With the upcoming “Fragmentation” 4 LP set on Hospital Productions, we had the pleasure to chat with Christina Sealey and Rich Oddie of Orphx. We go into their early days of warehouse shows and noise culture. A fascinating look at a pocket of sound experimentation emanating from a small Canadian enclave, Orphx are one of the most unique noise projects of any era.
This week we dive into the world of rhythmic noise with Orphx’s 1996 album “Fragmentation” on Malignant Records. The crew is completely blown away by Christina and Rich’s sound mastery, attention to detail and song title prowess. Dream imagery, cellular consciousness and brain biology are discuss through the lens of this ripper of a CD.
