Olive / Tétreault Duo
Tim Olive – magnetic pickups
Martin Tétreault – turntables, objets
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 (including magnetic pickups, steel strings, tuning forks, metal strips, hand-wound motor mechanisms, magnetic tape, dental floss and analog electronics), Olive’s work is predicated on 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, Yukinori Kikuchi, Cal Lyall, Francisco Meirino, Katsura Mouri, Takuji Naka, Bunsho Nishikawa, Makoto Oshiro, Ben Owen, Horacio Pollard, Fritz Welch, and Yan Jun.
Initié à la musique improvisée par Michel F Côté, René Lussier, Diane Labrosse, Jean Derome, Martin Tétreault est platiniste, improvisateur, concepteur sonore et artiste visuel. Il est reconnu ici et à l’étranger pour son travail de recherche et d’improvisation avec des tourne-disques de tout genre ou de sa fabrication. Il réalise avec cet attirail hétéroclite des performances sonores, seul ou en collaboration avec d’autres artistes de la musique, la danse, la poésie ou l’installation.
Durant la décennie 1994-2004, il participe à de nombreux festivals internationaux et y rencontre Otomo Yoshihide, Xavier Charles ainsi que de nombreux musiciens avec lesquels il endisque volumineusement. En 2004, la chorégraphe Lynda Gaudreau lui commande une œuvre pour quatuor de tourne-disques. Il collabore régulièrement avec Cas Public et Sylvain Émard Danse, et a monté trois expositions: R_ _GO, Prises de son: couleurs et animées et Phonographes vinylisés. En 2015, Nicole Gingras publie Des disques et un couteau, une monographie consacrée à l’artiste.

Un inventaire d’objets et de matières avec lesquels l’auteure, l’artiste sonore Anne-F Jacques, fabrique des assemblages sonores et cinétiques. À travers leur poids, leur texture et l’histoire particulière de leur rencontre, elle retrace une petite partie de leur biographie et plonge le lecteur dans un microcosme d’objets têtus. Elle s’intéresse aux choses qui tournent, aux sonorités rugueuses, aux mouvements erratiques, à la construction d’assemblages précaires et idiosyncratiques. Sons et autres trouvailles. Elle vit et travaille à Montréal.
