Ken Ikeda - TZUKI (MOON)

Ken Ikeda



Released: 30th October 2000 | 12 track ambient album
Touch is proud to present the first release by Japanese sound artist Ken Ikeda. Having been recently featured in the Hayward Gallery's 'Sonic Boom' exhibition for his collaboration with the Japanese video artist Mariko Mori, tzuki [Moon] is Ken Ikeda's first CD release in his own right... hypnotic sound-fields strangely reminiscent of early Durrutti Column. 'This work has as its purpose taking samples from old movies and, by erecting a memorial for the blanks between frames, communicating with the god of images and attracting that holy being. I will be happy if, by saying a mass for our ancestors, I can reconstruct the time of darkness and the energy of the universe and so reach the far ends of the space between frames. Honouring the place our outer eyes cannot see is most necessary for our present-day materialistic society and for our virtual value standards.' 1964 Born Tokyo 1983-6 Berklee College of Music, Boston 1994 Group exhibition 'Desert of Desires', Spiral Garden, Tokyo Music composition for Tadanori Yokoo exhibition, Park Tower Hall, Tokyo 1995 Video Festival 'West Film', Australia Music composition for CD-ROM 'Angel Love' by Tadanori Yokoo Music composition for Mariko Mori exhibition'Made in Japan', Shiseido Gallery, Tokyo 1996 Music composition for Mariko Mori exhibition, Deitch Projects, New York Music composition for David Lynch exhibition 'Dreams', Parco Gallery, Tokyo 1997 Music composition for Hiroshi Sugimoto's video 'Accelerated Buddha', Sonnabend Gallery, New York Music composition for Mariko Mori exhibition'Mirage', Gallery, Koyanagi, Tokyo Group exhibition '504', Zentrum fur Kunst, Braunschweig, Germany 1999 Solo exhibition 'PICTURES', SCAI THE BATHHOUSE, Tokyo Music composition for Mariko Mori exhibition'Dream Temple', PRADA Foundation, Milan, Italy 6th International Contemporary Art Festival '99, Tokyo 2000 Group exhibition 'Twilight Sleep-Japanese Contemporary Videos at Age of Visual Images', Institute Giapponese di Cultura, Roma, Italy Pusan International Contemporary Art Festival, Pusan, Korea'
