Soundcamp / Reveil
Reveil is a long form broadcast that relays the daybreak sounds of live open microphones provided by streamers around the world to coincide with the International Dawn Chorus Day every year.
Starting on the morning just before daybreak in Rotherhithe near the Greenwich Meridian, the Reveil broadcast tracks the sunrise west from microphone to microphone, following the wave of sound that loops the earth every 24 hours.
Sounds are provided by the Locus Sonus network and other streamers, together with a collection of live audio sources assembled for this broadcast.
Reveil is different from the vast majority of radio available online: it is not dedicated mainly to music or talk, and none of it is pre recorded. Each sound is propagating live somewhere in real time.
Co-curated by members of the Soundcamp collective and sponsored by Wave Farm, Resonance FM, ACE, SAM, our aim is to open a space for listening to something else - especially, but not exclusively to non humans and from wild places - and in the course of one earth day to provide a sketch of this emerging field.
The project started in 2014.
