The residency is inclusive to a number of artistic disciplines, with the facilities to accommodate studio artists, photographers, writers, choreographers and composers.

Hike across olive orchards or spend the time in the peaceful solitude of a mountain village abundant in charming gardens and writing nooks.

Rock Band with Deerhoof




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.
Workshop dates: 06/10/2021 - 2021-10-11
Labelled by Pitchfork as "the best band in the world" and the New York Times as "one of the most original rock bands to have come along in the last decade", Deerhoof is Greg Saunier, Satomi Matsuzaki, John Dieterich and Ed Rodriguez. Kicking off in San Francisco in the mid-90s, the band have evolved through lineups and styles, tirelessly probing the outer limits of rock, pop and noise. They've toured with Radiohead, Flaming Lips, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beck, curated Sonic City festival in Belgium, headlined Big Ears Festival, and released over 20 albums. Like Pitchfork said, best band in the world. Meanwhile, the institutions of modern music academia have slowly but surely focused their gaze on the band - Deerhoof's genre irreverance, unbridled invention and unique approach to ensemble playing cannot be ignored as a valuable asset of the avant-garde.

This workshop is an opportunity to spend five days in the epic Pyrenean mountains with Deerhoof, learning, discussing, developing your playing, building new musical connections and opening your rock band mind. It's about playing technique, improvisation, collaboration, composition, space, interaction and listening - all the things that make an ensemble work. Over five days, a small group of adventurous players will split down into ensembles, develop playing techniques and musical interaction skills, building new work every day under the guidance of the four members of Deerhoof, ending each day with a performance and feedback session. In the downtime we'll hang out, listen to music, watch films, drink wine, swim in the river and hike in the forests and peaks of the Pyrenees.

The workshop is open to people of all musical abilities, and players of all instruments (including traditional rock band stuff but also computers, field recordings or anything else). Throughout the workshop our extensive recording facilities will be available for use, and we'll work towards gathering recordings for a final release on CAMP Editions.

Artists Open Call!




It is our honor to invite you to Mauser inspirational space in Magical Costa Rica. 

Our core philosophy at the residency is focused on Art, Permaculture and Health. As part of that ethos “Art in Harmony with Nature”, we are continually developing our permaculture and sustainability practices within the residency and in our garden and greenhouse.

It's imperative now with the current world circumstances that we take a time out to create the art that wants to move through us. As we navigate these global times of transition, it's crucial that we all open up to our creative potential. It is art that will become the architecture and beauty of the new world that is unfolding...

At our residency, you will have the opportunity to strengthen your mind, body and spirit through immersion in nature. We are committed to holding a clear and conscious space that allows you the perfect opportunity to express your art, reconnect yourself to the earth, and to heal and rebalance.

At the heart of the residency we place a strong focus on nourishing our bodies with healthy food made with love. It's a wholistic approach which is why we serve food and herbal medicine grown in our onsite greenhouse. We are located within a small community in the mountains yet surrounded by the lush jungle, with breathtaking views. The sunshine and crystal clean mountain water will serve as your medicine as well. 

The program focuses on furnishing artists with healthy gourmet delicious vegetarian meals (breakfast and dinner 5 days a week with ingredients that are either grown on site or locally and sustainably sourced), comfortable and beautiful accommodations, ample work space and serene surroundings so that individual or group projects can can flourish.

You will be surrounded by dozens of different species of birds, butterflies, insects, flowers and plants. It is common to have toucans, scarlet macaws, monkeys, coatis, and sloths pass through. There is a stream that runs through the lower half of the property.

We are blessed with phenomenal sunrises and sunsets and marvelous natural light all day.

The property contains numerous indigenous fruit trees, edible plants, herbs, and a working greenhouse. We are located within a small community in the mountains. Surrounding us is the jungle, breathtaking views, and miles of dirt roads and trails to meander, run or hike, and explore. There is a family owned restaurant, Mirador Donde Andres with delicious food a 2o minute walk away.

This is the ideal location for nature/landscape photographers/painters/dancers/music composers/sculptors/jewelry designers/writers/poets/plein air/visual/multi-media and installation artists.

We are excited to welcome you to our beautiful, magnificent paradise-Mauser EcoHouse in Costa Rica.
