Kathy Hinde Audio-Visual Artist — Inspired by behaviours and phenomena found in nature and the everyday — working with sound, light, image, sculpture, location.


Twitchr is a participatory on-line and off-line artwork that combines bird watching, social networking and graphic scores created in collaboration with digital artist Ed Holroyd.

Upload your own recordings of birdsong onto the twitchr map and add to Twitchr’s evolving, generative soundscape. You can then play the interactive map and trigger samples of birdsong recorded all over the world. Customise the playback settings to alter how you experience the soundscape. Include music box notes to discover what tunes the map markers can create by being read like a player-piano scroll.

Twitchr bird-recording-walks are organised to bring people together to listen and record birdsong.

Sign up for the next walk on Saturday 19th November at 2:45pm on the Somerset Levels as part of the Earth Music Festival, St George’s Bristol. Get in touch with me through the contact form on this website and I

Previous walks took place at  Sound:Site, Sonic Arts Festival at South Hill Park, on 3rd October 2010 as part of a presentation on Twitchr by Kathy Hinde and Ed Holroydand a starling spotting walk on the Somerset Levels in November 2009 with local ecologist Lisa Thomas.
