Electronic Beats have showcased an interesting project by composer and visual artist Tristan Perich, who is exploring “the lowest digital representation of electronic music in his piece 1-Bit Symphony, a composition in five movements housed on a microchip inside a CD case.”
It's kind of a cool idea to be able to plug-in your headphones to a CD case to be able to listen to an album. Probably the most immediate and accessible way to access music in a social setting? It also looks pretty cool. In this instance the music is purposefully minimal and lo-fi, but it's giving us ideas of other way to make a music album more tangible too.
