FORREST FANG



THE BLIND MESSENGER

The Blind Messenger, Forrest's seventh release, can almost be considered a summation of all the work he has done over the last 15+ years. Unlike his last few releases, you can hear more of his roots as an "electronic" musician, while he has simultaneously also integrated the many ethnic instruments & non-Western classical music forms that he has been seriously studying since the mid 80's. This is a very special & mature work which we think will find great ressonance with fans of modern unclassifiable musics such as Jon Hassell, Robert Rich, & Terry Riley.
