Triboro Sound is an exhilarating multi-media collaboration that could only emerge from the unique boroughs of New York City. Fusing live original music with innovative contemporary dance and stunning widescreen digital graphics, Triboro Sound is the brainchild of some of New York’s most exciting contemporary artists.

The collaboration comprises a typical New York cross-section; participants originate from every conceivable corner of the globe, from the far away (Tokyo, Istanbul) to closer (Wisconsin, Rochester). “The project is really about coming together and our shared experience of living in this city,” says Joe Tandle who along with friend Matt Geldof founded the group. Christening the group Triboro Sound, was both a geographic and philosophical starting point for the pair, ”There is a reason we all end up in New York, and responding to that is the main objective of the project” says Tandle.

While the stamp of innovation pervades the work, anyone who has experienced a Triboro performance will agree that this is no esoteric, inaccessible art project. “Often with fine art and performance, artists abandon the public. We’re trying to really embrace the public in general as well as broaden minds,” says Tandle.

Last Train Ride, which addresses themes of alienation and the temporal, transient modes of interaction endemic to New York City, exemplifies the innovative Triboro Sound experience. The stunning piece uses live music as a foundation and encapsulates awe-inspiring widescreen digital graphics with nuanced moments of dance. The effect is an incredible interplay between the analog, the digital, the real and the elusive.

Triboro’s member’s achievements are many and varied. Founders and musicians Joe Tandle and Matt Geldof have worked on over 12 albums together in seemingly countless numbers of groups and projects throughout New York. Mary Madsen, who co-choreographs the dance arm of the group with Katti Yamashita, was a recent standout in the New York Times critically lauded The Velocity of Things, as part of the 2005 New York fringe festival.

With such a high degree of achievement and expertise within the project, there is little doubt of the impending success that awaits this unique collaboration. Upcoming engagements will span dance venues, music halls, and theatres.
