Shifting between organic and abstract electronic phases, Active Field is Tristan Perich’s landmark composition for ten violins and ten channel 1-bit electronics. Floating through orchestral, dramatic, lyrical and austere atmospheres, the piece covers his characteristic electronics in a blanket of avant-garde string arrangements that calls to mind classical folk compositions as well as the finest Morricone soundtrack ambience. As part of Tristan Perich’s Rewire 2018 Young Artist in Focus programme, Active Field will be performed by ten violinists of the Royal Conservatoire String Ensemble.
At Rewire 2018, Tristan Perich also presents ‘Surface Image‘ with Vicky Chow, a solo performance of ‘Noise Patterns/1-Bit Solo‘, an exhibition of his ‘Drawing Machines‘ and ‘Listening Stations‘ installations, and an Artist Talk.
