"Primordial State" is out now on Ekstasis. This is a collection of live recordings from the early days of Orphx, bridging the gap between the free-form noisescapes of our first tapes and the layered rhythmic assault of the Fragmentation album. Sixteen live tracks have been edited into a continuous mix, recreating the ritualistic, dreamlike atmosphere of these early performances. Available digitally and as a limited edition cassette (99 copies) directly from the Orphx Bandcamp page: https://orphx.bandcamp.com/album/primordial-state-live-archive-1994-1995

A few copies of the first Ekstasis release can be found here: https://orphx.bandcamp.com/album/no-contact-live-archive-2011-2019. "No Contact" documents the last nine years of live actions from O/H, the duo of David Foster (Huren, Teste, etc.) and Rich Oddie (Orphx, Eschaton, etc.) with recordings from performances in Japan, Russia, Holland, and Canada. Ekstasis releases are also available from Juno Records (www.juno.co.uk/artists/Ontario+Hospital/) and Triple Vision (www.triplevision.nl/release/ES01/).

Rich recently put together a 90 minute mix for the Sounds From Nowhere podcast : https://soundcloud.com/soundsfromnowhere01/sounds-from-nowhere-podcast-139-orphx

As things slowly start to open up again, we are hopeful that some live performances will be possible in the near future. For all bookings (Orphx, O/H, Eschaton, Orphx + JK Flesh, etc.), contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
