Nothing brings home the ever changing aspects of nature like the four seasons – spring, summer, autumn and winter.
Each season has its own character and affects our emotions in a different way. All life is affected by the changes in nature, and even if many Northern Europeans have unwittingly distanced themselves from the natural environment, the effect on each of us is there to be re-discovered.
Music being intertwined with the changing seasons is not a new concept, but writing a song or piece of music with a particular season in mind is an excellent way to weave nature’s magic into the music of OR Media.
The song, ‘The Wheel’ includes a verse for each season, and with the leaves turning a beautiful yet sad golden hue in merry England, perhaps thoughts of countryside walks, the crackle of leaves underfoot, pub fires and the stealthy approach of Jack Frost might just inspire a few of our own musicians to pick up their instrument of choice and pen a folk song relating to their naturalistic feelings.
