Apr 11, 2020
Produced by New Adventures in Sound Art.

In this episode of Making Waves NAISA’s Darren Copeland talks to Grant Smith, Maria Papadomanolaki and Dawn Scarfe. For the past six years they have been celebrating International Dawn Chorus Day in a truly unique way. As the collective Soundcamp they produce Reveil, which is a world-wide radio program that follows the sounds of daybreak from timezone to timezone through an open and parallel network of audio livestreams provided by volunteer streamers, field recordists and science researchers. Each hour produces a new awakening of sounds from a different part of the world. Reveil will be heard on Wave Farm Radio between midnight of May 2 to 1 am of May 3. Participation is open to all. To broadcast the sounds of daybreak from your home join them and NAISA for one of three Meetups in the weeks leading up to the broadcast -
