    On the world scene, Edward Cowie is one of the most remarkable of men- a person who sees no boundaries between art and science and who communicates the infinite connectivity of forms, patterns, natural things and energies with a dynamism that is nothing less than astounding and mind-opening.

    He is much sought-after as a public speaker and entertainer, taking us into new regions of thought and action and involving especially the combination of sight and hearing in a ceaseless exploration of invention and creation. He is in fact, the perfect exemplar of scientist/artist to sage!

    ReviewsAn hour spent under Cowies spell is a life-

    changing experience. He is a superb public

    speaker with a very special gift for making

    complicated and wonderful things simple.

    The Melbourne Age

    Edward Cowie is a magician who conjures with

    ideas about art and science in an entirely new

    way. Like the rest of the audience, I came away

    spell-bound and transformed!

    The Sydney Morning Herald

    I doubt if there is anyone more suited and

    qualified to unzip the workings of the cosmos and

    human mind. Here is a true renaissance man

    with a gift for innovation and insight into the

    nature of the creative process and the creative

    forces of nature second to none

    enthrals

  • We booked Edward Cowie as the keynote speaker for our international conference in New Zealand. His reputation had gone before him but nothing could have prepared us for the amazing things he shared with us. Imagine 1500 people in the insurance business listening to a whole new world of ideas about sound and the human mind! He was scheduled to talk and play for an hour yet the spellbound audience was still baying for more after 3 hours!!

    ARE BIRDS COMPOSERS?Almost every place on earth is home to singing birds. Poets, painters, film-makers, musicians and even dancers have responded in one way or another to the life and habits of birds. But considering how noisy they are and the fantastic range of kinds of sounds they make from the ravishing tones of great songsters like mockingbirds and nightingales to the raucous rattle of cormorants and crows, is what they are doing musical?

    Renowned composer, visual artist and natural scientist, Edward Cowie thinks he knows the answer to this question and in a presentation lasting around 90 minutes, hell take you on a sound-adventure of a lifetime! Once you have heard and seen what he has to say (and play), youll never think of birds in quite the same way again.

    Nobody knows more about how and why birds sing than he does, and he has the added benefits of being able to put his unique messages across in a way that captivates and enthrals.

  • THE SCIENCE OF ART & THE ART OF SCIENCE

    Internationally famous composer, painter and scientist, Edward Cowie is absolutely

    unique in the world of ideas and creative action in our time. Trained as both physicist

    and creative artist, Cowie has continued to expand his highly-charged ideas about the

    way all things connect in the Universe. He believes, in fact, that the specialised way

    we look at the arts and sciences is leading us further and further away from the truth

    about creation and the way the universe works as an inventor and experimenter of

    unlimited connectivity. He takes us deep into the mind of a fusion thinker, showing

    us in sound, image and speech just how magnificent the shape and action of the

    cosmos is and how ideas about forms, patterns, numbers, matter, time, colour, sound-

    the macro and the micro of the cosmos are manifestations of one and the same thing.

    And he should know, his music has been commissioned by august bodies such as The

    Royal Society in London, The Institute of Physics, The Humboldt Foundation in

    Germany and the department of physics at Oxford University. He has worked closely in

    collaborative partnerships with leading physicists in the world including Sir Michael

    Berry FRS and Professor Brian Foster FRS OBE.

    As if these arent credentials enough, he has also made an award-winning film for

    television on Leonardo da Vinci and written and presented major series of radio

    programmes on the art of science and the science of art as well as continuing to

    lecture; give recitals; and exhibit drawings and paintings that help to bring to us how

    vividly these tremendous connections really are.

    The last time I saw and heard

    someone as brilliant as this at

    unzipping the world or arts and

    sciences was Jacob Bronowski!

    Simply stunning!

  • THE VOICES OF GAIAA NATURAL HISTORY OF SOUND

    Here is a chance to see and hear a composer/visual artist/natural scientist,

    with a world reputation, take us on a journey from the birth of a sounding earth through to today! From the first formation of an atmosphere on this

    planet, a time when it became noisy for the first time, Cowie takes us on a vision-and-sound adventure through the orchestras of the earth:

    The sounds of the elements Voices in the oceans The first reptile singers Insect songs Birds as soloists and choirs Mammalian voice The human voice

    This amazing story is told with the aid of images and sound and will utterly

    transform your feelings about how and why our world is so full of noise and also why and how we respond to it in the way we do.
