At the TED Conference earlier this year, my ‘house band’ played a dozen or so short musical intros to the speaker sessions over a four day period. They were filmed, and I’ve put one up on YouTube. If you ask politely I might upload a few more! This one’s an old Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band number. (Hey Neil Innes, if you’re out there I’ve been trying to get hold of you!)
The band consists of myself, to my right Rufus Capadocia on 5-string electric cello, Rachelle Garniez on claviola and vocals, and Mark Stewart on banjo and a strange wind instrument whose name I’ve forgotten. (A Xophon? I will have to ask Mark.) Anyway it’s not much bigger than a mouthpiece, and has no right to have such a fat sound.
