LOCATION: LEAP

Lab for Electronic Arts and Performance (LEAP) is pleased to present a solo exhibition by New York-based artist and composer Tristan Perich. Inspired by the aesthetics of maths and physics, Perich works with simple forms and complex systems. 
For this exhibition, Perich will be exhibiting a body of work that include the sound sculptures Interval Studies and Machine Drawings – the result of a long-standing interest in code and systems. 
Perich’s sound sculptures – Interval Studies – is a formal look at musical intervals as a dense continuum of microtonal pitch, expressed en masse as discrete 1-bit frequencies distributed across hundreds of individual speakers. Each speaker, emitting a single, primitive 1-bit tone, becomes a microscopic voice in the total cluster, substituting individual pitch for larger sonic masses. 
The Machine Drawings – pen on paper or wall drawings executed by a custom-built machine over the course of the exhibition at LEAP, use randomness and order as raw materials within a composition. The machine drawings are a combination of the delicacy of real drawings and the rigid, structured system of mechanics and code.
