Octavius is the highly acclaimed hip-hop/electronic project masterminded by vocalist/programmer William Marshall. Working under various incarnations, Octavius has released two EPs and a single leading to his Mush debut, Audio Noir. His approach to developing sound employs augmented samples, live instruments, and software-based editing techniques allowing the creation of music limited only by his imagination. An accomplished live performer, Octavius adds live keyboards, guitars, and drums as needed to elevate his sound. His music ranges from subtle ambience to explosive rage; decidedly far-reaching and brimming with tension, it is impossible to ignore its sense of urgency.
