Setting the Tone

 

There is a lot of chat about gentrification in Portland.  Has the tone of NE Sandy Boulevard changed over the last few decades? And how can we know without first acertaining what the tone of the area is?

 

 

On February 9th 2014 I made field recordings at various locations on NE Sandy Boulevard (between 57th to 82nd Ave). Using these recording I could ascertain that the Tone of the Area (as of February 9th 2014) is G flat .
