The group has been in residence at the University of Huddersfield and Brunel University in London, holds a quarterly residence at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation and is ensemble in residence of the Architectural Association Interprofessional Studio. This past season (2016) the group was in residence at Harvard University and presented concerts in New York and Chicago.  In Darmstadt 2016 Distractfold performed two programmes of music at the Centralstation and curated a CD featuring remixes and reworking based on the festival's 70-year archives.
