Chilean instrumental act Octopus got started in the year 2001, formed by drummer Cristóbal Orozco and bassist Braulio Aspé. Guitarists Sebastián Lavín and Fernando Daza joined in, and then the foursome was ready to fulfill their broadening vision of rock. All four musicians had academic training at the Projazz School of Music. A CD demo comprising 4 tracks was released in the following year: it was recorded in one day on a stage environment (without an audience). After Lavín left, he was replaced by Jorge Benavides. At the time, the band’s repertoire had been augmented, and with the new ideas brought in by the new guitarist, the band eventually went to the studio to record their official debut CD, titled after the band itself - it was 2004.
