Ryoji Ikeda is one of Japan’s most celebrated electronic composers. Since 1995 he has been making work that investigates the characteristics of sound, exploring frequencies and the fundamentals of data. He has collaborated with a diverse range of practitioners including the choreographer William Forsythe and the Frankfurt Ballet and the artist Hiroshi Sugimoto. Ikeda has presented his work internationally, including at the Pompidou Centre, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Nam June Paik Centre, Seoul.
