It's ambient music full of psychedelic and folk music inspirited melodies, symbiosis of organic and artificial sounds made with modular synthesizers.Main idea of the album is creating a trance and meditative effect for a listener. Ambient textures, folk melodies on string instruments, grainy repetitive loops and fuzzy tones create a psychedelic emergent effect.Forest Thoughts is a number of stories from old man notebook who has lost in the forest. Flashback in his memory create impulses to rethink of his history.All tracks are made on modular synths (Moog format and Eurorack), hardware effects and guitars. No 3rd party samples, libraries or vst instruments were used. Imperfection of textures and melodies, overdriven sounds and detuned voices are for realization the album's idea.

Take the shimmering guitars of the Cocteau Twins, dilate and lengthen with the wistfulness of Boards of Canada and release them like one of Robert Rich’s haunting soundscapes with a jazz coda and you have Carlo Giustini's 'Custodi'. It's brilliant. sepulchre19
