世界的声音(九种语言演绎经典 洛杉矶多元文化展现)

世界的声音
The Global Voice
六位女伶重唱传世名曲 以九种语言描绘世界听觉风景
Six divas revisit classic songs, portraying an auditory adaptation of the world in nine different languages.
还记得吗?湛蓝的天空中,怡然翩飞的鸟儿的笑语。星光荡漾的海面上,起伏不定的浪涛的吐息。午后的雨,花瓣上水滴的舞蹈。吹过秋天的风,飘落的枯叶簌簌低唱。人类的语言,在最初诞生的时候,或许便是对自然韵律的摹仿。这些轻柔的,强烈的,清亮的,深沉的遍布了整个星球的声音,在无比漫长的时光中,逐渐演化成为了情人间的私语,母亲怀抱中哼唱的歌谣,友人的问候,朦胧中响起的心灵之声。
世间有千百种语言,便有千百种声韵与节奏的和谐组合。它们如同没有旋律的民谣,以独一无二的听感,表达着将其孕育的土地的风格气质。发源自北方的德语,带着山岳与森林的深沉。诞生于南欧而又传播到美洲大陆的西班牙语,则兼具犹如艳阳的明媚动人和宛若舞蹈的随性洒脱。清新细腻而谦和的日语,映照出古朴而素丽的东洋列岛风光。由太平洋岛屿所孕育的菲律宾语,则令人联想到东西方文化交融所造就的南洋风情,以及椰影下的碧波白沙。还有圆润柔滑而略带浑厚的法语,富于诗韵与意境之美的汉语、自然简约而又不失优雅的英语、如乐歌般抑扬顿挫的意大利语、绵软细腻而悠扬的葡萄牙语,都以别具特色的音律,构成了不同国家,不同地域的人文风景。
语言是一面镜子,倒映着其所生存的那一片天空。同时,它也是一扇窗,通向远方那些绚丽多姿,诗意盎然的画面。本专辑精心选取了英语、法语、德语、西班牙语、葡萄牙语、汉语、日语、菲律宾语、意大利语,九种在人类社会中颇具代表性的语言,并以此演绎来自欧洲、亚洲、美洲的十二首脍炙人口的优美歌曲。一张小小的专辑,固然不足以记录下这些语言所能表达的全部美好情愫,但却可以成为一扇任意门,带聆听者共赴一段充满绮丽风光和惊艳体验的世界风情之旅。
继收获了诸多赞誉的《星空》专辑之后,瑞鸣音乐制作人叶云川再度与好莱坞资深作曲家Josh Nelson,以及其所邀请的美国跨界乐团进行合作,于洛杉矶西好莱坞录音棚力创佳作。除了Josh Nelson充满无限创造力的精湛编曲技艺,以及乐团成员依然出神入化的现场演绎之外,本次录制过程中的最大亮点,就是为专辑献唱的六位女歌手。出身于不同的地域而齐聚于此的她们,以纷彩异呈但同样具备高度艺术感染力的演唱技巧,在重现原曲韵味的同时,也呈现出一种清新跳跃的视觉感觉,使人仿佛置身于变幻的光影和流动的风景之中。
静静聆听一曲《孩子》,在热带雨林的馥郁气息之中,体会如丝如缕的乡愁情思。在《但愿人长久》庄重而温柔的典雅韵律里,追寻月光下的幽幽情怀。将《最后的华尔兹》奏至收梢,在雾都迷离的夜色与街灯昏黄的光晕下,体会刻骨铭心的那一场离别。语言,作为世界上最动人的声音,涂染着地域赋予其的独特色彩,也承载着人类共同的情感。在此,伴随着《佳日启程》的悠扬旋律,奔向回忆与幻想之中所有曾经憧憬的美好远方。

Foreword:
Do you remember? Those deep blue skies, the carefree song of the birds fluttering overhead. The surface of the sea, speckled with starlight, as the waves crash tirelessly against the shore. The dance of raindrops across flower petals on a quiet afternoon. The rustling whisper of fallen leaves in the autumn wind. When human language was first created, perhaps it was in imitation of the melodies of nature. The sounds of the world, be they tender, intense, crystalline, or tenebrous, throughout the ages of history, have become the whisper of a lover, the lullaby of a mother, the greeting of an old friend, or the muffled cries of one’s heart.
Aside from the thousands of languages in the world, there are also thousands of rhythms and melodies to accompany them. German, hailing from the cold north, bears the deep somberness of its peaks and forests, and the crispness of its winters. Spanish, born in the warm south of Europe, which later sailed across the Atlantic to the Americas, is full of the vigor and vitality of the bright sun, and a spontaneous, carefree feel much like dancing. Japanese, with its delicate and cordial intonations, encapsulates the rustic charm of this Far East archipelago. Filipino, its home in the tropical islands of the Pacific, feels like a friend from just beyond memory, and invokes images of the cultural fusion of the Southern Seas, along with azure waves crashing on white beaches adorned with palm trees. There’s also French, with its vigorous yet supple sound; Mandarin, with its lush imagery and incomparable poetic qualities; English, concise, straightforward yet still incredibly elegant; Italian, with its rising and falling crescendos like music to the ear; and Portuguese, exquisite and melodious. Each of these languages has its own cadence, and forms the basis for the many different cultures and peoples of the world.
Language is like a mirror, reflecting the piece of sky beneath which it exists, while at the same time it is also a window, offering a glimpse of the multifarious sceneries of the world, each more captivating than the last. This album was recorded in nine representative languages of the world, namely English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Filipino and Italian, to bring you 12 classic songs from Europe, Asia and the Americas. A single compilation is by no means sufficient to express all of the sentiments that these languages have to offer, but it can act as a gateway by which the listener may take part in a magical journey throughout our incredible world.
After the warm reception of their previous collaboration on Starry Sky, Rhymoi Music Producer and veteran Hollywood composer Josh Nelson combine their talents once again, featuring performances by a transboundary American band, with recording carried out in a Hollywood studio. In addition to the composer’s immense creative talent and the band’s superb live performances, the greatest highlight of this album is the six female vocalists. Each hailing from different regions of the world, they come together with their vastly distinct yet equally impressive professional skills, to revive the original feel of these songs, while also infusing them with a fresh, lively visual sense, so that one feels as if they are within the miraculously wonderful scenes described in the lyrics.
Sitting down and listening quietly to “Child” will transport one to a fragrant, tropical atmosphere, and invoke deep longing for one’s warmest memories. Amidst the somber yet soothing and elegant melody of “Hope You Are There”, one may recall the serene sensation of gazing at the common moon. As “The Last Waltz” draws to an end, so does an unforgettable binding, its conclusion taking place in the fog-shrouded, lamp-lit streets of London. Language, as the most touching sound possible in the human world, bears both the unique aspects of its birthplace, and the common sentiment of mankind. Amidst the lingering melody of “Li Hi Tabidachi”, all of the wonderful places on Earth we have ever yearned for come flooding back into our mind’s eye.
