The Jam Stand: sound/music residency
The Jam Stand is a sound/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 hope that this time helps sound artists and musicians to move toward their goals or re-orient. 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.

Creative Residencies and Retreats
Resolana Farms has been a stopping-place for journeyers, artists, writers, and explorers for hundreds of years. This gem of a ranchito is a watering hole, both physically and metaphorically, providing nourishment and creative inspiration to many who pass through or stop to rest a while. The signature red cliffs of Resolana Farms soften into grama grass barrancas, then drop down onto the Poleo Creek and the acequia-fed fields to the south. The elements of this landscape are in constant dialogue, a kinetic dance of light and shadow, moisture and drought, of time, entropy, and human energy through the centuries.
To give individual artists, creative, and spiritual practitioners the opportunity to unplug and recharge in the quiet magic of our northern New Mexico ranch.
To encourage inspiration and new thinking gained from quiet, unscripted time on the land.
To facilitate the completion of projects or catalyze new ones through intentional pause and time alone to write, read, create, walk, meditate, reflect, and restore.
Program Details: Residencies vary in length. The average stay is four nights. The minimum stay is two nights, and the maximum stay is one week.
Resident enjoys one-bedroom historic private home, and is responsible for bringing his or her own food and cooking all meals during the residency.
