NORTH is pleased to announce PDX Granulated as part of NORTH’s Sound Designed Panel during Design Week Portland.
Composer and software developer Chris Carlson will mix, deconstruct and re-interpret field recordings captured in advance by attendees and the general public. What is the sound of Portland? What happens when recordings from all five quadrants of the city are re-imagined? You’re invited to contribute your recordings and your ears to a collective sonic performance.
Want to contribute? Here’s how:
1. Walk or sit or stand, stop and listen.
2. Think of yourself as a microphone, spin around — how does this change the sounds you hear?
3. Make a 15–30 second recording from a location in Portland, OR. You don’t have to record anything specific or musical — be experimental!
4. Email the recording to NORTH. Please be sure to title the recording with your location (actual address, or intersection), and your name if you’d like. Then, send it to email@example.com. Please put #PDXGranulated #ListenWhereYouAre in the subject line.
Recordings are due by 11:59pm on Sunday, October 5th.
