Synopsis

Called the "black beast of contemporary electronica" by Rolling Stone magazine, Daniel Lopatin, aka Oneohtrix Point Never, arrives at Festival dei Due Mondi in Spoleto for its Italian premiere.

Born in 1982, among the most influential electronic musicians of our time, the US producer in ten years has built his reputation writing elegiac and otherworldly electronic compositions. to Brooklyn, in the epicenter of the U.S. independent scene, in just a few years he has become a cross-genre reference for many bands, not only in the electronic sphere. Aficionados of the genre will not miss his collaborations with names such as FKA Twigs, Caroline Polachek, Arca, Rosalía, Charli XCX, Anohni, Nine Inch Nails, filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie, and The Weeknd, with whom he worked on After Hours and Dawn FM, two of the best-selling pop albums of the decade, and for whom he was responsible for the musical direction of the Super Bowl 2021 half-time show.

Between ambient, noisemaking, and ecstasy-and a debt at least theoretically to Edgar Varèse-her music has a strong experimental edge that combines sounds of the past and present. It does so in a way that is at once familiar and chimerical, strange but laden with wonder; pop influences and heady rhythms make it always accessible; when it includes lyrics, they rarely have a confessional character but the disruptive force of fixing the tenuousness of our bonds.

"The quantum leaps of technology constantly confront us to with the gulf between what is real and what is less real." Oneohtrix Point Never speaks directly to this new feeling: the ease and euphoria of it, but also the hazy boredom of an ersatz, disembodied facsimile of life. Critic Simon Reynolds said of OPN: "It's hard to think to another contemporary musician who addresses the experience of hyper-modernity-living and dying on the Internet-with the same precision or compassion. Lopatin has found a way to make the fragmented experience of our current age not only beautiful, but true."

Again is his tenth record, the fourth in the new creative phase that in 2015 saw the release of Garden of Delete, which combines cultured electronica with industrial music and dirty, messy techno heard from Lopatin from as a teenager, and moves on from the subsequent Magic Oneohtrix Point Never and Age of. In Again he draws on the musical ferment of the 90s and 00s, between alternative rock and post-rock. These are not ghosts from the past, Lopatin turns his gaze to the future, mixing promise, hope and threat.
