Born in 1966 in Gifu, Ikeda currently lives and works in Paris and Kyoto.
While rooted in electronic music, the internationally active composer and artist also produces art as experimentation.
Ikeda's immersive live performances and installations employ an elaborate orchestration of sound, visuals, matter, physical phenomena, and mathematical concepts.
He established his online source as codex | edition.
In 2022, Hirosaki Museum of Contemporary Art presented his first major solo exhibition in Japan since 2009.
Ikeda has received the Prix Ars Electronica Collide@CERN in 2014, and the 70th Japanese Minister of Education Award for Fine Arts (Media Arts Division) in 2020.
