為了要寫出巴洛克時期的音樂,我將巴哈二聲部、三聲部創意曲拿出來稍稍複習,找出寫作的手法。
巴哈的音樂一直讓我覺得很好進入,因為它很純粹很純淨,沒有糾結的慾念,聽起來格外單純。儘管聲部間的走向錯綜複雜,但其實又是如此巧妙地相互呼應對唱。不論是橫向或縱向的火花,短樂句的突然出現或是長樂句的交疊,總是帶給人清新愉悅的感覺。這就是巴洛克音樂神性的魅力!有機會寫巴洛克風格的音樂,並且收錄在專輯裡,是件很興奮、很幸運的事!
一起聽聽收錄在王若琳創作專輯 “博尼的大冒險” 裡歌曲 “The adventures of Bernie the schoolboy"
 
In order to write music as Baroque Period, I have reviewed some technics of Bach Invention and Sinfonia.

For me, Bach's music is easy to digest. It is pure and clean because there is no tangled desire.

Despite the way all the melodies go is complicated, they actually response to each other seamlessly.

No matter musical sparks come from vertical or horizontal directions, or no matter it is a short appeared phrase or overlapping long phrases, the feeling is always delightful! This is the charm of Baroque Music. Really happy and grateful having the chance to arrange songs in Baroque Style and get it recorded in the album, The adventures of Bernie the schoolboy. Let's listen to the arrangement of "The adventures of Bernie the schoolboy" !

[Jazz Music] Sometime Ago

IMG_9430
Sometime Ago is a warm/lovely/relaxing Jazz Waltz.
We all know that Jazz is a very intellectual music. However, sometimes we just want to hear something light, but of course, always with nice melody rich harmony! We are simply looking for something easy to resonate with our hearts 🙂 right?

[Jazz Music] Invitation

9455
Invitation is one of my favorite Jazz Standard. I find it's pretty ...sexy!
I have played it many many times, and also recorded it in my debut Jazz album "Jazz Without Time Zones". However, I never got tired of playing it. There is always something amazing coming out!Like this time, all the sudden, I improvised by my left hand 🙂

Invitation 是我很愛的一首爵士標準曲。我覺得這首歌有種...性感的感覺!
即便是我已彈過好多次,也收錄在我的第一張爵士演奏專輯 “爵士零時差” ,但我從沒厭倦過演奏它,因為每次總是會有驚奇的音樂想法產生!譬如這一次,就突然想來一段用左手即興的片段 🙂

[Creative Music] Piano Arrangement: Only Child

118

Arranging Music is fun and extremely creative!
The way I arrange this song is to imitate Bach's style, then write like INVENTION & SINFONIA.
The feature of INVENTION & SINFONIA is that 2 or 3 voicings flow gracefully and harmonically.
I challenged myself to write music like them.
It feels great to play my own arrangement.
The composer is Joanna Wang and this song "Only Child" is recorded in her album "The adventures of Bernie the schoolboy" (distributed by SONY music)
In the recording, the sounds are made by synthesizers which create fantasy and vintage vibe.
However, in this video, the pure piano sound creates the classic Baroque vibe.

編曲很有趣且非常具創意!除了是音樂創作者和表演者之外,我也是編曲者。
這是一首模仿巴哈創作風格的編曲。我編曲的方式,是以寫出像巴哈二聲部和三聲部創意曲為目標。
巴哈二聲部、三聲部創意曲的特色是:二至三個聲部間,彼此優雅且和諧地流動著。
我挑戰自己,要寫出這樣的音樂!
演奏自己的編曲真的是件很享受的事!這首歌收錄在王若琳的 “博尼的大冒險” 專輯。
在專輯裡,編曲部分是用合成器製造出奇幻又復古的感覺。
然而,在這個影片裡,我用純鋼琴表現出經典巴洛克時期的樂風。

Concert Selection 1 音樂會精選一

嫣式魔幻音樂會

2011年,我舉辦了一場結合古典、爵士、創作的全方位音樂會。曲目有經典爵士、自彈自唱創作、改編流行歌為爵士樂,也彈了在古典音樂求學路上的重要樂曲。不想被歸類為某種音樂類型的音樂家,喜歡遊走在他們之間,創作他們、混合他們,形成自己的風格!創作者最可貴的天份,就是開創獨特風格!天份是用來發揮的,千萬不要浪費了!

Video 1:"Rachmaninoff, second piano concerto" 他的音樂有一種深度的激昂澎湃!幽暗的氣氛與使人不自覺地向心裡深處不斷地挖!灰黑迷霧中的暗湧,正是最迷人之處! Video 2:“The Secret Transition秘密轉移" 寫給我最愛的弟弟!他是我的情緒轉移物。不論心情多差,只要想到他,馬上就會快樂起來。
