Processed ethnic instruments and minimalist ambient soundscapes. Much like a weightless walk through a limitless garden.
Music Tap: âFor well over three decades, Forrest Fang has created sound journeys, each as different as the landscape imagery they invoke. Thatâs an impressive commitment to not only his own sense of atmospheric creativity, but also to dedicated fans accumulated throughout his sixteen albums. With Scenes from a Ghost Train, Forrest Fang opts to take listeners on a cross-universe ride in a train that exists only within you. More than an ambient album, itâs a self-creating painting of continual brush strokes of imagination. It sets a tone for the soundtrack of travel that is beautifully augmented by the musical skills of Forrest Fangâs toolbox of various instruments. Works by Forrest Fang are easily notable experiences in vast and completely uncharted cerebral landscapes.â
Forrest Fangâs electronic creations are a surrealist blend of processed ethnic instruments and minimalist, ambient soundscapes. He combines these elements âinto a fusion that resists the stereotype of the term,â KQEDâs Ned Raggett writes. âFangâs work creates an enveloping flow of rich sound and understated experimentation. It doesnât sound like one specific style, nor a mix of them all at once â but something distinctly his own.â
ExposÃ© Magazine:, âThe shimmering textures are created via walls of processed acoustic sounds with synthesizers supporting, with or without percussion, and then often the melody instruments emerge out of this fog, first subtly and then boldly, carrying each piece forward. At certain points the textures may subside and expose the melodic content to a greater degree as a way of achieving a more powerful dynamic. Melodies within the mist tend to be minimalist and somewhat cyclical in nature, garnering a strong and evident emotional content that is at once fresh, pervasive and dreamlike, much like a weightless walk through an limitless garden.â
