olafOlaf Krautwurst

Olaf started making computer music in 1992 as Ultrasonic. In 1994 he changed the name to Inside Agitator, which was active until 2012. He also started some other projects like Abnormal Dysfunction, Dark Ghost Dream and The Ghost Killer. Between 1992 and 2012 he released more than 20 albums and singles and played more than 10 live gigs together with artists like Psyche, Synergy, Proceed and Mystery of Dawn.

In 2012 he started Blinky Blinky Computerband as a successor of Inside Agitator, to create “something new”! Olaf is responsible for the complete creative process. He writes the music and the lyrics, he does the recording, mixing and mastering, he sings and sometimes he tries to play guitar. He is also responsible for all artwork, pictures and video clips. He also produces remixes and in irregular intervals his oldschool dj-mix series „Blinky Blinky In The Mix“.

In 2017 he started two new projects, Calling the Ghosts (electro, dance, techno) and Visible Silence (ambient, experimental), and a new label called Calling the Ghosts Music.
