Kathy Hinde is an audiovisual artist inspired by behaviours and phenomena found in nature and the everyday. Her work grows from a partnership between nature and technology expressed through audiovisual installations and performances that combine sound, sculpture, image and light. Composed of hand-made objects, electronics and a blend of digital and analogue systems, Hinde’s work represents a cross between kinetic sound sculptures and newly invented musical instruments. She frequently works in collaboration with other practitioners and scientists and often actively involves the audience in the creative process.
Hinde has toured work extensively around Europe, USA, Canada, China, Colombia, Mexico, Brazil, Russia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia & New Zealand. Hinde has received a number of awards including an Ivor Novello Award 2020, an Honorary Mention at Prix Ars Electronica 2015, a British Composer Award in Sonic Art 2017, an ORAM award 2017 and a Scottish Award for New Music 2018. She joined the Cryptic Artist programme in 2015 and is a member of the Bristol Experimental Expanded Film collective.
