Oneohtrix Point Never is Daniel Lopatin, a US native at the forefront of the modern electronic composition scene. Though Lopatin’s rise felt meteoric following his 2009 double-disc anthology ‘Rifts’ and its 2010 follow-up ‘Returnal’, (praised by the likes of Wire, Pitchfork, Fader, Guardian UK, The Quietus, and XLR8R) his love of polyphonic synthesizers dates back to childhood jam sessions with his father’s Roland Juno-60, an instrument which, like B.B. King’s ‘Lucille’, he has never left behind.
‘Replica’, his latest effort, is an electronic song cycle based around lo-fi audio procured from television advertisement compilations. These sample-based meditations are as lyrical as they are ecological, featuring re-purposed “ghost vocals” which serve as narration for Lopatin’s signature amorphous, ambient passages. The placid, synthetic surroundings of ‘Returnal’ are accelerated via darker, propulsive terrains using samplers, analogue filtering, tape manipulation, acoustic piano, plate reverb and sub-frequencies.
On December 17, 2011 PopRally premiered the multimedia performance ‘RELIQUARY HOUSE’ by OPN and visual artist Nate Boyce, created specifically for The Museum of Modern Art as a re-imagining of modernist sculptures from their collection. Daniel has also composed music for a troupe of 16 quadrotors (flying robots) to dance to and manipulate sound and light at the Saacthi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase 2012 for MEET YOUR CREATOR.
