Sound Walk: Portland's Urban Scene

Urban Portland Scene (6:39) Kenya D. Williams lead a Portland, Oregon urban soundwalk on May 4th that began at the Urban Center Plaza on the campus of Portland State university (PSU). The walk lasted about 1 hour followed by a discussion of the listening experience. Mr. Williams is a student in the Urban Studies Ph.D. program at PSU where he is researching the role sound plays in urban and environmental planning. This video includes short clips from that walk with several stops at Portland's amazing water features. The weather included rain, sun, and hail, which all added to the soundscape. Note that the microphone on the small pocket camera used for this document was not adequate to capture the full sound experience heard on the walk.
