Taking the shape of an audiovisual concert, supercodex [live set] uses raw data and mathematical models to generate music and projections. A continuation of superposition (2012) which focuses on quantum information, the concert reworks musical concepts from this work into an immersive club show.
What at first sounds like a battle of digital noise, blips and bass drones, gradually engages the listener with elements of techno and dance music, Live, the use of stark visuals add textures of percussion making it difficult to distinguish between the senses. Ikeda uses 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.
“Orchestrating sound, images, materials, physical phenomenons, and mathematical notions, Ikeda is able to create fascinating live performances and art installations.” Nero Magazine
Ryoji Ikeda (1966, Gibu, Japan) is a leading composer and visual artists. He lives and works in Paris, France and Kyoto, Japan.
Support from Graham Dunning
Graham Dunning [b. 1981] is self-taught as an artist and musician, having studied neither discipline academically. His live work explores sound as texture, timbre and something tactile, drawing on bedroom production, tinkering and recycling found objects. He also creates visual work, video and installations drawing on these themes.
Graham has performed solo and in ensembles across the UK, Europe and Canada, and exhibited in the UK, Europe, New Zealand and USA. He teaches Experimental Sound Art at the Mary Ward Centre in London and also gives various independent workshops. He has released through Entr’acte, Seagrave, Tombed Visions and more.
