Soundtrack Magazine proudly commemorates the 20th anniversary of POSTMEN IN THE MOUNTAINS with the long-awaited original motion picture score in limited release. As the “Fifth Generation” director HUO Jianqi’s magnum opus, POSTMEN IN THE MOUNTAINS is not only the feature debut of renowned actors LIU Ye and CHEN Hao, it is also a perfect demonstration of implicity in the Chinese aesthetics. In 2001, when released in Japan, it was warmly-received with a record-breaking box office. It won the Best Picture at the 19th Golden Rooster Awards in China, as well as nominated for the Outstanding Foreign Language Film at the 25th Japanese Academy Prize.
The score is composed by the renowned Chinese musician WANG Xiaofeng. By sampling traditional Chinese ethnic music instruments, utilizing synthesizers, and transcending the limitation of bars, Wang created beautiful melodies with universality and thus building a robust collaboration with director HUO Jianqi.
This release is remastered and restored by renowned music engineer LI Yuesong (Shadow, Legend of the Demon Cat, Soul Mate etc.) from the original digital audio tape provided by composer himself.
Produced and approved by composer WANG Xiaofeng, this is a limited edition of 300 units.
