My parents are from Taiwan but I grew up in Tokyo. So I was impressed by "Mado Kara Mieru". Do you set the lyrics before you created the melody or you started from the melody?
I don't know if it'd work but I am sending 3 mails in row.
Perhaps too many questions.
It happens both ways--sometimes I start with lyrics and write a melody around them, other times (like with Mado Kara Mieru) I write a melody first, then work with translators to find some words to fit them.
Oops! Submit something without asking anything yet in my previous mail. I have always wanted to be an orchestra conduct when I was little. My brother and I were exposed to all kinds of classic music since we were babies. He turned out to be a trumpet player and countertenor and I in the field of foreign service for 10 years and now in private sector. Recently, I am considering to go back to school for music study. But if you ask me if I'd like to be a pro. I really don't know if I can starting this late. Does it mean anything if I only study music for fun? I myself still sing the choir, play in the orchestra or even pipe organ in the service. Here are some questions after purchasing "calling all dawns"
What is your background of classic music?
I read from your interview that your parents felt frustrated that you didn't practice or so... What is giving you the most impact to your composing? I noticed you used a lot of voice. Also do you know all the languages in the works?
I have always wanted to see either of the albums I'm concert is there any chance of them being performed again?Christopher Tin responded on 01/28/2015
