Multi-instrumentalist Theodore shares new single ‘Towards? (for what is to come)’
Multi-instrumentalist and composer Theodore has shared his latest single ‘Towards? (for what is to come)’ slated for release on 2nd March via UnitedWeFly. The Pink Floydesque track was mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Rós, Moby, M83) and performed live at the fabled Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios.
Based in Athens, Theodore is renowned for his mesmerising live performances, fusing classical composition with electronic elements to create beautiful, atmospheric and often cinematic songs. His sound is characterized by contrasting styles, with a unique mélange of influences allowing a broad scope of movement from ethereal, to melancholic, to classical, to post rock.
Theodore was commissioned to write the new score for Buster Keaton’s classic silent comedy of 1928, The Cameraman. He and his band then performed the score live to the film screening, in the unforgettable setting of the Temple of Zeus in Athens, which he described as “one of the best moments of my life.”
Influenced by the likes of Sigur Ros, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Doors, Chatzidakis, Vagelis Papathanasiou, Nils Frahm, The National, Olafur, Arcade Fire, and Max Richter, Theodore’s sound is a stream of sonic consciousness and ethereal melodies in a cauldron of psychedelica.
Speaking of the single Theodore says “Towards? (for what is to come) is going to be the first song of my upcoming album. This is the initial question I will be exploring throughout the album. It is about the two different sides of one’s personality; the conscious and the magical one and inspired by the battle between them.”
