2 to 3 May 2020
In 2020 Soundcamp is an extended radio event, organized around the Reveil 24+ hour broadcast, which tracks sunrise West from 5AM UTC+1 on Saturday 2 May to 6AM on Sunday.
The Reveil schedule will bring together microphones from open windows, rooftops, gardens, forests, underwater and electromagnetic sites. The broadcast works with the Locus Sonus network to share sounds, ecologies and atmospheres as part of an emerging Acoustic Commons.
Reveil 2020 is accompanied by a program of extended radio projects supported by Arts Council England, originally as a series of site specific commissions, now as virtual projects.
To follow the Reveil broadcast and the progam of projects, and join a conversation on IRC chat, go to the REVEIL PLATFORM

SoundCamp is a non profit arts organisation. Please consider making a donation large or small to support this year's programme of new streams and free activities.
Soundcamp in 2020 contributes to the Acoustic Commons, an emerging network of live environmental streams which draw attention to the unique sounds of particular places across Europe and beyond.
Over the next three years, the Acoustic Commons will develop work between Full of Noises (Barrow, Cumbria), Locus Sonus (Aix-Marseille), CONA (Ljubljana), Soundcamp (London), Hellenic Mediterranean University (Heraklion, Crete) and Cyberforest (Tokyo).
As the project proceeds, it will involve events, workshops and creative actions outside conventional cultural spaces, focusing on sounds as intangible resources which can be shared.
