Yunyu, musician and storyteller, has previously spoken to Dark Matter in 2011 and 2012 about her work. I’ve listed some foundational information about her here. In this post I recount attending a live event featuring Yunyu with a couple of other bands appearing in Melbourne.
Yunyu says this about ‘Butterflies’:
This is the third installment of Twisted Tales Butterflies. The tale is based on an old chinese fairytale the Butterfly Lovers
Twisted Tales is a transmedia project about what happens when fairytales come to our universe? Yunyu has collaborated with talented storytellers from various mediums including manga, animation, film, radioplay to create a multimedia extravaganza. Featuring works from Queenie Chan (Manga), The Common Ist (Animation), Hatch Films (Film), Brett Bower (Sand art), Coolshite on the Tube (radioplay – limited edition available on QUIRTz)
I just received an update from Yunyu with this information:
As a bonus the single gets released as an add-on to Kylie Chan and Queenie Chan’s novel Small Shen and released through Harper Collins. People who buy Small Shen get the track free.
