FORREST FANG'S HOME PAGE
"Letters To The Farthest Star" on Projekt
Realized over a two-year period, Letters channels my many eclectic and diverse influences, electronic and acoustic, Western and non-Western, melodic and textural, structured and improvisiational, and progressive and ambient, into a singular statement offered to the farthest star.
"Intense, spirited, and expansive, this is music like nobody else can make."
"Lush, exotic, enthralling, and an absolute must-own release."
"So definitive a portrait, it's hard to resist thinking of it as an artistic peak of some kind, especially when it so powerfully fuses the electronic and acoustic into a single compelling statement."
