Tim Olive - radio, magnetic pickups
Summer 2021, Kobe

Mixed by Tim Olive
Mastered by Anne-F Jacques
Layout by Phil Maguire

Originally released on Verz Imprint, February 2022

From Verz:
Japan-based Canadian sound artist Tim Olive debuts on verz with more magnetic pickup mastery. This time incorporating radios, he summons ghosts of tubes and transistors past. Tactile!


released May 6, 2022

Ed Pinsent, The Sound Projector:
Tim Olive applying his disruptive and imaginative skills to radio sets, waving his arms near a hundred transistor sets and making uncanny sound art out of the noise of tuning dials and distorted voices, sounds floating mysteriously in the controlled noise, a form of concrete-noise-poem he’s creating from the airwaves. “He summons ghosts of tubes and transistors past,” states the note on Phil Maguire’s Verz Imprint page, suggesting that Tim isn’t merely manipulating the present, but is somehow reaching back into history and capturing the voices from the air, hopefully rewriting outcomes as he does so. Another essential gem with a great cover and lovely package too.

Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly:
Olive's work has a fine brutality to it. He doesn't go for the cheap effects of plain noise, or too much repetition. There is much variety, and on various occasions, he cuts the sound away and starts something different within the piece. Great tape!
