Commissions I is a project developed from Oneohtrix Point Never’s commissions for artwork, performance and film over the years – now made available for the first time on Record Store Day (19th April), as a vinyl 12″ with black foil print jacket and die-cut view of inner sleeve. The collection begins with OPN’s latest composition for Polish Icons at Sacrum Profanum, a Warp staple that’s previously hosted Clark & Aphex Twin. Lopatin interpreted Witold Lutoslawski’s Preludes in ‘Music For Steamed Rocks’ which often appears in the OPN live set.
‘Meet Your Creator’ originally soundtracked the Saatchi & Saatchi viral Quadrotor performance video for their New Director’s Showcase in 2012, the same year Lopatin’s interpretation of ‘I Only Have Eyes For You’ was named Pitchfork Best New Track. The selection was re-engineered by R+7 collaborator Paul Corley and mastered by Bedroom Community’s Valgeir Sigurðsson.
