The near-decade since the Octopus Project's debut, Identification Parade, has seen the Austin quartet refine and expand its sound — a kind of musical rapture the members like to refer to as "ambidextrous equipment failure junktronica" — from electronic micro-wankery to symphonic majesty by way of triumphal rock jams in unusual time signatures. (Along the way, the members have won at least one "best miscellaneous instrument" award for Yvonne Lambert's virtuosic theremin playing.) The Project's fourth album, Hexadecagon, out next week on Peek-a-Boo records, is a calmer and more atmospheric homage to minimalist pioneers like Steve Reich and Terry Riley, but it doesn't sacrifice the giddy, geeky euphoria of its earlier work; the album itself was conceived live, with the band at the center of the room surrounded by the audience and a ring of speakers.
