Mandopop (Mandarin Pop)
Fun exercise and demo creation. Some notes:
- Unusual structure: Breaking of formulaic verse-chorus structure.
- Melodic compass within an octave… Challenge accepted.
- Unusual use of ancient Tang Dynasty poetry by Li Shang Yin.
- Fusion of:
- modern verses/lyrics with ancient poetry
- Sung melody with spoken poetry recitation
- East-West orchestration
Much thanks to Ms CHAN Yi Wen – she’s not a professional singer but was game enough to attempt this regardless. Nope not exactly commercial. But if you’re looking for unusual music, here it is. 🙂
