Event: SoundCamp, 2-3 May 2015

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. 

Reveil starts in Rotherhithe near the Greenwich Meridian and travels West from one open microphone to the next, picking up audio feeds from forest cams, very low frequency receivers, deep ocean hydrophones and a network of soundcamps and individual streamers in a sequence lasting one earth day.

Each camp provides a listening and broadcasting point as well as a programme of workshops and walks.

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.
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.
