Fresh off one of the best records of 2013 (R Plus Seven) and one of the most endearing performance art projects of 2014 (live tweeting Billy Corgan’s eight-hour Siddartha-inspired synth jam), Oneohtrix Point Never’s gearing up for a Record Store Day release called Commissions I. Here’s our first taste from it, “Music for Steamed Rocks,” his reinterpretation of Witold Lutoslawski’s 1972 Preludes for a string orchestra. Even if you aren’t familiar with the original, bask in seven and a half minutes of OPN’s gentle manipulation of vocal sounds, droning strings, and other, weirder tones. Check it out.
