ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Volume 3 (Andromeda) in the ‘Star System Trilogy’
An epic, beautiful instrumental space journey, transporting us home to our galactic origins. Trance-ambient movements, vast abstract textures and profound sonic experiments make this a cosmic music experience that deepens with each listening.
Instruments include keyboards, choirs, flutes, wind-chimes and samples.

“The sound he masterfully offers in Alpha~Omega is elegantly timeless, deliciously transporting, and certainly in an ecstatic category by itself. I joyfully recommend it!” Ariel Spilsbury, Author of ‘The Mayan Oracle: Return Path to the Stars’, USA


Vision Magazine – Alpha~Omega CD Review

Katie Gallanti, Editor

Alpha~Omega, created by Andrew Forrest, a reclusive English musician and painter of unique genius, is a composition that takes you on a journey to the infinite and beyond. Moody and emotional in tracks such as “In Search of Seraphim”, it soon explodes into melodies where the human voice becomes instrumental and communes with choirs of angels. Andrew Forrest has a gift that very few possess: the gift of an untainted mystical vision with an outstanding talent to match. Awe inspiring.

Reviews by Music Critic Bert Strolenberg, Holland



Rating: 4 stars

Alpha-Omega is the final chapter of the Star-System trilogy, released in the year Andrew Forrest permanently moved to New Zealand. The album contains seven tracks making up 74 minutes of ethereal heavenly music. At times a bit reminiscent of the floating works of Michael Stearns, the music breaths a great sense of space and relaxation. “Lightyears” features a distinct use of sequences embedded in celestial atmospheres, sometimes balancing on the edge of New Age, while the second track merely contains choirs and isn’t that spacey to my ears. Great space textures and choirs lead the way on the third track before another highlight can be heard in the strong “Parallel Worlds”, which has a great celestial impact and synthesizer effects. “Dark Portal” sounds overall majestic with its nice flute additions, before we get to the title track of the album. This is without doubt the strongest track, with its deep space realms and uplifting soundscapes. The nice drifting “Heavenly Host” brings the album to a beautiful close. This album can definitely compete with its predecessor. Now we have to wait for the release on CD of the first part of the trilogy, “Infinite Octaves”.

A gentle & blissful space
The cd "Alpha~Omega" is the final chapter of the Star-System trilogy, released in the year Andrew Forrest permanently moved to New Zealand.

The album contains seven tracks making up 74 minutes of ethereal heavenly music. At times a bit reminiscent to the floating works of Michael Stearns, the music breaths a great sense space and relaxation.
"Lightyears" features a distinct use of sequences embedded in celestial atmospheres, sometimes balancing on the edge of New Age, while the second track merely contains choirs and isn’t that spacy to my ears.
Great space textures and choirs lead the way on the third track before another highlight can be heard in the strong "Parallel Worlds" which has a great celestial impact and synthesizer fx’s.

"Dark Portal" sounds overall majestic with its nice flute additions before we get to the title track of the album, which is, without doubt the strongest track with its deep space realms and uplifting soundscapes.
The nice drifting "Heavenly Host" brings the album to a beautiful close.

This album can definitely compete with its predecessor. Now we have to wait for the cd release of the first part of the trilogy, "Octaves of Infinity".

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.
