In April the incredible American composer Tristan Perich will perform, in collaboration with James McVinnie, in the Catharinakerk in Eindhoven as part of STRP Festival.
Tristan Perich, a visual artist by origin, has found a way to weave digital forms of composition with acoustic instruments in the most enthralling and magical way. His use of 1-BIT electronics has grown from simple pieces for solo instruments and a single 1-BIT processor to epic pieces like Drift Multiply. In that work he paired 50 solo violinists with 50 individually-composed 1-BIT tracks (relayed via small loudspeakers next to each player) to produce a 100-voice symphony of sound. Infinity Gradient conceived in collaboration with next-generation organist James McVinnie, expands that idea, with a composition for pipe organ and 100 speakers each with its one 1-BIT track. The piece was commissioned by Musica Nova, Strasbourg and designed for cathedrals, large churches with pipe organs.
