Notes: dataplex is the first musical composition in the datamatics series, a new body of works by ryoji ikeda that explores the aesthetic potentials of data by using data itself - from its transparency to its materiality, from its ultra-speed to hyper-diffusion. the project derives the hidden constants of data-ness from the vast data ocean that ranges from DNA and the everyday world to the universe and pure mathematics.
The CD contains specific waveform data that performs a data-read test for optical drives. The last track will cause some CD-players to experience playback errors, with no damage to equipment.
