KATHY HINDE | TWITTERING MACHINES
Kathy Hinde is an audiovisual artist inspired by behaviours and phenomena found in nature and the everyday.
She will bring to L.E.V. Festival her performance Twittering Machines, which renders John Keats’s Ode to a Nightingale in Morse code, reinterprets it sonically, then uses multiple output devices to interfere with the transmission, simultaneously redoubling it and struggling to translate the bleeps back into recognizable language.
Meanwhile, recordings of birdsongs are treated to generate further distortions and interference. The effect is of a swirling, chattering dawn chorus of birds singing, real and artificial. The result serves as a reminder of how technology can overrun the natural.
