如今，鄭宜農以一個終於完整的姿態，在充滿厭世感的當今，堅守著填補每一個聽者身而為人，與身俱來的孤獨之嚮往。持續著敏感詩意的詞曲風格，但她想說、想讓大家聽見的，卻是有別以往，超越了自身的群體意志，那是人最基本的情感需求，無法以形式定義，趨向根本的感受投射。也因此，堅持著每一首歌的對話對象，都不會只是情人、朋友、愛人，而是「人」這種生物本身。我們可以說，《給天王星》是一張更趨近生命本質的作品，而其所建構的形象，也是鄭宜農走過這三十年歲月，終將走向的姿態 - 一個永遠不會為簡單的辨識方法停下腳步的思想者。

Chalaw is a young Pangcah man passionate about music. Growing up near Hualien on Taiwan's east coast, he started playing the guitar at the age of 6, drums at the age of 11, and was working as a sound engineer by the age of 20 in taipei city. A love of music has always been a constant motivating force for Chalaw, but at the same time he has never forgotten that the blood of the
Pangcah flows through his veins, and he retains a sense of duty as a Pangcah aboriginal. So, at age 36, determined to find a way to combine these two important influences in his life, Chalaw quit his
job, and returned to his hometown of Ganshujiao in Hualien County to make music true to his life experiences. He picked up his guitar and composed songs based in part on a deep feeling for nature
and the world around him. At the same time, he also examined the challenges in his own life and the tensions that exist between younger generations of Pangcah people and the traditional way of
life of the Pangcah. Chalaw is not just a singer-songwriter – he is also a documentarian of sorts, using music to record and preserve the disappearing memories of his people.
