Biography

Olaf Rupp, born 1963 in Saarlouis. As an autodidact at the age of twelve he started to play what we might call today Improvised Music or Instant Music and he always returned here after several excursions into other fields. In the nineties he mainly played electric guitar and his own setup of electronics. (EMAK BAKIA, STOL, BEASTIESHOPBEACH and sound installations) By now he came back to the acoustic guitar, developping some playing techniques (Chinese Pipa music, rasgueados, arpeggios and tremoloes) in such a way that they can be used for new cluster effects to create density. His use of these soundmaterials is still influenced by his experience in electronics. He has played among others with Lol Coxhill, Tony Buck, John Zorn, Joe Williamson, Sainkho Namtchylak, Paul Lovens, Butch Morris and Michael Wertmüller. He is a member of the free noise band Koro. Three solo albums are published on FMP and on GROB.
