Ted’s Dream was originally composed by Peter Linman and Michelle Kinney, and was added to and arranged by Jelloslave cellists Jacqueline Ultan and Michelle Kinney for performance at a Ted Talks conference in 2012 with the Twin Cities dance company Black Label Movement*. While the full Jelloslave quartet performs this piece live, the recording available for download is the Ted Talks version for two cellos. This same arrangement was also featured in Kevin Kling’s “Hammer, Anvil, and Stirrup” production.
*Jelloslave cellists Michelle Kinney & Jacqueline Ultan created this version of “Ted’s Dream” for the 2012 TED Conference in LA, CA, with Carl Flink’s, BLM, and scientist, John Bohannon’s piece “The Facts of Life.”

If you’re a musician thinking about distributing your music on streaming services such as Pandora and Spotify, this post is for you.
2015 has been the year that Jelloslave enters the music streaming service arena, and it’s been a lot of fun so far. We’re excited to make our music available everywhere our listeners hang out (digitally speaking). We’re also excited about reaching a larger audience and connecting with fans listening all over the world.
These new adventures are fueled by our passion to share our music with friends new and old. However, there has been a lot of hubbub recently about the potential revenue streams these services provide for artists. This infographic from Billboard caught our eye, and we thought you’d be interested as well:

If you like gazing up at the night sky, then you have something in common with the members of Jelloslave. Like you, we can’t help but notice when the moon, stars, and planets are shining especially bright.
Today our love for Irish music and planets collide as NASA announces a pretty cool name for one of Mercury’s craters. Carolan Crater has been named in honor of the Irish harpist and composer Turlough O’Carolan (1670 – 1738).
