tcm 009 HOW DEEP IS THE OCEAN , Original Soundtrack Composed by Pur-Dur
This is Pur-dur's first releasefollowing his album "Ocean Ho-hai-yan," and his first soundtrack.
This soundtrack features guitar music by Pur-dur. He uses his guitar to evoke the sounds and feelings of the ocean. Since much of the film is shot beneath the ocean, rather than articulating syllables in his vocals, Pur-dur humms, approximating singing underwater.
In addition to Pur-dur's guitar, this album also includes a traditional Taiwanese song with substituted aboriginal dialect lyrics, a solo saxaphone track, and the sound of the waves of Orchid Island.
"How Deep is the Ocean" is a 16mm documantary. Director Tang took two years to become integreated with an Orchid Island village, and documents the life of a local youth, Si-Mamnno
In the film Si-Mamnno is 40 years old. He left Orchid Island in his teens to seek employment on the mainland of Taiwan, and at 17 entered the world of organized crime and gang wars.
At 34 he had a stroke, from which his doctor said he would never recover. Following local custom, the people of his village arranged to bring him home once more before his death.
Unable to move of his own volition, Si-Mamnno sat alone on his porch every day. But the sight of the ocean a kilometer away stirred something within him, drawing him towards it. He slowly began moving towards the sea. At first he could only take a few stumbling steps before collapsing, but after a year of effort he crossed the distance and entered the water.
