I Dream of Wires 3: Orphx & Modulars – The Physical Element
Canadian duo Orphx have been releasing electronic music since 1993, and while they were best known in experimental/industrial music circles for many years, today they are regarded as pioneers in the fusion of techno and industrial music. Orphx’s recent output on Sonic Groove has met with critical acclaim from many of techno’s leading DJs. Having performed live with laptops for several years, Orphx’s Christina Sealey made the decision to delve in modular synthesizers, hoping it would bring some spontaneity and excitement to Orphx’s music, both on stage and in the studio.
Orphx’s Christina Sealey will be performing live, as part of Sealey/Greenspan/Lanza, at I Dream Of Wires’ 2012 MUTEK showcase.
