Episode 09 - Oliver Alex
Oliver Alex is an audiovisual artist from Antwerp. Being passionate about innovation in sound and video, he combines the art of sound design, music production, video art, VJ'ing and DJ'ing. Oliver Alex's sound is characterized by the combination of field recordings with analog synthesis, resulting in either raw techno or ambient electronica.
'Industrial Revolution' is Oliver Alex' live techno show in which he performs live electronic music as well as VJ'ing.
In his live performance, Oliver builds a virtual machine based on proprietary sound and video recordings of machines from the period between 1850 and 1970. By doing this he explores the purest form of techno: machine percussion.
