Music For Steamed Rocks

New OPN announced pretty recently, as part of a new EP coming out of his called 'Commissions I' coming your way on record store day. Listened to it a couple of times and I gotta say I'm digging it. The swooping synths are a far cry from his Juno-60 arpeggios of Rifts but I am loving the new direction as of R Plus Seven with those little bits of noise poking through every now and then to unnerve you a bit. Not for everyone sure, but if you're into ambient at all, this here is good listening.

Tracklist of Commissions I is:
A1 - Music For Steamed Rocks
Composed by Daniel Lopatin for Witold Lutosławski's Preludes at Polish Icons 2, Sacrum Profanum, 2013

A2 - Meet Your Creator
Composed by Daniel Lopatin for Quadrotor performance at Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors' Showcase, 2012

B1 - I Only Have Eyes For You
Composed by Harry Warren and Al Dubin (Remick Music Corp). Cover commissioned for the SONG1 Happening installation event by Doug Aitken at the Hirshhorn Museum, 2012
