BOO 1220 CD

The Octopus Project's fourth album began as an experimental performance piece written for a custom eight-channel audio, eight-screen video integrated surround system. The band then spent months recording and re-arranging the piece to create an ear-dazzling experience for anyone with a pair of speakers or headphones. The result is not so much eight distinct songs as one epic suite with mood swings. This, more than any previous release by The Octopus Project, is an album in the truest sense.

The first syncopated piano riff of “Fuguefat” only hints at the intense, vacillating montage of over 40 interwoven piano tracks which later appear in “Circling.” This fervor gradually subsides into a vast sonic landscape where massive subterranean tones call and respond, and a lone, mournful Theremin wanders the domain in “Toneloop.” That Theremin eventually finds companions among the colossal, soothing pulses of “Hallucinists,” and album closer “Catalog” just might be a millennia-old transmission from a distant intelligent life form.

The CD is packaged in a deluxe gatefold digipak and includes a booklet filled with artwork and imagery from the Hexadecagon performance.
