Welcome to the first week of Organic City Sounds! Each week we’ll present you with a unique portrait from the city of Portland. Whether it be a very special person, a group of Portlanders, or an important issue creating a buzz around town, O.C.S. will be here to capture the experience in sound.
Our first piece focuses on something many of us Portlanders can relate to: Big Dreams.
One of the defining characteristics of many Portland residents is their gigantic dreams. Whether its starting a band, writing a book, climbing a mountain, or simply living life sprawled out in the sun at Overlook Park, most of us Portlanders have some sort of dream.
This week, we talk with one Portlander who has dedicated his life to fulfilling his dream. Many people know Kirk Reeves as the Mickey Mouse guy…or the trumpet player on the Hawthorne Bridge blocking your view of oncoming traffic. But Kirk isn’t just sitting there for your viewing pleasure. Nope, whenever Kirk is out, he’s working tirelessly to achieve his dream.
