FM3 - 禅房 - Chan Fang

October 26th, 2010

Aural bliss in a see-thru box! The all-new, third-gen Buddha Machine from Christiaan and Zhang.


Pure, crystal-clear melody. Four extended-play loops. Advanced 12K audio quality and “deja-vu” translucent styling make Chan Fang the freshest Buddha ever!


Chan Fang, which translates as “Zen Room,” sees FM3 swap drones and tones from their first two Buddha releases for unadulterated classical loops.

All tracks were composed and performed on the Qin, a seven-string zither revered as the grand-daddy of Chinese instruments. Deep sonorous tuning and complex harmonic overtones give the Qin a contemplative and soothing voice.

Turn on Chan Fang and soundtrack your life. Tweak the pitch to match your mood. Pair it with another Buddha Machine for a pocket orchestra to enlighten your morning commute, long bath, thinking, reading, relaxing, romancing…

Chan Fang will be shipping early December 2010. Order yours now!

USA orders will begin soon.
