Woodend Barn, Banchory
Kathy Hinde's music merges machinery and natural stimuli to create stunning sound and visual aesthetics. Her music and visual art grows from a partnership between nature and technology. Tipping Point invites us to consider our relationship with water and the necessity of balancing how we use the world's water resources.
Tipping Point explores the sonic complexities and possibilities of combining glass vessels with shifting water levels. 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. Kathy Hinde's Tipping Point installation forms both a sound sculpture and the basis of a live performance which you will hear this afternoon.
You can view the installation at Woodend Barn, Banchory
between Sun 2 – Sat 8 November | 10am-4pm (Fri open 6-7.15pm only)
