Ragnar Helgi Ólafsson is a long standing contributor to the Locus Sonus open microphone network.
In 2010 in collaboration with Páll Thayer and Locus Sonus, Ragnar made DayBreak, Forever - an important precursor and point of reference for the Reveil project.
DayBreak, Forever | v.1.0
2010- | Active Audio Installation
'The sounds of the daybreak 24/7; A perpetual sonic unrise. The installation uses the streaming network of www.locusonus.org, switching between “open microphones” at various locations around the planet, ceaselessly tuning into the audiostream situated closest to the day breaking. The placement of the installation is arbitrary, the listeners clock-time is relative, the time of the daybreak is absolute.
'First exhibited at Raflost+Pikslaverk, May 2010. Current version v. 1.0 (a collaboration with Páll Thayer) was first exhibited as part of "Hljóðheimar" at Iceland National Gallery, February 26th through May 22nd 2011.'
