about

"Dreams of Blue Ocean" is the soundtrack to "Sun Moon Bay", a film about a crew of kids surfing in Hainan, a Chinese island located south of Guangzhou. The film is about their hopes and their dreams as they are facing challenges in their lives.

It's a beautiful film for which I have been asked compose the music.
I have gathered my experience as a musician to give some meaning to the music and to adapt to the mood of the film.

In these tracks, I've been using quite a range of Chinese instruments like the Pipa, the Ruan, a few flutes, percussions, and I have also explored the possibilities of electronic music.

I hope you'll like it, the film will come out in the next few months, a film not to be missed !

A few words from Jeremy Trylch and Emily Shen, the two persons who made this film happen:

« We started filming Sun Moon Bay in early 2013. We initially thought it was going to be a fairly straightforward film about the birth of surf culture in China, but very quickly realized the subject matter was far richer and more meaningful than we could ever have imagined. »

« It's a film about hope and despair, with the hope in the film being ultimately all the stronger for being hard-won. »

« In terms of the story arc, we could not believe our luck. The year and a half of filming took us from the point when the local village children began a surf training program to the eventual entry of the protagonist Huang Yingying in her first international surfing competition. »

« The film is as true and honest as we ourselves could make it. » « Having started out thinking we were making a film about the birth of surf culture, we have completed the process with a much stronger film that deals with major themes, done in a moving way, with attractive characters and a beautiful story arc. We could not be happier. »
