Imagine a new level of style blending that can give rise to a new dimension of musical category: an ultra-modern, sumptuous orchestral texture laced with the blended mixture of exotic elements and the ultra-edge industrial, hand-crafted sound design features re-define the new boundaries of the genre that is traditionally characterized as contemporary instrumental music. Encompassing a mixed flavor of epic film scoring scene and exotic elements of world music, molded with a rhythmical groove, Yang Zhang is a modern-day, blended style, multi-genre music composer and producer, pushing the boundaries with her unique, self-created contemporary instrumental genre for a broader audience.
“And yet, the concept doesn’t stop here; in its true sense, style blending also brings a sense of emotional cognition with different levels of dimensions,” explained Yang Zhang, a Los Angeles-based award-winning composer and music producer. She is also an Emmy music peer voting member and won the best original music at the 2016 Montreal “Views of the World Film & Music Festival.” She has announced her self-titled debut album on Mercury Orbit Music, out on August 23, 2021, and is available here.
The collection of ten musical compositions was composed, produced, and mixed by Yang Zhang, with the finest orchestral players’ recordings during the COVID-19 pandemic. “The state of mixed emotional cognition also goes beyond the limit of your new emotional experience, reflecting a similar experience of the extreme blended style in musical language.”
In conjunction with the announcement, Yang Zhang released her latest music video, “The Recall of The Fallen Empire,” from the album. In the music video, Yang Zhang notes, “It’s a modern touch of fallen empire impression, both in the futuristic scenario and the ancient scene, the revival of mixed emotions interconnects this timeless journey.”
“I want people to listen to the album as a whole journey of emotional exploration, pushing your limits to embody a new concept of epic emotion when traversing your territory of emotional cognition. The ultimate goal was to inspire listeners by bringing the integrity of style blending, intellectually and emotionally, to explore a new dimension of emotional cognition with their timeless internal journey.”
The outstanding quality of Yang Zhang’s technique and conceptual musical viewpoint sets her apart. This collection and concept, in many aspects, will establish the artist as a force to be reckoned with. She is presenting a new, significant, modern-day composer/music producer in her unique, self-created categories, with the power and talents to infiltrate popular culture.
