“Few modern performers manipulate sound quite as aggressively or effectively as Tim Hecker and Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never).” —NPR
Two leading international electronic experimentalists share an aurally adventurous evening of light and shadow that dips deep into drone, ambient, distortion, and beyond. The 8 pm show begins with Tim Hecker’s physical and emotive exploration of noise, dissonance, and melody—“foreboding, abstract pieces in which static and sub-bass rumbles open up around slow moving notes and chords, like fissures in the earth waiting to swallow them whole” (New York Times). A special collaboration closes the night as Oneohtrix Point Never—known for lush and layered pieces formed by sound swatches and electronic washes punctuated with field recordings and sampled loops—joins forces with media artist Nate Boyce and his hallucinatory computer-generated films for an eye-popping and ear-opening investigation into sound and vision.
The order for the 10:30 pm performance will be Oneohtrix Point Never followed by Tim Hecker.
Note: Performance includes lighting and haze effects. 90 minutes.
