Bio

Son of two ethnographic filmmakers. Raised in Rhode Island, Nova Scotia, Trinidad, and Australia. Received a BFA from SUNY Purchase in 1987. In 1990, after living in Greece, he moved to Greenpoint, Brooklyn, becoming an active member of the infamous Williamsburg scene, co-founding Lalalandia Entertainment Research Corporation. In 1994, he started up Multipolyomni.com and We™ while producing ambient events throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan. As a joke, he gave birth to the term "illbient" the same year. In 1999, he and Toshio Kajiwara founded Phonomena Audio Arts & Multiples (www.phonomena.com), a weekly event as well as a record label. The weekly event has been happening at SubTonic in the Lower East Side of Manhattan from the beginning, developing from a platform for local DJ's and beatmakers to perform downtempo abstract electronic music to a space for electro acoustic improvisation with many international guests. Also in 1999, he and James Healy started the Agriculture, a record label, releasing a beats in the backyard sunrise kinda vibe. In 2003, after many years of collaborating with many musicians live and on recordings, Olive finally released his debut solo CD, "Bodega". He continues composing in his Brooklyn studio, Skin Tone Riddles when he's not playing at events.
