It’s often hard to describe to people what it is exactly that I do... The complexities of signal chains, pre and post effects, cut-off and resonance, delay time vs feedback, and even just looping in general go over the heads of 70% of the people I try to talk to about it. I actually really appreciate when I come across someone who is into the nerdier side of music and I can discuss these sorts of things in detail. It’s important to me that people understand that the sounds I make on stage are all created on the spot, but I often have trouble communicating that to people without boring them silly with technical jargon...

A multimedia project of massive scope and potential. The idea is to educate and entertain at the same time through the blending of music, lyrics, graphics, video, information resources, concepts and various teaching processes.

The name of the project – How To Beat The Man & Save The World – is multi-faceted. It brings back the 60’s / 70’s persona of ‘The Man’ – A generalised representation of every entity that tries to profit from the troubles and even the very existence of the public. The Man works well because everyone knows what you mean when you say you want to ‘Stick it to The Man’. In the context of the title, The Man can also be seen to be representing the human race – as in we’re killing the planet and we need to save it from ourselves...

Oleh is a musician with a difference. Through the art of looping, he creates something from nothing, taking listeners on a journey through space and time. Influenced by all music and immune to genre, there is a plethora of aural diversity in his tunes. Having acquired the means to make the sounds in his head become the sounds in your head, he is currently writing a full length concept album to be released in early–mid 2012...
