Oneohtrix Point Never (US)

Brooklyn-based musician Daniel Lopatin is a highly skilled practitioner in the art of oblique, open-ended experimentation. Since the late aughts, this inspired offspring of professional musicians has proven a hot commodity in leftfield synth circles. He stitches together twitchy, sample-based tableaux, chromatically altered MIDI clusters, and ominous circuit board miscellany into a distinctive musical language. Since releasing Returnal on Editions Mego (2010), the prolific Lopatin has repeatedly and fearlessly recalibrated the digital gymnastics of his sonic template. In between film work (scoring Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring) and co-running lauded label Software (home to the likes of Slava and Autre Ne Veut), he’s collaborated with like-minded tinkerers such as Rene Hell, Tim Hecker, and his label co-founder, Joel Ford (as Ford & Lopatin). Lopatin’s debut album for Warp, R Plus Seven (2013), maps out a playfully chaotic narrative of organic and synthetic elements engaged in a dangerous data liaison. His live set (featuring long-time visual partner-in-crime, Nate Boyce) promises much in the way of otherworldly frequencies on the lam, reveling in their rhythmic freedom as they rumble with algorithmic precision.
