Thames 02 (Materials)
Strange Brew Bristol & Cafe Oto, 2022

Live exploration of materials, objects and their relationships, observed and sourced from the Thames foreshore. 

Part of a research and development project that looks at archaeologies, ecologies, listening and sensing in relation to the River Thames at low-tide. This project is supported by Arts Council England.

For these installation-performances, Brigitte shared the stage with artist and collaborator Alexandra Spence, who often draws from listening encounters with the Pacific Ocean. Listen to Alex's a veil, the sea here

The Cafe Oto performance included Rie Nakajima, Lucie Stepankova, David Toop, Alex and Brigitte collectively playing one continuous performance, each drawing from individual relationships to water sources. 

Sound of Life | Sound Makers
London 2022

"Studying the acoustic properties of objects is the lifetime project of Brigitte Hart, a London-based sound artist whose works explore the relationship between ecosystems, soundscapes and society.

By analysing the sonic textures of found objects, Hart listens intently to their story and ultimately gives them new life."

Come Home Again (Es Devlin)
Tate Modern, 2022

A series of choral performances with the London Bulgarian Choir for artist Es Devlin's illuminated choral structure which highlighted the 243 species on London's priority list - moths, birds, beetles, wildflowers, fish and fungi. This was installed in the Tate Modern garden, directly opposite St Paul's Cathedral where London-based choral groups of the diaspora performed at dusk for their own evensong of sorts, celebrating London's linguistic diversity.

Duo with Graham Dunning featuring mudlarked objects from the Thames Foreshore. turntables. text.

"Graham Dunning and Brigitte Hart presented what I might dare to call an ecological investigation into the sonic properties of lost and abandoned things. Literally an archaeology of sound, Dunning’s electronic manipulations accompanied Hart’s interventions and spoken word, with contact mikes strapped to her fingers as she sifted through shopping bags of seashells and inventoried the dirt and detritus they’d mudlarked from the banks of the River Thames the day before: tooth, brown stone, silver circle, pebble (burnt)."

Is it possible to stop and listen to the roses? 
@tinysound is a sound-based Instagram experiment which uses simple poetic narrative to explore the sonic properties of urban and other environments. 

In celebration of Peter Cusack's 'Berlin Sonic Places' @tinysound was invited by CRiSAP  (Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice) to takeover their Twitter account, exploring sites of sonic interest around Elephant and Castle, London. 

In honour of International Women's Day 2018, @tinysound was asked to contribute a piece for ResonanceFM's 24 hour broadcast of women in sound.

Soundcamp/ Reveil, London, 2018


'buriedsound | tinytapeloops' is a collaboration between Alexandra Spence's 'Buried Tape Loops' and Brigitte Hart's '@tinysound' for Soundcamp/Reveil and International Dawn Chorus Day 2018.  


Over 26 days in spring, Spence and Hart buried magnetic tape on-site at Stave Hill Ecological Park. The 'burial sites' were logged and formed a sonic map of sorts which audiences could then follow, listen and read text from the results.

The project will be turned into a permanent installation for visitors to experience year-round in late 2018.

Text Score for 'Unfinished Descriptions' exhibition
(Tomoko Hojo, Solo)
Hundred Years Gallery, London, 2018

30 sound artists from around the world were invited to create a score which reenvisions a largely undocumented work from Yoko Ono's seminal 1966 Indica Gallery exhibition, '014'. Artists were given a list of words compiled from the exhibition catalogue and other writings and asked to create a text-based score, some of which were performed live at Hojo's exhibition.

Sonic Mmabolela

Francisco Lopez

Limpopo, South Africa

'A Murmuration'

Artist residency and workshop in the South African Savannah led by Francisco Lopez and coordinated by Barbara Ellison. 

2:30am dawn recording sessions, evening listening 'concerts' surrounded by a pack of annoyed zebras, calling to hippo's, keeping alert for crocodiles, observing the terrifying calls of baboons, maggot-riddled carcasses, hydrophone recordings of aquatic life and of course the many many bugs were some of the constituents that made up Sonic Mmabolela 2016 .  

This project was supported by the Freedman Foundation Traveling Scholarship and The National Association for Visual Arts. 

Advanced Wildlife Recording

Chris Watson and Jez Riley-French

Northumberland, England

A specialist recording workshop with wildlife recording pioneer Chris Watson (BBC, David Attenborough) and experimental microphone pioneer Jez Riley-French.


The weekend was spent with 15 other field recordists running on minimum sleep, recording dawn chorus', chasing the elusive cuckoo with wildly expensive microphones and capitalising on the majority of sounds available; wind. 


Below is the sound of the border between Scotland and England. The wind from Scotland turns the fenceline into a giant aeolian harp.

Window, 2014

Supernormal Festival, Oxfordshire

‘Window’ is a composition that was recorded from one window over one week in the small Moroccan coastal town of Tagazhout. In this piece one is immersed into the daily life of a place that is transitioning with the changing tide of technology and influences from ‘The West’.

Amidst the cycles of everyday life in Tagazhout there is another presence at the window. Another story of transition that unfolds to mark the series of events that lead up to the arrival in Morocco and inform the psychological experience of the town.


'WIndow' was exhibited as a headphone specific piece for Supernormal Experimental Arts and Music Festival, United Kingdom, August 2014.

Little Stars, 2014

Instructional Performance, Melbourne

Little Stars is a binaurally recorded, chance composition, and instructional performance piece which took inspiration from events on the Gaza Strip.

Unknowing audience participants were asked to space themselves in a room around a centrepoint candle. Each were handed a piece of paper and told to read aloud three names over a five minute period.


Name 1. A child recently killed in Gaza

Name 2. A star (celestial body)

Name 3. A child rescued in clandestine kindertransport operations in WWII


This piece aims to draw attention to the act of consciously saying a name in an age of information overload and is ultimately an homage to little lives that continue to be unnecessarily lost.
