Presented by Boston CyberArts at Atlantic Wharf
Boston Cyberarts is partnering with Atlantic Wharf to present Cybersounds, a new series of free concerts bringing some of the leading artists exploring the creative potential in the convergence of music, sound and technology to Boston’s Waterfront. Concerts take place the last Wednesday of every month from 6:30-8:30pm, either outdoors along Fort Point Channel or inside Atlantic Wharf’s stunning Atrium Square.
Oneohtrix Point Never is Daniel Lopatin, whose work has brought him to the forefront of the modern electronic composition scene. Although Lopatin’s rise seemed meteoric following the praise for his double disc anthology “Rifts” (coveted by the likes of Wire, Pitchfork, Fader, Guardian UK, The Quietus, and XLR8R), it is the result of a love affair with polyphonic synthesizers dating back to childhood jam sessions with his father’s Juno 60; an instrument which, like B.B. King’s Lucille, he has never left behind.
Oneohtrix Point Never's new album, “Replica” will come out on November 5 on Software, an imprint co-curated by Lopatin. According to a press release, “Replica” is a "song cycle based around lo-fi audio procured from television advertisement compilations." Lopatin says it "has as much to do with environmental, broadcasted, and club sounds as it does with more direct musical influences."
“Lopatin has accomplished something many musicians making so-called experimental music fail to do: open our ears to new sonic possibilities and, more importantly, force us to reconsider and rewire some of our most basic assumptions.” (Wire, January 2010)
