Episode Info:

Gregor Asch is DJ Olive. He’s an electronic and ambient musician, and a visual artist, now living in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada. He helped create a fresh experimental music and art scene in the early nineties in Brooklyn, New York forming an art collective called LaLaLandia and performing in the electronic and dance music scenes. So prior to moving to the small town of Nelson, BC in the late 2000s, his 2018 sound art installation called Listening to Fir at the Touchstones Nelson: Museum of Art & History may have seemed unlikely. But after spending time working on a portable saw mill and constructing with the native woods of his adopted home area, Olive was inspired to consider the life rings of fir trees as wooden records, going so far as playing slices of these trees on old turntables to see what they sounded like. The project evolved into a full sound art installation that would include ambient music from earlier in his career.

The interview with DJ Olive was hosted and recorded by Dave Bellard.
