People believe they can achieve absolute relaxation through silence, nevertheless, the beauty of music produces the same effects, as will spending time outdoors. For instance, the ‘Timberline And Mountain Crest’ album from Forest Robots features a total of 10 tracks well-designed that connect your inner self with serene soundscapes. Just like his previous material, ‘Supermoon Moonlight, Pt. One’, the Electronic Music Producer, found inspiration in nature. To sum up, his last offering was born after a long hiking adventure in the mountains, and as the night came, the artist let himself be carried by his perception of the surroundings, where imagination played an important role over a period of 8 months. Perhaps, what makes this record different is the Synthwave feel to it while remaining his cinematic signature sound. On a daily basis, we’re dealing with stress, but Forest Robots’ melodies always work in the most difficult times. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Scroll down so that you can read my track-by-track review.
1 — Sudden Bioluminescence A unique sonic journey begins plenty of bright futuristic synths. Spacey instrumentals were masterfully executed till the end.
2 — Where The Wild Summer Storms Run At certain times, you will notice the second track is highly funky. It’s full of adrenaline over Chill Electronica, and of course, rhythmically complex.
3 — Through The Trees And Into Wide Open Landscapes The first single comes accompanied by some hypnotic visuals that make justice to the song. Eloquently melodic in essence, with some 8-bit video game sounds. It’s simply authentic.
4 — Between The Orange And Purple Horizon Still he continues to experiment on a new territory with the Synthwave/Chiptune style. While a dark atmosphere simultaneously gains prominence.
5 — Treading Where Others Have Perished I bet you feel the same way, this tune is too short. Despite this, I would describe it in just two words: eerie and spacey.
6 — As The Sun Rises Between Timberline And Mountain Crest Soothing calming piano chords + electronic music in the middle, makes it the best song off the album. It also allows you to close your eyes while your mind wanders so easily.
7 — On A Desolate Shore Under A Full Moon Surely, he knows how to magically build some tension in the ambiance but the cheery chimes and the use of retro sound effects give it a harmonious touch.
8 — Farewell Sudden Summer Storm Clouds At this point, I just realized there are a lot of similarities between Vangelis’ ambient music and Forest Robots. I’m talking about the Greek artist who produced the popular Blade Runner soundtrack back in the 80s.
9 — When Forest Leaves Begin To Change Beautiful in all its glory, nice futuristic beats, and good flow. Chill out as you imagine leaves changing its colors.
10 — It’s Quietest At The Edge Of The Crestline Predictably, Forest Robots opted for a cinematic ending, which is literally the quietest in comparison with the rest. Different and original, trust me, it will induce you in a state of trance!
