World Premiere CD Release. Limited Edition.
8-page CD booklet with liner notes by Daniel Schweiger.
In collaboration with Enka, Music Box Records presents the premiere CD release of the original soundtracks of Chinese director Larry Yang's two feature films composed by Nicolas Errèra (The Butterfly, Adoring): Mountain Cry (2015) and My Other Home (2017).
Adapted from the award-winning novel by Ge Shuiping, Larry Yang's acclaimed 2015 Chinese film Mountain Cry is both mystery and love story as the blame for the explosive death of a mute's husband falls upon the wastrel bachelor Han Chong (Ziyi Wang). Mountain Cry's lush score was recorded at Angel Studios in London, with the film premiering as the closing presentation at South Korea's Busan International. With his poetic score, French composer Nicolas Errèra powerfully speaks to these depths and heights of human nature, as communicated in melody both intimate and emotionally sweeping.
Errèra's second collaboration with Yang titled My Other Home is about former NBA player Stephan Marbury based on his journey to China to find a new, winning destiny as the star player for The Beijing Ducks. Errèra's tender melodies bring Marbury new hope, the melancholy tone of piano, violin and a subtle electronic beat rising with noble, brass determination that makes for this winningly inspirational sports film about team spirit.
The 8-page booklet features liner notes by Daniel Schweiger, discussing the films and the scores, based on new comments by Nicolas Errèra and Larry Yang.
