About this Piece
The majestic mechanics of Tristan Perich (b. 1962) makes for the third action of this tripled quartet. A premiere, a finale, a look into the future from [a young composer]. The liveliest of human sounds couples with the algorithms of our machines, the squelch of data and the heat of life sonically mingle so that one cannot be separated from the other.
