Caterina McEvoy is a composer, sound artist, and researcher based in Yorkshire. In her PhD-research Blue Dragon, White Tiger: The Paradox of Flux and Flow in Sound Art and Martial Arts (supervisor Professor Adrian Moore) she explored a rationale of sound art and martial arts as continued flux and flow. She presented a conference paper as part of the Fourth Martial Arts Studies Conference at Cardiff University, Bruce Lee’s Cultural Legacies in July 2018.

Transition and flux are of interest to her both as a sound artist and martial artist and inspiration is taken from sources including Chinese Philosophy and Martial Arts having trained progressively in the following martial arts: Shotokan Karate, Choy Lee Fut and Bāguà zhǎn, Wing Chun and more recently Xing Yi.

The interaction between energy and oscillatory phenomena are prevalent to both martial arts (Yin and Yang) and electroacoustic music (where one might situate and navigate sound through a series of polar opposites). Flux is a maelstrom of material; flow is the state where comprehension of flux is manageable.

Since 2010, she has worked as a Senior Lecturer at Leeds College of Music, and regularly works with other institutions. Her work for The Hepworth Art Gallery as a freelance creative practitioner furthers her sound arts practice through taught workshops exploring concepts and processes of sculptural form within the rotating exhibitions as related to sound and acoustics, space, and place.

Caterina often works in interdisciplinary fields (she studied electroacoustic music / composition and sound art (1998/99) under the guidance of electroacoustic composer and musicologist Professor Leigh Landy and British artist /sculptor Professor Rob Ward during her Masters Degree at Bretton Hall, University of Leeds).

She has undertaken a number of composer/choreographer residencies (Matteo Fargion / Wendy Houstoun) and developed collaborative work with artists in other disciplines including theatre, dance, poetry, performance and site-specific work. Many of these commissioned projects have received Arts Council funding and have been performed in a number of venues across the UK. Her electroacoustic work He is more Myself Than I was broadcast live on Danish radio station The Lake Radio (May 2016).

Her recent solo exhibitions include Flow, an audio-visual work; this is currently showing in Venice during the period of Venice Carnival as part of THE BODY LANGUAGE – ITSLIQUID International Art Exhibition 2019, at the art gallery THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space from February 21 to March 22, 2019 and at Misericordia Archives from February 22 to March 22, 2019.

As a percussionist she has worked with several bands in the Yorkshire region including Stems, who mix classical and cinematic art rock. Projects with Stems include work with the British Film Institute, and Arts Council England (The Electric Palace, Hastings - Soundtrack to The Stars, 2018). She currently plays drums in Leeds/York based band Void Ship Captains.
