New music from Ted's Myspace page
Mimbre Theatre Music
"In January I had the great pleasure of being asked to write a thirty minute score for a new theatre/ dance piece by the 'Mimbre' dance company. Based on the journey three friends take with each other it is directed by Spanish clown Leandre who I have been a big fan of for years. An instrumental piece made up of seven scenes using a line up of violin, cello, double bass, drums and myself on an assortment of instruments.
Its being mixed in the last week of May and from that I hope to do a limited, special edition, run of cds. The show will be touring street festivals around Europe in the summer and then coming back to be extended in the autumn to an hour long performance premiering at the London International Mime Festival in Jan 2010"
