On June 17th, The Triangle Project Part 3 will collaborate with LIT Lounge and FUSE Gallery.


Atoi is a band from Copenhagen, Denmark that reaches for treads to hold on to which turns in to funny balls of yarn and colorful sweaters. The music is knit together by 5 persons that in assembly creates the diverse outcome, played with an ever changing instrumentation and odd pop melodies combined to the modern sound of today.

Atoi has been a figure in the underground for some time, and has played concerts at some of the most recognized venues in Denmark: Roskilde festival 2007, Public Service 2005, Norberg festival (Sweden) 2006. Atoi has released their cover of Björk’s “Army of me” on Björk’s own record ‘Army of me - Remixes and Covers’.

Dansk Fløde (translated Danish Cream)

-Dansk Floede is Art Rock presented with more visuals than an acid trip gone wrong!

The encounter with Dansk Floede is a rock band flirting with punk, garage, electronic and ska elements. The music is inspired by White Stripes, Velvet Underground, Laurie Anderson and Chicks on Speed. Recently the band performed with Norwiegen opera star Tuva Semmingsen in a punk version of "Carmen".

"it..s beautiful worked thru Lo-Fi. It reminds you about pop-geniuses from the 60..s like Joe Meek, and his overdrive experiments or Phil Spector and his Wall of Sound. And then the songs are both easy to sing, funny, provocative - deep and blindly hopeful. With worked though naivness.”

Ralf Christensen, Information (Danish National Newspaper).

ABC No Rio

"ABC No Rio is a collectively-run center for art and activism. We are known internationally as a venue for oppositional culture. ABC No Rio was founded in 1980 by artists committed to political and social engagement and we retain these values to the present.

We seek to facilitate cross-pollination between artists and activists. ABC No Rio is a place where people share resources and ideas to impact society, culture, and community. We believe that art and activism should be for everyone, not just the professionals, experts, and cognoscenti. Our dream is a cadres of actively aware artists and artfully aware activists.

Our community is defined by a set of shared values and convictions. It is both a local and international community. It is a community committed to social justice, equality, anti-authoritarianism, autonomous action, collective processes, and to nurturing alternative structures and institutions operating on such principles. Our community includes artists and activists whose work promotes critical analysis and an expanded vision of possibility for our lives and the lives of our neighborhoods, cities, and societies.

It includes punks who embrace the Do-It-Yourself ethos, express positive outrage, and reject corporate commercialism. It includes nomads, squatters, fringe dwellers, and those among society's disenfrachised who find at ABC No Rio a place to be heard and valued."

The Triangle Project and ABC NO RIO is collaborating for the New York Installation
