SoundCamp is a series of outdoor listening events on International Dawn Chorus Day, linked by Reveil : a 24 hour broadcast of the sounds of daybreak, relayed live by audio streamers around the globe.
Soundcamps in the UK will be at: Stave Hill Ecological Park, London; Piel View House, Furness Peninsula, Cumbria; Dartington Hall, Totnes, Devon; Ulster Museum, Belfast. And in: Upper Hudson, NY; Chicago; Toronto; Fortore, Italy; Ljubljana, Slovenia; Põlva County, Estonia.
Reveil starts in Rotherhithe near the Greenwich Meridian and travels West from one open microphone to the next, following the wave of sound that loops the earth with the rising sun,picking up audio feeds from forest cams, very low frequency receivers, deep ocean hydrophones, space radio stations, and a network of soundcamps and streamers, in a sequence lasting one earth day.
Visitors to each soundcamp can take part in artist led activities that turn the site into a broadcasting and listening point, and explore the local sound ecology through workshops and dawn walks and by camping out overnight.
Reveil is a both a soundwork and a catalyst for the development of a wider and more diverse live audio network.
Contributors include Zach Poff, Rui Chaves, Eric Leonardson, Anna Friz, Peter Cusack, Lee Paterson, Helmut Lemke, Tony Whitehead, Sarah Gray, Richard Povall, Angus Carlyle, John Grzinich, Leandro Pisano, Raffaele Mariconte, Lars Johansson, Udo Noll, Dawn Scarfe, Ky Lewis, with additional streamers at Locus Sonus and elsewhere.
