An old friend from New York made Alex Ross's blog today for his cool piece, 1-bit symphony:
The technology behind Tristan Perich's 1-Bit Symphony is fascinating; more important, the music is fairly electrifying. It reminds me of Terry Riley's rough, ecstatic music of the late nineteen-sixties, in the Rainbow in Curved Air period. It's not for every taste, but what music is? The final movement is infinite; when you're ready to move on, you switch the gizmo off.
