An Exclusive Musical Tribute to the Viaduct

scenicalaskanwayawv

Our offices are right next to Phase 1 of the Alaskan Way Viaduct demolition, so we’ve had a front row seat to all the machines pick-pick-picking away at the doomed highway. In a surge of nostalgia for the concrete disaster-waiting-to-happen, I wrote a little song about the Viaduct. My husband Daniel Spils, a music producer, added a bunch of layers to fill it out. Then our friend (and musician and animator) David Nixon added video. And “O, Viaduct” was born. Hold hands and sing along, everybody!
