Snawklor is a collaboration between Melbourne, Australia based visual artists Nathan Gray and Dylan Martorell.

Snawklor as a duo make improvised electro acoustic music and sound installation with whatever is at hand exotic instruments, feild recordings, toys and electronics. As a trio with Duncan Blachford on drums they explore the possibilities available only in louder volumes.

Originally started as a curatorial project which put out limited edition 7 inch lathe cut records pressed by New Zealand's Peter King and exhibited them in 2 exhibitions one in 1996 and one in 1998. "The 50 Record Players Exhibition" was also toured to Brisbane for the 1998 version.

There are roughly 80 7 inch singles on the Snawklor (record label) as well as one 12inch compilation.

At the concerts accompanying these exhibitions the duo began to perform using mainly djing and sound sculpture and this developed into Snawklor the musical duo. This moved into digitally manipulated sound and electro-acoustic improvisation.

From around 2004 the duo began to incorporate live processed acoustic instruments this period had an extremely quiet and delicate sound.The duo played rarely during this period and then only in quieter gallery spaces.

In 2009 the duo incorporated drummer Duncan Blachford and currently perform with guitar and synthesizers, in band orientated spaces, exploring the possibilities of greater volume. The 2 original members still perform as Snawklor Duo, showing the more delicate sound of the band.
