2023 Soundscape Field Station Artist in Residence
February 18, 2023, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
The ACA Soundscape Field Station, a partnership between Atlantic Center for the Arts and Canaveral National Seashore, announces Swedish sound artist, Jacek Smolicki as its 2023 artist-in-residence. This residency program invites musicians, composers, and ecologists to find innovative approaches that help preserve a healthy and balanced soundscape for current and future generations. Atlantic Center for the Arts has over 45 years of experience in producing artist-in-residency programs that attract distinguished artists from all over the world.
From February 11 – March 18, 2023, Smolicki will live and work at the Doris Leeper House at Canaveral National Seashore, a house that was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Jacek Smolicki is a Fulbright Scholar currently pursuing an international post doctorate at Simon Fraser University and Harvard University, funded by the Swedish Research Council. For his residency with ACA and Canaveral National Seashore, he plans to involve the local community in the design of his creative work. He says, “As a sound artist and currently a postdoc researcher within soundscape studies, acoustic ecology, and environmental humanities, I have been drawn to places with complex histories and uncertain futures. I have been particularly interested in borderland territories, the so-called ecotones where several different ecosystems co-exist, collide, and interact.”
