    From Daniel Lopatin:

    There's a local soft rock station in Boston called Magic 106.7 so it was a play on that. One and Zero is of course computer binary code... tricks are about manipulation... point never is about infinity...so those are the elements. But here's where it gets annoying... when I spelled it out, it looked like this mystical Japanese hi fi corporation name, and I started pronouncing it "On-eeyo-tricks." That particular iteration stuck with me, but its somewhat contentious because people say it all kinds of different ways and in a democracy, the people should have the final say, right? So I want to go on the record now and say that any way you want to pronounce it is totally legit. I recommend "OPN" because its easy and has an NIN vibe to it.

    This actually might be a helpful thread for proper band pronunciation. I can't tell you how long I was mispronouncing Bon Iver before someone corrected me.
    fuck.

    It's pronounced like the French phrase for 'good winter' - 'bon hiver', i.e. [bon ee- VAIR]

    When I don't know how to pronounce an artist/band's name, I usually YouTube a video of them during an interview or a performance. When they say, "Hello, we are ____." Or "Welcome _____ with their song."

    This is a good idea. There are youtube clips out there simply for pronunciation purposes.
