Introducing Telepathic Teddy Bear, the producer is known for his rock, pop, synth-pop, EDM type of sound. In his latest EP, _The Course of Empire_, Telepathic Teddy Bear has taken the EP format and produced a unique creation that delivers an epic story through a merging of electro synth soundscapes with organic and orchestral elements designed to unfold the rise and fall of a kingdom. There are 5 songs in the EP, one for each painting of The Course of Empire series by Thomas Cole, where the birth and death of humanity, the harmony of nature, the excess of wealth, all take place within the span of 30 minutes. Held together by towering basses, swelling cellos, heavy brass and soothing pianos, this work is a cool breath of ingenuity that is welcome in today’s indistinct musical landscape.
The EP has been praised as “an album made in a state of grace, a suffocating beauty bordering on genius,” “powerful and haunting” and “an impression of timelessness,” and has been embraced by music fans around the world. From the Americas to Europe, TTB has boldly shown his followers a path meant to be taken by the passionate and adventurous.
The foundations of TTB’s philosophy can be heard throughout his work. His lyrical honesty, the audacious structural elements suggest at an attitude always striving for the edges, searching for limits. Philosophical contemplations wrapped inside the punch of deep kicks and emotional string harmonies give a perspective inside of the complexity behind the artist, which began since he was 9 years old.
His first attempt at music started with the drums when he still wasn’t tall enough to reach the pedals. He continued with his passion throughout his teenage years by taking guitar lessons and then piano only to substitute his training in favor of a more autodidactic approach, learning to play popular songs and classical piano pieces on his own. He then went to Berklee College of Music focusing on making music for film, which is where his love for orchestra was initiated. Even after returning to his hometown his passion never subsided eventually developing into his sound of today, arising from an experimentation with synth sounds and within an atmosphere of home music production. Always moving forward, TTB gets his inspiration from visionaries such as Bjork, Sufjan Stevens and Rufus Wainwright and continues to forge his sound into something he would admire listening from someone else. The result is his latest EP as well as his more commercial offering the _Reactions_ LP.
Today, Telepathic Teddy Bear has spent considerable time in the studio this year producing his latest LP, scheduled to come out in 2014, as well as producing and collaborating with the Grammy nominated Los Claxons and a promising mexican band Clubz. He has also produced many tracks for the internationally acclaimed EDM DJ and entrepreneur Kryoman. Among his achievements, you can catch TTB’s music among many popular commercials from Nike, Jaguar, W Hotels, Blue Tomato, Loose Kid, K-Mart, Kickstarter and Sprint. Listen to his work here:
