Just in from the PMF, a meeting tonight regarding a report related to sound that could potentially result in a new city ordinance. Worth checking out (see the pdf linked for details), for those interested (read: club owners, etc.)
Hereâ€™s your chance to be involved in the process before it comes before the entire City Council!
Hey musicians and club owners: The Portland Public Safety Committee receives a report on noise made by musicians and DJs tonight (Tuesday, Nov. 10). Theyâ€™ll use this as a basis to craft a new ordinance that will govern how clubs have to mask sound, how loud that sound can be, and how new buildings can be constructed. If you donâ€™t want to play with a tarp over your head at all times, you need to attend and make your voice heard. Itâ€™s at 5 p.m., at Portland City Hall, in council chambers.
Go here and click on â€œnoise reportâ€ for a pdf of what theyâ€™re considering taking recommendations from.
The PMF are also having a (members only) talk tomorrow at SPACE Gallery, focusing on home recording techniques.
