Ryoji Ikeda opens Crossing the Line 2017 with his most recent audiovisual concert at the Met Museum. Ikeda stands alone on stage surrounded by mammoth projections of mesmerizing black and white digital imagery. Using raw data and mathematical models, he masterfully mines information for rhythmic beats. The result is a beeping, pulsating, immersive mix of sound and multimedia art that dazzles the senses and explores the nuances between, in his words, "data of sound" and "sound of data.”

Ryoji Ikeda is a renowned visual artist and one of the world’s leading electronic music composers. His work is known for its achingly beautiful minimalism, ultra-spare beats, and mesmerizing audiovisual installations, and is as astonishing to encounter in a night club as it is in a museum. Ikeda uses mathematical principles and aesthetics to explore the characteristics of sound and light with precision and rigor. He has performed and exhibited worldwide at venues including Centre Pompidou (Paris), Sonar Festival (Barcelona), Tate Modern (London), Festival d’Automne (Paris), and Park Ave Armory (New York). Ikeda made his US debut at the Crossing the Line Festival in 2010, and last appeared at the festival in 2014, when he performed superposition at The Met.
