Welcome friends, would you like join our collective?
Electronic/Prog, dance floor collective, The Octomid combine sparse, acoustic electronic tones and combines them with combative, progressive arrangements to create a sound that is as dynamic as the subjects covered in its content. Alternately subdued, uplifting and yet always emotive. An often times cinematic sound, that combines genres, The Octomid brings together the strengths of both electronic and acoustic music culminating in a rousing and inspiring listening and live experience. The Octomid take influence from unpredictable, fluid and epic arrangements created by Tool and Pink Floyd, while simultaneously displaying sonic textures affiliated with Lamb, Groove Amarda and, at times, the cinematic feel of Massive Attack. Meditative instruments and elements are used, creating distinct ethereal atmospheres, breaking with convention. Undulating deep, dance floor bass sensibility, odd and even drum measures help create a strong but unrestricted foundation from the usual 4/4 grind. With all these elements combined, still at the core of the Octomid, is a dance floor sensibility. It's on the dance floor where the Octomid's sound should be heard. The Octomid was first conceived in Perth, Western Australia on the 26th of August 2008 by producer Glen Dimech. Currently based In Perth (AU) with ties in the London (UK), the collective got its start when Dylan Radclyffe (percussion) and then Mary Bonett (Vocals) replied to adverts looking for talented individuals to recreate Productions for live Performances. Other supporting musicians, Davide Mongirulli (guitar) and Arthur Lewis-Nunes (trumpet) also contributed later to the collective's live shows and recording of music currently on Sound Cloud. The Octomid is currently unsigned. The Octomid's objective is to connect honestly and unrestricted through music and other media. Its important that we share our experiences reciprocally, openly and as comfortable as possible. The Octomid doesn't believe this can be done without removing some of those life time personal filters that keep us from saying and some times thinking what we want. The Octomid is proactively trying to create this environment with it's music and within the collective. Socially aware, The Octomid hopes to be an beacon of awareness and respect. The Octomid will not tolerate inequality of any kind and will convey any information when ever possible to bring us all to the same place, together as friends of the planet and each other. If you share these values would you please join us on our journey and make contact. And so it begins.
