New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Have you ever had a chance to listen to nature in its beauty? The idea for Forest Robots is one that began from an attempt to create a sound that will help people to relax like they are spending time on the mountains. Francisco Dominguez is the composer who is responsible for the music sound of the Forest Robots and drew a lot of inspiration from the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The aim of the album "Timberline and Mountain Crest" is to create a sound and collection of musical compositions that try to bring out the beauty of nature in its pure form, invoke emotions that you can feel when in tune with nature, just the way he felt when he was trying to teach his daughter about the importance of Mother Nature.
This ten-track album is made from electronic music and contains a lot of nice, vibrant synths that are implemented creatively in the first track "Sudden Bioluminescence." This theme continues all through the album and despite the fact that there are no lyrics, Francisco makes a great attempt to make sure that most of the songs all sound different.
In some of the tracks that open the album, you get a good idea of how authentic the sound that Forest Robot creates really is. The tracks are relaxing and exciting in the same vein. You can just listen to the vibes and instruments and feel yourself going on a space adventure.
He changes gear in the other tracks later in the album (track 6 - As the sun rises between timberline and mountain crest) by introducing wonderful and dreamy piano chords married with electronic music at its best to produce a totally new sound that is inspiring. You can just let your mind take you to places that you like and just relax in the moment. The last song on the album is quite dramatic and is actually the most quiet song on the album just like the name implies. Again, the originality and uniqueness of what Francisco tried to accomplish comes to mind again and you feel yourself just drifting away beautifully without a care in the world.
Francisco's second album shows how much he has grown and how impressively sound can be used to create a surreal bond with nature through the use of electronic and symphonic musical arrangements. The sound is unique and futuristic and can help you relax your mind in the most surprising of ways.
