KBOO Community Radio Artist In Residence Lou Watson presents a new score inspired by Interstate 5. Score for Traveling I-5 is presented one afternoon only at Jubitz Travel Center and Truck Stop. The event will be a demonstration on how to turn your daily commute into a musical adventure and includes the premiere of her short film Traveling I-5 (for choir on bus, and triangle). Also; learn surprising Interstate 5 facts, join in with an I-5 music jam and enjoy the ambience of a classic Travel Center and Truck Stop. Score for Traveling I-5 was made during Lou’s residency with KBOO community radio. About the Artist Lou Watson (U.S., born UK., 1971) received her BFA in Intermedia Studies from the Pacific Northwest College of Art and currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Watson’s work involves looking closely at the everyday and transposing it through music, movement, get-togethers and game playing. Her 8-movement experimental concert Suite Sandy Boulevard, which featured orchestrated leaf-blowers and Bureau of Transport statistics, premiered at The Hollywood Theatre, Portland in 2015, and earned her the Kayla Skinner Special Recognition Award from the 2015 Seattle Art Museum, Betty Bowen Committee. Watson’s scored films have been shown in several countries and “commute” was awarded the “John Cage Prize for Synesthesia” at the 41st NW Filmmakers Festival. She recently performed her work 47° 39′ 23″ N, 122° 18′ 44″ W for Piano at The Henry Gallery, Seattle and completed a commission for Tacoma Art Museum, scoring traffic on the I-705 that runs alongside the museum. About the KBOO Community Radio Artist In Residence Program This program assists artists working creatively with sound. Every year, one artist or one collaborative group of artists will be awarded twenty hours of studio recording and production time with a KBOO Mixologist in order to create a piece of sound art that will be publically presented at the end of the Residency. The Artist in Residence Program is open to artists of all disciplines whose project proposals include sound as a major component. The goals of the KBOO Artist Support Program are to support and invest in individuals who are pushing themselves artistically using sound, whose work will impact the cultural landscape of Portland, and to bring those artists into the dynamic KBOO community of local, national, and international artists and activists. Free Admission Family Friendly!
