ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes




The Accomplished View


About The Accomplished View:
A journey of ambient electronic pieces colored with the uniqueness of Forrest’s hallmark harmonies and a lyricism that evokes stories of travels through imaginative spaces.

“Throughout this CD, the rich musical landscape establishes an other-worldly mood, with a sense of intelligent spontaneity, while creating thoughtful, sophisticated and subtly emotional spaces,” remarked Smithson.

Forrest’s favorites and personal recommendations range from the captivating and soothing ambient jazz pieces “Deep Blue View” and “Tranquility Drops” to the mysterious journey of “Given” and the calm, uplifting “The Lighted Way”.

The new release is Smithson’s sixth ambient album release, following The Jouney of the Outshining Source, Reversal of Thought, Ooti, Dreaming Time and Sphere to Locus 29, all of which were well received among radio broadcasters and listeners worldwide.

About Forrest Smithson:
A lifelong musician, Smithson creates masterful excursions into new territories of lyrical and modern musical textures and atmospheres.

Forrest has long nurtured a deep musical connection. A student of many influences, from avant-garde, film music, modernist electro-acoustic music, to medieval and early music, his music is colored with elements necessary to bring diverse qualities into a unified expression.

In recent years, the musical expression of the inner growth occurring in his own life came into very clear focus, resulting in five recent commercial releases, including Sphere to Locus 29, Dreaming Time, OOTI with a ZMR #3 ranking for all of 2015, and Reversal of Thought. Dreaming Time was a “Best of CDs of 2013” by Backroads and a top-10 ranking on ZMR in 2014.

Smithson’s last release, Journey of the Outshining Source, was a ZMR top-10 and was nominated for best ambient album for 2017 by Zone Music Reporter and One World Music. Tracks from several of these albums have been played on highly regarded shows such as Hearts of Space, Spotify, Echoes, Sirius XM “Spa”, Star’s End, and Ultima Thule. Smithson’s albums are available at online sales sites such as ForrestSmithson.com, iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby.

“My experiences in life are deeply mirrored in my music. My life’s work is to help people transform themselves, to move into an experience of wholeness that honors their individuality and uniqueness of expression.”
