CAMPBIENT Volume One is a collaboratively produced recording by the participants of the inaugural session of CAMPBIENT, an annual sound art residency program sponsored by REALMOREREAL. Campbient brings together 22 participants for 44 hours to conceive and record two 22-minute ambient sound compositions realized entirely on location at a public campground.

Participants divided into two groups, each responsible for one side of the record, building layers of sound from on-site field recordings, improvisation with electronic and acoustic instrumentation, and digital processing. The result is a work of ambient sound art that is listenable, cohesive, andcompelling, with an induced, enigmatic narrative.

Participants had free rein as to the content of the final recorded pieces, as well as organizing the collaborative creative process in whatever fashion was mutually agreed upon. Recordings were made on a battery-powered, multitrack mobile recording rig with an assortment of transducers including an ambisonic microphone.

By combining deep listening exercises, critical discourse, and collaborative sound art production, Campbient is a catalyst for both a dialogue with nature and a soundscape intervention. Each Campbient takes place at a different site every year. Public lands
are utilized to encourage community and inclusivity, environmental awareness, and the conflation of the social utility of art and stewardship of the commons.
