Artist Biographies:

"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."

"Recorded in Kobe in the winter of 2020, this is the second-ever solo release from Tim Olive, his first since 2008. Olive's work is based on direct, real-time collaboration, generally using relatively minimal editing and mixing, but circumstances encouraged a different approach; this release features somewhat more elaborate editing and mixing techniques, mainly the multiple layering of varyingly similar and dissimilar solo tracks, in a manner akin to the superimposition of multiple photo s

"In the five pieces here, Olive shows that he's quite good at using the most abstract sounds, scratching real surfaces as it were, and finding a dialogue, abstract as it may is, between these sounds. Although much of his work deals with improvised music, I would think that this more in the world of electro-acoustic music or musique concrète, but from a slightly more noisy perspective, which, for instance, in the second track leads to some powerful drone music, but just as well to concentrated scraping of surfaces and more mellow drones. A touch of industrial music, one could say, is also never far away for Olive. In these pieces, Olive has some excellent variation on his music, the whole dynamic of loud versus quiet, dense versus sparse and acoustic versus electric. Listening to this, I have no idea why Olive doesn't do more of this solo work. Unless, of course, he finds a different dialogue, one between musicians, of more interest and this is rather his forced work due to circumstances beyond his control. Whatever the case, this is a great job."-Vital Weekly
