Oneohtrix Point Never

Oneohtrix Point Never, aka Brooklyn electro soloist Daniel Lopatin, has co-sculpted a very conceptual split LP with LA digi-instrumentalist Rene Hell, real name Jeff Witscher.

Entitled ‘Music For Reliquary House’, Oneohtrix’s half will comprise five re-rendered versions of music from an AV installation Lopatin staged with video artist Nate Boyce. Or rather, a “sequence of hallucinatory informatic assaults, a satirical re-envisioning of modernist sculpture”. Or alternatively, re-constituted fragments of human speech, “dissected” by OPN by means of digital technology.

Rene Hell will present ‘In 1980 I Was A Blue Square’, a five-piece suite of classical/contemporary piano, synthesizer, and computer compositions.

Perplexing as all this sounds, it’ll be intriguing to hear the two projects when they’re released in tandem via NNA Tapes on 17 Sep.
