Detroit Techno duo Octave One will be touring ahead of the release of their recent album ‘Love by Machine’.
The tour will encompass versions of the album tracks as well as new unreleased material into the form of ‘Love by Machine’ live.
Lenny said – “We’ve been exploring the theme of connection with this project. How technology gives us the illusion that we are closer to each other more than ever. At some point humanity crossed a line where the devices that we created to bring us together are the same devices that are blocking us from organic experiences. Technology is only a tool, which we also had in mind during the recording process.” Lawrence added – “We decided to go back to how we used to make our records, when we didn’t have so many ‘sophisticated’ audio devices. Back to when we interacted in the studio together as musicians.”
