Ryoji Ikeda's A [for 100 cars] - RBMA L.A.

The renowned audiovisual artist presents the world’s largest synth orchestra.

As part of Red Bull Music Academy Festival Los Angeles, renowned artist Ryoji Ikeda will present a brand-new composition, in collaboration with 100 automobile owners, that constitutes the world’s largest synth orchestra. The piece, entitled A [for 100 cars] will continue Ikeda’s long-running series investigating the frequencies of note A. Before the world settled on the general tuning standard of A=440Hz, there were historically many different standards. A [for 100 cars], performed by emitting sine waves at all these diverse (yet specific) frequencies, will create an immersive soundscape. RBMA’s Tatsuya Takahashi will work with Ikeda to create a device, especially for this performance, that will help guide the composition from start to finish.

Doors will open at 3:00 PM, and attendees are encouraged to come early to enjoy the impressive installation of 100 cars, vehicles which will be hand-selected for their incredible soundsystems. The performance will begin promptly at 5:30 PM with a final seating at 5:15 PM.
