Summer Camp




Audiotalaia Summer Camp is a workshop, a residency, and a collective experience centered around creativity, sound, and technology. The meeting looks after shaping a creative practice focused on sound and driven by a collective workflow.

The Camp joins every summer, since 2016, young and creative people involved in the fields of fine arts, music, design, architecture, photography, filmmaking, etc. The goal is to assemble a group of unique and diverse individuals that aim to integrate sound into their personal creative processes, from a wide variety of disciplines, cultures, and backgrounds.

Audiotalaia Summer Camp is a creative meeting in which the sound, the technology, and the landscape are being approached in several creative processes over nine days. 

The whole program has been designed to focus attention and efforts on the practical aspect of a learning process. The theoretical and conceptual side of the artistic practice will be spread across feedback sessions, open debates, and daily workflow. 

The stay is divided into two main stages: the first is focused on building a collaborative framework through tutored and daily projects tackling various formats within the sound art practice with a strong focus on process, feedback, and collective debate. 

The second part of the camp focuses on the development of a series of projects in which participants will have to collectively shape installations, concerts, and performances that will be presented during a final event open to local audiences and the general public.

All activities during the camp will revolve around aspects such as listening experiences, composition, field recordings, installation, sound sculptures, site-specific interventions, live performances among others.

Summer camp is a collective and living together experience. This means that participants will share various rooms with bunks or beds and common spaces. 

The creative and experimental tasks are combined with several daily routines in which the group will work as a team. This stay is a process of immersion and intensive work: a week to work, learn, and share collectively.

Audiotalaia Summer Camp is an initiative lead by musician, producer, and sound artist Edu Comelles, external collaborators, and Alberg Rural El Polell.


"The worst part of the Summer Camp is that it ends" 

"... an amazing experience. The great thing was that everyone was collaborative and friendly, there was no one preventing the group from being well blended and in harmony.”

“I think it’s been a life-changing experience.”

"The environment, the landscape and devotion of the organizers, it all helps to make this the perfect place to work collectively in creative projects” 

"I am already envying those who will participate next year."

" The experience has been great, I think it has exceeded all expectations that one might have imagined”

“The best it’s been to be able to see first hand how Edu and everybody else approach a project, from the germ of the idea to finalizing it”
