2024 ACA Soundscape Field Station at Canaveral National Seashore: Community Artists in Residence

February 10 - March 16

The ACA Soundscape Field Station, a partnership between Atlantic Center for the Arts and Canaveral National Seashore, welcomes sound artists, Gordon Hempton and Perri Lynch Howard as its 2024 artists-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 10 – March 16, 2024, Hempton and Howard will work at the Doris Leeper House at Canaveral National Seashore, a house that was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places. Gordon Hempton is an Emmy award winning field recordist most famous for his project “One Square Inch,” an area of silence located within the Hoh Rainforest of Olympic National Park. He created the non-profit Quiet Parks International (QPI), which advocates saving quiet for the benefit of all life. Working together with Perri Lynch Howard and other collaborators, QPI promotes “a world that offers quiet within and without. A world where everyone has daily access to quiet and opportunities to listen to the sounds of nature. A world where the experience of quiet nature is directly linked to inner quiet, peace and joy of being. When we save quiet, we save everything else.” During the artist’s time in residence, they will lead public outreach events, such as Howard’s “Sound & Story” workshop, which investigates sense of place and how we can each attune our listening perception.
