The 4th Soundcamp is a chance to sleep out in the inner city on International Dawn Chorus Day 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.

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.

Artists Kate Carr and Lisa Hall will lead workshops and performances working with sounds of Spring in the air and water, while Rebeka Clark and Mike Fray lead walks exploring the flora and insects of the Park. Maria Papadomanolaki will coordinate a series of site specific remote performances with Weather Report (S Korea), The Radius (Chicago), Octopus Collective (S Walney Island), Wave Farm (Acra, NY) and others. Chris Wood will compose with satellite time signatures. SoundCamp will present work from a year’s residency researching 30 years of urban ecology at Stave Hill, since its creation on rubble infill in 1986.

Dawn Chorus walk on Sunday morning with an ornithologist. Saturday night bat walk with Iain Bolton.

Food throughout the weekend by Leon Lewis, coffee from Dungaree Coffee, cakes and juices from The Dancing Baker, bar on Saturday night, breakfast on Sunday morning.

We organise the REVEIL 24 radio broadcast of daybreak sounds, relayed live by a network of streamers around the globe, and soundcamps where people sleep out to listen to the dawn chorus on IDCD. The broadcast begins near the Greenwich Meridian at 5AM London time on the second of May and travels West with the rising sun, assembling a global soundwork lasting one earth day.
