Tristan Perich's 1-Bit Symphony is an electronic composition, in five movements, on a single microchip.
Though housed in a CD jewel case, 1-Bit Symphony is not a recording in the traditional sense; it literally "performs" its music live when turned on.
A complete electronic circuit—programmed by the artist—plays the music through a headphone jack mounted into the case itself.
The project is set to be released on Cantaloupe Music on August 24, 2010.
Pricing and Availability
1-Bit Symphony will be available August 24, 2010 for US $29.
