Is that rare thing: a simple yet resonant idea, beautifully executed. ‘1-Bit Symphony’ is also an electronic composition in five movements on a single microchip. Although the sound is housed in a CD case, this isn’t a recording in the traditional sense as ‘1-Bit Symphony’ literally ‘performs’ the music live when you turn it on. A complete electronic circuit (programmed by Perich Himself and assembled manually) plays the symphony through a headphone jack mounted into the case itself.

If you happen to share our weakness for noisy chiptune raves, this should be right up your alley. In any case, you’d be well-advised to give this next-level low-tech sound concept an in-depth listen.
