ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Majestic, powerful, healing, searching, evocative celestial soundscapes. Layers of rich, subtle textures and melody weave into a unified sonic alchemy! A sacred marriage of heart and soul, enveloping the listener in enormous, slowly evolving layers of sound; the journey concludes with a feeling of harmony, spaciousness and deep peace. Includes exquisite musical contributions from Nigel Shaw (celtic whistle) on ‘Sacred Marriage’ and Brian Abbott (glissando guitar) on ‘Liquid Light’.



Vision Magazine – ALCHEMY CD Review – 2003

Katie Gallanti, Editor

Andrew Forrest’s long awaited new CD, his first release
since 1998, is finally available to the public. Picking up from where his last composition ‘Alpha~Omega’ left off, in the first track we find again the deep epic instrumental sound-scapes that lead the way on an inner journey into remote space and timelessness. But as we journey further into ‘Alchemy’ we find that the soul sweeping harmonics and trance-ambient movements so characteristic of Andrew’s work are intermittently blended with a new intimate and heart centred tone. We find the melodies of a traditional piano and the sounds of shamanic voices, earthly signatures amidst cosmic harmonies, creating the feeling of a true bridge between heaven and earth.

This is an alchemy of soul and heart, of cosmic and earthly, a sacred marriage that, bringing light into matter, transmutes ordinary consciousness into gold. As we are transported along waves of light, emotion and masterfully crafted music, we too are sucked into the current of this alchemical river of sound. A river from which we emerge transformed.

Andrew Forrest has yet again created a musical jewel that transcends words, an inspiring and truly beautiful work of the heart.

Master of sublime musical 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.
