SPILL COMMISSION

A SPECIAL SOUND INSTALLATION MADE FOR CHRISTCHURCH PARK


SoundHide Ipswich is a sited installation in the outdoor classroom in Christchurch Park. It will feature recordings made in the green spaces of Ipswich and aims to connect people with their environment. SoundHide Ipswich provides a den in which people can rest and listen in an immersing, safe place to the wildlife sounds gathered from their local environment. The experience often invokes memories, sensations and a feeling of calm, security and wellbeing.


Mike Challis is a sound artist, maker and educator who utilises technology to enable sound composition in installations. His work increasingly includes the sounds of nature. Mike is a member of the Curiosity Collective. He also enjoys making work by walking, creating pieces from the resulting sound material collected.


Salon: Soundhide

As part of SoundHide’s development Mike and art theorist and dancer Pamela Harling-Challis will discuss the concept, design and experience of SoundHide and its iterations.
