Strap on your skates for a special concert at the historic Oaks Park Roller Rink by Portland composer and musician Ethan Rose (2008 Time-Based Art Festival Alum) presented by Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA) and Holocene. Rose’s new album entitled Oaks, uses the pipes, instruments and sound effects of the 1926 Wurlitzer Theater Organ housed within the roller rink to create an enchanting and ethereal soundscape. The evening will include live music by Ethan Rose, a set by Oak Park’s resident organ player Keith Fortune, and appearances by luminaries of Portland’s skating world, and also marks the release of the album on Holocene (USA), Baskaru (Europe), and Headz (Japan).
