It is a special and exciting day for us today, and we´re thrilled to share with you 蔡健雅 Tanya Chua´s new song/music video «Strange Species»! Michael´s dark electronic arrangement is perfectly molded to Tanya´s wonderful song and beautiful longing vocals. Narrating the world we live in today, how alienated and distanced we´ve become in a seemingly cold technological world. How to find a way back again to the core, to oneself and people of the same kind.

Arranged: Michael Pfirrmann, 安棟
Additional recording– Drums Percussion: Quinn
Recorded at NRG Studio, North Hollywood, CA

We want to keep you informed, what is happening in the Lightshifters universe! This is another BIG NEWS for us: I (Michael) had the pleasure to arrange the song “Strange Species” for the award-winning Singaporean singer-songwriter Tanya Chua. My purpose has been to create an atmospheric electronic soundscape that fits to her inspiring lyrics and vocals. It turned out that this song has been chosen to be the first single from the new album! Wow… what a great honor!!
Tanya Chua, resided in Taiwan, has started to promote the release of her new album “Aphasia” with a YouTube clip – the album will be released on November the 13th. Enjoy some impressions from the recording- and mixing-sessions in Los Angeles and listen to a snippet of “Strange Species”!
