(includes a snippet of 4mins each of the 4 tracks)

Initially planned as a short interlude between two full albums, "Forestscapes" went totally out of the source concept and suddenly became a longplayer. The main idea was to create a short EP with an emphasis on decent synthesizer soundscapes and colorful field recordings in the style of old vintage tapes and early ambient/drone cassette productions. Well, things aren't all that simple.

In addition to the continuous tales of our wanderings and recordings, we started to produce a sub-plot focused on individual perceptions of the seasons in the forest with our very own views, and what's better than developing all those numerous impressions to a different kind of an album, consisting of four chapters? In this way we were able to materialize a special longplayer in our preferred format of storytelling, associated with childhood memories and vintage music impressions: on cassette.

"Forestscapes" contains four tracks, meaning one track for spring, summer, autumn and winter. It starts with a spacious and experimental ambient track about spring made by Jaymon, followed by a melancholic late summer vision with epic choir and pad textures from Nemo, going on with a brighter and more colorful piece about autumn, again made by Jaymon, and finally culminating into a deep winter tale - a perfect mixture of three installed parts, combining the Nautilus Project's drone sound (like in "Excursions") with Nemo's ambient sound, and in the middle of it a wonderful and dreamy short story of field recordings with winter noise and environment soundscapes, all of them taken in winter 2012 - 2013.

The case was made from stylish natural card and with printed front and back covers, the cassette shell has been manufactured in Canada in warm light-brown color and with printed labels. Additionally, this release contains a bonus download of a Forest Root's digital album, printed as download code on an inlay card with stamped Forest Roots logo.
