Beda Folten

Hope everybody had a nice weekend. I'm happy to present this little charmer after finally finding a copy. Another mid-70s mood music curio recorded for yet-to-be-made films and TV shows. The twinkly pixie-dust sprinkled chamber music here is cut from the same cloth as Luboš Fišer's score for Valerie and Her Week of Wonders. It conjures up a whole woodland universe of adolescent mediums and secretive townspeople and village intrigue. It's the kind of music that could have been made entirely by children for children. Very simple mallet and woodwind interludes for surreal dream sequences and coming-of-age montages. Listen here.
