REVEIL 24 HOUR BROADCAST 2017
5AM London time (UTC 0+1) on Saturday 6 MAY to 6AM on Sunday 7 MAY
REVEIL relays the sounds of live open microphones provided by streamers around the world.
Starting on the morning of Saturday 6 MAY 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.
In 2017 Reveil welcomes new streams from Tehran (Atefeh Khas), New York (Dominic Garcia-Hall), South Walney Island (Octopus Collective with Cumbria Wildlife Trust), Cali, Colombia (Kristian Paul Peñaranda Rojas), Maputo, Mozambique (Joao Bento), Noosa Biosphere Reserve, Australia (Leah Barclay), Fukushima Exclusion Zone (Hill Hiroki Kobayashi), and Chittaranjan Colony, Kolkata (Sukanta Majumdar).
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 from places where humans and not humans meet - and in the course of one earth day to provide a sketch of this emerging field.
The Live Audio Archive is both paradoxical and fluid: streams come and go in response to technical issues, seasonal changes, and the movement of people and other creatures on different projects or migrations.
SoundCamp | REVEIL taps into and extends a developing network of open microphones at Locus Sonus and elsewhere, as a resource for artists, researchers, activists and others.
We welcome your involvement. To add your sound to the REVEIL broadcast, check the streaming guidelines.
