Ryoji Ikeda - 1000 Fragments

I uploaded this album in the shoutbox of another blog for some people, so I figured I would post it here too. Every sound Ryoji Ikeda has created throughout his carrer has been incredibly interesting to me. The first half of this album contains pieces of his early work, and the second half could be considered the actual album. His work with sine waves and sound oscillation is only appreciated by the trained listener, but should be heard by all. This album perfectly replicates what it may sound like if you were to travel into space without a suit, hearing nothing besides your beating heart and the ringing in your ears. If space is out of the question for you, I suggest turning off the lights, putting on some headphones, and listening to this significant experiment in sound.
