Ambient Camping: The 44-Hour Sound Art Residency
September 17-19, 2021
Penrose Point State Park, Lakebay, WA
Application Deadline: July 21, 2021
Selection Announcement: August 1, 2021
Campbient is a weekend-long sound art residency that brings together 22 participants for 44 hours to conceptualize, produce, and record two sound art compositions on-site at Penrose State Park in NW Washington State. The residency includes sound-related workshops and creative activities and a start-to-finish audio production process with the results pressed in a limited run of vinyl LPs and distributed digitally. The residency is completely off the electrical grid, and all audio production and other activities are battery-powered.
Campbient takes place on public land of Coastal Salish heritage, straddling the natural and built environments. An awareness and respect for these socio-cultural, ecological, and historical characteristics, and their effect on the soundscape, are core values to having a successful creative and communal experience.
