Ryoji Ikeda - Test Pattern




“test pattern is a system to convert any kind of data (text, sounds, photos and movies) into barcode patterns and binary patterns of 0s and 1s….”

Commissioned by Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media, “test pattern” is a new Ryoji Ikeda’s audiovisual project, consisting of an installation based on eight computer monitors which flicker with black and white images in a dark room.
Signal patterns are converted using a software into eight barcode patterns and conveyed to 16 loudspeakers.
The aim is to obtain a visitors’ response through perceptions related to a performance test of the devices.
"test pattern" will be also a live performance scheduled for May 9 in Rome (Italy).
This CD on Raster-Noton is part of the project and contains an audio section built on Ikeda conceptual style developed and improved during these years.
It's another product of his interest for using data as source codes to transform them into audible segments.
If you like his minimal electronics made of floating sound particles, fragmented impulses, inconstant signals, of course you will consider this work as a step forward in Ryoji Ikeda’s research.
