  • Ryoji Ikeda will release his third album for Raster-Noton on November 18th. Supercodex is the final instalment in Ikeda's "datamatics" trilogy for the German avant-garde label, described as "an ongoing exploration of the potential to perceive the invisible multi–substance of data that permeates our world," focusing on the twin themes of how sound is turned into data and how data can be turned into sound. The third album in the trilogy is the most self-referential yet, borrowing and processing sounds from the last two records (2005's Dataplex and 2008's Test Pattern) as well as his other projects and installations. It also contains elements of his new project Superposition, a two-person performance inspired by "quantum information," that he launched last year. The new LP will also form the basis of a Supercodex live set, slated to debut in Tokyo next month. Tracklist 01. Supercodex 01 02. Supercodex 02 03. Supercodex 03 04. Supercodex 04 05.
