trance is really a solid rhythm with lots of synthesizers and samples from other songs that are phased or echoed to give them an interesting sound. At trance parties there would be multiple DJ’s playing their own versions of Goa Trance, which gave the parties a pretty good variety of music.
