Description

"Deep Blue Sea" will be on Berklee alumna Jihye Lee’s first album with orchestra entitled April. The album will be released in May, 2016. Notes from the composer: April is co-produced by renowned composer and trumpet player Greg Hopkins, professor of Jazz Composition at Berklee, who is also a featured soloist. The orchestra's personnel are primarily Berklee faculty, including trumpeter Sean Jones and drummer Mark Walker. April was composed in response to the mysterious, yet poignant wreck, on 16 April 2014, of the Korean ferry Sewol, which sank en route from Incheon to Jeju, claiming the lives of 304 innocent passengers, most of whom were teenage children. This horrific and, for some, controversial event shocked the entire country, leaving its people haunted in the wake of this senseless tragedy. I had composed April Wind and Deep Blue Sea shortly before, and my apartment number was also 304; it was very strong coincidence giving me more conviction to bring April to life. Deep Blue Sea captures the movement of the water's dance, serene waves at night and majestic whirlpool underneath the deep sea. Although composed before the ferry actually sank, it turned out to be a song of the sea singing while holding Sewol Ho in its arms; you will hear the story the sea tells.
