Artist Biographies:

"Raised in Toronto and based in Vancouver, Joda Clément has been performing and composing experimental music for over 15 years. His work utilizes analog and acoustic instruments, field recordings and feedback to carefully construct listening environments that transcend a distinction between sound, site, and source.

Joda has performed or exhibited in Canada and abroad, including appearances at The Music Gallery, MOCCA, Issue Project Room (NY), Reheat (Austria), Suoni Per Il Popolo, Extermination Music Night, Life Changing Ministry (CA), Electric Eclectics Festival, VIVO Media Arts Centre, MUTEK, Oboro New Media lab and the West Hollywood Library (CA).

His music has been released internationally on labels such as Alluvial Recordings (US), Glistening Examples (US), Mystery Sea (BE), Unfathomless (BE), caduc (CA) and Notice Recordings (US).

Collaborators past and present include Magali Babin, Michael Northam, Hitoshi Kojo, Olivia Block, Bhob Rainey, Bonnie Jones, Kai Fagaschinski, Chris Cogburn, Tomasz Krakowiak, Mathieu Ruhlmann and Lance Austin Olsen, for example."

"The music of Tim Olive arises from collaboration with fellow musicians/sound artists, collaboration with physical and temporal setting, and collaboration with those involved in the act of listening. Using simple materials (magnetic pickups, steel strings, tuning forks, metal strips, hand-wound motor mechanisms, magnetic tape, dental floss and analog electronics), Olive's work examines presence and the present, the interplay of the human with material/time/space, and the uniqueness, intensity and unrepeatability that lives in each performing and/or recording situation.

He is interested in music as a social activity, as a way of creating community, a way of countering the forces which lead to an increasing atomization of contemporary life; music as a felt experience rather than as a concept or a theory.

A Canadian residing in Kobe, Japan, Olive has released music on Japanese, European and North American labels, with Jeff Allport, Cristian Alvear, Pascal Battus, Alfredo Costa Monteiro, Samuel Dunscombe, Nick Hoffman, Anne-F Jacques, Jin Sangtae, Jason Kahn, Takahiro Kawaguchi, Francisco Meirino, Katsura Mouri, Takuji Naka, Makoto Oshiro and Ben Owen.

Olive has performed/recorded in Asia, Australia, North America and Europe, with the recording collaborators listed above, as well as with Akiyama Tetuzi, Maria Chavez, Che Chen, Kelly Churko, crys cole, Joe Foster, Haco, Hong Chulki, Bonnie Jones, Richard Kamerman, Kostis Kilymis, Siew-Wai Kok, Madoka Kouno, Tomasz Krakowiak, Fangyi Liu, James Rushford, Carl Stone, Fritz Welch, Nate Wooley, Jared Xu and Yan Jun.

In addition to organizing events in Japan, Olive runs the label 845 Audio."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"A three-way collaboration from two different sessions in Vancouver, September 2018 and June 2019, with Joda Clement (Korg MS-20, harmonium, glockenspiel, feedback), Mathieu Ruhlmann (ukelin, cymbal, tapes, objects) and Olive (magnetic pickups, preamplifier, octave generators). While I am not sure if I have heard all the releases by 845 Audio, I would think that by now there is a common thread to be noticed in many of these releases, and that is a carefully constructed approach to the electro-acoustic end of improvisation. Instruments are not easily recognized in these pieces, save for the odd bow upon strings/cymbal/objects in the final piece. But in the opening piece, we hear a mass of dark sounds, and objects being carefully moved around upon an amplified surface, resulting in a similar yet different and mysterious piece of music.This is quite far removed from the traditional world of improvised music, with hardly any 'normal' instruments and some excellent interaction between the three players, each the master of their domain, knowing what they are doing and reacting accordingly. Excellent music!"-Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly
