When the beloved House of Sound music store building was demolished on Dec. 31, 2008, decades of memories came crashing down with the wood, metal and glass. Now the sign is the only remnant of a once-vibrant North Williams Avenue scene of jazz clubs, shops, and homes. Award-winning filmmaker Vanessa Renwick has launched a show about the building, at the New American Art Union, 922 SE Ankeny St. through April 19, which includes excerpts from Yugen Rashad's 5-hour radio special dedicated to the House of Sound, with guests David Dawson, Cleo Smith, Woodrow Wilson Jr., Billy Holt, and the poet and performance artist Wone. Renwick will keep gathering and recording stories and remembrances about the House of Sound. Contact Erin Yanke at [email protected], or 503-231-8032 x221 to schedule an interview if you have memories or stories, or photographs of the store and its community. A full length CD of tributes to the landmark is planned. All interviewed will receive a copy of the final release.
