Ryo is a UK-based Japanese artist. His works range from live audiovisual performances, interactive installations, data visualization and sonification and generative art to group improvisation and scored compositions. He has presented his works internationally at media art and music festivals as well as at academic conferences. He is featured in the Electronic Music volume of the Cambridge Introductions to Music series and his works have been published by Sedition. He curates exhibitions, screenings, and a series of events called A-B-A featuring performances, talks, and discussions. His articles have been published in journals such as Organised Sound and he also works as a visiting lecturer. Originally trained as a classical musician, he then branched out into electronic music and other disciplines. The meeting of these two worlds informs his practice, which explores computational aesthetics that extend beyond the imitation of human creativity and existing art forms.
