Press Kit

“Decorated with sophisticated field recordings and inventive production techniques, The Bridge in The Mountain's Hands (A Travelog) is a snapshot of a young artist successfully developing his sensibilities and talents in environmental ambience and candid acoustic balladry.”

No Transmission

“I'm liking this blend of warm electronics & Asiatic acoustic instrumentation with its almost New Age vibes. It's a bit of an album anomaly as the rest of the tracks flirt around singer songwriter & folk rock genres, but I have to admit to being drawn to it as it's a rare slice of underground Chinese music infiltrating the West.”

The Slow Music Movement

“Combining Chinese folk music, ambient, & spoken-word poetry, Haotian has made a gorgeous, enveloping travelogue.”
