Ryoji Ikeda

Internationaly renowned electronic music composer and light-and-sound-installation Ryoji Ikeda, will be performing at the Theatre at Ace Hotel this December. The Japanese composer, based in paris, is celebrated as one of the few artists working convincingly across both visual and sonic media and as a leading figure among the new crop of computer-based musicians. Ikeda is known for his moving-image, sculptural sound and new media works that explore the intersection between music and visual art through mathematical aesthetics.

His work has been performed and exhibited worldwide at art and music venues and festivals throughout Asia, Europe and the Americas and he has collaborated with such artists as choreographer William Forsythe, Japanese art collective Dumb Type, architect Toyo Ito and photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto.

The performance this month supported by CAP UCLA will bring three of Ikeda’s concert works together into one program. The program will include formula, C4/, and datamatics. Each piece uses images and lighting to show the audience a clean synchronization between the sound frequencies of Ikeda’s music and the movements on the screen. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind concert experience!
