The House of Sound 

When: 2009
Phone: 231-8294
“The House of Sound will never die.” Those disembodied words conclude the audio portion of Portland filmmaker and artist Vanessa Renwick’s installation The House of Sound, reverberating around a gallery she has converted into an homage to the now-defunct record store of the same name. The speaker, a former patron who appeared alongside many on a five-hour memorial broadcast on KBOO last month, had just completed a kinetic, beat-inflected eulogy for the record shop, its notorious eight track tape bootlegs, and prominent role as a community hub along the North Williams corridor. With her installation, Renwick is doing her part to make sure that, at least, the House of Sound’s memory never dies. JM
