Forrest Fang - Letters To The Farthest Star download mp3 album
Fang began his tenth album with a challenge to himself: create a single work that acknowledged both past and present explorations while hinting at new avenues to come. In those moments, the tracks are textural, propulsive, expressive, and transparent; Fang s sound is anchored by an Asian sensibility that reflects his fondness for stringed and percussion instruments from China, Indonesia and Turkey
It is a moving and powerful testament to the exotic musical influences of his past and present. Maybe the best Forrest Fang release to date. Definitely a top ten ambient release for 2015. 2 people found this helpful.
Letters To The Farthest Star. The Wolf At The Ruins, Migration (reissue).
Forrest Fang's first instrument was the violin. In 1980-1981 he studied electronic music, composition, and jazz improvisation at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. At the same time, he learned to fiddle at regional fiddling festivals and gained an appreciation for stringed instruments such as the mandolin and mandola. He also appeared on Robert Rich's album Seven Veils. Fang's solo releases continued with The Blind Messenger in 1997 and Gongland in September 2000. He reunited with Rich for 2001's Bestiary and 2003's Temple of the Invisible, then teamed with guitarist Carl Weingarten for 2006's Invisibility. Following 2011's Unbound (under his Sans Serif side project), he issued Animism in 2012; Letters to the Farthest Star in 2015; and the double album The Sleepwalker's Ocean in 2016.

Letters To The Farthest Star Forrest Fang 2015 Projekt PRO312 (CD). LETTERS TO THE FARTHEST STAR is an ambitious and deeply personal dispatch: a far-reaching sojourn into the diverse ambient/electronic influences that helped shape the last three decades of Fang's unique "Fourth World" style. Fang began his tenth album with a challenge to himself: create a single work that acknowledged both past and present explorations while hinting at new avenues to come. Projekt opens the archives to bring back two formative ambient works. Originally released in 1989 and 1986 respectively, THE WOLF AT THE RUINS and MIGRATION have been out of print for over 20 years. They're from the period when he began his own fusion of electronics and traditional non-Western instruments into a modernist blend of electronics, ambient and world music.
