ACA Soundscape Field Station at Canaveral National Seashore
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.
The goal for each artist-in-residence is to find innovative approaches that help preserve a healthy and balanced soundscape for current and future generations. This program invites sound artists, musicians, composers, field recordists, and soundscape researchers to live and work in Doris Leeper’s historic home in Canaveral National Seashore for 5 weeks.
The legacy of artist and environmentalist Doris Leeper has connected Canaveral National Seashore and Atlantic Center for the Arts for many years. Doris ‘Doc’ Leeper lived in a turn of the century home (listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places) on the banks of the Indian River Lagoon in Eldora from 1958 to 1975 where she painted and created sculptural works. She was instrumental in the creation of Canaveral National Seashore to protect the beauty of this wild coastal habitat from development.
