British Composer Award for Sonic Art 2017
“Luminous Birds by Kathy Hinde animates a flock of origami-style birds suspended overhead in an outdoor location. As night falls, synchronised sound and light create the sensation of birds flying overhead. The installation won the Sonic Art award – Kathy’s first British Composer Award – and was described by the judges as ‘an outstanding example of what Sonic Art has to offer today.’ “
Originally commissioned by Kidderminster Arts Festival in 2015 with development and sound commissioned by Cryptic in 2016.
