Kathy Hinde presents Twittering Machines where she uses morse code blips, music boxes and broken toy pianos to conjure up the impression of a huge flock of birds flying around the space.

Humankind maintains an ongoing fascination with attempts to decipher, understand and categorise birdsong and animal communication. In Twittering Machines, Kathy Hinde invites us to ponder upon these fascinations by playing with birdsong imitation, translation, message sending, encryption, interference, miscommunications, and mappings. The performance samples morse code blips and beeps from records combined with music boxes, dulcitone, broken toy pianos, bird imitation and decoy toys, various broken piano parts and detritus to conjure up the impression of a huge flock of birds flying around the space.

Devised & performed by: Kathy Hinde
Software programmed by: Matthew Olden

About the artist

Kathy Hinde’s work grows from a partnership between nature and technology expressed through audio-visual installations and performances that combine sound, sculpture, image and light. She creates work that is generative; that evolves; that can be different each time it is experienced. Kathy aims to create work that gives rise to a poetic and reflective experience that enriches an appreciation of the everyday, inviting a heightened awareness of the world around us.
Kathy frequently works in collaboration with other practitioners and scientists and often actively involves the audience in the creative process. She has created light and sound installations in public spaces, including urban streets, woodlands and forests.
She has shown work extensively across Europe, China, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, USA, Canada, Colombia, Mexico, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand.
