East Forest walks between worlds, building bridges across music, nature & technology. When he translated his last name from the German to English (Ost=East, Wald=Forest) he never anticipated the musical journey it would take him on.
The solo project’s genesis in 2008 came from humble beginnings as Oswalt started leading underground shamanic sound meditation ceremonies all across the country. Playing in the private shadows allowed the patient sound of East Forest to emerge: an emotional & spacious musical lexicon with a sound that took shape out of a practical need to play solo for 4-6 hours while guiding a room full of listeners all lying on the floor in deep meditation. Live looping & layered vintage piano melodies filled the musical space while angelic vocals & original field recordings floated above.
30+ releases later East Forest continues to explore a path of emotionally driven music that pulls from ambient, classical, electronic & indie-pop genres. He has three #1 iTunes charting albums as well several top ten Billboard chart positions. His collaborations include Nick Mulvey, Typhoon, Ram Dass, Laraaji, Hammock as well as speaking at TED & working with institutions including Google & John Hopkin’s neuroaethetics project.
