CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.

The space between composition and performance has never been more blurred. Working directly with environments, their modifications, and the situations which these environments produce allows music to take open forms where spaces, both concrete and social, form experience. 

During this course, you'll work directly with the physical spaces where you are to consider ways of structuring and thinking about music, and various ways of producing. Working with site-specificity in both physical and cultural spaces, Eli will take music as a launching point for work that could take any form or medium. Work will be encouraged which takes into account nature and environments, and the way they interact with culture and technology.

Activities will include:

Exploration of compositional and performance ideas, examining texts, critical listening, and discussionExamining the role and effect of technology on musical processSite-specific work, taking advantage of your location to produce work informed by the environment

The course will focus on the development of a project into a fully formed on-site work, through a combination of discussion and presentation, working together as a group and individually.
