Cicada brings such shimmering and positive energy to their ensemble playing on this new album - a beautiful celebration of our precious oceans - Rachel Grimes

Ocean is a collection of Cicada's most recent releases. Coastland depicts the west coast of Taiwan where flock of waterfowls fly over soft wetland and grey sea with countless factories in the backdrop. Light Shining Through the Sea surfaced from the Pacific Ocean, landed on the eastern coast and offshore islands. The deep blue ocean and rocky shore here built completely different sceneries and stories than the west coast.

The vast plain of westernTaiwan used to be farmlands. During the industrialization, the western coast has been suffering from the consequences of the economic growth. On the other hand, most parts of the East Coast Mountain Range remain untouched. However, the beautiful coast and ocean began to face the dilemma of environmental preservation and tourism development.

Ocean rises from the western coast and arrives the eastern coast through the East Coast Mountain Range. We dive deep into the Pacific Ocean to experience the rhythm and the irresistible power of the ocean. These songs took us to a journey to see ocean sunrise, to experience the liveliness and forces beneath the ocean. They are bathed in the sunshine, night breeze; they provoke youthful memories as well as thoughtful introspection. They have never ending stories to tell….

台湾を代表する室内楽アンサンブルCicadaが海をテーマとするニューアルバムをリリースします。Oceanは たくさんの工場を背景に、柔らかい湿地やグレートーンの海の上を無数の水鳥の群れが飛ぶ西海岸の風景を描いた「Coastland」、深い青色の海と磯が残る東海岸を描いた『Light Shining Through the Sea』というCicadaの2つの作品から選曲され、新たにリミックス・リマスタリングが施されています。

工業化された悪果を背負い、厳しい汚染を許すこととなった西海岸、狭くて長い縦谷と共に開発されていない豊かな自然と観光発展、環境問題の間のジレンマに苛まれる東海岸。ピアノ、ヴァイオリン、ヴィオラ、チェロ、ギターによる豊潤なアンサンブルが描くのは、海岸山脈を隔てて二つの異なる表情を見せる台湾の海の物語です。太平洋の海底に群れる魚や潮の流れの力強さをドラマチックに、時に繊細に表出するアンサンブル。他のモダン・クラシカル作品とは一線を画す開放的なミックスは、どこまでも遮ることのない光と海を表現するかのようです。クラシックの荘厳さ、躍動感溢れる演奏に深い叙情性を讃えたCicadaの音楽は海面にきらめく光、心地よい夜の風、賑やかな青春と自己との対話、海を通した豊かな物語を感じさせてくれるでしょう。
