New York-based sound artist Tristan Perich made news with his "one-bit" electronic music, a form of
digital soundscaping in which each sound can be represented with just one bit of information,
the lowest possible digital representation of audio.
The CD edition of
1-bit Music (Cantaloupe, 2005) was actually not a CD but
an electronic chip playing one-bit music: all the listener had to do was plug
in a headphone.
The result, of course, sounds like very amateurish synth-pop
(Dumb, On The Mayflower)
or classical music
performed on toy keyboards
(the Bach-ian Repeat Her, the galloping Rossini-an aria Fall Front Fast).
Or an alarm clock that wouldn't stop and or a cell phone that keeps ringing.
Just Let Go is perhaps the catchiest "song".
By the same token, his 1-bit Symphony (Cantaloupe, 2010) was an "electronic composition in five movements on a single microchip".
He has also composed:
Interface (2007) for string quartet and one-bit electronics
Active Field (2007) for 10 violins and one-bit electronics
Telescope (2007) for two bass clarinets, two baritone saxophones and one-bit electronics,
All Possible Paths (2008) for clarinet, acoustic guitar, cello, double bass, marimba, piano and one-bit electronics,
Between the Silences (2008) for nine strings and one-bit electronics,
1/4 Revolution (2008) for three violas and one-bit electronics,
Observations (2008) for two sets of crotales and one-bit electronics,
Qsqsqsqsqqqqqqqqq (2009) for three toy pianos and one-bit tones,
Dual Synthesis (2009) for harpsichord and one-bit electronics,
Impermanent (2010) for tubulat bells and one-bit electronics,
Interference Logic (2010) for guitar quartet and one-bit electronics,
He is also a member of Loud Objects with Kunal Gupta and Katie Shima.
