rikm On this early release from the eighties, Forrest Fang explores the musical possibilities of the emerging electronic music movement paired with organic instruments to craft soundworlds and aural landscapes that demonstrate a developing vision which would ultimately lead to his present work.

All of the elements of Fang's sound are here in nascent form, growing, developing, and ultimately leading the way to the artist that he is today...

RICHARD ALMASI A fantastic collection of vintage electronica and contemporary classical music. In my opinion this is the most creative and innovative of Forrest Fang's work, especially in the way he has composed these pieces. Favorite track: Monsoon.

about

As part of its series of reissues of seminal works from ambient / progressive musician Forrest Fang, Projekt makes Fang’s second album, Some Brighter Stars, available digitally for the first time. First released in 1982, on this album Fang applies tape delay techniques and a minimalist sensibility to analog synthesizers and acoustic instruments such as violin and piano. Originally available on Fang’s Ominous Thud label in a limited vinyl issue of 300 copies, Some Brighter Stars has been newly remastered by ambient musician Robert Rich and includes a previously unreleased bonus track.

The artwork is by Mark Mushet, who has also provided for the artwork for Fang's Projekt albums, "Animism," "Unbound" (as Sans Serif), and "Phantoms."

What reviewers have said about Some Brighter Stars:

“Dark, mysterious and … complex … using tape loops, delays, and synthesizer improvisation, in addition to using piano, violin, mandolin, recorder and various percussion. What impresses immediately is the amount of depth and subtlety.” – OP.

“Rich textures and solid composition.” – Sound Choice.
