Oneohtrix Point Never Reformulates “I Only Have Eyes For You”
Listen to his rendition of the classic for visual artist Doug Aitken's 'SONG ' project
Oneohtrix Point Never is one of the musicians invited to participate in the “ Happening” of the “ SONG 1” project by American visual artist Doug Aitken. The installation revolves around the re-contextualisation of pop standard “ I Only Have Eyes For You”, which will be performed live by artists such as Nicolas Jaar, No Age, High Places and Tim McAfee-Lewis. The event will take place today at the Hirschorn Museum in Washington DC. As an appetiser, Daniel Lopatin shared his version yesterday. Focusing on alien-like vocal snippets and a sweetly dark background, the song changes the nature of the original while maintaining all of its magic.
