SOUNDCAMP   5 to 6 May 2018

Soundcamps are outdoors events on International Dawn Chorus Day, exploring the ecologies and acoustics of surprising places, and sharing their sounds in real time. They are loosely strung together by Reveil: a live 24 hour broadcast that tracks the sounds of daybreak as they emerge, travelling West from one open microphone to the next in a loop lasting one earth day.

For the fifth year, our hub will be at Stave Hill Ecological Park in Rotherhithe over the first weekend in May, with other soundcamps elsewhere in the UK and beyond. For a full list, links and bookings as details are confirmed, please see Visit.

For information on camping, listening, joining as a streamer or broadcaster, contributing or donating, please see the tabs or mail contact@soundtent.org.

You can hear sounds from the first Reveil broadcast in May 2014 in the Archive and for each year via links at upper right. These include streams from the Locus Sonus soundmap, independent projects, commissions and transient streams running specially for the event.

Soundcamp exists as the assembled activities of artists, scientists, activists and other listeners, who share the sounds of their locations and head outdoors at daybreak in small or larger forays to explore the ecologies of strange and familiar places. Tuning to pockets of diversity in edgelands, wastes, innner city lots, verges, on abandoned ground, soundcamps bring very local and diverse activities into communication. For 24 hours they can be heard together in the moving frame of a single long live composition and a kind of clock. Human voices and the sounds of human activities are somewhat lowered at his time of day, leaving the field open. This is how we imagine the Acoustic Commons.

We welcome your involvement. To listen, join the broadcast, set up a soundcamp, contribute, donate and / or with questions and other ideas, please mail contact@soundtent.org or go to Contact to find a specific person.

Thank you.
