The Octopus Project
The Octopus Project (Austin, USA) is Toto Miranda, Yvonne Lambert, Josh Lambert and Lauren Gurgiolo. Based in Austin, TX, the group of multi-instrumentalists has released six albums, starting with 2002’s Identification Parade. Touring clubs and festivals (Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits) worldwide both on their own and as handpicked support for artists as diverse as DEVO and Aesop Rock, they’ve earned a reputation for explosive live shows and immersive audio-visual experiments. Also active as composers for video games and film, they were awarded the Special Jury Award for Musical Score at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival for their work on the film Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter. The band just finished a score for the film, Damsel, directed by the Zellner Bros. and starring Robert Pattinson & Mia Wasikowska, which will premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
