Off Grid

1 to 2 May 2021


Soundcamp 2021 will head out-side, bringing together events at different scales at points of listening around the earth.

SC in London will organise the 8th edition of the long form radio broadcast: Reveil, as a frame for these autonomous activities.

See the call for streams, soundcamps, radios.

The call for live environmental streams is still open. We especially welcome proposals for streams in Pacific and Atlantic timezones, and from the global South. If you have questions, let us know:

To contribute a stream to the broadcast with a phone, laptop, Pi, see the
Streaming sounds guide.

Please set up a profile page for your stream and let us know your plans:

Reveil tracks the sounds of sunrise from 5AM UTC+1 on the first of May, travelling West on live audio feeds from streamers on the Locus Sonus soundmap. It tunes to the sounds of weather, machines, migrating birds, air traffic - creating a collective soundwork lasting one earth day.

Reveil 8 will be mixed live by Soundcamp in London UK (Grant Smith, Hannah Kemp-Welch), Valparaíso, CL (Fernando Godoy, Tsonami) Sunshine Coast, QLD (Leah Barclay, Biosphere Soundscapes) and Crete GR (Maria Papadomanolaki, Soundcamp).

Many of the live streams come from soundcamps - small or larger gatherings set up to supply a feed and as a way to be outdoors on Dawn Chorus Day. Sites for soundcamps have included inner city green spaces, remote cloud forests, swamps and rooftops - anywhere things sound interesting. They have ranged from audiences of hundreds to soundcamps of one or two. You can use a laptop, phone or Raspberry pi to send a live stream at daybreak from your location.

After the hiatus of 2020, SC London will be at Stave Hill, the UK's first urban ecology park, with a programme of Far Away Dance (ATOM), off-grid listening structure (PITCH2 - Public Works), the Acoustic Commons Study Group (WIND STUDY - Ella Finer, Flora Pitrolo), plus a collection of walks, talks, workshops, live and remote performances from parallel events in Ljubljana, Tokyo, Aix-Marseille, Barrow-in-Furness, Sunshine Coast, Black Forest.

To sign up for activities happening at Stave Hill Ecological Park, Rotherhithe, Channelsea Island inter-tidal zone, Hackney Marshes, and on-line, please follow links in the programme.
