Kathy Hinde’s work grows from a partnership between nature and technology expressed through audio-visual installations and performances that combine sound, sculpture, image and light. Drawing inspiration from behaviours and phenomena in the natural world, she creates generative work that evolves and is different each time it is experienced. Kathy frequently works in collaboration with other practitioners and scientists and often actively involves the audience in the creative process. Her work includes a computer vision system that analyses the movement of migrating birds to create piano music, a soundscape that emerges from singers ‘echo-locating’, using distance sensors and mini-computers that alter their vocal calls depending on their proximity to each other, and online soundmaps that evolve and grow as people upload field recordings and can be played like visual scores.
CRiSAP and the Sound Arts Department at LCC co-run a Visiting Practitioners Series of weekly talks at the college, exploring the diverse field of sound arts practice. Each term member of Sound Arts staff curates the series of talks, inviting a number of sound practitioners to share their work.
