Chinese-American multi-instrumentalist Forrest Fang’s initial instrument was the violin. In 1980-1981 he examined electronic music, structure, and jazz improvisation at Washington School in St. Louis, MO. At exactly the same time, he discovered fiddling at local fiddling celebrations and obtained an understanding for stringed equipment like the mandolin and mandola. Fang’s initial records had been rooted in digital music and intensifying rock. His research of Chinese traditional music, with zheng (Chinese language zither) participant Zhang Yan from mainland China, resulted in a stylistic change that was noticeable on his 4th discharge, The Wolf on the Ruins (1989). After 1991, Fang examined gagaku (historic Japanese courtroom music) with imperial courtroom musician Suenobu Togi and gamelan with Balinese composer I Wayan Sujana. In 1993, Fang constructed music for the Balinese shadow movie theater creation of In Zanadu, that was granted a Citation of Quality through the International Puppetry Association. A few of this materials was rearranged and modified for his 6th launch, 1995’s Folklore. He also made an appearance on Robert Rich’s recording Seven Veils. Fang’s single releases continued using the Blind Messenger in 1997 and Gongland in Sept 2000.
