Lampo Performance Series - Tristan Perich
Saturday, October 16, 2010 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM (CDT)
On Saturday, October 16, musician and visual artist Tristan Perich will present his 1-Bit Symphony, a five-movement work that uses binary electrical pulses to create sound and light.
Trained in mathematics and piano, Perich (b. 1982, New York) works in acoustic and electronic music. Best known for his constructions that explore the physicality of sound and the polyphonic potential of 1-bit audio, his “1-Bit Music” (2004-05) and “1-Bit Symphony” (2010) celebrate the virtuosity of electricity. Neither release is a traditional recording. Instead, each is a music-generating circuit, housed in a CD jewel case with a headphone jack. Perich also has composed several works for musicians with 1-bit music accompaniment, and is in the music group the Loud Objects (with Kunal Gupta and Katie Shima), which performs by soldering its own noise-making circuits live in front of the audience.
As a visual artist, his projects include “Machine Drawings,” pen-on-paper drawings executed by machine, and 1-bit video, low-resolution black and white images synthesized by microchips and displayed on cathode ray televisions.
His work has been recognized
by Prix Ars Electronica, commissioned by Rhizome, Bang on a Can and
turbulence.org, and performed and exhibited throughout the U.S. and abroad.
Perich graduated from Columbia University, and more recently received a
master’s degree in art, music and electronics at the Interactive
Telecommunications Program at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.
