October 21st, 2010

On October 20, 2010, President Obama came to Portland to do some political things. A large group of people came to see him and also to protest him. The protesters were making the most noise, so I recorded them. Mainly it is a guy with a megaphone yelling some not very nice things to my left and to my right other more political protesters. I do not mean for this recording to suggest that I endorse anything being said by anyone, it was just an audio event that I felt needed to be captured. Recorded with a stereo pair of AT4021 mics into a modified Marantz PMD 661 and not edited at all other than converted to flac format.

    I'm using part of this protest file in a concept album I'm working on if that's alright. I will give proper credit as with other sounds from the site that I'm using. Thanks for uploading this clip.
