MUTEK Collaboration Night

Ryoichi Kurokawa u.a.

HYBRID Biennale Musik 2022/23

Japanese artist Ryoichi Kurokawa is a master of translating analogue representations into digital streams, dizzying images and emotions. The extraordinary precision of his sensitively synchronised fragmentary images is central to his work.

Duration: 5 hrs.

Japanese artist Ryoichi Kurokawa is a true poet of the transformative cinema, lyrically transfiguring the analogue representations of perceived nature into digital streams of vertiginous imagery & emotion. The architecturally crafted precision of his sensitively synched fragmentary images placed side by side on our retina, tends to displace the persistence of blurred memory under the effect of boundless luminosity. Audio and visual concordance are key in Kurokawa’s works. He considers both the audio and visual element as different vectors of a unique piece and insists that they have to flow together to enter a collision at the same time.
