Wong Chia Chi’s theme – Lust Caution (色戒)

February 2nd, 2009 by Ah Doe

Remember the weird feeling that lingers in your mind after you finish this movie? Not only its plot, its soundtrack is depressing as well.

This is another beautiful written song by Alexandre Desplat. I should say that it sounds like Wong Chia Chi very much, as if something is always bothering her.

I personally like my transcription for this song very much. For the first time, I’ve added the pedalling signals in piano sheet to remind all players that echo is essential for this piece. But mind you, a dirty echo will screw the whole song up. So make sure you change pedal before transitting to another chord.

Some information about this song:

1) It’s in original key, i.e. D Minor
2) Chords included, so are the pedalling signs
3) Purely instrumental

I’ve done a piano sheet for Lust Caution theme song around one year ago right after its trailer was out, but that was not really enough. After watching the movie, I found out Wong Chia Chi theme song should be representating the whole movie instead of the previous one. If you like this movie, you will definitely like this piano sheet.
