Orchestra - Jaromirs Flat I & II
Opening Performance Orchestra - Fraction Music III
Performance Orchestra is a Prague based project, playing mathematical
noise for a long time. Have seen the trio several times at the Prague
Industrial Festival, once they played live at club|debil.
The two albums (one double, one a single one) are nearly the same. Each
CD contains a 60 minutes one piece track of pure white noise close to
0dB all the time. To see the changes, I have loaded one of the tracks
into a sound manipulation program (Magix)
and all you can see is a constant bar. Listening to OPO is like being
inside a sandstorm. If you listen deeply or wear headphones you always
realise some clear background sounds from a living room or natural environement.
This all reminds me to Boyd
Rice's "Ragnarok Rune"- if you listen trough, you hear a more
or less constand noise, but if you skip, you easily hear, that the sound
changes all the time. So maybe it's fine for a noisy meditation, but all
together it's not really interesting, because of it's lack of dynamics.
I barey can imagine a person,
that listens trough all the three CDs in a line...
