Kate Brown is a Sydney based interdisciplinary artist working specifically with the human voice. She is fascinated by how the voice sits in the body, how it is produced, and projected out to be placed elsewhere. Accordingly, she has been focusing on live event-based performances in installation environments and gallery contexts. Kate’s focus is deeply embedded in experimental practice where she aims to harness the body’s potential and capacity to produce sound across spaces and at times technology.
Kate is specifically interested in the sounding structures of the body, the way it resonates and produces the normally unheard sounds that the body is capable of. Through this exploration she has given access to ways within her own workings with the voice that have surprised and triggered new ways of sounding.
