Album · 2009 · 13 Songs. The Education of the Individual Soul East Forest. Listen on Apple Music.

The Education of the Individual Soul was released on February 3, 2009. Rachel Kowal of NPR described the album as "tied to both nature and to everyday urban life, giving it the qualities of a sort of ethereal and mystical modern-day fairytale. Tarynn Law of The 405 says the following: "To describe Trevor Oswalt, or East Forest, as innovative is putting it lightly.

East Forest plays electro-acoustic orchestral ambient-pop coined "blissful" (NPR) and "immersive" (Wired). His work has appeared on 1631 Recordings, Aquilo Records, as well as Tender Loving Empire & Universal/Decca. He is a Nord Artist & tours internationally.

Count: 13. Views: 8. The Education of the Individual Soul tracks. Run! Chopping the Woods. Interlude Choose Good. Interlude The Simple Things. Pacific Coast Highway.

The music of East Forest is hard to classify. With such diverse sound effects and samples as frogs croaking, children playing, side walk preachers preaching, and a New York subway door closing, The Education of the Individual Soulis tied to both nature and to everyday urban life, giving it the qualities of a sort of ethereal and mystical modern-day fairy tale. To Oswalt, vocals would have detracted from the album's organic quality. I like how little performance there is in a person chatting at a table or just in a bird song and how it can also contain such depth, honest, and real soul," he says. It is his hope that his music will "promote introspection and personal growth" and "put a few cracks in the hypnotic spell of our modern life.

Notes

The debut East Forest LP, “The Education Of The Individual Soul” is a forty-five minute uninterrupted sonic voyage down a rabbit hole of jungle monkeys, entheogenic messages, and pulsing beats – all designed to guide the listener toward inner healing. The 13 tracks weave around vintage piano, rhodes, electronic blips and bleeps, cosmic pads, with a solid foundation in minimalist melody.

Each hand packaged CD is a limited edition (of 500) printing of the debut LP "The Education Of The Individual Soul" includes original artwork by VC Johnson (the speaker on tracks 1 & 13) of Santa Barbara skate board art fame, an original photograph by Trevor, and other organic elements. Layout and hand drawn text/fonts by Daniel Birch. All printing is done on sustainable and recycled materials from our local Portland Stumptown printers including vegetable inks and recyclable packaging (but why would you want to get rid of the rad fold-out artwork?).
