Through The Forest (65:40) imagines a quiet afternoon spent alone in the woods. The album begins listening to The Wind In The Trees (25:14), and then continues with an early morning walk through the forest in A Stillness In The Woods (14:24). The album ends lying Under The Shade (26:02) of a tall tree, looking up at the branches and the skies above.
On Through The Forest, I wanted to take the feelings of peace and tranquility that many people associate with being in the woods and put them in a musical context. The main challenge was finding the different instruments and textures that would invoke the right atmosphere. I also wanted to start the album with a realistic feel and then work towards ending in a sort of daydream-like state. This was a very rewarding album to work on, and I think it fits really nicely into the Life Is My Soundtrack collection…
