This work was created in merry Czechoslovak, and for a “Faustian” experiment also favouring sixties. In the hindsight we may call the Octagon (1962) by Ladislav Kupkovič, being the brightest artistic persona of then new music and the initiator of non-formal group Music of today, a parable of good and bad, not only in production but also in authors personal life. In the time of the creation and after a “little while” of liberty the author immigrated to West Germany and his work of art became a symbol of two phenomenon of an age that represented the social and also political relationships. They also documented the political animosities of seventies, creating the pressure from Kremlin and the society was under the influence of normalization.
