InspiralLondon Collective Reveil 9 Pitcher Walk

April 30 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

£6

On 30th April – Join our Reveil 9 Pitcher Walk – a soundcamp inspired and collaborative walk streaming across North Southwark to arrive at Stave Hill Ecology Centre around 12/12.30pm for a welcome Leon nourishing lunch for £7.

Or listen the walk stream live 10.30am to 12.30pm Saturday 30th April HERE

We will meet at Peckham Rye Station at 10.30 am sharp to walk along the lost waterways of Surrey Canal, up to Glengall Road (crossing Old Kent Road) to marvel at the Beautification plane trees, then across towards MillWall and the new greenway to Southwark Park – to walk from Canada Water then onto Stave Hill. We will be sharing some InspiralLondon livestreaming – exploring through unexpected soundscapes, some of the lost or hidden ecological infrastructure found across North Southwark as we move toward Reveil 9 base at the site of unique urban ecology centre by Stave Hill.

See Reveil 9 Project page HERE for all livestream links.

Interlaced with the livestreams – inspirallondon’s flowing walk asks us to listen to, and read the city in different ways; in taking care and note of urban ecology through lost or hidden bandwidth. We will also be sharing conversations in another anthropomorphism, vitality (entelechy), repaired ecosystems and vital materiality suggested by the 14th Century handbook for musicians Great Treatise on Supreme Sound:

‘To listen and mimic ‘an emaciated crow perched on a bare tree or pecking in the snow in the hope of finding something to eat… & with the lute a floating sound as a white butterfly fluttering at flower level, lingers but does not stay.’

Will we hear the watery singing of the poplar tree, the sound of the quivering aspen emanating from drainage culverts, the promise of invertebrate life proliferating amongst the tarmac?

We hope to provide an entertaining, thought-provoking but free-ranging walking conversation with all participants, as an opening introduction to the extraordinary world of sound ecology and acoustic commons explored in Reveil 9, and hosted at unique site of Stave Hill Ecology Park.

Please bring suitable clothes and walking shoes for changeable Spring Weather. We ask all participants on walk to sign up here on eventbrite and give a small donation to our collective artist-led project. If unable to sign up on eventbrite:

SoundCamp are an arts cooperative based in London, Crete and the The Hague, working on transmission ecologies from DIY broadcasting devices to public sound and radio projects. As part of the Acoustic Commons network, we coordinate the long-form radio broadcast Reveil (2014 –), and a series of sound and ecology events (soundcamps) on Dawn Chorus day each year.

Reveil is a 24 hour live radio programme, assembled and broadcast from a temporary station at Stave Hill Ecological Park in Rotherhithe. This is also the site of the longest running soundcamp. Real time streams are supplied by contributors around the world at daybreak. The primary feed is hosted by Wave Farm in the Upper Hudson Valley, New York, and aired by our UK broadcast partners Resonance FM / Extra in London UK and a collection of FM and netradio stations.
