Performance + Music
November 7 - 8, 2014
Presented by the Department of Music
American artist and composer Tristan Perich will have a Cornell University residency this November.
Perich's ground-breaking work in various media has been celebrated by critics and presented by major institutions including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Whitney Museum, and Issue Project Room, while '1-Bit Music' and '1-Bit Symphony,' his visionary releases for Canteloupe Records, have creatively reimagined how electronic music can be distributed to listeners. Perich's work often couples one-bit electronics with more traditional elements of visual and sonic art. His work takes inspiration from the aesthetic simplicity of math, physics and code, and WIRE Magazine has described his compositions as "an austere meeting of electronic and organic."
The full schedule is as follows:
