Biografia

Terence “Terry” Oldfield (born 12 August 1949) is an English composer. He is brother to well-known music composers and performers Mike Oldfield and Sally Oldfield. Terry and his siblings were raised in the Roman Catholic faith of their mother, Maureen. Terry Oldfield was born in London, England and spent his childhood partly in Dublin and partly in Reading, Berkshire. He later attended a Benedictine Monastery School. His earliest musical experiences were in the myriad of folk clubs spring-up around the UK in the late 60s and early 70s, listening to the songs of Leonard Cohen, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Bob Dylan. Terry left school at 16 to travel the world and worked as a roadie for various bands including the Byrds, setting-up stage and sound mixing systems. During an extended stay on the Greek island of Hydra, he took up his first musical instrument, the flute. “I think it was learning to play in this way, with no formal guidance, that allowed me to develop the ability to compose music. I spent many happy days improvising tunes and discovering scales and arpeggios for myself, and soon started to teach myself to write these things down”. Terry’s only formal music training was in Agra, India where he spent some time learning to play the Tabla. In the early 70s, Terry and his brother Mike formed a band called ‘Barefoot’ playing rock’n’roll at colleges and clubs throughout the UK. Mike later went on to record the highly successful ‘Tubular Bells’ and later Terry played the flute in the famous live performance at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London. Terry’s career began in earnest when he was asked by the BBC to compose music for scenes called Great Railway Journeys of the World.

    My massage therapist keeps playing one of Terry Oldfield's albums. Been going for a year when I finally asked if the ambient music she's got running doesn't sound somehow repetitive. "Well, duh! It's the same album since a year back..." And curtains... <rolling eyes>
