EMPAC Studio 1 – Goodman
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY
$18 general admission; $13 non-Rensselaer students, seniors, and Rensselaer faculty + staff; and $6 Rensselaer students

Ryoichi Kurokawa's audiovisual work syn_ obscures familiar everyday imagery with vibrating, impossibly detailed geometric constellations. Performed live on dual projection screens, his visuals are accompanied with clouds of sound that pulse in accord to construct a sensory experience of overwhelming energy.
Japanese artist Ryoichi Kurokawa's works take multiple forms, including installations, recordings, and concert pieces. His audiovisual compositions bring visual and sonic materials together using a completely revolutionary perspective. His works have been shown at international festivals and museums including the Tate Modern (London), Venice Biennale, Transmediale (Berlin), and Sonar (Barcelona). In 2010, he was awarded the Golden Nica at Prix Ars Electronica in the Digital Music and Sound Art category. He lives and works in Berlin.
