ACA Soundscape Field Station at Canaveral National Seashore is a partnership between Atlantic Center for the Arts and Canaveral National Seashore. It is the first of its kind in the United States dedicated to preservation of natural sound, following in the tradition of other types of successful U.S. National Park Service artist-in-residence programs located in more than 100 parks throughout the country.
Dr. Nathan Wolek, Professor of Digital Arts at Stetson and formerly Interim Director of the Brown Center, is the artist-in-residence for this program in 2020. He explains, “As a sound artist, I have been using audio field recording since 2005. I am very excited for the opportunity to apply these methods while working at the Canaveral National Seashore. I was born and raised in Central Florida, so I have many fond memories of traveling to the beaches in Volusia and Brevard counties throughout my life. I know it will be a fertile location to document and explore via sound.”
