Oneohtrix Point Never is the recording name of Brooklyn-based experimental musician Daniel Lopatin.
‘Commissions I,’ the follow-up to his 2013 full-length album ‘R Plus Seven,’ is a project developed from Oneohtrix Point Never’s commissions for artwork, performance and film over the years now available for the first time on Record Store Day April 19th. The collection begins with OPN’s latest, composed for Polish Icons at Sacrum Profanum, a Warp staple that’s previously hosted Clark & Aphex Twin. Lopatin interpreted Witold Lutoslawski’s Preludes in ‘Music For Steamed Rocks’ which often appears in the OPN live set.
‘Meet Your Creator’ originally appeared in the Saatch & Saatchi viral Quadrotor performance video for their New Director’s Showcase in 2012, the same year Lopatin’s interpretation of ‘I Only Have Eyes For You’ was named Pitchfork BNT. The entire selection was re-engineered by R Plus Seven collaborator Paul Corley and mastered by Bedroom Community’s Valgeir Sigurðsson.
“Anthemic, almost rapturous hymn, the show perfectly encapsulated Lopatin’s characteristic retro-futurism, while bringing in a sly take on new age spiritualism.”
– Dazed & Confused on Saatchi’s Meet Your Creator show
“When I hear that OPN has created a version of the pop classic ”I Only Have Eyes For You”, I immediately have an idea of what I hope it might be: something disorienting and strange but also oddly accessible and, ultimately, beautiful. And that’s what we get.” – Pitchfork (Best New Track)Return home
