Stevie Wishart
hurdy gurdy - electronics



As a composer and performer Wishart explores contemporary and medieval extremes. During the last decade she has increasingly worked in Belgium, living initially in Gent and now in Brussels. Moving between Australia and Europe, her work draws on these contrasting landscapes and histories (bush/ urban), and also between arcane technologies such as the hurdy-gurdy, and present-day electronic music, such as digital, analogue and interactive sound generation and processing. Improvised and multimedia processes are used in many of her projects and are seen as a link between medieval and present-day art forms.
