Heartland is a fully orchestral record, designed to exist simultaneously as an album, a 45-minute piece of orchestral music, and a set of songs for looped violin and voice.

Owen Pallett explains: "The album was compositionally modeled upon the principles of electronic music -- the principles of analog synthesis informing symphonic writing, like an inversion of a Tomita record. These songs, too, were designed to be as dense with polyphony as the Final Fantasy live shows can become. While writing it, I kept an image in my head of putting so many notes on the page that the paper turned black." From the Label
