Bio

Irvic D’Olivier is a sound recorder, director, producer and radio teacher. He lives and works in Brussels.

Over the past 20 years, he has directed/edited/mixed documentaries and creative radio pieces. Alone or collaboratively.
His ears and microphones have wandered through Brussels by night (Chez Martine), deep in the Amazon forest (Takiwasi), to the summit of a volcano (Stromboli), through nature reserves in Costa Rica (Birdless) and elsewhere (Of Birds and Men).

His creative work and documentaries have been broadcast on Radio Panik (BE), le Labo (CH), Kunstradio-Radiokunst (AT), La Première (BE), ArteRadio.com (FR), France Culture (FR), ResonanceFM (UK), Deutschlandradiofunk Kultur (DE) and radia.fm.

Drawn towards the transmission of knowledge, he teaches sound and writing for radio, and has notably led various workshops: introduction to sound recording in radio documentary (ACSR Brussels), writing and storytelling for radio (ESAV Marrackech), the art of mixing (Phonurquia Nova).

He is the founder and artistic coordinator of SilenceRadio.org which was the first platform, from 2005 to 2012, to podcast creative radio works in Belgium, bringing together 124 international artists.

Associate member of the European platform Ars Acustica (EBU) since 2006, he acted as managing director of the ACSR (Atelier de Création Sonore Radiophonique) in Brusssels from 2001 to 2011 and coordinated the radio broadcasts of its festival Radiophonic.org in 2003 and 2007.

He also played the part of a noisebuster in Christophe Deleu and François Teste’s « Débruitage » (« Noisebusting »).

He currently enjoys listening to the world with curiosity and, at times, recording it.
