      From out of the atmospheric backwaters of the World Music genre flows the
      fascinating soundworlds of Forrest Fang. His work combines native flutes,
      eastern strings and exotic percussion with synthesizers and digital
      processing to produce a music for our world but not entirely of it. His CD
      PHANTOMS (70'10") opens up and explores a minimalistic region of music
      where expressions are made through the gradual motion of textures and
      timbres - all churning beneath cavernous reverberation. PHANTOMS' eight
      tracks move between static drones and metallic cross-modulations to the
      tumultuous soundscapes of nocturnal ambience - where rhythms seem based
      more in ancient ceremonies than in computer software. Exceptional in its
      dark hued subtlety this work transports the listener to a cyber-jungle
      nowhereland. Alternating between the dreamy and the experimental, the
      primitive and the futuristic, this music conjures up an imaginary
      environment ruled by mythic lost tribes, technology and the vast continent
      of Forrest Fang's dark vision.

      Please tune into STAR'S END this weekend for music from
      multi-instrumantalist Forrest Fang and his forthcoming CD PHANTOMS
