Congruence, composed by Tristan Perich in residence with saxophonist Argeo Ascani, is a new piece for baritone saxophone and 1-bit electronics.

Continuing Perich's explorations in primitive electronic sound, this composition combines the live sound of 1-bit frequencies—synthesized by custom electronic circuits and on-stage speakers—with acoustic saxophone, performed by Argeo Ascani. Congruence represents an evolution of Perich's sound to the gritty lower frequencies, where tone breaks down and the electronics take on a visceral quality, complementing the physical presence of the saxophone's guttoral voice.
