Album Notes
Frank Zappia is a composer of piano and keyboard-based music from the Australian Capital Territory. Born and raised in Queanbeyan, New South Wales, Australia. Frank has been playing piano by ear since the age of 3 and has also undertaken some studies in classical and modern music playing.

Frank's 2004 album, `The Forest' was composed entirely on an Ensoniq TS-12 keyboard workstation, with further track mixing and editing using computer-based software. Frank's aim was to create a "pseudo-organic” sound on this album, so he intentionally chose to use sampled keyboard sounds that were limited to acoustic or non-electronic sounds, including drums, bass, guitar, saxophone and flute. Some sound effects, including a sample of a chanting avatar were also used in the mix.

The album's theme is based around the concept of taking the listener on a journey, from dusk to dawn, through a forest of the mind and spirit.
