Sonica Kathy Hinde: Tipping Point

Thu 29 October — Sun 8 November 2015

Kathy Hinde

Please note: there are a small number of free but ticketed, 20 minute long performances programmed as part of this exhibition - times and dates are listed elsewhere on this page.

Audio visual artist and composer Kathy Hinde explores the sonic complexities and possibilities of combining glass vessels with shifting water levels in this Cryptic commission for Sonica. Sound tones are produced live via a microphone that feeds back inside each glass vessel. As the water levels change, the feedback is tuned to different pitches based on the resonant frequency of the remaining space in each glass vessel. The work forms both a sound sculpture and the basis of a live performance.

“Absolutely mesmerizing” -

Sonica takes place across Glasgow from 29 Oct – 8 Nov with a programme dedicated to world-class visual sonic arts, presenting emerging British talent alongside exceptional international artists from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Indonesia, Netherlands and Québec.
