A contemporary composer and sound artist from New York City, Tristan Perich’s work often focuses on the use of one-bit sound to create digital micro-symphonies that can incorporate numerous media to influence the eye as strongly as they permeate the ear. Inspired by the aesthetics of math and physics, Perich works with simple forms and complex systems to challenge the elegance of acoustic and electronic music in both physical and digital art.
His works for soloist, ensemble and orchestra have been performed internationally by ensembles including Bang on a Can, Calder Quartet and Meehan/Perkins at venues from the Whitney Museum to Lentos in Austria. In 2009, he received the Prix Ars Electronica. In 2010, he was a featured artist at Sonar in Barcelona, and Rhizome awarded him a 2010 commission for a microtonal audio installation with 1,500 speakers.
