Ben Challis

Ben Challis is a composer, performer and technologist. With research interests that embrace the notion of design-for-all within music-performance, he has worked on various projects that explore alternative modes of interaction with sound and music for people with specific individual needs. As a performer, he works with these same technologies, exploring their creative and expressive potential within free-improvisation. As composer he has composed scores for film and theatre productions. He is a Senior Lecturer and Joint Award Leader in Popular Music at the University of Glamorgan, ATRiuM.
