My favorite music composer, CinCin Lee have returned with a more amazing album! I adore her travel music ever since I saw her music documentary, Fantasia of Tuscany. She created a scenic portrait combining music and photographs and savor a soothing music journey in Italy.
In her latest masterwork, she has immersed herself in her traveling experiences to create this album along her music notes, thoughts and photographs. Story Island is a combined music and video documentary about 14 ordinary people reflecting on their careers and families in various parts of Taiwan. The album comes with three short films about these individuals, who include farmers, hostel-keepers and aboriginals. Themes such as simplicity, harmony and warmth are as abundant in the film profiles as in the music. This intimate picture is the work of composer CinCin Lee, winner of the 2005 Golden Horse award for best film music. To create Story Island, she spent three years travelling around Taiwan picking up folk tunes and the feeling of life at grass-roots level.
Now here is Part one - Northern Taiwan, let's enjoy:
