Sabine Vogel and Kathy Hinde
... and the walls threw back echoes...
Performance and installation by ORNIS
Sabine Vogel (de): composition, flutes, live electronics
Kathy Hinde (gb): 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.

About the Artists
Sabine Vogel (de)
Born in Munich, Sabine Vogel has lived in Berlin since 2000. She studied jazz transverse flute at the Bruckner – Konservatorium (conservatorium) in Linz, Austria. The flautist focuses on modern ways of playing techniques, sound and improvisation and has developed her own vocabulary on her instrument during the last years – acoustically as well as with the help of electronic equipment and a particular 'microphonisation'.
Apart from her own projects such as TUNAR (with Merle Ehlers and Dave Bennett), PHONO_PHONO (with Magda Mayas and Michael Renkel) and SCHWIMMER (with Michael Thieke, Alessandro Bosetti, Michael Griener) she works together with fine artists, actors and actresses, dancers and various contemporary composers, amongst others the Swedish composers Malin Bång and Mattias Petersson as well as Shintaro Imai from Japan.
Moreover, she is a member of the Anthony Braxton 12tet that had its premiere in 2005 at the Free Music Festival in Antwerpen.
Performances and tours take place in Scandinavia, Italy and the USA amongst other destinations.

Kathy Hinde (gb)
Kathy Hinde’s interdisciplinary approach combines different art forms frequently through collaborations with other practitioners, partnerships with scientists, and input from the audience. She has shown work internationally in over 20 countries across Europe, Scandinavia, China, Pakistan and Colombia. She has created video projections and sound for theatre and live art performances alongside creating installations and site specific work. Her most recent project incorporates hand-crafted automata in combination with video projections and computer controlled mechanisms. She is part of the N.I.P. collective (newinterfaces.net) and
Polar Produce (polarproduce.org) and affiliated to the Merlin Theatre, Frome, UK and an associate artist at the Arnolfini, Bristol UK.
