LOUIE LOUIE as an art installation in Federal building

Here’s a nice little story about a new art installation at a Federal building in Portland, Oregon = the town where the Kingsmen recorded LOUIE LOUIE, courtesy of OregonLive.com:

May 29, 2013 – Portland, OR – Artist Tim Bavington turned sound waves from the song “Louie Louie” by The Kingsmen into a colorful sculpture that dominates the wall of the main entrance into the building. The Kingsmen were a Portland band. Although they did not write the song, their recording of it remains a rock classic. Sen. Ron Wyden toured the newly renovated Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt federal building in downtown Portland Wednesday morning, a day before it opens to the public.
