Reveil starts in Rotherhithe near the Greenwich Meridian and travels West from one open microphone to the next, following the wave of sound that loops the earth with the rising sun, picking up audio feeds from forest cams, very low frequency receivers, deep ocean hydrophones, urban centres and a network of soundcamps and streamers, in a sequence lasting one earth day.
