1-Bit Symphony: Jewel Case as Orchestra

Tristan Perich is releasing a live performance that creates itself within the confines of a CD jewel case.

Though housed in a CD jewel case like his first circuit album (1-Bit Music 2004-05), 1-Bit Symphony is not a recording in the traditional sense; it literally “performs” its music live when turned on. A complete electronic circuit—programmed by the artist and assembled by hand—plays the music through a headphone jack mounted into the case itself.

Reminds me of of the Loud Objects Noise Toy, albeit in somewhat more elegant packaging¹.  It’s available on pre-order for $29.  Would love a kit or an Instructable to make my own.

Saw this over at notcot.

¹Edit: That’d likely be because Tristan Perich is a member of Loud Objects.  How foolish am I?
