Artifactual Memories

FWB Fest 2022 — Idyllwild, CA

Songcamp and Friends With Benefits joined forces at this year's inaugural FWB Fest in Idyllwild, California. We invited participants to join us for a one-day mini songwriting camp in which we would collectively create an Artifact Of The Fest.

On Saturday August 13th, 20+ open-minded, curious and ridiculously creative folks showed up at the Songcamp soundstage without a clue of what was in store for them. In the span of just 3 hours, we transformed from a group of strangers into a headless band of singers, producers, beat-makers and lyricists — all together creating one piece of music that represented our collective experience at fest.

The result is a beautiful medley of sonic resonance we dubbed "Artifactual Memories".
