Reveil 2024

May 04, 2024 – May 05, 2024

Wave Farm is pleased to co-present the 11th edition of SoundCamp’s Reveil,. Reveil travels West on live audio feeds from streamers around the world at daybreak, making a loop over one earth day. Reveil is a collective production by streamers at listening points around the earth. Starting on the morning of Saturday May 4 in South London near the Greenwich Meridian, the broadcast will pick up feeds one by one, tracking the sunrise west from microphone to microphone, following the wave of intensified sound that loops the earth every 24 hours at first light.

Streams come from a variety of locations, at a time of day when human sounds are relatively low, even in dense urban areas. This tends to open the sound field to a more diverse ecology than usual. The Reveil broadcast makes room by largely avoiding speech and music, gravitating to places where human and non human communities meet and soundworlds overlap. As daybreaks at Wave Farm, Reveil will pick up live sounds from property installations including Zach Poff’s Pond Station and Soundcamp’s Test Site of Acoustic Commons 1. Learn more at

Soundcamp 10 is a project of the Soundcamp Cooperative with Stave Hill Ecological Park (TCV) and the Acoustic Commons network: Full Of Noises (Cumbria UK), Locus Sonus (Aix FR), Radio CONA (Ljubljana SI), HMU (Crete GR) and Cyberforest (Tokyo JP).

Streams are part of the live soundmap project operated by Locus Sonus at ESAAIX, Aix-en-Provence. They also come from independent projects and the environmental sound community at

The Reveil main mix will be hosted by Wave Farm in Acra, Upper Hudson Valley, New York, our US broadcast partner since the first edition. Resonance Extra is our long-term UK broadcast partner. The show is carried each year in whole or in part by a network of participating FM and net radio stations listed here.


REVEIL relays the sounds of live open microphones on the Locus Sonus soundmap, operated by the Acoustic Commons network, together with projects by the Cyberforest programme, BIOM Open Microphone network,, and elsewhere. It is made up of sounds freely provided by streamers, spanning formal research, long term art and activist works, domestic projects, and one-off transmissions.

Reveil 2024 will be produced in London, Estonia and Chania by Soundcamp, with guest mixers Leando Pisano (Radio Tsonami) in Valparaíso, Chile and Leah Barclay on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.

Broadcasting Partners: Wave Farm WGXC (Acra, NY), Resonance FM/Extra (UK).

Stream hosting: Locus Sonus (ESAAIX, Aix-en-Provence)

The Reveil project is anticipated and informed by transects recorded by Gordon Hempton and Bernie Krause in the 1980’s and 1990’s that re-presented and extended auditions of the dawn chorus across large areas, as well as variants that captured the progress of Spring moving up over North America. The idea of a round-the-world dawn chorus recording lasting 24 hours has appeared periodically on wildlife and nature recordist lists. Gordon Hempton and the ornithologist Don Kroodsma have both imagined such a trajectory as a kind of aural surfing. In 2010 in collaboration with Páll Thayer, Ragnar Helgi Ólafsson made the installation DayBreak, Forever, which used a script to create a sequence through the Locus Sonus streams in much the same way Reveil would do later.
