owm (the smaller), being a subset of Optiphonal Wonder Machine, varies in its form from the latter by a) having two or fewer of three members performing b) the songs, which may or may not follow the laws of the optiphonal wonder machine universes c) performances, which may or may not include live visuals

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Optiphonal Wonder Machine is an audiovisual, synthpop and improvisation band. Drawing inspiration from post-punk, Appalachian folk music, experimental improvisation, mythology, and science fiction; OWM uses live video processing, songs, and improvisation for our performances. Beyond the performance, photography, video, writing, and collaborative storytelling all contribute to the mutable OWM multiverse.
