A passion that cannot be matched.An emotion that cannot be faked.Within the TMSK walls.The songs of our ancestors.Will be revisited with the joys and sorrows of today.
All cultures should have a sound to call their own.Yet,Through cultural exchange between east and weat,Our sound has been muted.Under these untintentional circumstances,The revivalists of Chinese Liuli art Chang Yi and Loretta Hui-Shan Yang,Along with famed Taiwanese film composer Zhang Hongyi,Have teamed up to breathe new life into folk music through TMSK.In combining a piece composed and arranged by Zhang Hongyi and a piece from the TMSKCompetition of Chamber Music Composition in Traditional Chinese Music.
"Music is joy,Joy in music-The Sound of TMSK Folk"is born.We hope for this album to be the spark that ignites the flame,The creation of an original yet personal sound to call our own,Bringing beauty of music back into our everyday lives.
The TMSK BAND
Xin Tian Di Plaza,Shanghai by night-crowds moving to the music,illuminated by the glow of a bustling.Everyday,save Sunday and Monday,the TMSK Band performs a blend of traditional Chinese folk and contemporary Western sounds to showcase the new sound of China.
The Band came together five years ago,performing traditional Chinese folk music including Pingtan and Kunqu.Throught trial and error and unwavering passion,they have become what they are today innovators of the Chinese modern sounds. The TMSK Band has adopted the theme from the film JADE LOVE,reworked it to a modern rock beat,and adopted it as theirsignature piece.It is a stylistic and playful rendition,breathing new life into a classic.
