C4I + Datamatics Double bill
Fri 13 Oct 7.30pm
Opening a weekend of contemporary music at Arnolfini, Ryoji Ikeda, who wowed audiences at this years Inbetween Time festival, makes a welcome return.
C4I highlights the ways in which data can shape our understanding of the world. Filmed footage is fused with digital graphics and accompanied by a soundtrack mixed live by the artist. C4I reveals sublime views of reality that are simultaneously beautiful, poetic and political.
datamatics is an overwhelming audio-visual performance. Projecting dynamic, computer-generated imagery, Ikedas intense yet minimal graphic renderings of data progress through multiple dimensions. A powerful soundtrack produces immense and apparently boundless acoustic spaces.
