forest moon is a canadian indie/folk artist. his album 'a northern star, a perfect stone' is available on epoch tapes. forest's music has northern vibes, like the aurora gently undulating above the silent tundra.
his songs are centered around a plucked nylon string guitar, but the production can become huge with walls of spacey, new age synths and string and horn arrangements atop skittering drum machines or pounding organic percussion. these pieces are put into order for in a way that sounds like a mystical north-woods orchestra.
