Jam Stand

Jam Stand is the musical arm of Edible Carnival. We host sound artists and musicians in our recording studio in New Mexico for a two week residency. Links and info on previous residents below. We are designing a mobile stage unit to take Jam Stand on the road with the carnival.

The Residency

The Jam Stand is a sound art and music residency based along the Rio Grande valley south of Albuquerque. Every year, participants are chosen to come out for up to two weeks and work independently towards personal growth and development in the Jam Stand studio. This is time for artists to explore, strengthen and expand skill sets and to take some time to get back to the roots of their audiological expression. We believe that giving artists time an space to work is one of the most valuable gifts and hope to continue sharing these resources. Each resident is filmed during their stay and a video produced looking behind the scenes at their process and some of the sounds they made while at the Jam Stand.
