New Neighborhoods

In recognizing and celebrating mutual communities, and with ambition to both envision a better world and hold onto precious local histories, Freedom To Spend shares New Neighborhoods, a collection of sixteen new works by an international, intergenerational cast of artists acknowledging, and pushing forward, the sonic path traveled by Ernest Hood, the musician and field recordist from Portland, Oregon responsible for the 1975 “joy in reminiscence” Neighborhoods.

For New Neighborhoods, artists from different vantages around the world were invited to contribute sound works incorporating field recordings from their immediate and dreamed surroundings as a focal, but not necessarily primary, component. The composers who volunteered their services include Todd Barton, Felicia Atkinson, Ka Baird, CV & JAB, Lieven Martens, Space Afrika, Nailah Hunter, Jefre-Cantu Ledesma, bookworms, Melanie Velarde, Roberto Carlos Lange (Helado Negro), Barraco Barner, Dylan Moon, J D Emmanuel, Sugai Ken, and Like A Villain.
