News reached us recently that the 6th Soundcamp will take place over the International Dawn Chorus Day weekend of 4/5 May 2019.

Soundcamps at Stave Hill Ecological Park in London and sites around the world welcome campers, visitors, volunteers, broadcasters, listeners and streamers to share live sounds at daybreak.

The London soundcamp will feature:

– The Tent That Can Hear – which recalls soundings by Platform artists at Greenland Dock in the Summer of 1989. What has changed?

– Vision by Jessie Brennan – which reveals how the ecology park’s seemingly natural landscapes have been made

– Sounds Interrupted – which transplants its sounds from the Rotherhithe peninsula to London Bridge Station.

Throughout the weekend, Reveil 6 will make a 24 hour loop of the earth at sunrise, relaying live sounds from a global network of soundcamps and streamers.
