FORREST FANG
Forrest Fang's Sans Serif: Unbound
CD, Projekt, 2011
"Unbound" is the second release of Sans Serif, aka Forrest Fang, of which the ambient music was assembled from an assortment of lost and found microscopic sounds as source material.

As Mr Fang further explains The Sans Serif project is his personal tribute to minimalism. For each piece, he had stripped the sound down to certain tones and sonic elements that reappear, with variations, on a much larger scale. The processed elements are the "clouds" in each piece's sonic landscape that gradually shift from one end of the landscape to the other.

Well,"Unbound"(again featuring the impeccable cd-mastering of Robert Rich) offers a beautiful kaleidoscope of soft shimmering textures and imaginary sound paintings which will be appreciated by listeners of slow lane music. Its warm and gentle flowing ambience of subtle sphere-scapes and mesmerizing psychoacoustics smoothly shape-shift.

Fang's abstract minimalism tells an introspective story of its own that never fails to fascinate, smoothly rising and falling during the journey. "Unbound’s" morphing, large-scale ambient soundscapes beautifully mirror the depths, layers and dimensions of intrinsic beauty. Nice going, Mr Fang!

P.S. As a thank you to his fans, the artist is also offering a new piece for free download on his own website. It’s called "The Unbound Protoplasm", is an ambient deconstruction of elements from all five of the pieces on "Unbound".
