Always evolving hybrid performance exploring the interplay between analog and digital, audio and video in which fragments of prerecorded material intertwine with live modular improvisation resulting in an immersive synesthetic soundscape of shifting time and space.
Jernej Marušič aka Octex is one of most profiled and internationally established Slovenian electronic artists, operating somewhere in between club and avant-garde, exploring the boundaries of dub aesthetics and sub bass frequencies, placed in variable rhythmical time frames.
His releases have appeared under numerous labels (Mute, EFA, STHLM, Public Records), and his list of remixes includes artists such as Laibach, Marko Furstenberg, Gabriel Le Mar, Ultra Red … Under the new alias Pavemental he recently released the debut Streeteepy, which focuses on his unique take on urban hip hop beats. He is performing his audio-visual live set at festivals and clubs across Europe, such as ARS Electronica (Linz), Club Transmediale (Berlin), ISEA (Helsinki), Dis-patch (Belgrade) Exit (Novi Sad), White Night (Riga), Flussi (Avellino), 7epta/8ogdoa (Chalkidiki) … In recent years, he developed a new interest in improvised music, performing solo impro-sessions centered around a modular synthesizer, or performing with other musicians.
