Tristano occupies a unique position along the musical space-time genre continuum: he dwells effortlessly in the traditional, classical yesterday and in the ever-evolving technological tomorrow – simultaneously. His records come out on esteemed 120-year-old German classical label Deutsche Grammophon and modern techno arbiter, Get Physical. While classical and electronic are not novel elements to cross anymore, Tristano’s trick is in seamlessly integrating his Juilliard training with revelations gleaned from far less formal studies in New York city clubs.
