Oneohtrix Point Never received the prestigious Cannes Soundtrack Award at this year‰۪s 70th anniversary edition of the festival for his visceral original score for ‰ÛÜGood Time‰ÛÜ. The artist was in competition with the likes of Jonny Greenwood, Jed Kurzel and Ibrahim Maalouf and took home the celebrated prize. Previous winners include Cliff Martinez for ‰ÛÜThe Neon Demon‰ÛÜ (2016), Lim Giong foråÊThe Assassin‰ÛÜ (2015) and Howard Shore for ‰ÛÜMap to the Stars‰ÛÜåÊ(2014). An original song by Oneohtrix Point Never composed for the closing theme of the film,åÊThe Pure and the DamnedåÊfeatures a guest vocal and lyrics written by Iggy Pop. ‰ÛÜIggy‰۪s voice is rich with uncomparable weight and wisdom on this stunning closer. Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never and the Safdie brothers became close collaborators through a shared love of cult genre movies and music, and their level of collaboration here has a rare depth of symbiosis of picture and score. Mundane events become dramatic, montages become mini operas. With the soundtrack to ‰ÛÜGood Time, ‰ÛÜOneohtrix Point Never has created a genuine listening experience rivalling the very best of his landmark studio albums. ‰ÛÜIt also holds some of his most striking and complete individual moments; in addition toåÊThe Pure and the DamnedåÊLeaving The ParkåÊtakes the classic arpeggio-laced crime scores of the 1970s and lends it the unique ‰ÛÜOneohtrix Point Never stranger-beauty. Throughout the soundtrack, d‰ÛÜiegetic audio is interspersed and mutated in a natural foundation of ‰ÛÜGarden of Delete‰ÛÜ meets ‰ÛÜRifts-‰ÛÜera Oneohtrix Point Never sound palettes.
