about

Recorded in January 2015 in PK14's Yang Haisong studio in Beijing, Bridges shows all the different possibilities of the electric zhongruan designed by Djang San by using the instrument in many different styles of music such as grunge, folk, experimental, jazz, electronic, punk, and many more.
The idea behind the album is to try to create a bridge crossing cultural boundaries through music.
This is also a bridge beyond cultures, a bridge between music styles, that allows the listenner to travel in space and time, from East to West and from past to future.
The zhongruan, a 2500 years old ancient instrument, has never been used in such a unique, complete and extensive way.
