dataphonics is part of Ryoji Ikeda's datamatics project, a series of experiments that explore such questions both physically and mathematically. Visitors experience the vast universe of data in the infinite between 0 and 1.
dataphonics is a music project focused on the relationship between the sound of data and data of sound. It crosses various formats; multi-channel sound performance, radio programmes and audio/data research etc. A version of the project was broadcast monthly on Radio France over ten months from October 2006.
Ryoji Ikeda is a Japanese sound and visual artist living and working in Paris, France and Kyoto, Japan. Ikeda has gained an international reputation as one of the few artists working convincingly across both visual and sonic media. He elaborately orchestras sound, visuals, materials, physical phenomena and mathematical notions into immersive live performances and installations. Alongside musical activity, Ikeda has been working on long-term projects through live performances, installations, books and CD’s such as datamatics (2006-), test pattern (2008-), spectra (2001-), cyclo (a collaborative project with Carsten Nicolai), superposition (2012-), supersymmetry (2014-) and micro | macro (2015-). Ryoji Ikeda is represented by Almine Rech Gallery.
