Album Notes
I wrote this music for a film by acclaimed director Deann Borshay Liem. Her intense, personal film unfolds like a mystery story. Deann is a Korean adoptee who came to the US as an eight-year-old girl in 1966, ostensibly with the name "Cha Jung Hee." She knew her name was not Cha Jung Hee, but she was told to keep her true identity a secret from her new American family, and soon she began to forget who she had been. But why had her identity been switched? And who was the real Cha Jung Hee? About ten years ago those questions began to gnaw at her, and she decided to go back to Korea to try to answer them. The result is a moving, searching film that satisfies and provokes on many levels.

The music is a true East-West marriage, with seed material both Korean and American. The wonderful artist Dohee Lee performed vocals and percussion, world-famous Jiebing Chen played erhu, and the score also features Kayagum (a Korean zither) as well as strings, harp, piano and other percussion and synthesizers.
