This is the second part of Bridges, a double album dedicated to the electric zhongruan, an instrument created by Djang San.
Bridges part 1 and 2, as well as the former album Tofu électrique are based on an idea of an evolution of music. By modernizing ancient Chinese instruments through electrification, the goal is to change the fate of these instruments, and to use whats considered as the past to create new music for the present and the future. This is not only a cross over between past and future, this is also a cross over between musical styles and between World cultures and civilizations.
The goal of that music is to create new ideas and open the mind of the listener to new possibilities in culture and art.
As we live in a globalized economy, we also live in a more and more globalized culture. Globalizing culture doesnt necessarily mean destroying one for the benefit of another, it can also mean sharing points of views and integrate those cultures into one another.
All the songs on this album are played using the zhongruan at the center of each of the songs. In every song the instrument is put in different musical situations in order to create something new.
