Artist, inventor, and composer Tristan Perich holds degrees in music, math, and computer science. Inspired by the aesthetics of these disciplines, Perich works with simple forms and complex systems to compose works for solo instruments, small ensembles and orchestras. His "1-Bit Music" project, consisting of hand-built electronics packaged inside a standard CD jewel case, probes the foundations of electronic sound. Perich's work has been played by courageous contemporary music ensembles including Bang on a Can, Calder Quartet, counter)induction, New York Miniaturist Ensemble, Due East, Y Trio and Ensemble Pamplemousse at venues including P.S.1 and Mass MoCA.
