This show we focus completely on the work of New York based composer Tristan Perich.
Tristan Perich’s work is inspired by the aesthetic simplicity of math, physics and code – “an austere meeting of electronic and organic”. ‘1-Bit Music’, his 2004 release, was the first album ever released as a microchip, programmed to synthesize his electronic composition live. His second circuit album, ‘1-Bit Symphony’ has received critical acclaim. His award winning work coupling 1-bit electronics with traditional forms in both music and visual art has been presented around the world, from Sonar and Ars Electronica to the Whitney Museum and bitforms gallery.
‘Noise Patterns’ digs into the primitive particles of digital 1-bit audio that has become Perich’s signature sound. As with his previous circuit albums, ‘Noise Patterns’ is not released as a CD or record. Noise Patterns comes as a minimalist matte-black circuit board with a headphone jack in the side. The 6-track album explores how digital noise can be shaped and stressed, from glittering static into the mesmerizing electronic thump of a nightclub. www.tristanperich.com
