ACA Soundscape Field Station at Canaveral National Seashore presents an exhibition by 2020 artist in residence, Dr. Nathan Wolek. "My interests are now focused on locations where people intentionally go to be in closer contact with nature like our state and national parks. These places have such interesting overlaps between human, wildlife, and Earth generated sounds. I tend to exhaustively explore certain locations by recording them over and over, then edit that material into a sound collage that represents that location," says Dr. Wolek.
The exhibition at ACA Harris House features Dr. Wolek's sound mapping visual experience alongside his field recording audio from Canaveral National Seashore. This event is in partnership with ShORE 2020. ACA Soundscape Field Station is sponsored by Friends of Canaveral and the City of New Smyrna Beach.
