Review of Essence

Review by Katie Gallanti,

What a wonderful composition! Andrew’s music is such a delight and this last production is as usual flawless, beautiful, enchanting and breathtaking in its expansiveness. We enter the CD with a serene track with hints of space amongst ethereal harmonies, which immediately lifts us in one of the otherworldly spiritual soundscapes that we have become accustomed to hearing from this very talented artist. And as the sounds deepen, a feeling of awe takes hold that is with us throughout the whole album. At mid-CD I literally felt my heart burst forth with love and inspiration. The deep love that encompasses and views all. And the inspiration that comes from reconnecting to one’s Soul. I felt as if I were viewing the universe through the eyes of Source. The feeling of tangible connection to the spirit of the cosmos and its divine essence is palpable and deepens from track to track. Very uplifting, very inspiring, very heart centered and moving, this CD is a true gem.

A Breathtaking Cosmic Voyage
With "Essence", New-Zealand composer and visual artist Andrew Forrest brings us another chapter for "inner journeying to multi-dimensional realities" as he likes to call it.
From the start, the subtle evolving and mesmerizing space music of "Essence" is evoking this grand out-there feel, masterfully presented in four seamlessly merged and overall gracious textural movements with arpeggiated sequences.
Moreover, this highly immersive and celestial music takes you across the border where "Beyond the Beyond" (the closing piece of his previous album) left us, as attentive listeners may observe.
The magical music is a voyage through space and time, smoothly taking every corner with its subtle weaving of delicate, abstract textures.
Especially the impeccable sound design and the gentle flow through the different movements of "Essence" is impressive, culminating in the highlight "Part 4".

All in all, "Essence" superbly complements Andrews previous journeys of cinematic ambient soundscapes of deep space. A must-have.
Note this album is only available as factory pressed cd from Andrew’s website listed below.

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.
