Oneohtrix Point Never: Myriad

+ CURL

Artwork for Oneohtrix Point Never's Myriad

Musician, composer and Mercury Prize nominated-producer Oneohtrix Point Never presents MYRIAD, a ‘concertscape’ featuring his first full live touring ensemble.

Examining disorienting forms at the intersection of theatre, installation art and musical performance, and imagined from the perspective of an alien intelligence, MYRIAD explores film and television tropes, abstract sculpture, game ephemera, poetry, apocryphal histories, internet esoterica, and philosophies of being. It looks towards the possibilities of the future whilst considering the conflict between today’s civilisation and the environment.
 
MYRIAD premiered at the Park Avenue Armory, New York, and is informed by Oneohtrix Point Never’s site-specific commissions at the Museum of Modern Art, Tate Britain, MoMA PS1, and Edinburgh International Festival. His album Age Of is out now.

CURL is a collective in London that features Mica Levi, Coby Sey, Brother May and more. curlrecordings.bandcamp.com
