Old Town Soundscapes: A Sound Art Installation
September 19, 2017 Created by the Old Town History Project’s Jacqueline Peterson-Loomis, recorded and mixed by Larry Johnson, and produced in association with Charles Morrow Sound for Innovative Housing, Inc., the Soundscape series is aural theatre. Layered combinations of voice, music, story fragments, ambient and recorded effects are projected from the facades of four historic Old Town buildings, creating discrete sound envelopes. Those walking by are viscerally swept into the shifting landscapes of Portland’s multicultural past. Funding for this project generously provided by the Oregon Cultural Trust, Prosper Portland, and Central City Concern.
