“ Ted has been a vital part of the creation of the company, composing the music for all of our shows to date. His music and songs are unforgettable - they create the emotion of the piece and stick in an audience’s head long after they leave. He is a unique artist.”Claire Hodgson leading director of Diverse city/ Extraordinary Bodies
Award winning composer/ theatre maker Dom Coyote mixes alternative music and theatre, as well as being an associate artist with the internationally acclaimed Kneehigh ensemble.
Dom and Ted first collaborated on the Extraordinary Bodies show ‘Weighting’. They then went on to work on Dom’s show ‘Songs for the end of the World’, an award winning “gig-theatre” experience full of songs, sci-fi and a dystopian future.
In 2016 Dom, Ted and artist Ruth Shepherd were asked to devise a play for the education department of the National Theatre. ‘The Storyfishers’ was an interactive adventure for children and their grown up’s, “a joyous medley of stories, songs and silliness”.
Ted has also co-produced Dom Coyotes first solo album ‘Earthbound’
In 2015, Ted and theatre designer/ maker Amy Pitt, were commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre to develop a children’s interactive installation for 2 to 5 year olds. They made a “kaliedaphone”, a gigantic musical kaleidoscope that the children could lay or sit underneath to look up at the revolving visual image.
In 2016 the piece was brought back to be part of the ‘Town Hall Cherubs’, the BAC award winning Christmas show.
