Profile
Forrest Fang's background was initially as a classical musician, until he came under the influence of the ambient music of Brian Eno and the subversive minimalism of Steve Reich, Philip Glass, and Terry Riley. Those influences are still strong in his music today, though he has also learned much from the study of Chinese classical music with the late guzheng master Zhang Yan and from the study of Japanese gagaku music with former Japanese court musician Suenobu Togi. Fang's style combines electronic and acoustic instruments in a way that is unlike any other artist.
