Olaf Rupp was born in 1963. He found his first guitar in 1975 and played free music on it because this is the most natural thing to do. He was his own teacher and until 1988 he played Rockmusic and Classical Music in public and did the free Music only at home. Then he met other improvisers who introduced him to the tradition of FreeJazz and Improvised Musix. He played with Paul Lovens, Wolfgang Fuchs, Butch Morris, Sainkho Namtchylak, Hannes Bauer, Jean Marc Montera and many others.
At the same time Olaf Rupp still kept up the way of improvised Popmusic in Duos with drummer Hanno Leichtman (EMAK BAKIA) and later Stephan Mathieu (STOL). Stol had an EP out on Berlin Pop Label Kitty-Yo. After that he focused on acoustic and electric guitar improvisations.
 
Guitar player Olaf Rupp has until now published very divers works - the range varies from electronic
music (MAI at a-Musik or BEASTIESHOPBEACH at Grob) and improvised Clubmusic (STOL at Kitty-Yo) up to
acoustic guitar or Stratocaster-cable-tubeamp improvised music (LIFE SCIENCE at FMP).
