Andy Warhol Museum
Doors 7:30 p.m.; show 8 p.m.
If you did not get the chance to see his appearances as part of the duos Games and Ford & Lopatin at the VIA Music & New Media Festival, you won’t want to miss seeing Oneohtrix Point Never perform solo at The Warhol. The Brooklyn-based electronic musician—née Daniel Lopatin—will fill the museum’s newly refurbished lobby with his hypnotic and gently building compositions, which incorporate experimental elements, immersive loops, samples and beats.
Performing limited dates in the US, Canada and UK, Lopatin’s released his latest album, R Plus Seven, in 2013 on Warp Records, the independent British record label known for launching the careers of numerous pioneering electronic musicians. The title of the 10-track album, OPN’s debut for Warp, is a reference to a collective of French writers and mathematicians founded in 1960 who employed a particular writing technique to compose verse.
Lopatin, who also runs his own imprint called Software, has crafted live soundscapes for prestigious art venues such as The Museum of Modern Art and Tate Britain. His current tour includes concerts at several additional US art centers, such as the Wexner Center in Columbus and Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.
San Francisco-based artist Nate Boyce, a frequent Lopatin collaborator, will augment the set’s multimedia environment, providing live visual accompaniment for the show, which co-presented with the VIA Music & New Media Festival. Opening act Dutch E Germ, a late addition to the bill, is the electronic music project of Tim Dewit, who co-founded influential bands The Cranium and Gang Gang Dance, and has played drums for Cass McCombs, Neil Hegarty and Teengirl Fantasy.
