Anthea Caddy – Cello
Anthea Caddy is a Australian cellist from Melbourne, currently based in Berlin, Germany.
Interested in the relationship between recorded sound, spatialisation and instrumental performance, much of Caddy's work focuses on the incorporation of acoustic, electro-acoustic and recorded space within performance and multi-channel installation.
Caddy works within unusual acoustic environments simultaneously activating the space whilst utilising specific microphone placement to mesh both cello and space into a recorded document. In live solo performance she often uses low lighting or complete darkness in either stereo or multi-channel configurations.
Alongside her solo work Anthea has collaborated and performed with many artists, most notably with Australian sound artist Thembi Soddell (Iland, Cajid Media) and Annette Krebs, Philip Samartzis, Magda Mayas,Tarab (Eamon Sprod), Steve Heather, Anthony Pateras, Eric la Casa, Sean Baxter, Christian Wolff, Tony Conrad, Robin Fox and the list goes on.
She has toured extensively in both Australia, New Zealand, USA and Europe notably at, Bludenzer Tage, Austria, Liquid Architecture National Festival, Australia, Diapason Gallery, New York, Leipzig Museum of Modern Art, Germany, Octubre Centre de Cultura Contemporania, Valencia, Project Space Gallery, Melbourne, Wroclaw Museum of Contemporary Art, Poland and Tesla Centre of Media Arts, Berlin.
She has contributed to numerous works for video installation, dance, live sound design/score for theatre (with Darrin Verhagen and Franc Tetaz), film (Rogue, 2007) and video
