Oneohtrix Point Never is the recording name of Brooklyn-based experimental musician Daniel Lopatin. Lopatin's music has been described as "gentle eddies of sound", and "like a cracked mirror refracting the sounds of the past". Lopatin is a first-generation American, the son of Jewish immigrants from the former Soviet Union. Lopatin's 2010 album Returnal, released by Editions Mego, was placed at number 20 on Pitchfork Media's "The Top 50 Albums of 2010" list. Lopatin was chosen by Animal Collective to perform at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival that it curated in May 2011.
