OSKAR may refer to: A) A Russian Pop Star B) OSKAR is an incongruous collaboration between former Collapsed Lung bassist and fine artist Jonny Dawe and former Strangelove keyboard player and soundtrack composer Nick Powell, that feels comfortable calling itself art rock, and drawing on sources such as Krautrock, systems composers Michael Nyman and Steve Reich, Sonic Youth, folk-psych and ambient musics. OSKAR was originally formed not to rock the world in a dazed'n'confused manner, but in order to create an original soundtrack for performance art group The Max Factory, which was performed throughout Europe. Other OSKAR projects include the composition and live performance of soundtracks for Suspect Culture's experimental theatre piece 'ONE TWO' and three Miu Miu catwalk shows in Milan, one of which, 'Air Conditioning', was subsequently released on Leaf Records' Invisible Soundtracks compilation. It was also the title track of last year's critically acclaimed debut mini-album.

OSKAR album collaborators include string players Sarah Willson (Belle and Sebastian) and Lucy Wilkins (Massive Attack),whilst OSKAR's live persona has featured Ruth Gottlieb (Calexico,Sparklehorse) and Alex Lee (Suede, Placebo). Last year, OSKAR provided an introductory sound installation for the V&A's sonic exhibition 'Shhh...'(alongside the likes of David Byrne and Cornelius), of which Jonny was co-curator. 2006 sees OSKAR embracing the digital age with a new 4 track EP, 'rerun', released through Universal Digital and available for download only. Beyond the Net, expect to see OSKAR live soon, actual size and in real time.
