Holly Herndon at MoMA PS1 in 2012 (more by Robert Altman)
Holly Herndon

On November 4, Le Poisson Rouge is teaming up with Wordless Music to present a pretty cool bill that should appeal to fans of indie/classical crossover. The show will be headlined by vocal octet Roomful of Teeth (who have worked with tUnE-yArDs), who will be performing the world premiere of Caroline Shaw's "Partita," in addition to works by Caleb Burhans, Brad Wells, and William Brittelle. Opening the show will be experimental musician Holly Herndon, whose newest album, Movement, was released last year via RNG Intl. Tickets for the LPR show are on sale now.

Holly is also taking part in Ecstatic Summer 2013, which happens at Brookfield Place Plaza on Saturday (6/29) and Sunday (6/30) as part of the River to River Festival. There will be premiere compositions from Holly, Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Reggie Pace (Bon Iver), Dave Douglas, Susie Ibarra, Seth Olinsky (Akron/Family), People Get Ready, and Son Lux. The pieces will be performed by members of The National, yMusic, Plastic Ono Band, and more. Like all RIver to River events, this one is free and open to the public. 5 PM start. Check out the full list of compositions being premiered, below.

In related news, Wordless Music is also presenting the previously discussed Oneohtrix Point Never show happening in NYC on September 17 at Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Cathedral (113 Remsen St). OPN is releasing his new album, R Plus Seven, on September 30 via Warp, and he recently revealed an excerpt of a new song, "Still Life." You can listen to that below.

Hey, sorry it's taken me so long to email you back, I've been busy. I haven't been up to much. I'm performing at the MoMA PS1 right now, I think it's going pretty well.

This really is fucking sad. Remember the music this website covered even like five years ago? Now it's just people looking bored staring at computers, which exactly what I become when I read about this shit.

Where are the fucking rock bands? Am I the only person left in the room who still wants to hear loud drums???

I'm with 10:38.

I also laughed boisterously at most of these comments.

Track is good, very good, the video is just…tap to the eye, indigestion of cut scenes, zooms cut, technical mayhem, not a chance for the supposed beauty to have completed its movement. No issue. Trendy, tasteless advertising. The only good idea is the clap.

I'm sure Lopatin put effort into making this. I don't believe he was throwing a collage of nonsense together and trying to impress anyone. The stuff he makes is relevant to his own subjective reality. The more obscure it becomes, the less likely people are to relate. For me, personally, the eccentricities of his art evoke a feeling for me that I am sure is very subjective and not the same as anyone else, including the artist. To say something like this is not art is simply not understanding the concept of art. If it doesn't do anything for you, I don't think any OPN fans or OPN would be surprised. Art snobs force too many rules on the world of art based on their perception of what works for them. Opinions are great but, in the most respectful way possible, be humble enough to understand that you might not understand.
