From Machine For Making Sense's official website

"As a sound-artist and performer Stevie Wishart has focused her performance and research with the Australian sound/text group Machine for Making Sense, and with her group Sinfonye which specialises in repertories from c1000 to 1400 and has led to a discovery of female poet-composers-artists. Both groups have informed her work in solo performance.

Using digital technologies for creating, processing and visualising sound in space, she also references medieval technology, iconography and sound, as embodied in the hurdygurdy. The rub of visual and sound technologies from the medieval, the contemporary, and the virtual, have a sensuality all their own. Current projects include the sound installation and performance Ut v.2 with the artist Joan Grounds which was hosted at the Contemporary Atrts Centre of South Australia in partnership with a residency at the School of Architecture & Design and School of Art at the University of S.A. She is currently working on the sound for the short film " " by Margie Medlin for Federation Square and the Evolution of Cinema exhibtion at Z.K.M, Germany".
