Ryoji Ikeda
+/-

My cat’s going nuts right now. Just thought you’d like to know. Just kidding. It’s because I’m listening to this album preview of Ryoji Ikeda’s +/-, which is seeing reissue on the Touch label. The album ends with a piercing high frequency tone that slowly drifts out of the human range of hearing. Well, that’s bullshit, I want to hear the entire album! On headphones or bigger speakers most of Ikeda’s work takes on a strange physical quality, with a vast range of frequencies inhabiting interwoven electronic rhythms. Obviously there are other people out there who like losing their hearing, because this is the fourth reissue of +/-, placing Ikeda one reissue behind Pink Floyd as most reissued artist of all time.
