SoundCamp returns to Stave Hill Ecological Park over the weekend of International Dawn Chorus Day 6 to 7 May.
We invite you to join us for a free programme of workshops, walks, performances and discussions with artist and naturalists including Iain Boulton, Kate Carr, Rebeka Clark, John Lely, Tom Mudd, Chris Wood, Maria Papadomanolaki, Nick Croft, Dave Clark, Cake Music.
The SHED at Stave Hill will be the broadcast station for Reveil: a live 24 hour radio transmission of the sounds of daybreak, which loops the globe with the rising sun from 5AM on Saturday. Now in its 4th year, Reveil links ecological and acoustic projects via a network of real-time streams.
// Kate Carr's work explores our complex and contradictory relationship with the natural world. Her music blurs the boundaries between instruments and field recordings, underlining the intersections and overlaps between nature and culture and the myriad of incomplete ways we attempt to make sense of these terms. It explores place and non-place, being and imagining.
// Iain Boulton is an ecologist with the London Bat Group. Iain will lead a bat walk on Saturday night.
// John Lely's Harmonica High diffuses into the spaces of the Ecological Park.. players wanted - arrive early
// Chris Wood will compose with satellite time signatures modelled in the sky overhead.
// The Rotherhithe SHED will devise and install furniture and listening equipment in the Straw Bale Building in the Compound where listeners can hear present and past sounds on a variety of devices.
// Lisa Hall will lead a listening walk through the Stave Hill meadows with robotic insects.
// Sam and Max Baraitser Smith will improvise with DIY patches and real-time remote feeds.
// SoundCamp will be workshopping new Raspberry Pi streamboxes, talking about remote listening, the Live Audio Archive and 30 years of urban ecology in the world's first urban ecological park. Check the programme for details.
