Ikeda’s sound installation in an anechoic chamber is intended to quite physically explode the senses. Using the highest and lowest frequencies that human ears can bear, db is a hyper-dense composition of sine waves, white noise and other elements, which blurs the lines between noise and music, thought and matter. The visual equivalent experienced in the dazzling bright white light chamber one enters after passing through a dark hallway between the two spaces completes the sense-shattering totality.
