Oliver Alex is a Belgian DJ & producer driven by machines. He tells stories through sound design, video art and live shows. OA's sound is characterized by the combination of field recordings with analog synthesis, resulting in either raw techno or ambient electronica.
Oliver Alex is resident at Kompass Klub Gent and has an live audiovisual techno show, called 'Industrial Revolution'
In his live performance, Oliver builds a virtual machine based on proprietary sound and video recordings of machines from the period between 1850 and 1970. By doing this he explores the purest form of techno: machine percussion. Jean Tinguely is one of his sources of inspiration.
