Body Music, o. (2016): III. What the low resolution stream of these recordings does not reveal is the beautiful acoustic and spatialisation, of two extraordinary percussionists creating an exquisite interplay of sound and rhythm, hocketing and at times almost phasing in their accuracy and timing. Overall a truly fantastic experience – beautiful concepts and ideas by Ryoji Ikeda powerfully executed with poetic restraint by Eklekto Percussionists: Alexandre Babel, Stéphane Garin, Lucas Genas and Dorian Fretto. I won’t be listening to the stream again, it is a perfect example of how data compression diminishes the true power of music.
