Composers in the Western tradition have often found inspiration in the folk music of their own countries. The award-winning Taiwanese film and game composer Ying-Ting Luo is proud to announce to the general public the release of her new four track EP titled ‘Sky Suite’, this extended play is a masterpiece and a fulfilling look into the genius of its composer
Ying-Ting Luo started off as a child prodigy, studying piano at the age of 4 and added the flute which became her main companion at 8. Luo has this bubbly energy in her that made her a sight to behold. The music industry is currently growing at its fastest rate, artists from all over the world are relentlessly releasing track after track and Ying-Ting Luo, an artist already making waves in the industry isn’t just sitting back and watching.
Her new EP “Sky Suite” consists of four distinct movements, which reflect Luo’s experience growing up in her native land of Taiwan and incorporates a wide range of influences. The piece explores western classical themes, as well as eastern influences, making for a culturally diverse track that embraces different ideas and philosophies. As a result, the emotional scope of this remarkable suite, over the four movements, is really broad.
While the Sky Suite EP opening movement, “Fire of the Sky” has a very energizing, driving tone, often highlighted by impactful percussive elements, the next two tracks, “Garden of the Sky” and “Omen of the Sky”, demonstrate Luo’s unique ability to paint emotional overtones with a brisk stroke of sound that engulfs our environment. Last, but decidedly not least, “The Tears of the Sky” has a more melancholic twist. It is a touching way of closing this masterful work and a reminder of the mysteries of a rainy day.
