ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Welcome to the latest music release, 'One'.
Strangely, it's a musical attempt to convey energetically, through sound, the 'apparent' shift from the contracted dualistic dream of separation to the reality of infinite and boundless freedom, or Oneness.

Typical sounds you will hear are: lush synth strings, grand piano, electric piano, overtone chanting, choirs and solo voices, flutes, chimes and bells, beautiful arpeggiated synth sequences, and countless rich and multi-layered abstract textures.

'One' is the first volume of the 'Source Quartet'.
The next three volumes in the quartet are already well underway...more details later this year.
(Due to the universal plight of ever-plummeting CD sales, 'One' is available as download only...sincere apologies to any baby-boomer fans of physical CDs still out there...I feel exactly the same. The good news is that you can opt for top quality FLAC downloads from here! Sonically, these are at least as good, if not superior quality to audio CDs.)

A Masterpiece; the Divine has spoken through this music
ONE is a Masterpiece; the Divine has spoken through this music...Straight away I could feel the music go straight to my solar plexus and navel chakras....Listening, I felt like I was in space and underwater at the same time. That I was sitting on a spinning planet, sinking into the ground. Flying and ungrounded, yet grounded and below ground....then there was beautiful gentle music where I could hear fairies playing, and see nature in her glory...wow...just very beautiful. Thank you for the music.

Stunning
This latest offering from Andrew Forrest is beautifully composed. Stunning in parts and emotionally moving as you sense the shift from start to finish. I am loving it as I do all his work. It is so uplifting and expansive, so easy to be carried into the higher realms through the sound waves. They seem to transpose time. Very beautiful. Again, thank you Andrew.

Introspective, immersive & spacious ambiences
With his tenth album “One” (the first chapter in the Source Quartet-series), New Zealand-based composer and visual artist Andrew Forrest returns with a new sonic revelation. In essence it’s an energetic experience of shifting from tight contracted separateness to the expanded freedom from illusory self through sound. Similar to previous albums, Mr. Forrest is the experienced conductor of a well-equipped electronic orchestra, applying a large assortment of instruments and sounds. The outcome is an emotive 65-minute ride unfolding naturally and harmonically in four phases as it percolates the listener smoothly into grand expanses. The release kicks off with “Unveiling Eternity”, an energetic opening or 'satori' to timelessness or eternity submerging the listener in comfortable celestial tapestries and waveforms. The celestial journey continues beautifully on the 19-minute “The Rapture” (focusing on the delight of remembering the freedom and wonder we all knew as a small child) incorporating some great piano in the first half while evoking a strong time machine feel as it unwinds. Hints of classic space music with a nice sense of awe and wonder shimmer through. The velvet, lush and grand textures of third space music marvel “Union of Opposites” center upon the mysterious experience of where the opposites of duality merge and thus cancel each other out.
This brings us to majestic, smooth swirling textural vistas of the closing title piece “One”, representing the completion of the shift; so the separate sense of self has completely vanished, and life is now experienced without illusion...as boundless, timeless Oneness, or home. It’s a pity though this album is only available as a download, as this evocative, high-quality sonic art truly deserves a physical release.

Oneness revealed
Love this album! We're playing ONE regularly as it is sooo beautiful, melodious and deeply delightful. The sounds seem to change the subtle vibration of everything... the listener, the room, the environment... revealing the oneness of all these apparently separate things. Thank you!

Andrew Forrest is in a league of his own
With One: Source Quartet, Vol 1, Andrew Forrest has proved that he is not only a cut above the rest, but he is certainly in a league of his own. This is a superb album and I am now eagerly awaiting the forthcoming volumes. For me, it is his best work yet. Thank you Andrew.
