Experience Music Project (EMP) in Seattle

Experience Music Project in Seattle is an interactive museum where the visitors not only can see various music related exhibitions, but they can interact with them. They have sound-proof rooms where people can try playing various instruments. For example there is a studio with a drum set and two guitars for people to jam in. Here I am in one of those rooms just playing the drums: http://vimeo.com/27063396

There is also this drum circle which consists of a touch sensitive surface with a projection of percussion musical instruments. When you tap on the virtual drum, you can hear its sound. There is a background rhythm being played for the visitors to play along with. http://vimeo.com/27060932

And then there is this massive upside down cone of guitars: http://vimeo.com/27060862

Portland, OR

What I did not like about Portland OR is the abundance of white trash everywhere: http://vimeo.com/27060688 Portland does have a great public transportation system consisting mostly of electric vehicles like street cars. http://vimeo.com/27060074 I found a place to dance salsa - Mambo Lounge at Imago Theatre - Buckman - Portland, OR http://vimeo.com/27060708
