The sound artist completes his ‘datamatics’ trilogy.

Japanese musician and frequency manipulator Ryoji Ikeda will release his third album for German label Raster-Noton next month, the final instalment in a trilogy that explores the relationship between data and sound and the “invisible multi–substance of data that permeates our world”.

Supercodex is described as the most self-referential album in the series, with sounds from Ikeda’s previous two Raster-Noton records, 2005’s Dataplex and 2008’s Test Pattern, as well as from his other projects and installations, used as raw material for the music. Ikeda will also use the album as the basis of a live set to be performed in Tokyo and then toured internationally.

Supercodex arrives on Raster-Noton on November 18. Hear an excerpt from Ikeda’s collaboration with Raster-Noton boss Carsten Nicolai, ‘Cyclo’, below. [via RA]
