Description

Pioneering Japanese electronic composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda performs datamatics live in a double bill with the Australian premiere of Shiro by visual art and musical duo NONOTAK.

datamatics takes the seemingly mundane – data – and uses it as a source for breathtaking sounds and visuals. From sequences of patterns derived from hard drive errors, the imagery transforms into dramatic rotating views of the universe in 3D. The hypnotic soundtrack mirrors the imagery, meshing bleeps, crescendos and bass into a kaleidoscopic soundscape.

Shiro is the ethereal, immersive audiovisual performance by NONOTAK, collaborative project of illustrator Noemi Schipfer and architect and musician Takami Nakamoto. Their work with light and sound installations and performance pieces create dreamlike environments that are built to envelope the viewer and distort reality, and with Shiro this process reaches transcendent states of illumination and sound.

Ryoji Ikeda – datamatics and NONOTAK – Shiro is part of the SUBSONIC program curated for Asia TOPA by The SUBSTATION.
