The global event that reveals nature's secret symphonies is taking place this Saturday from 2pm, as a radio broadcast at the Reveil website, looping intensified acoustic ecologies at dawn across the world.
This year's recordings are set to surpass previous choruses due to the decrease in lockdown-induced man-made noise.
“The project is really about encouraging people to listen at a time when it is increasingly important to listen to the environment. In our visually dominant society it is easy to ignore our changing soundscapes and Reveil is an opportunity to stop and listen,” says Leah Barclay.
SoundCamp are an art collective based at Stave Hill Ecological Park in Rotherhithe coordinated by Maria Papadomanolaki, Dawn Scarfe and Grant Smith. Sound Camp have been working with Biosphere Soundscapes developing the BIOM project since 2017.
Biosphere Soundscapes is an interdisciplinary research project working in collaboration with multiple organisations and institutions across the USA, South America, Australia, Europe, India, Indonesia and Cambodia. The project was endorsed by the UNESCO MAB Program in 2013. (C) BIOSPHERE SOUNDSCAPES 2020
