Tristan Perich adopts the principles of math, physics, and computer code for his machine-drawn compositions and sound pieces. On June 16, he is offering fifteen participants a glimpse into the intricacies of his process by leading a workshop on Assembly, a programming language basic to most hardware systems. Participants will learn to program an Amtel microprocessor, a microchip similar to the ones Perich used in his popular piece 1-Bit Symphony.
The workshop will take place at Brooklyn’s Issue Project Room in conjunction with its three-day concert series Philip Glass: Music with Friends. Each night, from June 13 to 16, Glass is performing both solo and with various artists for a small audience.
