Composing For Films: A Conversation With Lim Giong

Composing for Films: A Conversation with Lim Giong

Lim Giong


(In Putonghua)



Lim Giong’s award-winning scores are often the soul-defining element in the movies by Hou Hsiao-hsien, Jia Zhangke, Cheng Yu-chieh, Liu Jie, Bi Gan, and Midi Z. Since his thought-provoking mix of rock-and-roll and electronics for Goodbye South, Goodbye (1996), he has kept a distance from mainstream blockbusters and focused on creating imaginative scores for independent movies. In 2015, Lim won the Cannes Soundtrack Award for his work in Hou’s martial art film The Assassin.

With movie excerpts, Lim Giong will discuss his creative concepts and collaboration with the directors. Now a devoted buddhist, Lim will also share his thoughts on life.

Speaker: Lim Giong 林強
