“it is another album.” - Joanna王若琳
Q: Do you have any rules in your music?
I like melody, chord and tempo. If you ask me what kind of music I’m making, I would say that it usually brings me either joy, sorrow or a heartfelt story that comes to my mind then I transform it into music.
Q: Since your debut, you’ve been labeled with a certain ‘Joanna’s Style Music’. What do you think about this label? Do you have any opinions
I’m getting use to it. (well…Just kidding ) I literally have no idea how people look at me. Therefore, I don’t know how I should guess about what my public image is.
Q: How do you think you create your music? Do you have a specific way?
It depends on how I feel to write a story or describe a character (even just compose melody) It’s all about the world of music I sink into or music with joy. I am in to the music that can inspire me which leads me down the path to create music this way.
Q: 《摩登悲劇 Modern Tragedy》, is new album has it any meaning for you?
It is another album
Q: People said you are the a ‘Rebellious Musician’. Do you any words for this title?
They also called me MC Costco Pizza. It’s a joke, no one calls me MC Costco Pizza. :(
Q: Whats your instrument of choice?
I don’t really play keyboard but I really like keyboard.
Q: Do you consider yourself a ‘pop star’ or do you define yourself as a different kind of musician?
But what is a ‘pop star’? What is pop music? If it’s ‘POP’ then it means it’s a thing which consistently changes.
