一起聽聽收錄在王若琳創作專輯 “博尼的大冒險” 裡歌曲 “The adventures of Bernie the schoolboy"
In order to write music as Baroque Period, I have reviewed some technics of Bach Invention and Sinfonia.
For me, Bach's music is easy to digest. It is pure and clean because there is no tangled desire.
Despite the way all the melodies go is complicated, they actually response to each other seamlessly.
No matter musical sparks come from vertical or horizontal directions, or no matter it is a short appeared phrase or overlapping long phrases, the feeling is always delightful! This is the charm of Baroque Music. Really happy and grateful having the chance to arrange songs in Baroque Style and get it recorded in the album, The adventures of Bernie the schoolboy. Let's listen to the arrangement of "The adventures of Bernie the schoolboy" !

Sometime Ago is a warm/lovely/relaxing Jazz Waltz.
We all know that Jazz is a very intellectual music. However, sometimes we just want to hear something light, but of course, always with nice melody rich harmony! We are simply looking for something easy to resonate with our hearts 🙂 right?
Invitation is one of my favorite Jazz Standard. I find it's pretty ...sexy!
I have played it many many times, and also recorded it in my debut Jazz album "Jazz Without Time Zones". However, I never got tired of playing it. There is always something amazing coming out!Like this time, all the sudden, I improvised by my left hand 🙂
Arranging Music is fun and extremely creative!
The way I arrange this song is to imitate Bach's style, then write like INVENTION & SINFONIA.
The feature of INVENTION & SINFONIA is that 2 or 3 voicings flow gracefully and harmonically.
I challenged myself to write music like them.
It feels great to play my own arrangement.
The composer is Joanna Wang and this song "Only Child" is recorded in her album "The adventures of Bernie the schoolboy" (distributed by SONY music)
In the recording, the sounds are made by synthesizers which create fantasy and vintage vibe.
However, in this video, the pure piano sound creates the classic Baroque vibe.
