Soundcamp is a London based arts collective founded in December 2013 by Grant Smit, Maria Papadomanolaki, Dawn Scarfe and Kirsty Collander-Brown.
Based around Stave Hill Ecology Park in South London, we work with live audio streams in partnership with other artists, researchers and activists, to make ecological connections across scales.
Current projects include Reveil, a long form radio broadcast of the dawn chorus; the Soundcamp series of micro festivals; BIOM, an audio observatory with Biosphere Soundscapes and UN Live; and #acousticommons, a Small Cooperation project supported by the Creative Europe program of the European Union with FON (Cumbria), Locus Sonus (Aix-Marseille), CONA (Ljubljana), HMU (Crete) and Cyberforest (Tokyo).
Key collaborations and partners include Locus Sonus (Aix /Bourges), Stave Hill Ecological Park (London), Wave Farm / WGXC (Upstate New York), Resonance FM (London), Octopus Collective (Cumbria), Soundart Radio (Devon), NAISA (Toronto), CONA (Ljublana), Liminaria (Italy), CRiSAP at LCC/UAL (London), Biosphere Soundscapes (Brisbane), The London Sound Survey, and local FM and netradio stations.</p>
Group presentations include 'Reveil: new experiments with environmental radio', Balance-Unbalance, ASU Phoenix AZ March 2015; 'Networking the Live Audio Archive', Network Ecologies, University of Hull, May 2015 and a publication Sounds Remote with Uniformbooks.
SoundCamp has received funding from Sound and Music, Arts Council England, and individual supporters.
