ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After years of preparing new sound- textures, and taking 12 months to compose and record, the long awaited ‘Infinite Octaves’ finally concludes Andrew’s ‘Star System Trilogy’. Four monumental, deep space tracks guide the listener to the timeless, the boundless. A sonic leap from all previous recordings…thanks to a new all-digital recording studio with unlimited track counts and enormous editing possibilities! The most ‘far out/in’ of all Andrew’s music to date.

“What music! Sublime, beautiful, peaceful, floating, timeless, accessing higher realms. Infinite Octaves complements Starseed and Alpha~Omega perfectly. I have listened to many ambient/electronic albums; yours are on a different level all together.”

Review of Infinite Octaves

Review by Katie Gallanti, www.cosmicessence.com

Infinite Octaves is a profound voyage through the depths of feeling and emotion. The last of Andrew’s Star System Trilogy and dedicated to the Pleiades, this is a very introspective album that stimulates reflection and a moving melancholy, that is however ultimately healing and uplifting in its essence. As I listened to the composition, I felt as if I were sitting on the edge of the river of life, observing past, present and future unfolding in time, with the benign compassion of a very high perspective.
I was once taught that higher dimensional love, the love of the higher realms, is a love that is detached, not as in uncaring, but as in able to observe and be and hold space, without adding the color of turbulent emotion. In this composition I felt the presence of such love, as I often do in Andrew’s work, as he always brings to the table not just notes and music, but a very high energy, with a tangible presence, a consciousness beyond space and time, which patiently loves, embraces and upholds.
Indeed this is the true gift of Andrew’s music. Aside from the precision of his musical talent, which is flawless and professional, placing his work in a completely different category from most new age music, he is truly a channel for something “other”. An other that one cannot but think of as belonging to the highest of dimensional realms. A pure consciousness that lives beyond the worlds and which touches and transforms. This higher dimensional presence is in all of Andrew’s work, but is particularly visible here and it’s an honor to be held in this space for the duration of this musical journey. Thank you Andrew for being the conduit to such perfection and healing. This album is an opening and an initiation. A true beauty to behold.

Master of sublime landscapes and spacescapes
I only discovered the music of Andrew Forrest a few months back via the Sonic Immersion electronic/ambient music review website. I'm already proud to say that I now own the complete collection of his musical output to date. If you like music in which to totally immerse oneself, then this is for you! Put on a good pair of headphones, switch off from the world,and relax. Let the serene soundscapes, ethereal and floating layers of exquisite pads, augmented from time to time with subtle sequencing, take you to other realms or wherever you may wish to journey. Sometimes abstract, sometimes grand and cinematic, sometimes heavenly or celestial, and sometimes simply quite beautiful and uplifting. The music is well crafted, excellently produced, mixed and mastered. I'm certainly looking forward to future releases from this talented artist.

Magic and blissful cosmic music
After a long hiatus of seven years, Andrew Forrest finally brings us the "final" chapter of his "Star- System Trilogy", which is actually not the third but the first volume. "Infinite Octaves" is a stunning work of space music in the true sense, offering a free form, gentle and gracious ride through higher spheres and other realities. The four extended tracks evoke a truly spatial and dimensional-shift, as it glides peacefully and almost fluidly through the grand canyon of spaces with highly cinematic and uplifting effect. It’s warm and embracing, meant for deep listening and inner awareness as it caresses the mind and soul. These magical soundscapes with occasional sequencer patterns fit into the grand design of all things, evoking multi-coloured emotions and insights, keenly avoiding the new-age trap as the grand journey smoothly unfolds.
All in all, "Infinite Octaves" makes a sensational and truly magical album.
Bravo, Mr Forrest!

Sonic Soundscapes That Leaves You Breathless!
There are times in our life's when we want to escape reality for a while, times when we simply have had enough of everyday stress in life. I had the latter not long ago, and was looking for something very spectacular, not to mention epic, in terms of space-music (I'm a die-hard space-music/new age fan myself)) so I stumbled across this masterpiece called 'Infinite Octaves' by Andrew Forrest while browsing CDBABY for new ambient/space music, and boy am I glad I did?!. This is exactly what I've been wanting, and have been looking for for "ages". The album is truly spectacular, both in terms of how immersive it is, and how it's structured. Surely, most of us "space enthusiasts" knows about Jonn Serrie and hail him as the "King" of space-music, but Andrew Forrest must be getting very close, and certainly with this masterpiece!. I even think he surpasses some of Jonn's better albums with this release. What you will get here is stunning beauty from start to finish. All tracks are floating in and out, creating a masterfully done sonic soundscape that breathes along in a magnificent way. There are moments with some very deep-space sounding atmospheric sounds, just to change with long floating beautifully done sequencing. And speaking of beautiful sequencing. Listen to tracks such as 'Through the Seventh Stargate' and 'Beyond the Beyond' and you will be in for a treat. It's such a dreamlike album, and it will grab your attention from the very first track to the very last track (and second!) with it's beautifully layered sequencing and a stunning cinematic soundscapes that leaves you breathless!. I will, without a doubt, give this album a 5 star rating!. This is definetely Andrew Forrest at his best. Epic!!
