Instruments, The – ?Cast A Half Shadow? – [Orange Twin]

Numa   6/21/2006   A Library, CD

Orchestral Georgian Folk. ‘Cast A Half Shadow? is the second release from the Athens, Georgia-based collective The Instruments. Headed up by Heather McIntosh, The Instruments are a vehicle for her compositions. A classically trained cellist with a BA in music from the University of Georgia, Heather McIntosh creates a lush orchestral folk sound with The Instruments. As with most Orange Twin releases, there is some help from other Orange Twin artists to round out the sound. With six members as the core, the sound is dense and at times the density leads to over-complexity. The woodwinds give this music the space it needs. I personally found myself leaning towards the three instrumental pieces as my favorites. — Numa
