Artist Tristan Perich’s 1-Bit Symphony is an electronic composition that is played on a single microchip embedded inside a CD jewel case. The setup uses an electronic circuit that is programmed and assembled inside a clear case with a headphone jack built-in for listening. The music is played by the micro chips through the headphone jack and performs its music live once a listener plugs in the headphones.

Here’s a video overview of the device:
