Natural sounds in the least sound-polluted locations possible, across various time zones, are recorded and streamed on the internet over 24 hours. Listeners can hear the adancing change from night to day, light and shadow, during times of day when birds, amphibians and insects are often heard best. This event has been organized by the British community art organization Soundcamp since 2014.

Live audio is sent to the Locusonus web server via smartphones, microphones connected to computers, as well as professional broadcasting technology, and made available over the internet to be heard anywhere by anyone.

Every year dozens of ornithologists, laymen, community radio aficionados and experts from research institutes of science participate in the event. Together they observe, record and study the planetary soundscape at the break of day as it progresses around the world. In addition to the radio project, Reveil also runs an information network of interconnected and independent community micro-festivals — “listening camps,” during which hundreds of listeners of “natural radio” gather in different countries to experience the International Day of Listening to the Sounds of Dawn on the night of 2–3 May, bivouacing in tents in city parks, groves, forests, meadows, and nature reserves.

The Reveil SoundCamp aims to draw attention to the state of the environment and create a network of monitoring microphones that can inspire artists, environmental activists, and others, and also serve as civic monitoring to study the environmental changes the world has been undergoing in recent years.
