Sonica
Solveig Settemsdal & Kathy Hinde's Singularity

Thu 26 October — Sun 5 November 2017

Randomness finds form in this new collaborative work from artist Solveig Settemsdal and musician Kathy Hinde. An isolated point of white light suspended in a void of darkness swells, expands and takes on ever more complex forms before collapsing in on itself and blooming once again into a completely new shape. Kathy Hinde’s music mimics this representation of a coalescing of all matter and all knowledge into a single point, grouping initially abstract sounds – from the violin and prepared toy pianos – into an increasingly organised soundtrack.

“The marriage of music and film here attained perfection in terms of both aesthetic continuity and elegance” 5against4 (UK)

Singularity is part of Sonica, Cryptic's biennial festival of world-class visual sonic arts.

Commissioned by Goldfield Ensemble for the touring concert Ritual in Transfigured Time, supported by Arts Council England, the Britten Pears Foundation, the RVW Trust and the Ambache Trust.

The work runs continuously on a 10min loop from 12noon - 7pm.
