    the Waveney and Blyth Arts Sculpture trail at the River Waveney Study Centre It is open Fri Sat Sun and Bank Holiday Monday from 14 Aug to 6 Sept Adults 4 Under 18s free Some lovely pieces set in this most amazing place 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 1 Image Posted on 1st August 2015 by mike challis After delaying the build because of all the rain at the end of July we finally went ahead and built the structure on 1st August 2015 Dan Clarke came with his straw bale building expertise and I was helped by Pam Katie Sam Barnaby and Louise one of the curators I took a stop motion video of the build for SoundHide at the River Waveney Study Centre for the 2015 Sculpture Trail Waveney and Blyth Arts The Hide will house a sound installation of the wildlife recordings made at the site over the last 6 months We had a fantastic day Perfect weather The walls went up by lunchtime and then we had to fit the roof This was much slower First we installed the pole and set a Land Rover rim onto it The rafters were fed into this and a screw held them in place It had involved trigonometry to design the roof so that we could use the sheets of ply cut on the diagonal With 12 rafters we needed about 2 feet of lift in the middle to reduce the angle at the centre from 30 to the 26 you get when ripping the ply on the diagonal Even so each section had to be marked up and cut individually After a long 10 hour day we got the roof in place SoundHide Electronics Image

    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

    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
