Electronic music composer to wow crowd at ASU's West campus

March 18, 2015

Hailed as a “genius of electronic music,” Oneohtrix Point Never will perform at Arizona State University’s West campus at 8 p.m., March 26. The evening will be a multimedia immersive experience where the sounds and projections invite the audience to step into a unique world.

Oneohtrix Point Never is the recording name of composer Daniel Lopatin. The Brooklyn-based musician is known for deftly balancing the experimental with the accessible, and defies simple description as an artist. Oneohtrix Point Never Download Full Image

Lopatin creates highly conceptual worlds of ambient sound, and his passion to find personal meaning in failed new-age utopias and liminal science fiction environments often brings his compositions to the brinks of minimalism, drone, proto-techno, noise and pop, clarifying the past through a blissful repetition of its signifiers.

Performed with the projected visual creations of artist Nate Boyce, the concert will allow the audience to be immersed in the environment of sound and image, which has been described as “like a cracked mirror refracting the sounds of the past.”

Admission is free. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. for the 8 p.m. performance.

The West campus is at 4701 W. Thunderbird Rd. in Phoenix, with the concert to be held in the Sun Devil Fitness Center. There is special event parking on campus for this evening.
