The House of Sound

“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
