Chantal Michelle is a composer and artist whose practice centers on the transformative properties of sound and its potential to dissolve the confines of physical presence. Through the architectural manipulation of sound, she constructs densely textured electroacoustic works that disorient and immerse, inviting alternate forms of perception. Her work has been realized as site-specific installations, multichannel compositions, ensemble performances, and recorded material.

Her music has been published on labels including Warm Winters Ltd., Somewhere Press, Dinzu Artefacts, Quiet Time, and Injazero Records and featured in print publications of The Wire, The Guardian, Groove, and Electronic Sound. She has performed at venues and institutions internationally including Fridman Gallery [US], Cafe OTO [UK], MUTEK [MX], KM28 [DE], Public Records [US], IKLECTIK [UK], Het HEM [NL], and Morphine Raum [DE]. As a collaborator, she has worked with composers and musicians such as Patrick Shiroishi, Lea Bertucci, Raven Chacon, Germán Bringas, Joanna Mattrey, and Brian Allen Simon. In 2022 she formed the experimental noise project ⎤⎤⎤ with multidisciplinary artist Grace Villamil, which had its debut release on SUPERPANG. She is a 2023 grant recipient from the Sonic Arts Research Unit [UK], a 2024 OSUN fellow [DE], and a Master of Fine Arts candidate at Bard College, Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts [US].
