Oneohtrix Point Never presenting multimedia ‘myRiad’ project at Park Avenue Armory

0PN-Armory

Oneohtrix Point Never will be premiering an ambitious, site-specific audio-visual project called ‘myRiad’ at NYC’s Park Avenue Armory on May 22-24:

A project of unprecedented scope, ‘myRiad’ is a hyperstitial “concertscape” imagined from the perspective of an alien intelligence, and builds on a practice of site-specific works presented at the Museum of Modern Art, Tate Britain and MoMA PS1, and Edinburgh International Festival, amongst many others.

Pulling from long-standing fascinations with film and television tropes, abstract sculpture, game ephemera, poetry, apocryphic histories, internet esoterica, and philosophies of being, ‘myRiad’ generates a conceptual spectrum that is as much a speculation on the unthinkable future as it is an allegory for the current disquiet of a civilization out of balance with its environment. Oriented around behaviorally choreographed set pieces and lighting, the theatrical installation takes a directly formal approach to themes latent in his work by placing the audience inside the architecture of the music itself. Using the scale of the Wade Thompson Drill Hall to explore disorienting relationships between space and sound, ‘myRiad’ mutates forms of live musical performance.

‘myRiad’ is presented as “a four-part epochal song cycle” and is part of the 2018 Red Bull Music Festival NYC. Ticket info is still TBA.

0PN won the Soundrack Award at this year’s Cannes film festival for his score for the well-regarded film Good Time, and worked on David Byrne’s still-to-be-announced new album.
