Tim Hecker & Daniel Lopatin - 'Instrumental Tourist' cover art
Two stellar ambient artists, Tim Hecker and relative newcomer Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never), will team up for a collaborative album titled Instrumental Tourist, which is due out on November 20 via Daniel Lopatin and Joel Ford's Software label. The first taste of the album comes from the opening track, "Uptown Psychedelia," which is already hinting at great things to come from this collaboration. You can stream that track and check out the album's tracklist below. That's the cover art above.
Daniel Lopatin is also teaming up with Nate Boyce for a live performance in NYC at avant-garde non-profit performance space The Kitchen on October 5 for the venue's new Synth Nights electronic concert series. That series also includes a performance on October 6 with Musica Elettronica Viva (including original members Alvin Curran, Frederic Rzewski, and Richard Tietelbaum). Tickets for both of those shows are on sale now.
A list of all Oneohtrix Point Never dates, that song stream, and Tim Hecker/Daniel Lopatin album tracklist are below.

Oneohtrix Point Never w/ A Far Cry at World Financial Center - 7/14/12
Oneohtrix Point Never (aka Daniel Lopatin), who also played Pitchfork fest over the weekend, and Bang on a Can composer David Lang played the second installment of the Ecstatic Summer concert series at the World Financial Center on Saturday (7/14).
"The composers were Daniel Lopatin, who produces electronic works under the name Oneohtrix Point Never; William Brittelle, whose works are vibrant amalgams of jazz, rock and postmodern chamber music; and David Lang, part of the Bang on a Can triumvirate, whose music ranges widely but most often combines strains of Minimalism and Neo-Romanticism.In the way that these 'Ecstatic' events go, Oneohtrix Point Never played a partial set of solo material and was then joined by string ensemble A Far Cry Orchestra to perform newly arranged renditions of his work with arrangements by Brittelle.
Mr. Lang, the oldest and most firmly established of the three (he won a Pulitzer Prize in 2008), had top billing, but in a way this was Mr. Lopatin's show." [NY Times]
Ecstatic Summer continues and ends at the World Financial Center on August 25 with Escort and Darcy James Argue's Secret Society. The first show in the seires featured Tune-Yards.
Oneohtrix Point Never's next scheduled NYC show is the 'Yo Eskerikk Asko NYC!' festival, which goes down at Public Assembly from August 24 - 25 with Glenn Brenca, Tim Hecker, Colin L. Orchestra, White Suns, and more.
