Join Octopus and invited artists for a night of field recording, live streaming and creative writing in celebration of International Dawn Chorus Day.
This year’s event takes the Coach House building in Ulverston’s Ford Park as a base for sound walks exploring nearby woods, farmland and canal banks to gather materials for an online broadcast. We will also be streaming the dawn chorus live between 5am and 6am, linking toReveil: a 24 hour broadcastof the sounds of daybreak, relayed live by audio streamers around the globe. A full, detailed schedule for the event and details of workshop leaders will be posted here shortly.
*Please note that you will need to bring sturdy shoes and wet weather gear!
Reveil starts in Rotherhithe near the Greenwich Meridian and travels West from one open microphone to the next, following the wave of sound that loops the earth with the rising sun, picking up audio feeds from forest cams, very low frequency receivers, deep ocean hydrophones, space radio stations, and a network of soundcamps and streamers, in a sequence lasting one earth day.
Each soundcamp will be set up in a unique location, where visitors can take part in artist led activities that turn the site into a broadcasting and listening point, and explore the local sound ecology through workshops and dawn walks and by camping out overnight.
