Join the 5th edition of Soundcamp over International Dawn Chorus Day weekend
5 to 6 May 2018.
What Is Soundcamp?
Soundcamps are networked by the Reveil radio broadcast: a crowd-sourced 24 hour transmission of real-time sounds that follows sunrise around the planet from 5AM London time UTC 0 on Saturday May 5th to Sunday morning on the 6th.
Soundcamps vary from small forays to events with a full program of walks, workshops, talks and performances. Check here for information about visiting and camping, including booking details as they are confirmed.
Who Can Join?
The call is open for streamers to contribute live sounds from their locations using a phone, laptop or Raspberry Pi. Streams will be featured on the Locus Sonus soundmap, archived at soundtent.org and broadcast live on Wave Farm and Resonance Extra and netradio and FM stations around the world. See a selection of streams from 2017.
Broadcasters are invited to join in relaying the program in whole or in part. (Details on listening and broadcasting).
Soundcamps are run as self organising events. To help, please see the contacts at each location.

SoundCamp are an art collective based at Stave Hill Ecological Park in Rotherhithe. Since 2013 our practice has developed in response to this place, through residencies, collaborations and commissions. We use real-time technologies to reveal the site’s hidden ecologies and make them audible to a diverse audience locally and remotely. This has been replicated in other locations and led to a growing network of listeners and DIY broadcasters sharing live sound from specific listening points – at home, outdoors, under water – in what has been called an emerging Acoustic Commons.
