TIM OLIVE

Chocolate Radio Band (The Golden Sceptre)

(Chocolate Monk - Choc.550) CDR $8.00

Further evidence of Olive’s full skill for mishandling sound. He recorded hours of mono radio signals in a hovel in Kobe, Japan, through a simple chain of EQ, spring reverb, and preamp, which he then chopped, combined, layered, arranged, scrambled, juxtaposed, and quilted to just the right degree for brain tapenade. Warm and cozy!
