  • ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER “GOOD TIME” SCORE WINS CANNES SOUNDTRACK AWARD 2017

    Oneohtrix Point Never has taken home the prestigious Soundtrack Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival for his visceral original score for Good Time.  Directed by Josh and Benny Safdie and starring Robert Pattinson and Jennifer Jason Leigh, the hypnotic crime thriller follows Pattinson’s Connie in a twisted odyssey through the New York underworld in a desperate attempt to get his brother out of jail (watch trailer).

    Oneohtrix Point Never beat the likes of Jonny Greenwood, Jed Kurzel and Ibrahim Maalouf to take home the prize. Previous winners include Cliff Martinez for The Neon Demon (2016),  Lim Giong for The Assassin (2015) and Howard Shore for Map to the Stars (2014). http://cannessoundtrack.com/en/

    Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and the Safdie brothers became close collaborators through a shared love of cult genre movies and music, and their level of collaboration here has a rare depth of symbiosis of picture and score.  Mundane events become dramatic, montages become mini operas and Iggy Pop features on the poignant closer “The Pure And The Damned”.  Good Time hits cinemas from August 11.

    Press on the score:
    “Good Time looks terrific, bringing a scrappy sheen to the Safdies’ native borough. But more essential to its tight clench is the knockout underscoring, an almost nonstop blitz of intoxicating electronica from Brooklyn-based experimental composer Daniel Lopatin, who records as Oneohtrix Point Never. Lopatin also collaborated with Iggy Pop on an original closing-credits song, aptly titled “The Pure and the Damned.” Throughout, the prog-rock synth sounds conjure echoes of the vintage films of William Friedkin, Michael Mann and perhaps a hint of Assault on Precinct 13 John Carpenter, and yet the sonic carpeting never feels derivative.” – Hollywood Reporter
    “It’s perfectly matched with the score provided by Oneohtrix Point Never’s Daniel Lopatin, which nods to Tangerine Dream–style VHS thriller soundtracks of yore while going someplace far more inventive and expressive than most current imitators. Lopatin’s anxious squiggles of melodies and sonic assaults give us as good a sense as any of what it feels like inside Connie’s head.” – Vulture
    “La bande-son elle aussi tourne le dos aux habitudes. Composée par le musicien électro Oneohtrix Point Never sur un mode qui oscille entre la prophétie de malheur et la rêverie, elle parfait la sensation de cauchemar éveillé qui finit par envahir le film.” – Le Monde

  • Oneohtrix Point Never releases Garden of Delete

    Oneohtrix Point Never’s new album Garden Of Delete is out now worldwide.

    “One of our generation’s most creative and forward-thinking musicians”
    THE 405
    “absolutely gripping—strange, moving, hilarious, sometimes pushing the limits of good taste, but always in a way that makes you want to hear more.”
    Pitchfork, 8.7/10 (Best New Music)
    “A sound collage like no other, Garden of Delete finds Lopatin engaging listeners with an album that almost defies description.”
    Exclaim, 9/10
    “veers back and forth between sections of serene glitch-folk and overbearing, distorted riffage like a manic-depressive motherboard.”
    The Verge
    “a wholly singular and groundbreaking release that, while adhering to many past and present genre trends, seems prepared to go further in collating and collaging influences than most other electronic releases dare to go”
    The 405, 9/10
    “a beautifully arranged and slightly sickly morass of curdled pop tropes, out of which spurt a bodacious riff or glossy rave arpeggio. Oddly no-one does this better.”
    Uncut
    “[Garden Of Delete] isn’t about sensory pleasure. It’s about sensory gluttony, auditory overload, and revelling in the difficulty of its pacing.”
    The Line Of Best Fit, 8.5/10
    “Lopatin screenshots the landscape of desire, a sketch of philo-fiction found between self-erasure and self-aggrandizement, built as a theoretical installation of denial.”
    Tiny Mix Tapes, 4.5/5

    Daniel Lopatin AKA Oneohtrix Point Never discusses the world of Garden Of Delete in a number of interviews,

  • Oneohtrix Point Never signs to Warp with album for Sept 30th

    News just announced by Warp

    We are pleased to announce the signing of Oneohtrix Point Never, and his debut release for Warp ‘R Plus Seven’ due 30th September.

    “Music that gently triggers a series of images and feelings, none of which you can name and all of which seem entirely common.” – The New Yorker

    Under the moniker Oneohtrix Point Never, Daniel Lopatin’s debut on Warp contains many familiarities for listeners who have followed the acclaimed electronic music composer’s development over the last 5 years, however the new record is a major departure from previous work. Lopatin’s experimental inclinations lurk behind the scenes – in the concepts and procedures he adopts to create the tracks.

    ‘R Plus Seven’ is disruptive and hypnotic in equal measure, and the fun of it lies in trusting Lopatin as he guides you past – and often through – a succession of walls and mirrors.

    17/9/13 – Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Cathedral – Brooklyn, NY

  • Hecker Lopatin album & special shows

    Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never has just released his collaborative album with fellow ambient / noise experimenter Tim Hecker. Instrumental Tourist is a beautiful collection of electronic soundscapes, synth jams and droned out dream worlds.

  • Oneohtrix Point Never debuts new collaboration with Nate Boyce, RELIQUARY HOUSE

    On December 17, 2011 PopRally premiered the multimedia performance RELIQUARY HOUSE by Oneohtrix Point Never and visual artist Nate Boyce, created specifically for The Museum of Modern Art.

    OPN and Boyce re-imagine the canon of modernist sculpture through hallucinatory reconstructions of works by David Smith, Jacob Epstein, and Anthony Caro, among other sculptures in MoMA’s collection. Boyce uses computer-generated imagery to transform these sculptures into kinetic apparitions that inhabit incongruous and “impossible” landscapes and architectural environments. Abetted by OPN’s sound design, Boyce reconfigures the museum setting, pulling historical art objects into a new context.

    This Fall, OPN and Boyce will bring RELIQUARY HOUSE to the UK/Europe for select dates.

    Contact ned@littlebig.org.uk for booking info.

    While you’re at it, check out the soundtrack he made for MEET YOUR CREATOR. Daniel 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. Watch here.
