Hi Daryl

No real insights. There seems to be no experimental scene really.  
Some experimental stuff goes on at the university PSU and at Reed  
College occasionally.

Holocene and Doug Fir Lounge do unusual musics but they do seem to  
like bands rather than solo and they do like known acts, Elliott  
Sharp played Doug Fir.

Small low key Mississippi Pizza does solo stuff. There is also  
Mississippi Records, no connection I think.
I've seen the names Sodo and Le Gong associated with experimental  
music venues but not sure how often they do such or if they even  
still exist. The economy is certainly thinning opportunities.

You might dig thru the archive at:
and see if anything looks interesting.

I'll keep my eye out for possibiliites
