Kathy Hinde is an audiovisual artist inspired by behaviours and phenomena found in nature and the everyday. 

She performs with adapted and self-made instruments and has created works that combine kinetic sculpture and musical automata, in addition to a number of online soundmaps.

Hinde often uses open scores, graphic scores and chance procedures to create a framework from which the artwork can emerge. The result is work that is generative; that evolves; that is different each time it is experienced. She frequently works in collaboration with other creative practitioners and professionals from different disciplines in order to enrich and challenge her creative process.

Tipping Point

Music merges with machinery and natural stimuli to create stunning sound and visual aesthetics. Tipping Point grows from a partnership between nature and technology and invites us to consider our relationship with water and the necessity of balancing how we use the world’s natural resources.


Combining intriguing underwater sounds, with scientific data from OPAL Community Scientist Joanne Dempster, and the laboratories of Glasgow Scientific Services, this is an opportunity to learn more about Glasgow’s underwater ecology and discover the various life forms found in the most unlikely of places across the city.
