xialolu guo's she, a chinese, with an original score composed and played by john parish has been on the festival circuit, winning the golden leopard (best film) at the locarno film festival. the unmistakable musical signature of parish runs throughout, fragile and powerful pounding drums, banjos and drones. a must have for both fans of the film, xialolu guo and especially fans of john parish. the 13 parish tracks sit delicately alongside punk-rock songs of chinese bands like muma, hang on the boxall rounded off with an early track by fiest. at times melancholic this soundtrack mirrors the film by telling stories of leaving and longing. john parish is a british musician and producer best known for his work with singer and songwriter pj harvey. they released their second joint album a woman a man walked by in 2009 which reached no.25 in the uk chart while receiving widespread critical acclaim. he has worked on many film soundtracks as well as working with a range of other artists and projects such as co-writing the eels album souljacker (2001), producing artists from sparklehorse to tracey chapman as well as recording and touring his own material released by thrill jockey.
