International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Ever-changing and generative, Kathy Hinde's audiovisual creations echo phenomena found in the natural world to explore the relationship of people with other species, each other and the earth’s systems. Her abstracted soundscapes and generative art, whether in public outdoor spaces or galleries, uses technology to express those relationships, reflecting on and raising awareness of our everyday world, and involving the audience in a consistently unique creative process.

Hinde's work represents a cross between kinetic sound sculptures and newly invented musical instruments—composed of broken instruments, hacked electronics and a blend of digital and analog systems, they can be played live in countless ways. In constructing her pieces, she draws systems, models, and data from animal behaviours, biodiversity and dynamic ecosystems (with a nod to philosophies of Ecosophy and Deep Ecology) and often employs open scores and chance procedures as she composes. The animal and the elemental have all figured into a busy practice of installation and performance works: birds, water, bogs and ecosystems come alive through bespoke software, objects and inquisitive forms of media. Among Hinde's recent collaborations, she's played in electronic music trio Powerplant, worked with composer Maja S.K. Ratkje and musician Andreas Borregaard on Aeolian (a hybrid piece involving invented air-activated instruments within an acoustic ensemble). Hinde has shown her work extensively around the world and received a number of awards including an Honorary Mention at Prix Ars Electronica, a British Composer Award in Sonic Art and an ORAM award in 2017.
