Here are two new collaborations: an original piano instrumental by Jessica Yip and a cover version of Vance Joy’s Riptide by Daphne Choi. I helped them record the songs and create the videos.
The Mercury Tale by Jessica Yip
We continue our free background music series of Short Themes for Intros and Outros with this flowing 53-second piano instrumental by Jessica Yip. She also composed the song Somewhere Deep in the Sea, so if you like The Mercury Tale, do drop by and listen to her other song.

Cover of Riptide by Daphne Choi
Original composition by James Keogh, aka Vance Joy (2013); Vocals, piano and arrangement by Daphne Choi (2015). Note: this is not part of the background music series.
This is a lyrics video of Daphne Choi’s cover of Riptide by Vance Joy. I really love Dapne’s voice. This is the latest song in our series of Original Songs and Covers by Students. She didn’t want to appear in the video itself, so we produced a lyrics video instead. The purpose of this series is to encourage students to develop their talents in music (Daphne is the first school alumni member to participate in the series).
Of course, as the composition is copyrighted, we cannot include this recording in the free background music series.
