Oneohtrix Point Never has shared two tracks for download to commemorate 2014. The first, ‘Rush’, is an unreleased track from ‘R Plus Seven’ whilst ‘Bubs’ is a collaboration from A. G. Cook and OPN.
2014 was a busy year, with ‘Commissions I’ released for Record Store Day in April and continued expansion of his list of collaborators with names such as Nine Inch Nails and Koji Morimoto.
A second release for Warp since signing last year, Oneohtrix Point Never’s ‘Commissions I’ was announced in March for release at Record Store Day and featured three pieces from previous projects including ‘Meet Your Creator’, composed for a Quadrotor performance at Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase in 2012. Complete details of the 12”, featured in Pitchfork’s The Year in Music 2014: The Best Album Covers of 2014, are available here.
After the release, Oneohtrix Point Never was announced as tour support for Nine Inch Nails and SoundGarden alongside an interview with Billboard available here. The shows in July, made up just a section of global dates throughout the year that featured ‘highlights’ such as the ‘definitive’ ‘R Plus Seven’ experience at Hudson Mohawke’s ‘Chimes’ event, a performance of his score for Koji Morimoto’s Magnetic Rose at Jodrell Bank, the premiere of ‘Bullet Hell Abstraction I-IV’ at Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo and LACMA’s costume ball in Los Angeles, CA.
