OPENING PERFORMANCE ORCHESTRA is a seven-member ensemble with a twenty-year history of initially non-public activities, both musical and extramusical; they have been producing original music since 2006. The ensemble’s noisy, conceptual approach is rooted in the twentieth-century avant-garde and in Japanese noise music, revolving around the idea of so-called fraction musicand slogan “no melody – no rhythm – no harmony”. The results are original compositions (such as Fraction Music) as well as reinterpretations of other composers’ compositions that the ensemble feels to be in the same vein – like Inspirium Primum referring to the material by Hiroshi Hasegawa, a Japanese noise music representative, Re:Broken Music based on destroyed music of a Czech Fluxus artist Milan Knížák, The Noise of Art and The Futuristic Soirée, originating from ideas of Italian futurists and using intonarumori, or Chess Show as a distinctive John Cage reminiscence.

Four Walls Full of Sound represents an electronic mix of compositions by Phill Niblock, performed by Opening Performance Orchestra.
