In the field of music or any contemporary cultural terrain, concepts like
development dynamics and progression are used as aesthetic judgement. To any
musician or composer, the idea of musical build up comes with a crisis, any
attempt towards formal pleasure calls for suspicion that this desire is
never one’s own.
In the case of Orchestra of Constant Distress this deadlock manifests itself
in an impulse of refusal directed against any evolution and the result is
the extreme generic and the absolute distress of normative noise and
improvisation. Members with such experiences from The Skull Defekts, Union
Carbide Productions, Brainbombs and No Balls are joined in assemblage of
catatonic sounds, obstinate riffs and rigid rhythms.
