Tunes and Transcendence

'All of my songs are very personal and passionate, lyrically and vocally," says Lindsey Yung. "They address life's basic experiences of love, loss, death, and self-realization." Yung's musical career can be traced back to when she was a toddler, playing Ngana in a production of South Pacific that ran for two weeks at Starlight Bowl. "It was a wonderful learning experience, and I made money! That's pretty cool to land a paying gig at five. Of course, I was forced to put the money in an education savings account by my parents."

Later, when not busy earning two degrees from SDSU (philosophy and religious studies), Yung hit the local coffeehouse scene as a solo acoustic performer. She took a turn toward electronica after hooking up with local production duo Brainfire Technology (Chad Tuthill and Edgar Alminar), her newest CD Fusion furthering her experiment in pastoral computer pastiche. "The music has been called acoustic-electronica, and I don't mind that label at all," she says. "The songs are driven by acoustic guitar parts and accented with electronic elements from keyboards and Korgs."

WHAT'S IN YOUR CD PLAYER?

1. Ray LaMontagne, Trouble ("I've seen his name appear so many times as a favorite of artists I respect.")

2. Beck, Sea Change ("Its mood and feel put me in a reflective place, and I like to think.")

3. Tori Amos, The Beekeeper ("I love this album. I never get tired of the title track.")

4. The Eagles, Hell Freezes Over ("I recently found this album where it should never be, at the bottom of a storage box. I quickly put it in its right place, my CD player.")

5. David Gray, Life in Slow Motion ("An album hasn't moved me in a long time, but this one did it for me.")

DESERT-ISLAND DVDs?

1. The Last Unicorn ("Only the best cartoon ever. I loved it as a child, and I love it just as much as an adult.")

2. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind ("It's brilliant, and it has Jim Carrey in it. Enough said.")

3. The Sound of Music ("I love the innocence and purity of the characters, and of course I love the music.")

4. Beaches ("I am a chick, and therefore I need my chick flick.")

5. Napoleon Dynamite ("I don't care how annoyingly popular this movie got. A dance sequence to a Jamiroquai song? It doesn't get any better.")

SONGS YOU NEVER WANT TO HEAR AGAIN?

1. "Laffy Taffy," D4L

2. "Baby Mama," Holla Point

3. "Turn Me On," Kevin Lyttle

4. "God, Send Me an Angel," Amanda Perez

5. "Like You," Bow Wow

EARLIEST MEMORY?

"My mother used to play this [particular] children's tape for me each night at bedtime. I must have listened to that tape a million times...I used to love this one song called 'V.I.P.,' which was about encouraging self-esteem in kids. That tape stayed in the player until Safety Kids replaced it, which was a musical written for kids about drug-abuse resistance...I ended up performing in the musical in fifth grade, wearing my D.A.R.E. T-shirt."

WHO'S RIGHT ABOUT GOD, NIETZSCHE OR AQUINAS?

"This is somewhat of a false dichotomy for me. I'd say a little bit of both, but not all of either. There is something worthwhile to be learned from studying the works of both."

SOMETHING ABOUT YOU FEW WOULD KNOW OR GUESS?

"I love hawks. I think they are incredible creatures, and I take it as a sign of good luck when they can be spotted."
