Orphx brings their signature fusion of hypnotic rhythms and experimental noise to the McMaster LIVELab, an auditorium engineered for acoustic perfection. 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 combine these elements with the aesthetics and themes of early industrial music.

Orphx has gained an international following as one of the pioneering acts within the European ‘rhythmic noise’ scene and more recently came to prominence among techno fans through a series of acclaimed 12″s on Adam X’s Sonic Groove label, along with standout remixes for artists like Oscar Mulero, Perc, and Svreca.

Oddie and Sealey have performed around the world at celebrated venues like Berghain and Tresor, and international festivals such as Atonal, Movement, Mutek, and Unsound. They are renowned for delivering improvised performances that combine software with modular synthesizer and other hardware.
