Free, booking advised

Event type


Artist Solveig Settemsdal and composer Kathy Hinde present their nine minute collaborative work, Singularity, and discuss the intriguing relationship between images and sound. In Singularity, Settemsdal’s video explores a fluid form of sculptural drawing through suspending white ink in cubes of gelatin, while Hinde responds to these abstract forms, creating sounds for string quartet and on resonating metal tines salvaged from toy pianos. Their discussion is chaired by producer Kate Romano with contributions from sound artist Rob Godman.

Kathy Hinde

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 often composes for adapted and self-made instruments and has created works that fuse kinetic sculpture and musical automata. She often uses open scores, graphic scores and chance procedures to create a framework from which an artwork or composition can emerge. She has shown work across Europe, Scandinavia, China, Pakistan, USA, Colombia, Brazil and New Zealand. Kathy is a Cryptic associate artist.
