The Odes is a continuing documentation of Ted Milton’s collaborations outside of Blurt for the last 25 years; a litany of recordings with The Back-To-Normal Orchestra, Steve Beresford, Sam Britton, Andreas Gerth, Loopspool, Herman Martin, Paddy Steers, Yam Yam and Seymour Milton to name but a few.

Individual tracks from these various collaborations have been re-purposed and re-interpreted by Ted Milton and Sam Britton into a performance scenario and toured extensively over the last few years.

The Odes – ‘Live’ is the first documentation of these performances; capturing unexpected twists to the existing material and new settings for Milton’s poetry and saxophone, the result is a vital, energetic vehicle that pushes the collaborative expeditions ever further, simultaneously adding new work along the way.

Ted Milton – Voice, Saxophone
Sam Britton – Electronics

Recorded live at Hundred Years Gallery, London on 25th May, 2012 by Seymour Milton.

IDEAL 003/NOT 025 is a series of existential nightmares, released in alliance with Not Applicable and strictly limited to 100 tapes and available through all major digital channels.
