Weekend Digging #6: Oneohtrix Point Never: “Music for Steamed Rocks”

From Record Store Day release compiling commissioned works.

Oneohtrix Point Never: “Music for Steamed Rocks” (via SoundCloud)

In addition to his own recorded work, Daniel Lopatin, aka Oneohtrix Point Never, has dedicated time in recent years to composing and performing commissioned pieces for installation art and film. On April 19, for Record Store Day, Lopatin will release some of this music on 12” vinyl, as Commissions I, via Warp.

Along with his take on "I Only Have Eyes for You", created for Doug Aitken’s 2012 Happening at the Hirshhorn Museum, the collection includes “Meet Your Creator”, which Lopatin made that year for a video for ad agency Saatchi & Saatchi.

Commissions I also includes a 2013 work, Lopatin’s interpretation of Polish composer Witold Lutoslawski’s Preludes, titled “Music for Steamed Rocks”. It was commissioned for the series Polish Icons 2, at Kraków’s Sacrum Profanum festival. Stream that above.

Watch “Meet Your Creator” and footage from Aitken’s Happening after Oneohtrix Point Never’s upcoming tour dates.
