ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER / RENE HELL - SPLIT (LP)


"NNA's second split LP unites two American artists on the cutting edge of experimental electronic music: Brooklyn's Oneohtrix Point Never and Los Angeles' Rene Hell. Daniel Lopatin and Jeff Witscher have each been working tirelessly in the US underground for the last several years, releasing progressive, forward-thinking, and highly acclaimed music under a wide variety of guises and manifestations. In 2012, we see them each offering their respective unique visions and interpretations of digital music in the modern world, processing the world around us through the lens of technology and modern sound. Oneohtrix Point Never brings us "Music For Reliquary House", which consists of sonic reworkings from the "Reliquary House" audio/visual installation, a collaboration between Lopatin and video artist Nate Boyce. In a series of five pieces, Lopatin delivers a sequence of hallucinatory informatic assaults, a satirical re-envisioning of modernist sculpture. Rene Hell presents "In 1980 I Was A Blue Square", a suite of five pieces for piano, synthesizer, and computer. Juxtaposing mid 20th century classical music with chaotic electronic blasts, Witscher creates his own style of contemporary music that is peaceful and violent on top of itself, creating a rift of confusion that sits nicely between more vast, soundscape-like vignettes."
