Using electric impulses and digital tones, Ultra-Minimalism is one of the latest phases of Minimalist music and is characterised by the most extreme economy of elements, tonalities and rhythm.

This evening of performances combines live electronic music with large-scale projections of computer-generated graphics.

Each of the three artists in the programme performs a 30-minute piece.

Ryoji Ikeda performs a new work, datamatics [prototype], which has been co-commissioned by AV Festival 06 and ZeroOne San Jose and ISEA 2006 Symposium. This piece was first performed as part of the AV Festival in Newcastle, March 2006.

alva-noto (Carsten Nicolai) performs the UK premiere of a new work, entitled xerrox.

Robert Henke (aka Monolake) presents the latest development in an ongoing series of works ? previously realised in both concert and installation versions ? entitled Atlantic Waves, an improvisational audiovisual performance in collaboration with Torsten "T++" Pröfrock who performs remotely from Germany.

Ryoji Ikeda and alva noto performances are produced by forma. datamatics is funded by Arts Council England and the Japan Foundation through the Performing Arts JAPAN programme.
