Tonights show we feature an artist spotlight on Tim Olive and his label 845 Audio.

Olive has been releasing music since the early 90’s but around the beginnings of 2000 he began working under his own name.  Working primarily with a single string guitar, pick-ups and analogue electronics Tim Olive has been creating dynamic improvised music.

In 2012 Tim Olive formed 845 Audio which has 4 releases to date, all duo recordings.

Tonight I will be playing track(s) from each of the releases.

The first two tracks I played this evening were off ‘Various Histories’ a duo with Katsura Mouri released in April 2013.

1 – Katsura Mouri & Tim Olive – Untitled Track 4 – Various Histories – Japan, 2013

2 – Katsura Mouri & Tim Olive – Untitled Track 1 – Various Histories – Japan, 2013
