Omar El Sadek as known as Qow is an audiovisual and inter-disciplinary artist specialising in electronic sound production and animated visuals. He’s currently based in Prague, where he studies Fine Arts & Experimental Media. Omar’s work and sound pieces focus mainly on experimenting with the fragile nature of his surroundings including himself. On the visual side, he takes a similar direction investing in the poetic beauty of imperfections, both visually and conceptually. This principle is mostly visible in his works with artists such as ZULI, MSYLMA, Drew McDowall and Know V.A. Visual work has been exhibited at European audiovisual festivals such as Unsound Festival in Krakow, and Lunchmeat Festival in Prague. Other works & commissioned soundtracks were for directors like: Tahoun, Selim, different commercial clients and independent short films like (House Of The Flying Architect), which was awarded the Best Overall Contribution medal at the 2018 London Biennale.

"Sharp edges, clicks and spikes – interdisciplinary artist OMAR EL SADEK aka QOW balances on the cliff between exploration and protection." (PW-Magazine)

"Dawafer is a cohesive album, distinctive for its flowing sounds, shifting dynamics and general immersive mood." (Ma3azef)

“A balance of exploration and protection, Dawafer (Arabic for fingernails) is a personal album that’s as exhausting as any given Wednesday in my Cairo. All tracks on this album were constructed by the constant interruptions of the curious inspective nails, the sharp protective nails, and the stressed out self-bitten nails. The album’s artwork is a self-portrait set in the evening of that same Wednesday.”
Released March 17, 2021
Produced by Omar El Sadek
