Currently Writing To: End Titles – Rachel Portman (Joy Luck Club)

I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather lately, so I’ve been listening to softer music. The Joy Luck Club is such a powerful movie for me. I can relate to it so much. The music is just as emotional and moving. It certainly helps when writing sad scenes.

It blends Chinese and western instruments gorgeously. The Chinese influence lends to its melancholic tones. It’s stunning.

It evokes a sense of longing, of something missing. And yet this hope for the future. Complex and beautiful.

  1. Hope you feel better 😦 I always write to techno. I think your choice in music probably plays in to the etherial nature of your writing. Maybe I’d glean a bit more dark-whimsy if I listened to your playlist 🙂
