Steve Barry (2012)

Orbiturtle is a not-for-profit arts organisation that aims to foster a growing global community of musicians and artists by offering a platform for the sharing of ideas and arts practices. Australian saxophonist Dave Jackson, Japanese drummer and tabla player Ko Omura and I founded Orbiturtle in 2014 with a mission to curate new collaborations between artists from across the Asia-Pacific region and establish a medium for the intersection of eastern and western art and philosophy.
