ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER
Oneohtrix Point Never’s MYRIAD is a mind bending performance that blends live music, installation art and customised visuals to re-contextualise his recently released and highly acclaimed album, Age Of. The London premier at the Barbican in August last year sold out over 3 months in advance. For all those that missed out, RFB is delighted to announce the next evolution of Myriad coming to London's iconic Roundhouse on Friday night, March 8th.
In the words of those that have already seen the show:
The Guardian - "Lopatin is flanked by pianist Kelly Moran, drummer and percussionist Eli Keszler, and Aaron David Ross, who plays an array of cinematic synths and special effects They pull off a jaw-dropping performance: a faithful yet fluid rendition of an album that, on record, seems laden with computer-assisted compositional quirks no human could master.”
New York Times - "It billowed and throbbed, tinkled and crashed, swooped and pealed around the grand space. No narrative, no matter how cosmic, could match the sound”.
The 405 - "The sum of all this is a show that astounds in its artistic ambitions. it’s hard not to feel like you’re being subjected to a sensory overload. It’s as though you just spent the last hour and a half plugged into a machine that transmitted the entirety of human existence into your brain, with all its hopes and anxieties amplified.”
The Line Of Best Fit - "an arresting and daringly original performance which will be etched into the minds of the audience for a long time”.
The Ringer - "Watching Myriad live was the closest I have ever gotten to feeling like I’m inside an Alien movie, and probably the closest I ever hope to come”
The Roundhouse performance creates the opportunity for Oneohtrix Point Never, for the first time since it’s world premier at NYC’s Park Avenue Armory, to expand upon the decadent grandeur of the original concertscape production featuring live visuals from long time collaborator Nate Boyce together with the rest of the MYRIAD ensemble - Kelly Moran, Aaron David Ross and Eli Keszler in an expanded performance including additional classic OPN material and special guests.
