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.
