Streaming for Reveil 6 to 7 MAY 2023
REVEIL is an assemblage of live audio feeds provided by soundcamps, streamers of the Acoustic Commons network, open microphones on the Locus Sonus soundmap, 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 6th May (in the Western hemisphere) or Sunday 7th May (in the Eastern hemisphere).
Your stream will be included in the Reveil broadcast and archived at soundtent.org. 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 archive of 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 platform 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 or a Pi hat such as the IQ Audio Codec Zero, with the option to run it off-grid.
Ways to stream: see a breakdown of methods and equipment.
Follow a detailed how to .
Build notes for a streambox with the iqAudio hat and Pi Zero het Hem Workshop notes (with thanks to Sonic Acts).

Soundcamp may be able to provide equipment. Propose a stream to apply for one of 10 streamboxes available in 2023 and / or to let us know your plans.

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 background, see this still relevant guide to setting up a soundcamp.
