Italian composer Teho Teardo's most well-known works may be his film soundtracks, but the musician (who works in both analog and digital sound media) has also collaborated with traditional art musicians such as Ennio Morricone, as well as boundary-pushing popular musicians like Blixa Bargeld and JG Thirlwell.
