Working with wood and electronics, Owl Project combine traditional techniques and digital technologies to create music-making machines. Drawing on influences such as 1970s synthesiser culture, DIY woodworking and current digital crafts, they produce a distinctive range of musical and sculptural instruments. Their works critique our increasing appetite for new and often disposable technologies.
Owl Project is a collaborative group of artists comprising Simon Blackmore, Antony Hall and Steve Symons. They have performed and exhibited internationally, including performances at Les Urbaines Festival in Lausanne, Switzerland, and the International Symposium on Electronic Art, Belfast, in 2009. Their project ~Flow, developed in collaboration with composer Ed Carter, was selected for the Arts Council's Artists taking the lead project for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.www.owlproject.com
