Ryoji Ikeda opens Crossing the Line Festival 2017 with his most recent audiovisual concert. Ikeda stands alone on stage surrounded by mammoth projections of mesmerizing black and white digital imagery. With 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.”
