Educated at the University of Art London, Oddscene specialise in producing a collage of imagery inspired by science, horror, technology, natural history, sci-fi and puppets.

In 2008, Oddscene became artist-in-residence for the Cybersonica AV LAB 08 in Brighton, preparing and showcasing a collaborative audio-visual live performance with Voice Controller
Kristi. From there, emerged a collective of artists who actively connect and engage with visuals;
VJs collectives and art and technology showcases. Some as Musion, Flux, Veejey London, Crux
and Kinetica Artfair.

The nexus of art and technology has always been a focus of Oddscene’s work, resulting in joining various showcases, with nomination for the Randstand VJ Gold Award 2010
and Yota Space Festival in the Red Square, Moscow. From 2009 to 2013, Oddscene’s short stopmotion histories were showcased at Kinetica Artfair, via the Musion Eyeline Hologram stage – when art mixes with technology, the result is science fiction! Showcased artwork included ‘Jungledelia’ (2012), ‘Seaweird’ (2013) and ‘Galaktica Battlesounds’ (2014).

Oddscene experienced the ‘Berliner’ art scene, touring Germany and Poland with a live
collaborative AV project; Bitches on Bikes. Highlights were performances at Barcelona’s Gay Pride Parade in 2013, Teatr W Oknie Two Windows Theatre’s experimental sessions in Gdansk in 2013 and at City University London’s ‘Tek Art My Junk’event at the Roundhouse Theatre, in 2011.
Other multi- and mixed-media collaborations include ‘Tales from the Tunnel’ – an audio-visual
installation mapping the Islington Tunnel from a moving boat, alongside a specially commissioned soundtrack by Phuq (founder of the Bad Sekta record label) – for Regent’s Canal Art Festival in 2012.

Oddscene has also regularly collaborated with the Bluemission lighting company, on
installations combining video, sculpture and performance, often for the Random Artist and TAA
events in London. Oddscene entered the world of independent science fiction and horror in 2014 with Inferno Mortal films resulting in two short productions, ‘Have a good Trip’ and ‘Locale’. It is also proud to have provided the title sequences for cult Spanish film, ‘Antonio Cumple 50’ (Mira Films, 2015) – premiered in Barcelona’s famous Verdi Cinema.
