Martyn "Teddy Bear" Ware (born 19 May 1956 in Sheffield, England) is a British musician and music producer. He is the chairman of a local football team: PPA. As a founder member of both The Human League and Heaven 17, he was partly responsible for hit records such as "Being Boiled" and "Temptation". He has also worked as a record producer, notably helping to revitalise Tina Turner''s career in 1983 with "Let''s Stay Together" and producing Erasure''s I Say I Say I Say album in 1994. More recently, he has collaborated with Vince Clarke (as The Clarke & Ware Experiment) on two music projects; the Pretentious album (1999), and Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle (2001). He has also contributed programmes to internet radio stations. Ware created a 3D surround sound auditorium for the National Centre for Popular Music in Sheffield - a museum of contemporary music and culture, launched with Â£15 million of National Lottery money, which opened in March 1999 and closed in July 2000. BBC News described the centre as having been "shunned" by visitors, and, despite a Â£2 million relaunch, the Centre closed. Despite this, Ware later used the surround sound technology to launch an Arts Council subsidised touring project called "The Future of Sound".
