    to realise it My second thought was that the Sculpture trail was in the middle of the day in August a time when wildlife is particularly quiet So I have made SoundHide into a bit of a time machine taking the listener back to spring and the mating of the Barnacle Geese or the dawn chorus on an early May morning I have also recorded some sounds in water wood and metal as well as modulating the frequency of bats into the audible spectrum My hope was that people with enter the structure and immerse themselves in these sounds relax stop for a while and be refreshed and inspired by these sounds This certainly seems to be happening your sound hide at the Waveney and Blyth River Waveney Sculpture is a joy within a joy Perfect and womb like I now want one visited SoundHide today fantastic esp the dawn chorus the rain Loving the SoundHide particularly the bat collection Was at SoundHide today and very impressed Such inventive use of natural sound to stir emotions Speaker positioning superb I thought for a long time about making the structure interactive but didn t want people to spend time trying to work out how it worked as I do whenever I go into an interactive installation I wanted them to just listen So I decided that I would put the interaction outside the structure and make a board that had images of the birds and animals I have recorded and a button to press to hear the sound that animal makes I was going to use capacitance technology so you only had to touch the picture but there were two problems firstly how would people know to touch I d have to have a big sign and then it became really

    design Posted on 10th August 2015 by mike challis I wanted the spot sound board to be educational and hopefully fun so I used a pyro pen to burn images of the various fauna onto plywood and then fixed those onto plywood backing I most of the images myself my daughter did two and it was really fun I was given a bird book my my dad when I was 10 and I still have it I used to enjoy copying the images out then and so I decided to do this again It was very therapeutic I hope you like them Also I wanted the electronics to be visible to those that were curious as to how SoundHide worked so these were mounted behind a perspex sheet Composing SoundHide Image Posted on 4th August 2015 by mike challis Composing the sound loop for the hide involved trawling though hours of recordings made on 10 recording trips to the River Waveney Centre from March to July I looked at several ways of grouping these sounds and ended up concluding that the journey I made recording the sounds and getting to know the site was the only way to make sense of the sounds They needed to be grouped in terms of the time of year time of day and the prevailing weather I made 10 sections and then put these into 3 movements for the installation I edited them with the wonderful Amadeus software and then mixed them using Digital Performer I made each section in two stereo mixes front and back as I couldn t be sure of synchronising the stereo sound players needed to run from battery Digital performer has the wonderful ability of having as many sequences you like in one project and this made it easy to build the piece in 10 movements and then assemble it Finally I put it all together in three movements with my voice announcing these so that the audience in the installation could get an idea of where they were in the loop Building SoundHide Day 2 Posted on 2nd August 2015 by mike challis Having got the roof on I decided that we had to change the plan We were going to put straw bales on the roof too However the roof looked stupid with the bales on and covering with tarps spoilt the look Inside the plywood roof was giving a horrible echo which I could have predicted if I had thought about it So we decided the straw would go inside the roof held in place by material which would deaden the space and reduce the outside noise The plywood on the roof now had to be extended to cover the bales completely and given some protection to the elements More plywood was got from Atlantic in Earsham and away we went The outside grew and grew into a wonderful viable shape that included sheltered seating areas and the inside became beautiful especially when lit by the
