Reveil 24 Hour Broadcast 2016

Locus sonus map

REVEIL relays the sounds of live open microphones provided by streamers around the world. Link to Locus Sonus sound map.

5am London time (UTC 0+1) on Saturday 30 April to 6am on Sunday 1 May

Starting on the morning of Saturday 30 APR just before daybreak in Rotherhithe near the Greenwich Meridian, the Reveil broadcast tracks the sunrise west from microphone to microphone, following the wave of sound that loops the earth every 24 hours.

Sounds are provided by the Locus Sonus network and other streamers, together with a collection of live audio sources assembled for this broadcast.

REVEIL is different from the vast majority of radio available online: it is not dedicated mainly to music or talk, and none of it is pre recorded. Each sound is propagating live somewhere in real time.

Our aim is to open a space for listening to something else – especially, but not exclusively to non humans and from wild places – and in the course of one earth day to provide a sketch of this emerging field. Link to SoundCamp

DIVAcontemporary SoundCamp live broadcast Sunday 1 May 5am – 6am (followed by a listening walk and audio editing workshop 6.30am – 1pm).

Use the #Reveil2016 hashtag to join us online.

Soundcamp 2016 is supported by Arts Council England, B3Media, Heritage Lottery Fund, Southwark Neighbourhoods Fund, private supporters, SHED.

Sea Inside Us All :: ‘cinema for the mind’

Martyn Ware

This coastal soundscape by Martyn Ware is cinema for the mind. Using sounds submitted as part of the ‘sounds of our shore’ project in 2015 (a partnership between the National Trust, British Library and National Trust for Scotland) Martyn has created a rich sonic journey around the 10,800 miles of the UK coastline. The soundscape includes Gabriel Ware’s beautiful orchestral compositions. The full version of the soundscape is available to download for free at https://audioboom.com/boos/4304096-sea-inside-us-all
