Arctic Circle

The Arctic Circle is a London based project run by Ben Eshmade. His aim is to encourage musicians and performers to collaborate in either a live or recorded capacity.

Ted has been involved for many years, during which time he has worked with Adrian Crowley, Harry Escott, Gill Sandell, Emily Barker, Dom Coyote and Ben’s very own Age of Not Believing Orchestra, a hugely ambitious project celebrating Bens love of magical realism.

“Ted is one of my favourite human beings - he’s a craftsman in his approach to song writing, an extremely generous collaborator, and a skilled arranger, not to forget his contagious smile and laugh!” Ben Eshmade


The Selfish Giant

In December 2017, as part of Daylight Music’s Christmas Special, Ted debuted his score for Oscar Wilde’s, ‘The Selfish Giant’. This was an experiment in bringing a “live’ audio book experience to the audience, featuring a quintet of musicians and the narration of Dublin based songwriter Adrian Crowley.
