Streaming for Reveil 1 to 2 MAY 2021

Call for streams - soon

Methods and equipment

REVEIL is an assemblage of live audio feeds provided by soundcamps, invited and independent streamers, open microphones on the Locus Sonus network, and live sound sources collected for this event.

We invite you to join the widening network of live open microphones by contributing a stream from your location at daybreak on Saturday 1 May (in the Western hemisphere) or Sunday 2 May (in the Eastern hemisphere).

Your stream will be included in the Reveil broadcast and archived at It will appear as a listenable icon on the Locus Sonus soundmap. It will be broadcast on the Reveil platform and some 20 FM and netradios. Your stream profile will be included in a long-term archiveof the event.

You can stream with a laptop, a phone or a Raspberry Pi:
-- The free app Locuscast by Locus Sonus is available for iOS or Android
-- Broadcast Using This Tool (BUTT) is an excellent cross platorm streamer for laptop or desktop. Ask us about what settings to use.
-- For longer term streams, you can use a Raspberry Pi micro-computer with a USB audio interface, with the option to run it off-grid.

Ways to stream: see a breakdown of methods and equipment.

See the 2020 guide to streaming.

Soundcamp may be able to provide equipment. Ask us for details.

This project is about live sound, rather than recording. (To share field recordings, explore the soundmap at radio aporee.)

Choosing a site, you may want to bear in mind the link with IDCD; but birdsong does not have to be a focus. Streams to date relayed sounds of wild boars, weather, VLF radiation, owls, self-noise, shrimps, cuckoos, air vents, hydrophones, radio intercepts, clocks, frogs. For more on soundcamps's broadly ecological concerns, see contexts.

Consider joining or setting up a dawn chorus event. IDCD for more information.

Once you're planning a stream, it doesn't take much to turn it into a soundcamp - which could be very small. For information, see the call for soundcamps - soon.

To tune into the programme or to to relay it, please see broadcast.
