For almost a decade in the 1980s, Richmond, Virginia's Orthotonics constructed and performed a unique catalog of music that could be appreciated for both its inventive complexity and its ability put party people on the dance floor.
Though their catalog is small, the music contained in these recordings displays an impressive conceptual range and virtuosity, while suggesting too, that the band developed a particular method of group composition that was refined through constant "woodshedding" and always included room for spontaneous improvisation.
