After the concert: Artist Talk with Ryoji Ikeda
Duration: 60 min
This concert featuring acoustic string instruments might also be entitled »Ryoji Ikeda unplugged«. Ikeda came to international renown with his kaleidoscopic sound sculptures, in which electronics and new technologies play key roles. With mathematical precision, he artfully orchestrates sound, images, materials and physical phenomena into performances and installations. With these experiences as a starting point, Ikeda has now accepted the challenge of transferring his working methods to purely acoustic compositions which he is writing especially for Ensemble Modern. The presentation of these works at the Casals Forum in Kronberg, where Ensemble Modern makes its debut, is marked by a radically reduced aesthetic in the spatial implementation of the works. Ikeda creates a ritual experience merging sound, space and stage action.
