Red Bull Music Festival NYC - Tristan Perich: Drift Multiply

  • St. John Divine Chapel 1047 Amsterdam Avenue New York, NY, 10025 United States (map)

As part of Red Bull Music Festival New York, renowned modern classical composer and sound artist Tristan Perich will premiere his most ambitious project yet: A piece for 50 violins and 50 self-built 1-bit speakers. Perich investigates the spaces where the physical world meets the abstract world of computational electronics, writing intricate arrangements that blend lo-fi 1-bit sound – the lowest possible digital representation of audio – with cascading melodies performed by classically trained musicians. Also performing will be Lesley Flanigan, the experimental electronic musician known for her work with handmade speaker feedback instruments and voice. Flanigan takes a sculptural approach to sound design, and will present a new project for subwoofers and solo voice.

Tristan Perich: Drift Multiply was commissioned by ISSUE Project Room, made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Age Requirement: all ages
Ticket Price: $20
