Event Information

The Kitchen presents two evenings of compositions by Tristan Perich, including a number of premieres. Inspired by the aesthetic simplicity of math, physics and code, Perich’s compositions have been described by The Wire magazine as “an austere meeting of electronic and organic.” 1-Bit Music, his 2004 release, was the first album ever released as a microchip, programmed to synthesize his electronic composition live.

So Percussion and JACK Quartet premiere a major revision of Perich’s Sequential, for string quartet and percussion quartet. The work employs his 1-bit electronics to superimpose a rhythmic gating system on eight players, transforming their bowed instruments into a precise, angular tapestry of timbre. Mariel Roberts opens the concert with Perich’s Formations for solo cello and 1-bit electronics, which New Sounds called “driving, hypnotic, and exhilarating.”


This event is supported by a grant from New Music USA.

Participants: So Percussion
