Opportunity: CAMPBIENT: The 44 Hour Sound Art Residency

Aritistic Discipline: New Media

Campbient (ambient camping) is an annual 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 a state park in 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.

Previous participants include a range of artists, writers, actors, conceptual thinkers, culture workers, and sound makers. Additionally, a special guest sound artist (to be announced) will be in attendance and will present their work.

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.
