OAO was a collaboration between guitarist and live electronic musician Otso Lähdeoja and the plastic arts duo Marswalkers (Alexandre Berthier and Karl-Otto von Oertzen).

OAO first completed a residency at Quebec City’s Œil de Poisson in 2009. At Avatar in 2010, the group worked on the intersections between music, digital arts, and performance to develop a live performance, which was presented at Mois Multi 12.

The Mois Multi is an event produced and organized by the Productions Recto-Verso in February each year. The festival’s program gathers innovative works in the field of multidisciplinary and electronic arts. The Mois Multi is intended as an expression of the conceptual and technological mutations that shake up the unexpected forms and practices of multidisciplinary art. Its uniqueness stems from its interactive shows, installations, immersive environments and works merging artistic languages, materials, techniques, forms and processes of all kinds.
