Experimental Brooklyn-based electronic artist and audio-visual magician's first ever performance in Prague.

Oneohtrix Point Never (Daniel Lopatin) has been hailed as an electronic music visionary. He has produced for David Byrne, written for FKA Twigs and Anhoni, and composed soundtracks for films like Good Time and Uncut Gems, but it's his body of solo work that really marks him out from the crowd. Highly individual and encompassing a dizzying range of influences and styles – from minimalism to noise to collage – they have earned him a reputation as one of the most groundbreaking artists of his day.

Much of his work splices together the old and the new – sampled, synthesised, and acoustic instruments, archive snatches of TV dialogue or 90s advertisements, nods to pop and alt-rock, forays into minimalism and noise. His music sometimes conjours darkness and dread, but is just as likely to disarm you with a laid-back groove or a modern pop feel.

 'Spectacular and engrossing electro-pop compositions.'


New York Times

His most recent album, 2023's Again is a typical sonic melting-pot, drawing on post-rock, prog, and orchestral music and blending electronica with strings. There's a distinctive, playful intelligence to it all, but it's by no means purely cerebral: Lopatin's work feels personal, bursting with ideas yet full of emotional resonance. It's plays out as a mediation on Lopatin's youthful expericnce of music from the perspective of middle age. 'The origin of my impulse to create often comes from some kind of confusion I have around memories of music,' he says. 'I always go to the endless wellspring of my false memories.'

 'Some of the most distinguished work in avant-garde electronic music.'



Lopatin's live performances are audio-visual adventures, with video and light design helping wring further nuance from the music, and providing still more food for the senses. Critics have called them 'jawdropping' events – and Oneohtrix Point Never at Prague Sounds promises to be just that.
