Conceived in the often forgotten part of Michigan, the Upper Peninsula, with its lush forests, slower-paced lifestyle and noncompetitive atmosphere, composer Jesse DeCaire and The Terminal Orchestra began writing in 2005. What started as a studio outlet for making pastoral movie soundtrack music (for movies that haven’t been made yet) has since ballooned into a live, performing ensemble.
Complete with strings and percussion, Jesse DeCaire and The Terminal Orchestra have as much in common with contemporary composers/performers such as Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, Dirty Three and William Basinski as they do with Ennio Morricone and Igor Stravinksky. The Seasons is as chilling and eerie as it is uplifting and triumphant.
