Following the success of our participation in Reveil 2019 with the Eudlo Creek project, Arts Front is partnering on Reveil 2020.
Reveil is a global arts project and international web broadcast that relays the sounds of live microphones tracking sunrise in multiple locations across the planet.
Starting just before daybreak in Rotherhithe near the Greenwich Meridian in the UK, the Reveil broadcast will pick up these feeds one by one, tracking the sunrise west from microphone to microphone, following the wave of intensified sound that loops the earth every 24 hours at first light.
Reveil acts as a global hub for a growing network of ecological sound artists, scientists, geographers, activists, technologists, DIY broadcasters and researchers. Over 5 years, Reveil has brought together practitioners in the fields of ecological and transmission arts, as well as terrestrial and marine ecoacoustics. The stream will be broadcast live to 17 radio stations and will be accessible online for listeners across the planet.
At a time of disconnection and social isolation, REVEIL will provide a way to connect with nature and reveal the changing sonic environments across our planet.
The 24-hour soundscape will be mixed live with producers in Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific. The Asia-Pacific hub will be based on the Sunshine Coast, in Queensland, Australia.
Sunshine Coast live streams include the rainforest canopy at Mary Cairncross, underwater hydrophones in Maroochy River, Eudlo Creek and the Noosa Biosphere Reserve. The Rainforest Canopy live stream is situated in Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve - 55 hectares of subtropical rainforest overlooking the Glass House Mountains. A remnant of the rainforests that once covered the Blackall Range, the reserve is a living museum of diverse plant and animal life.
