Ryoji Ikeda to perform a unique composition this weekend at Christian Marclay’s White Cube show





Japan’s leading electronic composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda will present a one-off live performance on Saturday 11 April.

The final weekend of performances in a unique ten week programme curated by Christian Marclay, culminates in a new work performed by revered composer Ryoji Ikeda. Accompanied by musicians from the London Sinfonietta, Ikeda will present a special live performance exploring the sonorities of glass, created in response to one of the key works within Marclay’s White Cube exhibition. The composition will be record direct-to-disc and pressed to vinyl on site by The VF Press, our mobile vinyl pressing plant.

Later this month The Vinyl Factory will collaborate with Ikeda once more; this time to present the UK premiere of supersymmetry, a major new work that explores music and visual art through mathematics and physics. Taking place at Brewer Street Car Park from 23 April – 31 May, click here for more information about the exhibition.
