Composer / vibraphonist Telo Hoy utilizes vibraphone, glockenspiel, analog synthesizers and field recordings to develop pattern-based music that can be characterized as chordal, melodic, and textural.
Originally from New Mexico, his music is influenced by the acoustics of natural and built environments, the physicality of manufactured and non-manufactured materials, and the ways in which humans have altered how materials and environments interact.
He has performed at Rhizome DC (Washington, DC), Rockwood Music Hall (New York City), The Bowery Electric (New York City), The Living Gallery (Brooklyn), Compound Yellow (Chicago), Currents 826 Gallery (Santa Fe), and Mengi (Reykjavík).
His film scores have shown in films at Nòt Film Festival (Santarcangelo di Romagna, Italy), Wicked Queer Film Festival (Boston), Soho Horror Fest (London), and Rio Festival de Cinema LGBTQIA+ (Rio de Janeiro).
Telo holds a B.A. in Music Composition from Bard College. He is based in Queens, NY.
