Troupe: Transition (band)
Date/Time: 8pm, Friday, 3 July 2015
Venue: Dongguan Yulan Theatre
Transition is a three piece British rock band creating music that touches the soul - a fusion of eastern and western musical influence. Their roots are in Bristol, U.K, but they combine this rock foundation with Asian rhythm and melody, producing music that inspires audiences from both sides of the globe. Transition’s three years living and performing in Taiwan had a profound effect on their lives and music, especially their song-writing. Their first mandarin song ‘Sorry My Chinese Isn’t so Good’ became an instant youtube hit. It gathered over a million views, and is now an anthem for all foreigners learning Chinese! Another landmark came in 2012 when the band were given the honour of writing the official theme song for the Taiwanese Olympic team for the London 2012 Games - the first ever foreign band to be given this opportunity.
Transition released their first ever mandarin album, ‘Kua Yue’ in December 2013. Arrangement and production included the involvement of several well known names: Jay Chou (arrangement advice), Wing Lo (lyrical assistance) and the band’s long- term friend, Sam Bell (U2, REM, Robbie Williams, Snow Patrol, Bloc Party, Editors). All this created an inspirational finish to the recorded sounds! ?Kua Yue? is a great showcase for the band’s unique fusion of east/west rock and stayed in the Taiwanese independent charts top 5 for most of December 2013! Bassist Niall Dunne decided that the end of 2013 was the time to say goodbye to the band, making this album an historic part of the band’s journey, but also ushering in a new era for Transition.
