SC are an arts cooperative based in London, Crete and the The Hague, working on transmission ecologies from DIY broadcasting devices to public sound and radio projects. As part of the Acoustic Commons network, we coordinate the long-form radio broadcast Reveil (2014 –), and a series of sound and ecology events (soundcamps) on Dawn Chorus day each year.
SC initiated the Creative Europe small cooperation project: Acoustic Commons (2020-22), in partnership with arts organisations in Europe and Japan. Recent projects include As if radio.. at COP26 Glasgow, Meet Me On The Radio with Hannah Kemp-Welch and the Deptford Albany, Biosphere Open Microphones (BIOM – with Leah Barclay and Biosphere Soundscapes) and PITCH, a portable auditorium being designed and built with Public Works and Michael Speers.
From a base at Stave Hill Ecological Park in Rotherhithe, SC have worked locally and (inter)nationally with 12,600 artists, 189,119 listeners and a live audience of 35,651. We do R&D and offer expertise in environmental, sound and transmission art and participatory technologies. We set up events, workshops and creative technical exchanges as part of a socially engaged practice supported by Creative Europe, ACE, HLF and local funders.
