This is very outstaindingly gigantic works in its lengthy and numbers of players in free jazz orchestral works. Non-stop over 2 hours and 20 minutes long and participants are as the above. His previous album of Celestrial communication orchestra "Luna Surface" (same in BYG label) is chaotic music. Drastic collective improvisation continues in 30 and several minutes. But this Seasons is different. Parts of Corrective imporvisation, arranged, solos are allocated in calculated manner. Sounds vary in stream of music. Whole work arises unique imagination in listners.
