one-oh-trix is right, bit of a pun on a radio station tag iirc from reading an interview. i love this fella's sound. he wrings so much melancholy out of his equipment: 'zones without people', 'russian mind' and 'behind the bank' to name but three. 'where does time go' from his new one ploughs the same furrow but i could listen to this stuff all day.

sonderangerbot, Thursday, 29 July 2010 03:00 (seven years ago) Permalink

thanks for linking that interview. i was initially repulsed by the sound-excess of returnal but it's become my most frequently played album lately. looking forward to hearing rifts. cool to see Mego releasing more broadly-appealing artists like this (and Emeralds)

Palpatean Mists (Lowell N. Behold'n), Thursday, 29 July 2010 03:10 (seven years ago) Permalink

both returnal and rifts are incredible, have been obsessing over them for the majority of this year. i know this sounds lame but BUY THE VINYL. it really does help bring certain textures into focus more so than i remember on the mp3s

emotional radiohead whatever (Jordan), Thursday, 29 July 2010 20:30 (seven years ago) Permalink

ambient by way of rhythmic overload and interweave = not as many beats? i like the bc-ness of tracks like "computer vision" -- kind of bumping without a drum part ...

good show, too -- both times ive seen him it was heavy but not too long. at the release party for returnal it was a nice blend of that record's noise and rifts-style washed-out sci fi sheen.

uptown churl, Thursday, 29 July 2010 20:45 (seven years ago) Permalink

rifts is outstanding. love the super cascading stuff like "ships without meaning". haven't given the new one enough time yet.

"pelham island road" recalls pete standing alone, with the repeated melodic figure early on in the track.

uptown churl, Thursday, 9 September 2010 21:09 (seven years ago) Permalink

I suspect he may turn out to be a better producer/collaborator than a lead artist - without a vocalist to give the whole thing shape I don't find his music particularly sonically or compositionally interesting. What all the artists Sherburne lists have in common (and I'd stick the Ford + Lopatin and James Ferraro albums in there as well) is this sense that someone's turned on all the lights really brightly. I'm used to electronic music feeling either noctural or sunny, there's a really stark neon glare to all of these artists, with varying degrees of success.

ok i've been playing this this morning and i'm warming up to it. once the chaos shock wears off, i'm understanding the "rock record"/it has riffs!/opn-album-you-can-thrash-to descriptors and the emotional center is starting to reveal itself. ordered the LP.

conceptually interesting and somewhat difficult but was nonetheless capable of connecting on a strange emotional level. Kinda magic.

I do kinda wish it got even more metal but then... I guess it would just be a venetian snares album or something?

speaking of which, is there something like the chaotic industrial parts of "sticky drama" that lasts more than 30secs and is just as cool?

i'm about to make a heavily, heavily qualified recommendation

but the song 'blackjazz deathtrance' by norwegian jazz-techno-metal outfit 'shining' kind of fits the bill

the qualification is that it is garish and horrible :D but it's also kind of amazing. also the really good bit doesn't kick in until near the end

anyway i think the 0pn song is better and handles the chaotic industrial thing better. will continue to try and think of examples

Treeship, Sunday, 22 November 2015 23:06 (one year ago) Permalink

saw him live two nights ago and there was way more distortion and the whole thing was super loud. when he talked to the audience he would still use the filter that rendered what he said indecipherable and it was a pretty funny gag.

Treeship, Sunday, 22 November 2015 23:09 (one year ago) Permalink

My ears were definitely ringing afterwards. There's a surprising amount of bass engineered into his later work as well.

MikoMcha, Sunday, 22 November 2015 23:14 (one year ago) Permalink

he's playing at a pretty small club here in march - 300 capacity - i don't know if he's announced a full spring tour yet, but i'm curious if the idea is to play at mostly "rock"/"punk" type venues as part of the whole G.O.D. project

braunld (Lowell N. Behold'n), Tuesday, 15 March 2016 22:58 (one year ago) Permalink

i wish i saw him on the Replica and R Plus Seven tours. G.O.D. and Returnal are still a bit too harsh for me. Last night he played most of G.O.D. and the song "Returnal" (which i love). He also played a completely rearranged version of "Zebra" with none of its original elements except for a minute of the outro. the set was all a bit samey after a while. The unrelenting bass made me and all my friends really tired, bizarre feeling walking out of the show, felt like i took an ambien. During Jason Lescalleet's set, he played this tone that made me feel like time had slowed down - it was hard to breathe, my girlfriend said she almost fainted. we though it was neat. i enjoyed Lopatin's crowd banter processed beyond recognition. also, there were signs pasted all over the venue that read "PHOTOGRAPHERS: You are welcome to photograph ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER for the *FIRST* song of their set. That's it. Thanks!" Doors opened an hour and a half late, too. Can't help but think it was all part of the rock band cliche concept of G.O.D., which was cool. I enjoyed all the conceptual accoutrement more than the music. There was someone in front of me that inexplicably knew every word to "Freaky Eyes" and was belting it out, beer in the air.

Congratulations, Daniel Lopatin!

Oneohtrix Point Never (Daniel Lopatin) has won the Soundtrack Award at Cannes Film Festival 2017. He was honored for his original score for Good Time, a new crime thriller directed by Josh and Benny Safdie. The film stars Robert Pattinson and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Lopatin beat out Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, Jed Kurzel, and Ibrahim Maalouf for the award. He joins former winners Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Cliff Martinez, Howard Shore, Jim Jarmusch’s band SQÜRL, Lim Giong, and more. Lopatin’s score features a collaborative song with Iggy Pop called “The Pure and the Damned,” which can be heard in the film’s trailer below. Good Time hits theaters August 11.
