Bitone collective is a mixed-media collective of artists, designers and technicians working at the intersection of technology and contemporary arts practice. Based in Dublin, Bitone draws on the varying backgrounds of its members in installation art, lighting, sound art, video art and interaction design to create pieces that exist at the nexus of audio visual and physical interaction. The current collective is formed from Raoul Simpson, Chris Le Dantec, Brian Kenny and Tom O'Dea. Previous projects from the members include Canary Wharf Winter Lights Festival, Drop Everything, Offset, Illuminating York, Galway Arts Festival and Nord Art amongst many more. The Bitone members' backgrounds not only as artists, but also as technicians has seen the members engage in large scale commercial projects from music festivals to commissions for global brands and gives the group a broad experience in project delivery and planning.
