The joint project of Etnica/Pleiadians and their fellow Italians Lotus Omega. The first tracks composed were Lunar Civilization and Different Species, made by Filippo, Carlo & Maurizio. The tracks were then sent to Max that at the time was in Bali DJing and needed some new music to play.
All the music they released was composed during the summer of 1996 in the studio they set up in Milano with all the machines from Etnica and Lotus Omega. For Full Mental Jackpot 10 mixes were made in only one stormy afternoon, but only a few made it to the public release. Some of the composed material went lost through the years because of a hard-drive crash and DAT tapes being lost or stolen.
The debut album was finished and was being called Tetrahedron, expected to be released in 1998 on Auracle Recordings. Unfortunately the label went bankrupt before it could be realized. The album was finally released 10 years after in late 2008 on DAT Records.
The name Orpheus comes from the Greek mythology, he was called by Pindar, which was an ancient Greek lyric poet, “the father of songs”. The myth tells us that when Orpheus was playing on his instrument, the trees and the stones were listening, the rivers deviated from their course and the forest animals fell silent.
