Kathy Hinde’s artwork and music grows from a partnership between nature and technology expressed through audio visual installations and performances that combine sound, sculpture, image and light. She performs with adapted and self-made instruments has created works that combine kinetic sculpture and musical automata in addition to a number of online soundmaps.
She often uses open scores, graphic scores and chance procedures to create a framework from which the artwork can emerge. The result is work that is generative; that evolves; that is different each time it is experienced. Kathy frequently works in collaboration with other creative practitioners and professionals from different disciplines in order to enrich and challenge her creative process.
She has shown work across Europe, Scandinavia, China, Pakistan, USA, Colombia and Brazil. Her installation ‘Tipping Point‘ received an Honorary Mention at Prix Ars Electronica in 2015. Kathy is an Associate Artist with art production house Cryptic in Glasgow, Scotland.
Previous and current collaborators are many and include: Joanna MacGregor, Maja Ratkje, Sadhana Dance, Joby Burgess, Sabine Vogel and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp).
Following a TEDx presentation at Aldeburgh Music in 2011, Kathy was invited to give a talk and demonstration at TEDGlobal in Edinburgh in June 2012. Kathy has worked in a variety of educational settings having facilitated projects with participants ranging from age 3 to over 80 working with organisations such as Aldeburgh Music, Bedford Creative Arts, Bath International Music Festival, and London Sinfonietta.
