The 13th Heron

An album of space journey in collaboration with Mateusz Pulawski. (2020)

What’s the secret of herons?
- They always come back.

This album is a metaphorical journey set off from home, in search of the place to be. From boat on the sea to land, crossing the atmosphere; to the moon, the sun, and then further into space. Will herons come back this time?

The 13th Heron

What’s the secret of the 13th?
- That was a lunar mission that didn’t land on the moon as planned, it looped around and returned home instead.

The music on “13th Heron” is as eclectic as the story behind and the lyrics are sprawling. The main attitude behind the compositions and performance of YenTing and Mateusz is jazz, but the mood and style of the tunes goes from hip-hop and neo soul, through folk, rock, modern brazilian and world music, all the way to classical, serialism and, to top it all off, fusion of all the abovementioned genres.

《蒼鷺十三號》

在疫情肆虐的 2020 年,妍婷與波蘭吉他手 Mateusz Pulawski 兩人在自己家中,從無到有,合作完成了這張融合了爵士、neo soul、搖滾及古典等眾多音樂風格的《蒼鷺十三號》。這張專輯是一趟有野心的宇宙之旅。從家鄉島嶼啟航、抵達新的陸地、突破大地層、登月、追日,一路直達時空的盡頭。

但就像返回地球的十三號登月任務,鷺想遠飛,卻總是折返。
