Lou Watson: 47° 39′ 23″ N, 122° 18′ 44″ W for Piano

In 47° 39′ 23″ N, 122° 18′ 44″ W for Piano, artist Lou Watson presents her score for vehicular and pedestrian traffic, using the activity on 15th Street outside the Henry to drive a musical composition. Watson reconsiders the value of being between here and there, revealing the poetics contained within mundane and every day experience.

Lou Watson received her BFA in intermedia studies at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 2015 and currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon.  Watson’s eight-movement experimental concert Suite Sandy Boulevard, which featured orchestrated leaf-blowers and Bureau of Transport statistics, premiered at The Hollywood Theater, Portland in 2015, and earned her the Kayla Skinner Special Recognition Award from the 2015 Betty Bowen Committee.
