ryoji ikeda_test pattern in dusted magazine year end list.
Dusted’s Jake O’Connell picks apart 2008 like it’s the Bills’ prevent defense.
Once again testing the limits of fidelity, Ikeda transformed text, film and images into barcodes, then manipulated the resulting patterns so listeners could “hear” raw data. Producing a near clinical acuity, terse microtonal fissures and incalculable BPMs pound like primitive techno in headphones. Some tracks even appear to outsmart the code, mutating into a sort of glitch improv. When the shards of digital vapor flare from the final enfolding compression, it gets me every time.
