Damsel – a western starring Robert Pattinson – premiering in 2018

I guess the possibility of Sundance is a reality.  The Playground UK recently spoke with Josh Lambert from The Octopus Project who shared where Damsel is at:

What does the future hold for The Octopus Project?

We’re super excited about the future!  We’re just now finishing up the score to the next Zellner Bros. film – Damsel (a western starring Robert Pattinson!) – which premieres next year, this last weekend, we played an ambient, improvised, quadrophonic live A/V show, which we’re hoping to continue tinkering with for future endeavors, we have a special release/tour happening early in 2018 & we’re working on European dates for next year.  Non-stop! [My emphasis]

Josh also gave a glimpse of how they work with the Zellner Bros:

The Octopus Project supplied the score to the 2014 film Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, directed by David Zellner. Could you tell us how this came about, and what it may have taught you as a band?

We’ve been buddies with David and Nathan Zellner for a long time.  They’ve made music videos for us & we’ve supplied music for some of their short films & features.  We had been talking with them for a few years about scoring what became Kumiko – passing musical references back and forth/talking about the script/etc.  So, when it came time to make the film, we were all on the same page.

We learned a lot on that film in the sense that a little goes a long way.  As a rock band, we generally throw everything into our songs, which makes things super dense.  I love that approach, but for a film like Kumiko, you have to head in the opposite direction.  The whole film is from the perspective of Kumiko, so it’s more about getting into her head than being bombastic.

    Their music invokes a particular movie tone. Damsel just got even more interesting.
