Octotrip was formed after eight talented musicians who had come to study in the old Gaul capital at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon (France), got together.
This unusual ensemble of young players is open to different kinds of musical language and style, and their repertoire consists exclusively of specially composed arrangements and original pieces. Their musical influences come from classical and contemporary music, but also improvised music and jazz.
The desire to push forward in the search for their own sound and in building up an original repertoire has led them to work with great composers like Andy Emler and Patrice Caratini. But also with promising young French composers such as Gabriel Philippot, Bastien Ballaz, François Chapuis and Robinson Khoury.
Octotrip is supported by Sacem, Adami, Société Générale, Fnapec and Antoine-Courtois.
