ORNIS are Kathy Hinde and Sabine Vogel: http://kathyhinde.co.uk/tag/ornis/
Uuirmseo is the old name for the STARNBERGER SEE, in which area the audio and video recordings for this piece were done.
In summer 2013 Kathy Hinde had a residency at Villa Waldberta (Signalraum) in Feldafing at the Starnberger See in Bavaria. The region of the 5 lakes, where the Starnberger See is situated in, are the homelands of Sabine Vogel. She was invited to join Kathy for a week at the Villa Waldberta. Together they explored the natural environment around teh 5 lakes visually and soundwise and Sabine introduced Kathy to important places of her childhood. This piece was premiered at the festival INTERSONANZEN 2014 in Potsdam.
