Boomkat Product Review
One of OPN's noisiest contributions is the 'Hollyr' release, originally issued on Sound Holes in 2008 on a c20 cassette. The release features some of the rawest and most abstract arrangements from Daniel Lopatin, opening with the kaleidoscopic swirl of serrated sinewaves on 'For You To Operate', while the centrepiece of 'Polygon Sexual Fantasy' unfolds nearly 10 minutes of molten chromatic synth tones spurting hypercoloured pink noise. Closer 'Plastic Season' is a really quite unlike anything else we've heard in his catalogue, combining Lynchian reversed speech samples with psychotropic field recordings of offworld tribal rituals. This is nutty, in the best possible sense.
