By Soundcamp. Newly installed at Wave Farm


Listen Live

TSAC 1 is a listening point linked to an online network of open microphones. A stream box on the edge of woodland at Wave Farm sends a live feed to a server at Locus Sonus in Aix-Marseille, from where it is publicly accessible on a real-time soundmap.

By placing such sites in the public domain, TSAC makes local sounds available to listeners for whatever purposes. This can be a way to pay attention to under-recognized places, to study their changing soundscapes through days, seasons and long durations, and to tune between local and planetary scales.

The listening point uses omnidirectional microphones which are open to the full range of sounds reaching the streambox. This could include stridulations of insects, wind in different kinds of foliage, birds, planes, passers-by, flows of traffic on Route 23.

As well as being free to listen to online at any time, the site at Wave Farm is open to the public for International Dawn Chorus Day on the first weekend of May each year, and at other times by arrangement.

The Acoustic Commons is imagined as a set of places and practices that contribute to an emerging sense of environmental sounds as shared natural and cultural resources. The intersection of environmental and transmission ecologies at Wave Farm provides a home and a starting point for these exchanges. The live feed can also be a resource for other projects and improvisations.

TSAC 1 is open to the public each International Dawn Chorus day and by appointment. See Wave Farm contact and locations for details.

Test Site of Acoustic Commons 1 is a project of Soundcamp. Read more at soundtent.org. To join the Acoustic Commons project, and for information on adding a test site to the network, please contact grant@soundtent.org.

Wave Farm thanks you for your support.

Wave Farm remains tirelessly committed to making the airwaves a participatory medium. A pioneer of the Transmission Arts genre, Wave Farm programs provide access to transmission technologies and support artists and organizations that engage with media as an art form.

These activities are made possible, in part, from state and federal art grants, foundation support, earned income derived from studio rentals and special curatorial/consulting engagements, and from private support from individuals like you. Listeners, attendees, and collaborators support provides a critical piece to keeping Wave Farm programs afloat, and we are grateful to the many individuals who have shown their generosity past, present, and future.


Wave Farm programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; the National Endowment for the Arts; the Greene County Legislature through the County Initiative Program, administered in Greene County by the Greene County Council on the Arts; the Alexander and Marjorie Hover Foundation; the T. Backer Fund; the Joseph Family Charitable Trust; and hundreds of other generous individual donors, including WGXC Sustaining Supporters, who provide critical monthly support to Wave Farm's radio station WGXC 90.7-FM.
