Kathy Hinde

Kathy Hinde’s work grows from a partnership between nature and technology. The use of open scores, graphic scores and chance procedures results in work that is generative; that evolves; that is different each time it is experienced.

Kathy frequently combines more than one artform by choosing the medium and material to suit the situation. She has created audio-visual installations, live performances, site-specific projections, kinetic sculptures and online sound maps. She is keen to share her creative process through collaborations with other artists and scientists, alongside making artworks that rely on input from the audience. Following a TEDx presentation at Aldeburgh Music, Kathy was invited to give a talk and demonstration at TEDGlobal – soon to be released on Ted.com. She has toured internationally having shown work across Europe, Scandinavia, China, Pakistan, USA, Colombia and Brazil.

 

Audible Forces:

“Sonic Reed Beds”

 

Kathy Hinde’s “Sonic Reed Beds” were inspired by the movement of reeds in the wind. This ensemble of sound sculptures re-imagines the natural reed using steel rods topped with metal or stone. As they move in the breeze, the tops collide creating random compositions of varying densities, from the quiet, gentle collisions of pebbles to overlapping chimes of metal domes. Reed Bed Bases made by Will Datson and Paul Sandimere.

 

Aeolian Soundmap by Kathy Hinde and Ed Holroyd

 

Kathy Hinde also collaborated with Ed Holroyd to create an online soundmap to collate sound recordings that occur as a result of the wind. The map can be played back like a musical score and customised in different ways to generate many different Aeolian soundscapes. Play with the map here – www.aeoliansoundmap.co.uk . You can upload your own Aeolian recordings using audioboo.
