八個人,五項樂器,四大洲,三種語言,一首歌 - Jam 2.0

這個世界太廣大了,廣大到我們根本不認識世界另外一頭的人說著什麼樣的語言、過著什麼樣的生活。可是,有一種方式可以連結全球人,它叫做網路。有一種語言大家都聽得懂,它叫做音樂。

今天要跟大家分享一個MV,這首歌叫做Jam 2.0。(其實這MV半年前就已經拍成,還上了CNN,我到今天才看到,實在是Lag太大;但不跟大家分享又實在太可惜了。)

八個人,五項樂器,四大洲,三種語言,一首歌--這首歌由CAIN MOSNI(應是一個搞互動媒體的創業公司?)發想,由Dumbfoundead主Rap,集結全世界音樂人跨網路即興Live Jam,實在太酷了。



這首歌的歌詞,內容是在講述音樂可以如何跨越語言種族的各種界限。當中有這麼一段:

Across the seas I hear piano keys playin, translating languages through the rhythms in beats bangin, a universal exchange, of personal pains and joys, it started with a verse, each person just came and joined in, some are complete strangers, some only teenagers, all of us creators, we are the dreammakers, internationally transmittin through bandwidth, passin this bands passion so the masses can jam with us, all are invited to play, none are required to pay, let the virus spread, inspire heads, go pirate away, this is that free music, for people who need music, just listen and breathe to it, I hope that you feel movement, different souls around globe, connected through sound makin, they set the foundation now we take it to groundbreakin, everybody played there part and now we have one song, and this is how an unheard voice becomes strong

看完這段歌詞很感動,音樂真的是最不需要解釋的語言。任何人都該浸淫在其中,所以,就讓這首歌自由流傳、複製吧,這是自由/免費的音樂…(我試圖翻譯這段,但實在太難翻了,不但要顧及語意還有押韻…不如大家看原文吧)

This is the free music, for people who need music – 所以,拿去吧。這首歌,在Dumbfoundead的官網中可以免費下載

註:在youtube原文影片當中,指出這段音樂原曲來自於Galt MacDermot 的歌曲”Coffee Cold“。後來又有Handsome Boy Modeling School翻唱,叫The Truth
