Ryoji Ikeda's DATA.MATRIX at Wood Street Galleries, September 23 - December 31; live set on Friday.

via artist's official site.

An audiovisual installation by Japanese sound artist Ryoji Ikeda will be on display at the Wood Street Galleries downtown from September 23 through December 31. His official site explains DATA.MATRIX:
matrix is a series of sound installations employing pure sine waves and white noises as a sculptural material. The installations are designed in response to specific gallery spaces or public sites selected by Ikeda. Sine wave are one of the purest forms of sound, white noise contains the full frequency spectrum randomly. As visitors pass through the sound field, subtle oscillation patterns occur around their ears, caused by their own movements interfering with the sounds. It is a very personal experience, and only through the visitors' physical engagement in the sound space can the real character of the work be perceived.
Ikeda will play a live set on September 23 at 10:00 pm at Pierce Studio in the Cultural District (map).

Ikeda's DATA.TRON was at the Wood Street Galleries in 2013. Wood Street Galleries is located at 601 Wood St. (map).
