Oneohtrix Point Never is the recording name of Brooklyn-based experimental musician Daniel Lopatin, whose album Returnal was released by Editions Mego in June 2010. Lopatin's music is composed and performed primarily on vintage synthesizers, and has been described as drone or ambient music, gentle eddies of sound, and like a cracked mirror refracting the sounds of the past. Lopatin is a first-generation American, the son of immigrants from the former Soviet Union.
Lopatin was chosen by Animal Collective to perform at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival that it curated in May 2011.
Lopatin graduated from Hampshire College, where he worked with Christoph Cox and Daniel Warner, and earned a master’s degree in library and information science from Pratt Institute. Lopatin is also a member of the electronic group Ford & Lopatin with Joel Ford, with whom he also runs the record label Software.
