1-Bit Symphony is exactly what the title of this post says. It comes on a CD jewel case and is very, very minimalist.
No it’s not a CD. It’s a microchip that’s embedded on a CD-sized jewel case. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack that sits at the edge of the case. All you need to do is plug in your headphones, turn on the recordingand listen!
It’s not so much as a recording as a pre-programmed algorithm embedded in the chip that presents the music liveto your ears. Chiptunes at their finest. Tristan Perich’s experimental gadget/music-player is something that can only be experienced. Pre-order it from Cantaloupe Music for $29!
