Each power dominates emotions through the rhythm flow of the heart! Like an infant listening to the heartbeat of the mother, pounding the hope of life and joy, yet resting and peaceful. Beat, rhythm of veins, pattern of breath, sounding melody of sleep. Beat of rhythm is the language, simple but powerful, rough but clean, build the strings toward our heart. Some say the power of the beat creates the roar of broke-back mountain, breath of mind in the universe, discipline and conquer. Some say the power comes from the breath of the moon and the sun, the pile of snow under the ice caps, waving and shaking. The truth seems to fade from the chatter of the hummingbirds and the rainfall on the exquisite banana in white dew, transformed into insects' harmony and horseshoes' tumbling to carry on the flow of the melody in rhythm. The beauty of the beats, displaying an integrating dialogue mixes natural grand strength with mankind quality; creating from the beginning toward the ending of a wonderful beauty sense experience. Beat, the language proves the worth of rhythm above all in variety, strikes through the human heart in the most simple and tender recipe.
This album is a classic and a mixture of rhythm and melody. It followed the success of the previous album Rhythmize Heartstrings and inherited the key refinery after two years of hard work from Rhymoi Music. The main character is still the beauty of the heart-pounding rhythm, but the performance in each single beat has a big step toward the international stage.
Three years after carrying on a preliminary round of exploratory discussions, twelve sky-rocketing and ground-breaking master pieces had been born out of the water. The famous composer Mr. Wang Fujian who produced the record Poems Of Thunder, traveled the world during the past three years. With his completely devoted heart and extremely hard work, he found the way to express his whole life experience and artistic belief by composing these ten totally original drum masterpieces.
The idea is to achieve complete inspiration from full abstract into totally reality, thus the ten pieces delivered by taking the scenery after ten original poems. The reality display is broken through by the heartfelt drum beat and melody. The scenery from the original and classical poems is fililng the album with lively perfection and a natural beauty aspect to enojy the reality.
"Golden Spear Steel Horse" comes from the Tang Dynasty poetry. The warfair and mankind's strength in the poem is presenting by the harmony of Chinese bass drum and cymbals. The powerful battle horses and the pride of spear soldiers are converted into a heart-breaking and tear-dropping scene by the Chinese traditional instruments, GuQin and Xiao. "Yellow River Praise" requires full imagination. The combination of percussions builds the mood, and creates the motion in rhythm, to present the roaring and sky-ruling affection from the yellow river. The natural and wild timbre of Suona (Chinese trumpet) is giving life to the yellow river, filling with the smell of yellow dusts and the praise of each fighting soul. "Dragon Boat Race" presents the crowded scene during the race. From the audience to dragon boat athletes, all displayed by the rhythm in front of our eyes. "Beijing Opera Show" is a fine creativity by using the marking time Beijing opera drum, cymbals and the big and small sized gongs all from teh traditional Beijing opera to combine with the background humming from men's deep voice and enchanting Erhu. This has showed Chinese styled creation in music which is truly remarkably joyful to listen to. "Rest In Motion" is definitely a classic. The flamenco rhythm guides you through a fantasy and heart-felt scenery.
