Octant is a synth-pop project comprised entirely of mastermind Matthew Steinke and a merry band of robotically-played instruments. The homemade blip-bleeping creations are genius and a sight to see, especially in a place like Sycamore -- a Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, bar that also happens to double as a flowershop -- where the rustic atmosphere brings out the surprising warmth of the robotics.
The bots' whimsical tunes combined with Steinke's singer-songwriter tone give Octant a refreshingly futuristic sound -- one that, despite all the metal and machines, feels warm and charming.
