Oliver Alex is a Belgian DJ & producer driven by machines. He tells stories through sound design, video art and live shows. He is resident at Kompass Klub Gent.
'Industrial Revolution' is Oliver Alex' live techno show in which he performs live electronic music as well as VJ'ing. 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.
