Released For Record Store Day, “Commissions II” is a sequel of sorts to Daniel Lopatin’s (AKA Oneohtrix Point Never) first collection of commissioned works that dropped a year ago. It features the unremitting “Bullet Hell Abstraction” two-parter, which was initially put together for Red Bull Academy.
The piece is based on the sonic and aesthetic patina of Japanese video games. That composition is backed up by an excerpt from a live score Lopatin produce to soundtrack Koji Morimoto’s anime film “Magnetic Rose” at the Abandon Normal Devices festival. This special release is testament to his enduring creative ethos as an artist. An unique chapter in his output for Warp.
