Sonic Seasonings
1972 2LP Original In Gatefold With Poster. "The Same Year Carlos Finalized The Score For A Clockwork Orange, The Composer Recorded A Double Album Named Sonic Seasonings; It Was A Complete Turn Away From The Majestic Synthesizer Soundscapes And Classical Inspirations That Had Marked The Movie Score. Instead, Carlos Recorded Large Amounts Of Environmental Passages To Produce A Work That Cycled Through The Four Seasons. Beginning With Bird Calls And A Thunderstorm To Mark "Spring," Carlos Phrases The Synthesizers Only In Terms Of The Nature Sounds Heard. They Rarely Interject Themselves, And The Result Is Closer To A Nature Recording With Occasional Effects Than A Synthesizer Recording With Nature Sounds. Of Course, There Was No Precedent For "Nature," "Environmental," Or Even "New Age" Music In 1972 -- Sonic Seasonings Was Basically The Genesis For Several Entire Genres Of Music Two Decades Later. As Part Of East Side Digital's Carlos Cd Reissue Campaign, Sonic Seasonings Was Issued As A Two-disc Set, Including The Original Lp Plus A Second Disc Of "Natural" Recordings, Originally Begun In 1986 And Known As Land Of The Midnight Sun."
