*2023 stock* UŠAMI / Sound mapping camp is a project of the mappa editions label. The aim is to bring curatorial activities more to the field, trying to map various cultural and social phenomena from the sonic vantage point. For that we use marginal forms of sound art that links the interest in active listening, experimenting with sound, social and critical dimensions of listening, oral and aural history and the issues of acoustic ecology. We are very much interested in the way how particular places on the map of Slovakia sound; we also speculate how they might sound in the future and search for their echoes in the past. The focal point of the project is a series of residences, a temporal open community of artists and enthusiasts – a camp that would map a single topic in a particular region, paving the way to the most varied artistic approaches and concepts. The outcome might be field recordings, sound interventions or walks, a radio documentary, music compositions or an interactive map. At the same time, we would like to share and spread thoughts and approaches towards the sound environment as well as to seek contact with the local milieu.
