The Orb will be coming to Japan to perform their latest and greatest live set at VENT OmotesandoMusic
In the ever-changing electronic music scene, The Orb has always been at the forefront, producing some of the most innovative works of era of at the time. We are very proud to announce that The Orb will be making their first appearance at VENT, on August 23rd, to perform an all-new, live set!
The Orb was founded by Alex Paterson and The KLF member Jimmy Cauty. After Jimmy's departure, many artists joined forces to produce an album with The Orb. Some of those artists include, Kris Thrash Weston, Youth of Killing Joke, Steve Hillage of System 7, to name a few. The Orb's most notable albums are “The Orb's Adventures beyond the Ultraworld”, “U.F.Orb”, and “Orbus Terrarum”.
The Orb is practically the embodiment of the ambient house music genre, and they have massively influenced the whole chill out/ambient music scene that came after it. For many years, The Orb's Alex Paterson has been working with Swiss/German electronic music heavyweight, as a two-man team. Their more recent works have seen them collaborate with reggae/dub legend, Lee Scratch Perry, releasing two albums. Last year, they released a new album on the long-established label, Cooking Vinyl, and even their old friend Youth helped out on the production effort. Said album, “No sounds are out of Bounds”, featured an exciting rage of legendary guests, including, Roger Eno, Guy Pratt of Pink Floyd, and Jah Wobble of PiL.
Their insatiable appetite to producer will not go away! The Orb continues to renew themselves and show that they are still on the cutting-edge of creativity by producing masterpiece after masterpiece, showing that are still at the top of their game. We would like to extend a warm invitation to join us for what will surely be an unforgettable night with The Orb at the helm, playing a completely new live set, only at VENT!
