The 4th edition of SoundCamp Stave Hill Ecological Park May 2017 is a chance to sleep out in the inner city on IDCD at one of the world’s first urban ecology parks, and explore the sounds of the Rotherhithe peninsula in the company of artists, naturalists and other listeners.

The event takes place at Stave Hill Ecological Park from 10am on Saturday 6th May to 4pm on Sunday 7th May

Soundtents provide listening spaces for the Reveil radio broadcast, which circles the earth at daybreak on live audio feeds. Transmitted by a community of DIY broadcasters around the world, using phones, laptops and Raspberry Pi’s, Reveil is assembled in a popup studio in the the SHED and goes out in full on Resonance Extra and participating stations, and over low power FM on site.

Soundcamp / Reveil will be at Stave Hill Ecological Park in Rotherhithe and at soundcamps elsewhere in the UK and beyond.

What is SoundCamp?

Soundcamp is a series of outdoor listening events on International Dawn Chorus Day, linked by Reveil: a 24 hour broadcast that tracks the sounds of daybreak, travelling West from microphone to microphone on sounds transmitted live by audio streamers around the globe.

Soundcamp exists as the assembled activities of artists, scientists, activists, listeners and others, who contribute live audio streams at daybreak and head outdoors in small or larger forays to explore the sound ecology of strange and familiar places. For 24 hours those sounds are strung together to create a long, live composition and a kind of clock.
