Fibla (spa.RK) and Arbol (Emilii Records), perhaps two of the most important artists in Spanish electronica scene, present their common effort: the album "Bu San", a perfect blend of electronica, soundtrackism and neoclassica, originally inspired by the the almost silent movie of Taiwanese director Tsai Ming-Liang, “Goodbye, Dragon Inn”. Two years ago, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of BAFF (Barcelona Asian Film Festival), Fibla and Arbol accepted the proposal to create a new soundtrack for the almost silent “Goodbye, Dragon Inn”, to be performed with a live screening of the movie. The show was successfully premiered in Barcelona Apolo on may 2008, and it has been performed in Seminci / Valladolid Film Festival, Territorios Digitales Sevilla, CaixaForum Madrid and SonarSound New York. “Bu san” is a love letter to an evanescent form of art that distills a very special form of magic. This album is not the live recording of the show but the studio recreation of that music, adapted to be a perfect home listening album that works perfectly without the movie pictures. Somehow, the warmth and the feeling of the live show are still there in a record that grows with each listen.

A perfect movie for which Fibla and Arbol have worked together creating an original soundtrack with the accompaniment of violinist Sara Pérez and where they used xylophones, percussion, laptop, ocarina, piano, glockenspiel and even a Chinese harp. Miguel Marín aka Arbol and Vicent Fibla shared the 50% of the composition in all the tracks, a four-hand work that incorporates elements of the two artists and heightens the possibilities of each one. Sara Pérez contributes with the nostalgia and melancholy of her violin to the final work where melodies are paired with synthetic rhodes and magnificient strings; the sound of an old projector lightens the loneliness of the characters in the movie; the omnipresent rain in Taiwanese weather is the perfect background for a not corresponded last dance…
