This project is to forge my original style of music, combine my cultural and musical influences with other students’ talents on the Berklee Valencia campus. I included four original songs in this project. All of them are written in Mandarin lyrics, however, influenced by different genres. It was inspired by Chinese traditional music, jazz, contemporary pop, and R&B music. I learned a lot about music technology production and got to explore more possibilities for my original music. I also had a great collaboration with students here in Berklee Valencia and in China. This project was presented in recordings. I hope this project will be released when I go back to China and can inspire people.
