Canyon Walls was inspired by the feeling of flying along the walls of a canyon like a bird. Just kidding, I did imagine that while creating the song, but the song is more so about what a specific place like a canyon says to you while witnessing it.
In the last minute of “Bluff”, we get vague outlines of a string section that might have been, and it’s a moment where the outline makes a much bigger impact than the full element would. Complete with a smoldering bassline, this three-way collaboration is a perfect accompaniment for walking through knee-high snow, cruising home after a long day, or any other activity that involves putting one foot in front of the other. And it’s a collaboration we hope to hear more from.
You can get more of Koresma by listening to “Forest Sang” as found on VINYL MOON Volume 031: The Nature of Inner Space.
This remix of TBE favorite “The Overlook” starts off faithful to the original, but the DJ flips, re-pitching, and new parts grow as you make your way through, leaning more fully into the trip-hop elements present in the original and giving it an attitude that was missing before. Common Tiger helps us rediscover something we thought we knew.

Koresma gets another tasty remix from Good Lee, this time on a more drastic scale. Good Lee reimagines “Forest Sang” entirely, as if changing the perspective of the forest from the chorus of treetop birds as seen from above to the low fog gathering calmly at the base of the tree trunks. It’s a dramatic shift, but it still feels distinctly at home with the rest of Koresma’s music.
With swaying arpeggios and a resonating flute-guitar duo, you’ll think the trees really are singing to you in Koresma’s “Forest Sang,” a song the artist describes as one’s relationship with nature. Perfect for the infinite forests and cornfields of our vast collective imaginations.
