My music, I don't really know how to define it. I do so many different things but I try with everything to do something new. Bring some kind of new element to the gumbo every time I produce something.
You find inspiration in nature and creation. "Rebirth with of the water particles", "The Condition (Love Your Neighbor)". What elements of nature are your favourite and how do they influence your work and specially for creating this album?
Forest Won: Wow man, yea. It's all nature. We are dependent on nature and we are a part of nature. That's what we forget because we try seperating. You see we go around spreading hate for stupid reasons, skin color, different beliefs in what/who God is, $$, and we don't expect nature to get back at us? We are all connected. We are all one.
Tell us about your current and future projects.
Forest Won: Yes, there are some different projects in the mix right. I have a new Forest Won project but without a title actually. The working title so far has been "Expansions by Forest Won" but I'm not sure about that yet. It also has some really amazing guests, will be announced soon!! It will be out in 2010!!
There's a compilation/ mixtape coming up, containing a bunch of kool stuff I've been hiding away fro some time. It's basically collaborations with a lot of different people, beatmakers, vocalist, musicians,etc... then I'm working on a project with Danish beatmaker Adam Kay ( he didi the drums on "Tomorrow"). Another thing that should be really kool and one of my favourite projects right now is one I'm doing with the singer Thomas Piper. He is just a real talented person.
Yea, lots of things, always trying to connect with creative serious people!
Tracklist for "Directions by Forest Won".
What's your message and advice for young talents, specially people who's out there making music?
Forest Won: Stay raw. Don't be afraid to create in new ways. Study the music/words/styles/ideas of those that came before.
If you fit this description, I hope I have a chance to listen to your stuff!!!
