Ben said on the red carpet that he is going to do a side-project involving Tim Minchin, Amanda Palmer and Alicia Witty.

I am not sure when it is going to happen and not sure what the other pianists' tour dates are like but I would imagine it would be this year. However, I am really excited about this especially with Tim Minchin and his humour.

I would have liked to see Jamie Cullum a part of this project as he is clearly a devoted fan of Ben's and has publically stated this (and even spoke to him about it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euLWrwHT2ME). In fact, both Cullum and Tim Minchin had Folds tracks when they appeared on the BBC's Dessert Island Disc series with Kirsty Young.

What are everyone else's thoughts?

According to a Japanese magazine interview with Ben, they named their project "40 Fingers for 4-Piano Players". They are going to record an album in April.
