Over the course of seventeen solo albums and three plus decades, Bay-area ambient/electronic musician Forrest Fang has become known for his surrealist blend of electronically-transformed ethnic instruments and minimalist aural environments. Combining gently layered drones, slow-moving piano themes, violin, as well as subtle Eastern string, wind, and percussive elements, Fang's pieces reflect his uniquely personal universe of influences, mysterious objects and undefined phenomena.A 'Fata Morgana' is a special form of mirage that makes objects appear to float in air. On Fang's latest Projekt album, "The Fata Morgana Dream," the dream takes the form of a liquid world of complex sonic images explored via heavily-processed instruments and expansive ambiences. "For this album," Fang reflects, "I created a series of atmospheric pieces that are connected by a nocturnal and free-floating spirit that allows different instruments, treatments and effects to interact in a malleable space. The overall mood comes from somewhere between sleep and wakefulness, where the familiar might reappear in an unfamiliar way because of the dreamlike state."
