喜欢咖啡和音乐…

凡是世间存在的味道,
都可以从一杯咖啡里找到;
凡是人们能有的情绪,
都可以用一首音乐来表达。

在“暴力”中逃避现实

(2021-02-17 06:08:39) 下一个

一段时间里,可能会不知不觉地倾向于一类歌曲,发现它们有个共同的特征,即所谓的逃避现实“Escapist ” )。一位音乐博主这样写道:逃避的原因既可能是负面的,也可能是正面的,但逃避音乐目的只有一个,就是逃避本身。音乐人以具体的创作,摆脱自身的情绪,而听者借助他们的音乐,实现自我的逃避。加拿大蒙特利尔音乐人Arnaud Dagenais 直接用” The escapist music “来当作艺名,最近他发行了一首新单曲“Violence”,其实,并不暴力,如他在脸书中,用四个词语描述这首新歌:人性(humanity, 适应(resilience , 意识(consciousness )和开放思想(open minds)。逃避音乐不那么消极、颓废。

 

 

逃避音乐归为“Chillwave”不无道理,直译过来就是寒波音乐,虽然它更多地侧重于音乐人自身,希望创造出一种旋律节奏情绪,在迷茫中,寻找心灵慰藉之源from Apple Music),但对听者来说,Chillwave音乐无疑带来了逃避可能。

 

 

疫情期间,此类音乐大行其道,如Dua Lipa新专辑“Future Nostalgia ”,以及其中值得一提的“We are good” 等的歌曲。最近,韩国歌手Chung Ha发布首张专辑 ‘Querencia’ ,得到音乐评论人的高度推崇:“‘逃避音乐捕获我们的想象,并让想象空间化做Disco仙境,专辑‘Querencia’ 则更上一层楼,把我们带到另一个天地,用燃爆式的音乐语言冲刷着疫情隔离和封闭期间产生的蓝色郁闷。这篇评论最后提到专辑中的歌曲“X”,欣赏歌曲,会注意到电脑制作的视频背景有些暴力, 坦克飞机导弹都上了。但歌曲讲述了一个被人背叛之后,如何脱胎换骨的故事,的确,需要一点点暴力来塑造自己,变得更加强大。歌曲以不同以往的方式,表达一种自我肯定和自我接受self-assurance),从而升华到一种永恒的境界...如歌词中唱的那样:旧伤疤如幽灵如影随形/新面貌让痛苦无影无踪(英译歌词见附录),明示着,尽管这样那样,不尽完美,但唯有自我肯定和接受,才是自信的根源。

 

还有更多的早期逃避风格的音乐,如下面Jake Indiana推荐的 10张专辑,不妨听听,置身于一种飘逸的节奏或者刻意的梦幻声中,流行、摇滚和非传统电音元素相交织,解脱、遗忘和改变...。但是,很有可能,有些朋友对此类音乐毫无感觉,那么,岁月温暖静好。

因此,如何逃避?又回到一个最根本的字:,爱自己,爱值得爱的人,爱花爱草,爱咖啡。:-)

附录: “X”英文歌词(来自网络)

 

[Verse 1]

From somewhere you'd be watching me

Unkept promises all forgotten

Finally, I think I found my place

All the closed doors now open for me

[Pre-Chorus]

Knocking on me the lights

Violet tremors

And eyes staring at me

Make me dream

[Chorus]

This position didn’t shape me

No flowers on the path I've taken

My hand you let go of

(You know you messed up, boy)

'Now farewell’ is now a greeting

That wavers and disappears

To a place that cannot be reached

[Post-Chorus]

You should've loved mе at my worst

Now you just watch me on your TV screen

[Verse 2]

If this is finally my time

Take back all thе sweet whispers

When the whole world leaves me

Be clear and near

[Pre-Chorus]

Knocking on me the lights

Violet tremors

And eyes staring at me

Make me dream

[Chorus]

This position didn't shape me

No flowers on the path I've taken

My hand you let go of

(You know you messed up, boy)

‘Now farewell' is now a greeting

That wavers and disappears

To a place that cannot be reached

[Bridge]

The picture that had no room for me

I stared at it for a long time

Couldn't piece together back then

Those sad pieces are now sharp blades

With sharpened knife, I cut away

The scars of you that followed me like a ghost

Filled up clean with new flesh

Like nothing ever happened

[Chorus]

This place didn't make me (Yeah, it didn't)

There was no flower garden on the road

My hand you let go, yeah

(You know you messed up, boy)

Say hello to now

It shakes and disappears

Out of reach

[Refrain]

You gotta love me at my worst

If you want me at my best and you had it all

I gave my all to you

I gave my all to you

You gotta love me at my worst

If you want me at my best and you had it all

I gave my all to you

I gave my all to you

[Post-Chorus]

You should’ve loved me at my worst

Now you just watch me on your TV screen
