Forrest Fang “…conjures an idealized world of sound – where Spacemusic, World Music, New Age and the Avant-Garde all share a common spirit, and sound connects everything.” – Star’s End introduction to an interview with Forrest Fang about Following the Ether Sun. Steve Roach Shadow of Time review in Italy’s Darkroom magazine (in Italian).
Black Tape For A Blue Girl Blood on the Snow review from The Noise Beneath The Snow. “The imagery presents itself herein as somewhat stark, yet still warm, perhaps in a dimly lit, intimate, privately held performance. Blood on the Snow is easily reminiscent of the days of Remnants of a Deeper Purity, perhaps mostly because of the presence of Oscar’s voice as well as the viola.”
Steve Roach’s Dreamtime Return included in this article, “32 Best Ambient Albums” at Optimistic Underground. “As a cohesive whole, the album folds in both electronic and natural sounds, from didgeridoos to huge synth pads to field recordings from the Australian outback. Steve Roach approaches the genre with spartan ideals, stripping the music down to its central essence and then amplifying that elemental spark into a massive conflagration.”
