Tristan Perich’s 1-Bit Symphony
One of the great things about the music industry right now is that there is no shortage of specialty packages being produced in small quantities and in high quality. Dave just pointed me to a great example.
Here we have what sounds like great music housed in a package that perfectly fits the music from Tristan Perich.

Perich, who studied music, math, and computer science at Columbia University, sees the project as twofold. “It’s half super, super formal based on these mathematical ideas and theories of computation,” he says, skipping the numbers lesson for the moment. “At the same time, it’s sort of a social commentary about distribution, music stores, and creating something physical again that people can consume as an object and not just this ephemeral digital download.”
