“Capturing the natural world in its purest form, from babbling brooks to schools of flying insects, East Forest melds the natural world with the technological realm of looping and splicing and cutting. And he can do this all on the fly, pulling these gorgeous worlds out of thin air and painting this delicate masterpiece in front of your eyes with the flick of a switch or a masterful chord progression. Utilizing his own voice as an instrument, Trevor Oswalt balances the harshness of 1’s and 0’s in the electronic music sphere with light, serpentine loops of organic, buzzing, vibrant life. It’s not just for the transformational set, either. East Forest has performed at the mainest of mainstream events, like Mysteryland, and even brought his marvel to the semi-corporate world of a TED talk in Bend, Oregon.” – Anand Harsh, The Untz
