Real Name:
Daniel Lopatin
Main recording alias of Brooklyn-based experimental musician, composer and producer Daniel Lopatin.

Oneohtrix Point Never released his debut album on cassette in 2007. Next two years (especially 2009) were productive for Oneohtrix, with tapes and LPs released on Arbor, No Fun Productions, NNA Tapes and similar labels, including his own Software Records (Mexican Summer sub-label, operated by Lopatin). First three albums formed a 'trilogy', later reissued with other rare tracks as 2xCD Rifts compilation.

In 2010 OPN released his ‘major’ debut – Returnal at Editions Mego, popular amongst critics and listeners, and later included in Pitchfork Media's "The Top 50 Albums of 2010". In 2013 Oneohtrix Point Never signed contract with Warp Records.

Oneohtrix created multimedia performance together with Nate Boyce for MoMA in 2011, re-imagining museum’s modernist sculptures collection, and also he composed music for a troupe of 16 flying quadcopters to dance to and manipulate sound and light at the Saacthi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase in 2012. Until recently, Lopatin used a lot of analog gear most notably Roland Juno-60 synthesizer.
