Currently, as co-founder of the Beta Collide New Music Project, Barth collaborates with individuals from a broad spectrum of disciplines such as music, art, dance, sound sculpture and theoretical physics. In addition to her work with Eighth Blackbird and Beta Collide, she has performed chamber music with Fear No Music, Third Angle New Music Ensemble, MusicNow, the Fulcrum Point New Music Project  and Contempo Performances.
