SoundCamp are an art collective based at Stave Hill Ecological Park in Rotherhithe. Since 2013 their practice has developed in response to this place, through residencies, collaborations and commissions. They use real-time technologies to reveal the site's hidden ecologies and make them audible to a diverse audience locally and remotely. This has been replicated in other locations and led to a growing network of listeners and DIY broadcasters sharing live sound from specific listening points - at home, outdoors, under water - in what has been called an emerging Acoustic Commons.
SoundCamp is coordinated in London by: Maria Papadomanolaki (voice sound text), Dawn Scarfe and Grant Smith (self-noise.net). With the support of: Kirsty Collander Brown (Science Gallery). And contributions from: Artistic advisor Gordon Hempton, Writing Angus Carlyle (CRiSAP) Graphics Sam Baraitser Smith, Coding Max Baraitser Smith, Photography Ky Lewis, Design Colin Sackett (Uniformbooks)
