Tim Olive uses consumer detritus (springs, styrofoam, metal sheets, hand-wound motors, magnetic tape, toys, wood, dental floss), modified magnetic pickups, and analog electronics to generate sound-textures and scraps of pitched material evolving, shifting and mutating in real time, resulting in a music which is uncanny, uneasy, and yet somehow beautiful, with a focus on collaboration, predicated on the uniqueness, intensity and unrepeatability in every musical situation.
He is interested in music as a social activity, as a way of creating community, a way of countering the 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, Cristián Alvear, Pascal Battus, Alfredo Costa Monteiro, Samuel Dunscombe, Doreen Girard, Nick Hoffman, Anne-F Jacques, Jin Sangtae, Jason Kahn, Takahiro Kawaguchi, Madoka Kouno, Yukinori Kikuchi, Cal Lyall, Francisco Meirino, Elizabeth Millar, Katsura Mouri, Takuji Naka, Bunsho Nishikawa, Makoto Oshiro, Ben Owen, Craig Pedersen, Horacio Pollard, Martin Tétreault, Fritz Welch, and Yan Jun.
Olive has performed/recorded in Asia, Australia, Europe and North America, with the recording collaborators listed above, as well as with Akiyama Tetuzi, Sean Baxter, Dave Brown, Allison Cameron, Maria Chavez, Che Chen, Kelly Churko, Joda Clement, Crys Cole, Chris Dadge, William Davison, Masafumi Ezaki, Joe Foster, Anthony Guerra, Haco, Ishigami Kazuya, Bonnie Jones, Nicola Hein, Richard Kamerman, Kostis Kilymis, Siew-Wai Kok, Tomasz Krakowiak, Fangyi Liu, Elizabeth Millar, Chie Mukai, Toshimaru Nakamura, Craig Pedersen, Mathieu Ruhlmann, James Rushford, Joel Stern, Carl Stone, Nate Wooley, and Jared Xu.

In addition to organizing events in Japan, Olive runs the label 845 Audio.
