tomutonttu / oneohtrix point nevertour split” seven inch single record

  • tomutonttu - likaiset pilvet

  • oneohtrix point never - wayland lincoln border
may 2010 release ; issued as a “tour only” merch-table banger for an island jaunt shared by jan “tomutonttu” anderzen & dan “oneohtrix point never” lopatin, we did get a few (heaping) handfuls of this single, showing both jan (ridiculous, sparkling, mile-a-minute change-uppings, heavy on the tape-manipulation tip - something of a “young person’s guide” to his particular brand of mutant moogknucklery - listen to the sound-sample) & dan (effortlessly elegant mood-ring evocations, pregnant with lush pads & flowing emoticons) at their very-special as-it-ever-was best ...
alter press release...

to mark the occasion of their uk tour, alter is proud to present this vinyl pairing of finland's tomutonttu (kemialliset ystavat's jan anderzen), and new york's oneohtrix point never (daniel lopatin). both artists contribute two new tracks that, whilst being sonically different from each another, create a unique synthesis formed from a diy approach to electronic music, which makes this pairing both logical and inevitable.

tomutonttu's "likaiset pilvet" sees anderzen diving deep into his archives, and re-emerging with something new after a heavy editing session. the track kicks off with some fragmented electronics, bringing to mind an image of a dozen bernard parmegiani records all melting in unison. the second half sees a shift in pace and a more playful atmosphere, introducing elements such as rhythmic loops and other scattered sounds that, as a whole, bear similarities to eric copeland's recent output.

opn's "wayland lincoln border" is a continuation of lopatin's synth work, which is already well recognized in his young career. building deep layers of warm sound from trance-like synth melodies, lopatin's music is evocative of motion as it never feels stuck - always evolving, constructing and deconstructing new worlds from sound, and here he provides the perfect counterpoint to anderzen's chaos.

released in an edition of 500 copies with cover art by jan anderzen.

oneohtrix point neverzones without people” long playing record

  • computer vision
  • format & journey north
  • zones without people

  • learning to control myself
  • disconnecting entirely
  • emil cioran
  • hyperdawn
august 2009 release ; gotta hand it to dan “oneohtrix point never” lopatin (pronunciations vary from “one oh tricks” to “on eo tricks”) - after a pretty damn prolific year thusfar, he’s stilling turning in a-grade work ...

case in point ; this, only his second “proper” full-length (discounting the scores of regional, tape-only releases) ; while there are of course many of the lovely, auto-arpeggiated / gear-changing tunes (at which dan excels) to be found here, there are just as many detours into detuned, cyborg-nightmare wastelands (the first track on the second side quickly descends into a distorted morass of cracked portamento, the telling “emil cioran” starts with a straight machine-music pulse before yielding a fine vapor of harmonizing drone cloudage - listen to the sound-sample) ...

dan’s at the top of his game right now ; i honestly can’t see a near-future in which i won’t be looking forward to each new electronic missive ... highly recommended !!!

arbor115 oneohtrix point never - "zones without people" lp

daniel lopatin’s oneohtrix point never represents a rift in time; an isolationist expedition into the archaeology of sound, notably the analog polysynth as a means of organic creation. “zones without people” is the second record in the opn trilogy; acting as a bridge between the drifting, alien compositions of “betrayed in the octagon” and a music more rooted in melody and introspective nostalgia as a search for self. an exercise in ‘in between-ness’: reconciling noise and melodicism, the stasis of drone and the spasomadic nature of concret, the historical narrative of 70s kraut synth music and 80s techno. arpeggios and sequencers play a key role in this amalgamation, as these forms of repetition create an attachment to a certain sentiment neither human nor machine. the record reflects this transformation; the a side has distinct emotional flourishes, while the majority of the b side seems to be overtaken in cold, mechanized melodies (like attempts at teaching a machine to feel). the final track “hyperdawn” is a solution to these two disparate modes of interpreting stimuli: a pure union of veins and patch cables.

  • nil admirari
  • describing bodies
  • stress waves
  • returnal

  • pelham island road
  • where does time go
  • ouroboros
  • preyouandi
june 2010 release ; ah, it warms the cockles of my heart to see dan go global with this, his editions mego debut (not his the social registry debut, his kompakt debut, or his warp debut, but mego ; wise choice) ...

... and in fact the opening track here does a bang-up job of paying homage not just to the label’s influential 90s output (it’s a screeching, digital pile-up with seemingly hand-played drum machine rhythms ; on par with an early farmers manual side) but to the rest of the “noise underground” from which he rose (& with which always seemed a little out-of-sorts) ... that the album immediately dials it back a few notches into the familiar upper-harmonizer pads & floating, auto-arpeggiated chillage with which dan’s more formally associated is telling, and by the end of the first side we’re hearing some straight blade-runner-styled electro-balladeering that ought to lift dan up out of the cold & into the radio spotlight ...

a trilogy of synth-trancers open up the b-side ; in all honesty this sounds like dan’s most fully realized work in this area, with endless layer(ing)s of subtle, floating sawtooth melancholy fleshing out the audio strata in increasingly detailed ways ... and then the garbled, echo-percussion jam at the end seals the deal, linking hassell’s whole “fourth-world” ethos with dan’s trademark soporific/lulling pitch-altered vox-box rocking ...

visually, the record’s another gap-bridger, with stephen o’malley’s layout explicitly bridging the gap between tina frank’s 90s work for the label & dan’s whole greyed-out helical scan matrix ; endless prism-clips rendered in spot varnish coating a full four panels of a “heavy” gatefold ... best thing from dan yet ; if you’ve only managed to grip any of the small-run / regional / provincial issues of his music, consider this the upgraed ... highly recommended !!!

oneohtrix point never: returnal lp gatefold
release date: 18.06.2010

all music by daniel lopatin
recorded and mixed at ridge valley digital, massachusetts july - august 09 & february 10

instrumentation:
akai ax-60, roland juno-60, roland msq-700, korg electribe es-1, voice

recorded using a personal computer
mastered by james plotkin
tape-op & additional engineering by al carlson
vinyl cut at dubplates & mastering, berlin
design by stephen o'malley
photography by yelena avenesova

‘returnal’ is the fourth album from daniel lopatin’s oneohtrix point never project, after ‘betrayed in the octagon’ (deception island, 2007), ‘zones without people’ (arbor, 2009) and ‘russian mind’ (no fun, 2009). all 3 albums being superbly compiled on the ‘rifts’ double cd set (no fun, 2009).

it sees lopatin fine tune his craft for creation of deep atmospheres and texture even further. starting off with the mind blowing triptych of ‘nil admiari’ / ’describing bodies’ / ’stress waves’, which fires off into a noise/rhythm excess before entering a zone of relative calm building to the melancholy of the final part. this set the tone perfectly for the albums title track, a stunning out of this world ballad featuring lopatin's near desperate vocal delivery, ending what could be seen as one of his most chilling and thought provoking sides to date

the atmosphere is slightly lifted as the darkened sun comes up over the ruins on ‘pelham island road’ and ‘where does time go’, with the album closing with edgy broken beats and fourth world possible landscapes of ‘preyouandi’, which fades into the distance with echoes of the ‘returnal’ chorus, closing the loop.

what's burnt into memory here is lopatin’s love affair with the long, slow path back home... the cycle... the hypnotic sector... the ghost in the machine... and whether people are making dance music or hip hop or space head music or metal, the ouroboros is present in every sector -- as it was  in bach's study, and in the elephant songs of the ituri forests.

september 2012 release ; ... been a minute since we’ve heard (any) new music from dan or jeff, uniting here to claim a side each of this, the second split lp on nna tapes (after the one w/ eli keszler & i from earlier in the year) ...

dan’s side-length “music for a reliquary house” (prior the audio component to a nate boyce video installation of the same name) suite casts micro-fragments of plundered voices & documentary audio fragments (largely, it would seem, culled from films about the referenced sculptors) into a squirming haze of tight, bidirectionally-looped swatches of “frozen” sound ...

jeff’s is a continuation of his work with clustered piano-roll events & burst / blast-oriented frac-rack fizzle ; as elegant as anything on last year’s “the canon” while furthering the exploration of slowly climbing / descending line-cliche explored on “the terminal symphony” ...

... killer record ; gorgeous art & (as with all nna tapes vinyl) a printed inner, really nicely mastered lp (c/o the infallible dubplates & mastering folks) ... highly recommended !!!

nna051: oneohtrix point never / rene hell split lp

nna’s second split lp unites two american artists on the cutting edge of experimental electronic music: brooklyn’s oneohtrix point never and los angeles’ rene hell. daniel lopatin and jeff witscher have each been working tirelessly in the us underground for the last several years, releasing progressive, forward-thinking, and highly acclaimed music under a wide variety of guises and manifestations. in 2012, we see them each offering their respective unique visions and interpretations of digital music in the modern world, processing the world around us through the lens of technology and modern sound.

oneohtrix point never brings us “music for reliquary house”, which consists of sonic reworkings from the “reliquary house” audio/visual installation, a collaboration between lopatin and video artist nate boyce. in a series of five pieces, lopatin delivers a sequence of hallucinatory informatic assaults, a satirical re-envisioning of modernist sculpture. picking up where 2011’s “replica” left off, opn uses digital technology to dissect human speech patterns and timbres almost beyond recognition. via computer, lopatin converts pieces of text to human speech, only to dismantle it entirely, surgically reassembling the scraps of frequencies and the shrapnel of pure sound into something new altogether … starkly melodic at times, but altogether harsh and inhuman as a whole.

rene hell presents “in 1980 i was a blue square”, a suite of five pieces for piano, synthesizer, and computer. juxtaposing mid 20th century classical music with chaotic electronic blasts, witscher creates his own style of contemporary music that is peaceful and violent on top of itself, creating a rift of confusion that sits nicely between more vast, soundscape-like vignettes. witscher’s previous forays into the worlds of noise and ambient are tastefully apparent here, indicative of an artist who is able to retain a broad array of influences and use them in a way that is both personal and original.

mastered and cut by lupo at dubplates & mastering, berlin.

  • laser to laser
march 2009 release ; no fun vinyl edition of this prior deception island tape by daniel lopatin ...

this one ought to have the dyed-in-the-wool lifer of no fun produkt a bit perplexed ; rather than the “harsh walls” of recent entries by the rita & carlos giffoni, the tone here is much closer to a love scene in a classic john woo movie and/or the early-80s poly-synth wave of home-studio electronic music than anything even remotely from the harsh noise sector ...

for one, there are melodies ; lots of them, along with big ‘old sweeping arpeggios offering an emotional range rarely heard in this renaissance of “cold electronics” ... sure there’s the stray interplanetary transmission and/or terry riley-esque echo-line burner, but by far the most memorable sections are when daniel lets his fingers do the walking, offering a fine blend of tonal harmony reminiscient of vangelis, the aforementioned michael gibbs, or even joe zawinul ...

daniel’s on something of a fast-track at the moment after relocating from cambridge here to brooklyn last year ; this is his first real mass-market release, and it’s the one to check out. highly recommended !!!

43 oneohtrix point never 'betrayed in the octagon' lp

oneohtrix point never is daniel lopatin's project of polysynth epic electronic sound. cascading melodies, holistic drones, and folding tones combine to create a dichotomy of sound that reflects on the organic discovery of our nature and the infinity possibilities within our enclosed human systems. betrayed in the octagon is a frozen fantasy, a liminal record that brings to mind caves and other hidden places where life started billions of years ago. opn is a lost soul from the polysynth epoch giving a nod to the old masters while moving trough the systems of 21st century life and reflecting them in the pure beauty of total electronic moving sound.

originally released as a cassette on deception island in 2007, octagon was the first opn release. nfp is proud to bring it back re-sequenced and re-mastered for vinyl as the first opn lp, limited to 300 copies. artwork by chris madak.
