TERMINAL ORCHESTRA, THE: The Seasons: CD

Jul 21, 2011

According to the press one-sheet that came with this, the group was originally conceived to create “pastoral movie soundtrack music (for movies that haven’t been made yet),” and that is definitely in evidence here. Four major instrumental compositions and four accompanying introductions/interludes comprise the music here, one for each of the seasons. The music is delicate, nuanced, and effective in invoking different moods and images for different seasons, resulting in a lush, beautiful release that is decidedly aiming more for “music as an art form” than “music as a cash cow.” Very nice work.
