CAMPBIENT is an annual sound art residency that brings together 22 people for 44 hours to conceptualize, produce, and record two sound art compositions in a natural setting. Participants were randomly split into two groups, each responsible for one side of the record, with the only caveat being that a continuous field recording base track is audible throughout the piece.

The residency includes sound-related workshops and creative activities, and a start-to-finish audio production process, the results of which are on this vinyl record and distributed digitally. Participating artists camp out, share meals, and collaborate in field recording, sound making, and creative play. CAMPBIENT is held in a new location every year, and all audio production and activities are off-grid and battery-powered.

After a pandemic postponement, CAMPBIENT returned in 2021. In addition to the logistical complications of the ongoing pandemic, natural conditions were challenging, as a months-long drought ended that weekend and drenched the proceedings from nearly start to finish. Participants took all this in stride and with good humor in realizing the task they set out to accomplish.

Weather is just part of the unpredictability in making art in public spaces, away from the conveniences and dependability of a studio. By utilizing state parks rather than private land, the residency underscores an awareness of the commons, and an obligation for it’s stewardship. Public spaces that straddle the natural and built environment are rich with questions of social equity and accessibility, environmental justice and sustainability, as well as those of artistic process, critical analysis, and aesthetics. It is these questions that were explored sonically and dialogically in the making of this recording. Sound artist and educator Anna Friz was this year’s special guest, whose knowledge and insights greatly contributed to the residency’s conceptual rigor and artistic praxis.

CAMPBIENT took place on the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples. Carr Inlet specifically was territory of the S’Hotle-Ma-Mish band of the Squaxin Island Tribe, first stolen from these indignous peoples in the Medicine Creek treaty of 1854. With humility and gratitude we acknowledge this historical trespass and it’s ongoing legacy. You can visit the site of this recording at Penrose State Park in Washington state.
