每一个音符都是一次实验

从民谣到摇滚,从摇滚到爵士,张思安,这位来自法国的音乐实验者,不同于其以往地推出了自己的一张电音专辑,Electronic Music For Chinese Restaurants

从2000年张思安第一次到中国,已经十二年了,Chinese Restaurants已经不再是作为外国人眼中的概念。他绝不是为中国餐馆量身打造音乐,而是在展现一种认知,判断,甚至是讽刺。就像是专辑里的一首曲子,Inverse Mass, 反过来的。

那不仅仅是吃串儿喝啤酒的地方,中国人的千姿百态都发生在餐馆里。签合约,谈生意,陪老板,宿醉,见老友,表白,分手,然后再移步到卡拉OK,你可以在那里体验到人间百味,尝到酸甜苦辣。就像这张专辑,融汇了不同的口味风格。

张思安是个随性的音乐人,在舞台上表演什么要看自己的心情,感觉到了就对了。专辑的风格似乎也是如此,感觉在哪里,下一个一音符就在哪里,心情怎么样,节拍就怎么样。

这个把自己丢入文化大熔炉的法国音乐人,六岁的时候跟随父母从秘鲁回到法国,会说两国语言的他在受到同学排挤的同时也发现了自己的与众不同。他最初的梦想是做个发明家,像他爸爸一样。于是,有一天,他成为了一名音乐发明家,中文名字叫张思安,法文名字叫巴赫。

从世界末日到童话故事,人们的耳语间民谣吉他混搭着电音,像是深思熟虑的穿梭于城市间,又走到了悬崖边。突然,转到下一曲,一个中国女孩像三句半一样给你讲了一个故事,科学家找到了小姑娘,听起来那么的无厘头,却又残酷而真实。 之后,你又会在土豆泥里听到熟悉的老北京茶馆里的弦音,以及越来越强的波光电影。

云南即兴把人们带进丽江小道,角落里的民族酒吧,原离景区的喧嚣,一首循环播放的曲子,配上一杯自酿的米酒。音符里我看到张思安在中国行走的脚步,走走停停间,谱出的旋律。

像他自己说的,我会把每天学到的新东西都放进音乐里。他看起来本该是个初学者,很简单的中国元素,很普通的生活细节,但又因为被他放进了音乐里,所以变得与众不同。又因为这些元素细节被我们遗忘或是忽略,所以显得震耳欲聋。

他喜欢尝试各种新的东西,像他小时候的梦想一样。你要听听方便面这首歌,节拍好似弯曲的面饼,电音与中国音乐的结合,像是讽刺这舶来品的代表,以及背后城市生活。

这张专辑是在他北京的家里录的,没有多少好用的设备,便宜的声卡,普通的苹果电脑,简陋的麦克风。他唯一的要求是,请听者戴上耳机,或者插上扬声器。

在这个音乐速食的年代,人们可以轻而易举地听到一首歌;点击播放键,音乐好像就在耳边。其实不然,不经意间,你丢了很多音符,旋律,声效,更丢了音乐人的辛苦和诚心。

也许,不是每一首歌都值得你戴上耳机品尝,但是张思安的,值得。
