Sans Serif (Forrest Fang) update
« on: December 09, 2010, 01:13:59 PM »
Just a very brief update regarding my music:

I have completed a second Sans Serif project called "Unbound" that will be released on Projekt and has a tentative release date in May 2011.  I have been working with fellow forumite Mark Mushet on cover images, and will getting together with Robert Rich this weekend for the mastering.  It is a soundscape-oriented album ( 5 pieces) that I hope is a further refinement of the tonal environment approach of my first Sans Serif release ('Tones for La Monte') on Hypnos Secret Sounds.

I have also recorded a new track or two for my next album project under my own name, that will be more rhythm-based.

Forrest

And so far it's sounding delicious!

Though the official release date of my latest CD ("Unbound," under the project name of "Forrest Fang's Sans Serif") is not until mid-May, Sam of Projekt gave me the OK to mention that the CD is now available directly from Projekt and that the digital version is also available via iTunes.

The direct link to the Projekt page (which includes mp3 previews) is:

http://www.projekt.com/projekt/product.asp?sku=PRO00257

I've also created a new five-minute piece for free download called "The Unbound Protoplasm" that is an ambient deconstruction of elements from all 5 pieces from the CD.  That piece is on the audio page of my website (www.forrestfang.com).

Thanks for the greatly appreciated support and encouragement.

Forrest

That sounds great! I have to get this.
Never regret money spent on old books, old dogs or old friends.

Thanks, Mike, I plan to do another one for Hypnos, I promise!

Harry, Richard and Paul, let me know what you think.  It's a little different from what I usually do, though it's a continuation of my first Sans Serif project on Hypnos Secret Sounds.

No problem, Forrest -- Hypnos can share! Many of our most successful releases have been by artists who work with multiple labels.
