TIM HECKER + DANIEL LOPATIN (Oneohtrix Point Never) // Co La

  • Location:
    Roulette, 509 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, New York, 11217, US

Two of the most distinctive voices in electronic music, Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and Tim Hecker have spent years warping the grids between pop, ambient and composition. Hecker’s music is built on static and shifting drones, intensely physical and tactile, while Lopatin’s approach is comparatively playful and steeped in appropriation. The duo’s collaborative debut, “Instrumental Tourist”, released on Software Recordings Co, finds two artists transcending their respective visions by agreeing to a new language, one which verbalizes their mutual infatuations and apprehensions with the systems they’ve both built and are buried by. Tonight is the duo’s first US performance. Also performing tonight is Co La, the primary project of musician and producer Matt Papich, whose elusive and abstract sample-based electronic music draws from the saccharine core of reggae, exotica, and 60s girl groups.
