The original cast recording of Dave Malloy's acclaimed a cappella chamber choir musical, Octet, is now available digitally. The album, released by Nonesuch Records, may be purchased digitally via iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, and the Nonesuch Store, where CDs also may be pre-ordered.
The world premiere of Octet, directed by Annie Tippe, played an extended run at Off-Broadway's Signature Theatre April through June. The musical features a score for an a cappella chamber choir and a libretto inspired by Internet comment boards, scientific debates, religious texts, and Sufi poetry to explore addiction and nihilism within the messy context of 21st century technology.
