Orp is an ambient chamber jazz ensemble featuring Mig O'Rourke (electric cello, electric guitar, muurni khuur, theremin) and Horst Prillinger (electric guitar, electric piano, electric sitar, bass guitar). The band plays in a distinct style located between minimal music, drone, and ambient music, making extensive use of improvisation.

In My Dream, I'm Dancing to a Slow Tune

This fall has been very productive, so we have yet another new video for you: "In My Dream, I'm Dancing to a Slow Tune". It's, as you may have guessed, a slow tune.

This one started with a reverse loop which I made more or less by accident and which I felt suggested a dance move. It seemed logical to use it for a video, so I searched the Prelinger Archive for videos on dancing, found something, modified it, and then went back to the studio, took our track "Slow Industrial Tune", which we had recorded on October 15th, added the loop, recorded two additional new guitar tracks, and voilà. Enjoy, and dance.

Currents

In our quest to provide interesting video content, we have combined our track "Currents", recorded in July, with footage from a 1945 educational film on the principles of electricity. So listen and learn. Or be confused.

Orp Provide Soundtrack for Czech Theater Promo Clip

Orp have been commissioned to create the soundtrack for a promotional video clip of the Czech Theater's stage production of Karel Čapek's Rossum's Universal Robots. Performances will be on November 3, 4 and 11 at the Music Lab in Brno.

The track was specifically created for this video and is called "Robot Two (Soundtrack Version)".

New stereo version of "Akbé" on Soundcloud

In one of our recent recording sessions, we returned to one of our favourite tracks. You may know the early demo version of "Akbé" we included on "Akbé/Animé", but this is an entirely different beast. Not only is it longer and richer in sound, it is also in stereo. Enjoy!

New Track "Collateral" on Soundcloud

While we're getting "Akbé/Animé" ready for release, here is already a peek into the future: "Collateral" is an entirely new track from the sessions for our next album project. Listeners have called it "electric", and we'd like to concur. There is a unique energy in Mig's cello bow on this one. Enjoy.
