Myriam Boucher & Kathy HindeCA/QC+UK
Myriam Boucher is keyboardist turned visual artist working on the real-time dialogue between music and images. She initially gravitated towards classical piano, jazz and then post-rock, before turning to electroacoustics. Her current Ph.D. research in videomusic composition proposes a classification of image/sound relationships. Boucher approaches video much in the same way as she did music composition, through a visual interface that sees her fleshing out digital timelines.
Kathy Hinde's work represents a cross between kinetic sound sculptures and newly invented musical instruments. She draws systems, models, and data from animal behaviours, biodiversity and dynamic ecosystems. Birds, water, bogs and ecosystems come alive through bespoke software, objects and inquisitive forms of media. Hinde has played in electronic music trio Powerplant and worked with composer Maja S.K. Ratkje and musician Andreas Borregaard.
