Odes is a continuing documentation of Ted Milton’s musical collaborations outside of his band Blurt. Initially published as a limited edition book and recording by the Brussels-based laboratory for contemporary transdisciplinary arts Nadine, the release compiled collaborations with The Back To Normal Orchestra, Steve Beresford, Sam Britton, Andreas Gerth, Herman Martin, Paddy Steers and Seymour Milton, documenting Ted’s exploration of new musical territories.
Since its release, the music on Odes has been translated and re-interpreted by Ted Milton and Sam Britton into a live show, adding unexpected performative 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.
Odes has toured extensively in Europe and has featured, amongst numerous other festival appearances, as part of Patti Smith’s “Soirées Nomades” at the Fondation Cartier.
