A group of underwater aliens, abreast at a bar on the bottom of the sea, drinking fresh ink and singing! Realizing a situation like this is exactly what Roberto Domenicioni, Thomas Tavano, Christof Zurbuchen, Felix Perret and Niki Neecke are doing in a musical way: freely improvised music in different states of fluidity. uniting the members individual ideas and experiences in a free music, rising up from the ocean’s abysses - Octopus’ call!
The band was formed in autumn 2001. The freedom and fun they enjoy while playing together in such a project ensures that the band’s music is constantly evolving. Octopus uses freely improvised themes, parts and moods together with today’s electronic possibilities.
This results in a music that just like nature invents itself over and over again.
