Commissions IIArtist: Oneohtrix Point Never
Inspired by the video game soundtracks of celebrated Japanese artist Manabu Namiki, Lopatin’s arrangement “Bullet Hell Abstraction” deconstructs both the sonic and visual aesthetic of Japanese video games. Commissions II includes selections that he recorded for the performance, which was commissioned by Redbull Music Academy and originally premiered at Womb, Tokyo (November 2014). With affection for the original piece, Lopatin composed and performed live a reimagined soundtrack to Koji Morimoto's historic anime film Magnetic Rose. In collaboration with Lopatin, Robert Beatty produced the cover artwork layout, and the packaging features TBC (black foil print jacket) with die cut view of inner sleeve.
