about

This collection of live recordings is a deep dive into the nightmarish soundscapes and destroyed rhythms that characterized the early work of the project. Edited into a continuous mix, Primordial State conjures the ritualistic, dreamlike atmosphere of early Orphx performances and shows how studio material was developed and mutated through live improvisation, including the nascent forms of compositions that would later appear on the Fragmentation album (re-released as an expanded box set on Hospital Productions in 2020).
