not that i've heard much of it myself, maybe on some movie soundtracks liek crouching tiger, hidden dragon, hero & the house of flying daggers

now besides the soundtracks of these 3 movies, have you got any recommendations? uuh and if you know any electronic music with chinese influences i'm all ears..

also, if you get your hand on the Jean-Michel Jarre live in China (erh, about 6 months ago, I guess), he is an electronic music genius, has built several instruments and composes very world-influenced music. some of the most creatie things i ever heard but for the chinese live show he mixed some of his old stuff along with some traditional chinese instruments to give it a local feel. the best live show in the world (except for the occasional speech in-between the tracks). enjoy

It a mix of newer and older stuff, only reworked for the occasion last year, he has about 100 live chinese musicians on stage all playing traditional chinese instruments, really amazing stuff. Not too familiar with the one 20 years ago though, this one he played in the Forbidden City and Tien'amen square.

I also had the old album, must have been out around 1980 it had a black redish mask on the cover and is my favourite Jarre album.

Check out Forrest Fang. He's got a unique style and combines electronic with traditional chinese and world music. I would equate him to the chinese version of Steve Roach/Robert Rich/Vidna Obmana if you are familiar with their music.

I have the "folklore" CD on cuneiform, which I would highly recommend, and there is also a good selection of his material on the projekt label.
