Durational Broadcast (5/6): Reveil 2017
Wave Farm is pleased to co-present SoundCamp's fourth iteration of Reveil May 6-7, 2017. Broadcast live on Wave Farm's WGXC 90.7-FM, Reveil is a live 24-hour broadcast of the sounds of daybreak, relayed by audio streamers around the world.
Reveil begins at midnight Eastern Daylight Time (5 a.m. in London time (UTC+1) where the broadcast first originates) and travels West just ahead of sunrise on a wave of live sounds relayed by streamers around the world. Reveil passes from urban rooftops to deep ocean hydrophones to remote forests in a 24-hour audit of the earth on International Dawn Chorus Day.
As daylight breaks at Wave Farm in Acra, NY, Reveil listeners will hear a special mix of sounds revealed by Zach Poff's "Pond Station," Quintron's "Weather Warlock," and live microphones planted throughout the Wave Farm property. New in 2017, a series of special live performances will take place throughout the 24-hour broadcast. From 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Wave Farm's Tom Roe will perform using the same site-specific sounds that informed Wave Farm's daybreak feed 12 hours earlier.
In 2017 Reveil welcomes new streams from Tehran (Atefeh Khas), New York (Dominic Garcia-Hall), South Walney Island (Octopus Collective with Cumbria Wildlife Trust), Cali, Colombia (Kristian Paul PeÃ±aranda Rojas), Maputo, Mozambique (Joao Bento), Noosa Biosphere Reserve, Australia (Leah Barclay), and Fukushima Exclusion Zone (Hill Hiroki Kobayashi).
