Mathemusician Plays Spaces

When: Sat., April 30 2011

Spaces opens its laboratory tonight to the mad experiments of "mathemusician" Tristan Perich. The graduate of Columbia University's math, music, and computer science programs first made waves in 2006 with his 1-Bit Music project: an album created by a mini-processor running composing software for music you'd swear came from a human brain. It's heavy to think about but sublime to hear, full of what The Wall Street Journal called "intense, hypnotic force and a surprising emotional depth." Tonight at 6 p.m., Perich will perform his music for keyboards, percussion, and electronics in a free concert. On view, too, will be his artwork, which also employs 1-bit technology to generate images. Additional human accompaniment for tonight's performance will be provided by Oberlin Conservatory students Daniel Walden and Ryan Packard. It's all happening at Spaces, 2220 Superior Viaduct.
