香港,無可抵擋。Hong Kong, Irresistible

作品名稱:「沐浴,在高跟鞋」 "When the High Heel Becomes Bathtub"

無可抵擋的魅力世界縮影
The world's epitome with irresistible charm

迷戀,仍舊 Obsession, Still

對於香港,一直有種情懷...從小生長在港星大舉攻台、香港演藝圈的Golden Era, 大概自小學三年級開始,就很喜歡聽廣東歌,也開始迷偶像。回想起來,我的偶像大概有95%都是港星!總覺得香港男星很Man很有型,譬如:鄭伊健、黎明。 女星有種大女人都會俐落的風姿綽約,譬如:鄭秀文、李嘉欣。不同於台灣社會較為保守的封閉,以及偏向日系的審美觀,香港既留住中國的根又充滿著西化的開放氛圍,即便我當時只是個小學生,卻已非常嚮往這種無可抵擋的魅力!
 

Somewhere deep down in my heart, I always have some special feelings to Hong Kong...
When I was a child, it was the Golden Era for the entertainment industry of Hong Kong. Around the 3rd grade, I started to listen to Cantonese pop songs and feel some obsessions to some idols. Actually, there are 95% of my idols are Hong Kong stars! Just feel that HK guys are so "Man" and stylish, such as Ekin Cheng and Leo Lai. HK women are powerfully gorgeous, such as Sammi Cheng and Michele Lee.The society of Taiwan is somehow more conservative and close. The esthetics are more towards to Japanese. Hong Kong is a place that holds the root of authentic Chinese culture and westernized at the same time. Even if I was just a student in elementary school, I already felt that irresistible charm!

[Creative Music] Piano Arrangement: Plotting Revenge

ok_9534-1
Baroque: The Vintage Fantasy

Plotting Revenge 是我跟創作歌手王若琳,在 “博尼的大冒險” 專輯中,共同合作的第三首歌曲。
歌由王若琳創作,編曲由我創作。延續其他兩首“Only Child" "Bernie the adventure of the schoolboy" 的編曲方式,這首曲子仍舊為巴洛克風格,表現純淨、明亮的特性。聲部與聲部間密切的連結與和諧地竄動,更是主要亮點!

Plotting Revenge is the third song that I collaborated with the singer-songwriter Joanna Wang in the album, Bernie the adventure of the schoolboy.
The song is composed by Joanna Wang and arranged by me. As the other 2 songs that I arranged in this album "Only Child" and "Bernie the adventure of the schoolboy", I kept the same style, Baroque, for this song to create the absolute purity and brightness. Moreover, the most interesting thing is that the sweet harmony happens between the voices that connect seamlessly.
