In her work Cathy Van Eck looks for possibilities to compose relationships between sound, gesture and object. During the presentation, she will discuss her recent compositions and sound installations and how research and artistic output is combined in these. These include a research project with ethnographers on headphones, an interactive installation using wind, and performances exploring forms of demonstration. In all these works microphones, loudspeakers and several kinds of sensors play an important role. How these technologies interact with her aesthetic ideas will be an important focus during the talk.
