Discovering More Self By Discovering the World

The Journey of Unknown

一個充滿好奇心與探險精神的非典型公主:安娜塔西亞,天生擁有活躍地藝術細胞,創造力豐盛,腦筋裡總出現著許多天馬行空的創意想法。從小生長在充滿愛的城堡,受到無微不至的呵護。外人看似天之驕女、無憂無慮的她,其實並不滿足於現狀。她始終覺得,安逸的生活裡,無法激發她全面的潛能。也因為強烈好奇心,對城堡外的世界充滿好奇!她想看更多的世界,也想挖掘更多的自己。於是決定踏出城堡這個安全區,進入一趟探索 未知 之旅...
 

Anastasia is an unconventional and curious princess. She is full of creative energy and has lots of talent in arts. Growing up in the castle with lots of love and care around her, she somehow feels...something is definitely missing! By nature, she feels that living in the comfort zone is not her ideal situation because it can't stimulate her full potential. She wants to discover herself by discovering the world. Therefore, she decides to leave the comfort zone and puts herself into the journey of unknown!
 
 
<她總是望著城堡外,腦筋裡充滿著對城堡外生活的幻想。她想知道人們過著什麼樣的生活,世界還有哪些面?她想要親身參與、體驗、一探究竟。>

<She always looks at the windows and imagines the life outside of the castle. She wants to know the life that people live and what other phases in the world. She wants to participate in it, experiences it and knows what is going on.>

<她深知自己很幸運地擁有許多珍貴的東西,常常看著、欣賞著、珍惜著、感謝著。但她無法抵擋強烈好奇心的驅使,推動她踏出安全區,除了瞭解世界,也探索自己更多的可能性。>

<她知道要這麼做不容易,離開前,她回頭再次回顧城堡。對擁有的每一份愛、每一樣物品、每一分尊敬,給予最深的感謝能量。接著,她起行。

<It is not easy to do so...Before leaving, she looks around the castle and sends the grateful energy to all the love she has, all the things she owns, and all the respect she gains. Later on, she heads off.>

<打開這扇門,將是一片未知,一個未曾闖入的境地。她的興奮大過於忐忑,小心翼翼地試著,是否能先聽出個什麼端倪?

<It will be a whole unknown, a whole new territory after opening this door. She feels much more excited than afraid and curiously to see if something is going on over there.>

踏入未知,就如同坐上了人生的雲霄飛車:刺激精彩、驚心動魄!

愛,是每個人最深的渴求。 無法理解的來來去去,就是緣分,面對這些來來去去,要學會接受。  Love is what people deeply want. Regarding to the incomprehensible "comes and goes", it is called Destiny. Accepting whatever comes into life is a Must.

<她真的奮不顧身地投向未知。在未知裡,她面對許多世界的黑暗,也必須穿越無所遁形的內心黑暗。她開始學習處理各式各樣的危機、獨自在陌生的城市披荊斬棘。她忍耐著無盡孤獨、承受著許多無法理解為什麼會這樣的痛苦。。。在藝術成長上,她經歷相當多精彩的經驗,一邊留下自己的作品,也一邊提升至更高的境界。許多高人的出現,激發更多的自我肯定。而她的情感上也遇到很多特別的人,共同寫下一些刻骨銘心的故事。這些人、這些經驗,徹底打開了她的眼界、心胸,更擴張了她的藝術生活。她從花花綠綠的地球中,學到“愛,是每個人最深的渴望與需求。” “無法理解的來來去去,就是緣分,面對這些來來去去,就要學會接受。>

<With an open mind, she puts herself into the mysterious unknown. She faces not only the dark reality of the world but also the darkness from inside. She starts to learn how to deal with all kinds of crisis and how to survive in the unfamiliar cities. She puts up with endless loneliness and endures the unbelievable pain...However, she actually makes a big step in her path of arts. Meeting wonderful people and collaborating with them brings her arts and creativity to the next level! These experiences make her discover the real confidence and they are definitely the milestone! As for her romance life, she meets some special people and create some unforgettable stories together. These people and these experiences totally open her vision and mind. She realized that in the colorful surface of world, love is what everyone really needs. Destiny is full of incomprehensible  "come and goes". Accepting whatever comes into life is a Must!

<經過未知的洗禮,她的天真浪漫,已轉化為成熟、堅強、豐盛。她的姿態綻放著,而她的眼裡透露著對世界的同理心。她更深沉了,她的眾多面向,成了珍貴的資產。她喜歡用自身的故事,激勵人們勇敢地順應自己的天份,活出最棒最精彩的自己! >
 
<After the journey of unknown, the naive princess has been transformed into a mature, tough woman. Her temperament is glorious and her eyes reveal the compassion towards the world. She becomes deeper and owns the valuable quality of multi-faceted ability. Now, she likes to inspire people by sharing her own story. Her goal is to inspire people to be brave to follow the desire/talent/nature in order to live life to the fullest!>

<地球旅程> 系列第一輯,未知。The Journey On Earth, Vol.1: UNKNOWN
這是我20歲剛到加拿大留學,進入一個全然的 “未知” 時所寫的。某一個早晨,我醒來,面對窗外的零下三十度的暴風雪、考托福的壓力、全新的爵士樂、截然不同的文化,突然覺得好徬徨、好緊張!我到底在哪裡?到底在幹麻?但是除了徬徨之外,其實有著很大的一部份,是對於成功、對於成為 “夢想中的自己” “希望自己變成的樣子” 的渴望!這股渴望,正是打敗徬徨軟弱,支撐我走過未知的巨大力量!留學前,其實我在古典音樂領域遊刃有餘,得過非常多鋼琴、雙簧管、作曲、電子琴音樂比賽第一名。考大學時,以雙簧管主修考上國立臺北藝術大學音樂系,以鋼琴主修推薦甄試第一名考上輔仁大學音樂系,並在參加音樂營時,獲得加拿大國際鋼琴比賽第一名。但反骨的是,我並沒有就此滿足,因為看見未來的自己,並不僅限於古典音樂家,於是堅決踏上這趟未知,到冰天雪地的加拿大蒙特婁,學習爵士樂、音樂科技。完全不同思考邏輯、完全不同領域,我拋下原本女王的姿態,原本如魚得水的環境,一切歸零、一切重新學習。未知是內在的朔型,很感謝走過這趟經歷,懂得謙虛地珍惜擁有地東西,也使我眼界和心胸都得以更開闊,以及轉型為爵士音樂家、懂得音樂科技能夠全程參與專輯製作,理想中豐盛精彩的自己,需要一步一步不簡單的堆砌。

I wrote this song at age 20. Going to studying in Canada was a big Journey of Unknown. One day when I woke up in the morning, it was -30 degree with snowstorm...the weather was a terrible stress for me, but on top of that, I had the stress from TOFLE exam, learning complete new style of music, Jazz and adapting to the completely new culture....All the sudden, I felt extremely lost and nervous. Where am I? What am I doing? Despite feeling in this weak way, I also felt something very powerful in me...that is the desire to become "Who I Wanna Be! and the "Dream Self". These desire are so strong that lead me to conquer the weakness. Before going to Canada, I was an outstanding student in classical music. Since elementary school, I have already obtained championship in piano, oboe, composition, and YAMAHA electone. Nevertheless, I was not feeling fulfilled because the image of the future self is not limited in classical music! Therefore, I determined to go into this journey of unknown and went to Montreal to learn Jazz and music technology. Facing different logic, different field, I had to take off the crown of classical music and learned all the new things from beginning. Experiencing the journey of Unknown is to reshape your personality and inner self. So grateful that I have been through this! It definitely had a huge impact in me and made me humble, broaden my vision/mind, turn me into a Jazz musician and understand music technology to be able to produce the whole process of my albums. Waking step by step, it is never easy, but definitely rewarding when you really become the ideal, the dream self!
