Sabine Vogel: flutes & live-electronics, field rec.
Kathy Hinde: live-video & objects
Images influence sound and sounds influence image within a constantly changing installation. A live performance leaves traces that become part of the evolving installation. /... and the walls threw back echoes.../ is concerned with memory, resonance, and the changing states of matter. Barely audible sounds become audible, and fragments of small objects from barely visible environments are projected at a large scale.
Sabine Vogel takes the sounds from inside her flute, exploring the microcosmic sound world of the flute, and transports these sounds into a sound-able-hear-able world, thus bringing what is inside to the outside. She combines this world of sound with self-made field recordings, the natural macrocosm of existing sound, forming a composed mixture between the macro and the microcosmic.
Kathy Hinde works in an interdisciplinary manner, combining artforms in a live context. Her aesthetic combines the hi-tech with the lo-tech for example, using physical computing to control the movement of objects, lights and cameras. The changing states of matter (eg, water, ice, steam) is a recurring theme in her art, alongside an ongoing concern with environmental change.
