Live Stage: Lampo Season Begins [us Chicago, IL]

909102149-2.jpgThe Lampo fall season begins :: Saturday, Oct 16, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. :: with Tristan Perich :: at the Graham Foundation, Madlener House, 4 West Burton Place, Chicago, IL :: Admission is free but reservations are required :: RSVP here ::

Lampo and the Graham Foundation are very happy to bring you Tristan Perich and his “1-Bit Symphony” with 1-bit video. His new five movement work was just released. The press is agog and Grampo too.

1-bit is lo-fi and low-res. Binary electrical pulses — that is, on/off switches — synthesized by code, are routed by microchip to speaker or cathode ray television to create sound or light.
Tristan will show you what can be done with simple forms and complex systems.

Trained in mathematics and piano, Tristan 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” (2004-2005) 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 Turbulence, Bang on a Can and Rhizome, and performed and exhibited throughout the U.S. and abroad. Perich graduated from Columbia University, and received a master’s degree in art, music and electronics at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.

Co-presented with the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts
