Reveil 2016 imageI was honored to contribute to REVEIL 2016, where my Pond Station installation was featured in the UTC -4 timezone. REVEIL relays the sounds of live open microphones provided by streamers around the world. This year we even heard birds filtering through the water and into the hydrophones.

Starting on the morning of Saturday 30 APR just before daybreak in Rotherhithe near the Greenwich Meridian, the Reveil broadcast tracks the sunrise west from microphone to microphone, following the wave of sound that loops the earth every 24 hours.

Sounds are provided by the Locus Sonus network and other streamers, together with a collection of live audio sources assembled for this broadcast.

REVEIL is different from the vast majority of radio available online: it is not dedicated mainly to music or talk, and none of it is pre recorded. Each sound is propagating live somewhere in real time.
