Einige Worte von Forest Fang zu diesem Album.
For fans of: electronic, ambient & fourth-world soundscapes.
Composer and recording artist Forrest Fang refined his dynamic hybrid style of composition over the past four decades, expanding upon his roots in progressive music, minimalism, textural ambient, and the traditional musics of Asia. Drawing on his deep knowledge of sound creation and manipulation, he uses the studio like a separate instrument to create distinctive, alluring and otherworldly atmospheres. With captivating approaches to sound creation, his latest Projekt album FOREVER CASCADES presents a series of intricately-layered sonic vignettes and impressionistic soundscapes inspired by shoreline walks over the last year.
“Though my walks near the San Francisco Bay were initially a way for me to clear my head,” says Fang, “I also found myself drawn to the cycles and cadences of tides and aquatic life that shifted gradually from season to season. I was seeking a similar underlying cadence or pulse in these pieces that would evolve over time.”
The album’s opening piece, “Four Points West,” sets the scene with sustained and relaxed electronic tones suggesting vast open spaces. The trail begins with the atmospheric piece, “Circling the Eternal Lake,” that combines treated piano, gamelan, and hypnotic electronic textures. A lively piece, “The Clockmaker,” follows, combining acoustic and electronic strings, and a pulsing synthesizer.
