Ol_ In the opening scene of Millennium Mambo, Shu Qi somewhat personified the climax before the distressing collapse of the art of film-making.
Twenty years later, the fact that Lim Giong cannot release his own original track due to copyright issues is also unfortunate.
Or when I was still in the mood for films.

Paul Crary Such an important and unique project. Amazing music. The muse of being a pure person is always so elusive yet so tangible. This album serves as a good reminder of that imo.

In the iconic opening scene of Hou Hsiao Hsien’s Millennium Mambo (2001), the actress Shu Qi glides through a tunnel. Her hair slides across her face as she looks left, right, back, forward, then back again as Lim Giong’s “A Pure Person” begins to play. Her life is broken, but in that moment, she escapes - there is no pain. There is no sense of past, present, or future - she exists as a pure person within all three.

This album seeks to understand what it means to be a pure person. Through new melodic and philosophical interpretations of Lim Giong’s original track as well as one new track from Lim, A Pure Person contains the past, present, and future. Created with the purest of intentions, please enjoy with the purest of intentions.

在候孝賢導演的電影《 千禧曼波 》中,那指標性的第一幕是女主角舒淇漫步於天橋長廊上,正當她左顧右盼,向後向前又再向後看時,髮絲散落在臉龐,此時,林強的《單純的人》開始播放,電影中女主角的生活雖然破碎,但在那一瞬間,她超脫了。沒有痛苦,沒有過去、現在和未來。她存在一個三者合一的單純境界。

這張專輯旨在了解成為一個單純的人意味著什麼。藉著新的旋律和哲學思維來詮釋原版林強創作的《 單純的人》,這其中也包含了一首林強的新作。這新的《單純的人》橫跨了過去、現在和未來。從單純的心出發,也請用單純的心來感受。
