It's been praised as "high brow and brilliant" (New York Magazine), "...an intense, hypnotic force and a surprising emotional depth" ( The Wall Street Journal) and "Playful, retro-futurist, digitally based and hopelessly, unapologetically nerdy... a music box for the iPod era" (Time Out New York). And now Tristan Perich's "truly extraordinary" 1-Bit wonder will be available in a store near you.
After selling directly from the Cantaloupe office for the first 6 months of its induction (and selling quite a few at that), 1-Bit Symphony is now being released through classical distributor, Naxos.
"We at Naxos of America have long been interested in expanding the consumption of music through non-traditional means, and bridging the physical-digital divide is a welcome challenge", says National Sales Manager, Sean Hickey. "Tristan Perich's 1-Bit Symphony, an impressive work in its own right, is a perfect piece for what is essentially a new recording medium. Cantaloupe gives us something that's much more than a novelty, but an opportunity for us to expand the discussion that centers on music listening preferences and new forms of consumption. Plus, who doesn't like exposed wires?"
1-Bit Symphony is available March 29 in stores throughout the United States and Canada. Also available through the Bang on a Can Store website.
