Actually, this review could be very short. 'The Forest Is Sleeping Within The Trees' is a six track album, built around the piano and the pump organ. One of the keywords here is "minimalism" as the sounds of both instruments seem to dance with and around one another. Fans of artists like William Basinski , Tim Hecker or Stars Of The Lid will easily appreciate these six tunes. The whole thing is gloomy, driving on looping organs and quite often repetitive piano touches. The latter give the music a neat sense of pulsation.
It's not easy to select a favorite track, perhaps it's 'Part 1', a somewhat rhythmic and enticing piece of music. 'Part 2' is more experimental, a bit harsher. It still wanders through ambient landscapes, but feels rougher. 'Part 3' is dreamy and seductive while 'Part 4' drags the listening along dark drones and eerie soundscapes. The others are up to you to discover and I really recommend checking out this gem. Piano ambient doesn't often come this narrative and immersive, I can tell you that!!!
