Such music, performed on the alto flute, was first released on Theo’s acclaimed album Slow Life which was credited as the inspiration behind the Jonathan Coe novel “The Rain before it Falls” Theo has developed this technique and incorporated it into his work with Robert Fripp, David Sylvian, and Cipher (Past Lives, 8 silent film soundtracks, many UK tours and 3 CDs)
