International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music
May 31, 2013, 22:00 - 03:00
○ Ryoichi Kurokawa: 22:30 - 23:15
Japanese artist, Ryoichi Kurokawa produces timeless audiovisual compositions that take on multiple forms, whether video, multi-screen installations, recordings or live performances. Kurokawa approaches image and sound as one entity, rather than separately. He uses what he calls an ‘audiovisual organ’ to compose spatial-time sculptures with analog or digitally generated materials and field recorded sources. His groundbreaking works have been showcased more than once at MUTEK, notably in 2012 as part of CineChamber, presented by Recombinant Media Labs. In 2010, he was awarded the Golden Nica at Prix Ars Electronica in the Digital Music and Sound Art category.
