Mike Challis is a freelance sound artist, maker and educator.
His SoundHides for Waveney Sculpture Trail 2015 and SPILL 2016 created a den in a straw hut playing recordings of sounds of nature from local habitats. He is working on a new SoundHide for Suffolk Wildlife Trust using recordings made at their Carlton Marshes Nature Reserve. This SoundHide will feature in the FirstLight Festival in Lowestoft in June.
His aeolian sculptures, Beech Cello and Microtonal Chimes, were exhibited at the Waveney Valley Sculpture Trail in 2018 and 2019.
2018 Mike ran Still Solos for SPILL 2018 and will be running listening walks at Snape Maltings during the Aldeburgh Festival and then throughout the summer, and in 2019, SoundHide Cinema.
