The listening is easy all the way through flautist Ling Nieh's (聶琳) debut album, Sparkling Smiles (微笑星球). But the cheerful disposition of her music sounds genuine and nuanced and has a cinematic feel that appeals to a childlike innocence.

Nieh, a trained flautist and graduate of the Berklee College of Music, composed and produced the album’s 10 tracks, which draw from a broad emotional palette.

The album begins with a sense of discovery in Songs of Whales (鯨魚在唱歌), which is not as straightforward and pedestrian as it sounds on first listen. Nieh uses sound effects such as guitar with heavy reverb and piano to create a sense of space, but she doesn’t hammer them into her listeners. Instead the emotional impact comes from a joyous melody performed on the flute and saxophone.

For Mr Dale (戴爾先生) is a bittersweet tune, delivered bossa nova style by Nieh’s impressive team of studio musicians. A pipa (琵琶), a lute common in traditional Chinese music, serves as one of the main voices of the song, and its fluid, plucked sound enhances the flute's soaring melodies.

The tango mood of Ariadna (天使熱愛的生活) is played out in the intertwining harmonies of the flute, cello, piano and double bass. The energy is intense and passionate, yet the song remains light and playful, thanks to the lilting rhythms conceived by Nieh.

Renowned acoustic guitarist Dong Yun-chang (董運昌) makes an appearance on the album’s title track, a wistful, bossa nova-tinged number.

It's no surprise to read in the liner notes that Nieh composes for film and television, as many of the songs in this collection indeed play like soundtrack music.

This album won't resonate with listeners who prefer darkness in music, but there is a sophistication and emotional depth to Nieh's songs that make this worth a listen.
