Room 237... Oneohtrix Point Never (Brooklyn, U.S) + HELM (PAN/Luke Younger/Birds Of Delay) 23/11/11
£7.50 advance

Probably the most talked about non-club electronic musician over the last few years. He has even has his music remixed by Antony (Antony & the Johnsons and Fennesz)
Oneohtrix Point Never is Daniel Lopatin, a US native whose work has
brought him to the forefront of the modern electronic composition scene.
Though Lopatin’s rise felt meteoric following his 2009 double-disc
anthology ‘Rifts’ and its 2010 follow-up ‘Returnal’, (praised by the likes
of Wire, Pitchfork, Fader, Guardian UK, The Quietus, and XLR8R) his love
of polyphonic synthesizers dates back to childhood jam sessions with his
father’s Roland Juno-60, an instrument which, like B.B. King’s ‘Lucille’,
he has never left behind.

"OPN has guile and a naivety that locates his music in the grandest
tradition of sonic dream-craft." -FACT

‘Replica’, his latest effort, is an electronic song cycle based around
lo-fi audio procured from television advertisement compilations. These
sample-based meditations are as lyrical as they are ecological, featuring
re-purposed “ghost vocals” which serve as narration for Lopatin’s
signature amorphous, ambient passages. Lopatin’s commitment to his Juno-60
is still on display, but the placid, synthetic surroundings of ‘Returnal’
are accelerated via darker, propulsive terrains using samplers, analogue
filtering, tape manipulation, acoustic piano, plate reverb and
sub-frequencies. In his own words, ““Replica has as much to do with
environmental, broadcasted, and club sounds as it does with more direct
musical influences.” The result is a heightened sense of music as part and
parcel of an overall sonic landscape.
‘Replica’ was mastered by Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Dirty
Projectors, Dan Deacon) and mixed by childhood friend Al Carlson at
Mexican Summer’s studio, marking this as Lopatin’s first proper studio
project.

I saw Helm supporting Mark McGuire the other week and it was utterly insipid. Sorry Helm
