Ryoji Ikeda
Japan’s leading electronic composer and visual artist, Ryoji Ikeda, focuses on the minutiae of ultrasonics, frequencies and the essential characteristics of sound itself. Fascinated by data, light and sound, he shapes music, time and space by mathematical methods and explores these phenomena as sensation, pulling apart their physical properties to reveal their relationships with human perception.

Ikeda has gained a reputation as one of the few international artists working convincingly across both visual and sonic media. Since 1995, he has been intensively active through concerts, installations, and recordings, integrating sound, acoustics, and subtle imagery. The versatile range of Ikeda’s research is demonstrated by his collaborations with visual artist Carsten Nicolai, choreographer William Forsythe, photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto, and architect Toyo Ito, amongst others. In 2001, Ikeda was awarded the Ars Electronica Golden Nica prize in the digital music category and he was short-listed for a World Technology Award in 2003 and again in 2010.
