Read a few thoughts about the day as a whole here. Composer Tristan Perich is interested in 1-bit electronics, which he describes as "music that never has more than one bit of information being played at any given time". This has perhaps most famously manifested in his "1-bit Symphony", an electronic composition housed in a CD jewel case. This composition for electronics and three toy pianos came from the same blippy source, filling the square with tinkling toy piano clinks and electronic blurps. (And if that weren't enough, the group followed that with the non-standard mix of melodicas and air mattress pumps.)
