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.

Minimal long form drone-based ambience that rises and falls over the course of it's near hour length, allowing the listener to fully immerse themselves in it's charms and wonders. There are some beautiful textures that evolve over time, little touches that inspire and appeal throughout. Really great stuff... rikm
