One of the most highly respected acts in both techno and industrial circles, Orphx have been developing their signature fusion of hypnotic rhythms and experimental noise for over twenty five years. Using modular and analog synthesizers, software, location recordings and feedback circuits, Rich Oddie and Christina Sealey draw upon the darker, psychedelic fringes of techno and the experimental aesthetics and themes of early industrial music. Orphx gained an international following as one of the pioneering acts within the European ‘rhythmic noise’ scene during the 1990s and more recently attracted the attention of techno fans through a series of acclaimed releases on Khemia and Sonic Groove, collaborative work with the likes of Ancient Methods and JK Flesh, and remixes for many artists including Oscar Mulero, Perc, and Front Line Assembly.
Oddie and Sealey have performed around the world at celebrated venues like Berghain and Tresor, and international electronic music festivals such as Berlin Atonal, Movement, Mutek, and Unsound. Their live performances are renowned for delivering improvised sets that combine software with modular synthesizer and other hardware. Building on a sprawling back catalogue that stretches across industrial, ambient, and techno, their recent output has demonstrated that Orphx are both pioneers and innovators in the fusion of rhythm and noise.
