  • Described as Japan’s leading electronic music composer and visual artist, Ryoji Ikeda will perform Supercodex [live set], a powerful audio-visual concert, using raw data and mathematical models to generate music and projections. What at first sounds like a battle of digital noise (blips and bass drones) gradually coalesces from a minimalist soundscape, engaging the listener with elements of techno and dance music, along with stark visual projections, to form an immersive spectacle. Ikeda has described this as using different and continuous fragments to construct one flux; creating a union between visual and auditory dimensions which reveals, between codes and calculations, a beating heart as well as the arithmetical and computational essence of sound.
