Oneohtrix Point Never’s Warp debut, R Plus Seven, features his most forward thinking compositions yet. Drawing from choral work for Saatchi and Doug Aitken’s Hirshhorn installation combined with themes of interactive fiction, OPN recorded RP7 as a kind of choose your own adventure from his past ambient work and new pop pallete.
