Jernej Marusic aka Octex is one of most profiled and internationally established Slovenian electronic artists. His sound is placed somewhere in between club and avant-garde.
His debute album Idei Lahesna (Tehnka, 2002) is regarded by many as one of the best dub-techno albums, while his second one Variations (rx-tx, 2005) showed his desire to push the sound further, deeper and more experimental. He continues in that direction on his latest album Every Sound Tells a Story (rx-tx, 2009).
After couple of years of only working on sporadic tracks and remixes for artists such as Marko Furstenberg, Gabriel Le Mar, Ultra-Red, Laibach... he is now locked in his new studio working on a lot of music, and recently he has released a new album Every Sound Tells a Story on rx-tx.
In the meantime he is busy performing his audio/visual live set at festivals and clubs all around Europe, such as ARS Electronica (Linz), Club Transmediale (Berlin), ISEA (Helsinki), Dis-patch (Belgrade) Exit (Novi Sad) White Night (Riga), Flussi (Avellino)...
Lately he also became interested in improvised music, either doing his solo improv sessions, or as part of a trio Ago Tela, which he formed in 2009 with like minded musicians Marjan Crnkovic (Dojaja) and Mario Marolt (Electrosaurus), and has been focusing on it a lot lately.
