声音简介

Muchlike the sense of smell, music can instantly bring back moments from our past,locations, people we've known, sensations and emotions. I don't know theparticulars of how sounds act on brain activity to make this happen, but it'strue.

音乐和气味一样,能立刻让我们想起过去、地点、认识的人、感受和情绪。我不清楚声音如何促使大脑做出这些反应,但它的效果是真实的。

Themusic of the guzheng, for example, always takes me back to my first months inChina in 2012, as my wife and I were visiting Shanghai's People's Park. Thesounds from the traditional Chinese zither and the lush surroundings haveremained etched in my mind. We felt we had landed in a beautiful, exotic dream.

比如古筝音乐总能让我想起2012年初到中国时,和太太在上海人民公园时的情景。古筝的声音和周边环境让我们犹如在充满异国风情的美梦中。

SinceI've lived in several different parts of the world, my portfolio of musicaltastes and memories is varied, including such diverse types as the traditionalmusic of Beijing opera, bluegrass music from the Appalachian region of theUnited States, classic rock from the 1960s and 1970s, Andean pan pipe music,Argentine tango and Brazilian samba.

由于我在世界很多地方都生活过,所以对于音乐的品味很广泛,从京剧、美国阿帕拉契山脉的蓝草音乐、上世纪六七十年代的摇滚乐、安第斯山脉的排箫、阿根廷探戈到巴西桑巴。

Theballads and folk-rock tunes of singer and songwriter Cat Stevens, whose name isnow Yusuf Islam -- who was very popular in the 1970s -- take me back to teenageangst.

上世纪七十年代非常有名的创作歌手CatStevens(现名YusufIslam)的民谣总能让我回忆起青年时代。

Withcollege came such classic rock musicians and bands as Neil Young and PinkFloyd. A postgraduate year studying in Argentina introduced me to the beauty oftango and such popular singers as the late Argentine icon Mercedes Sosa, aleader of the nueva cancion or new song movement.

摇滚乐手NeilYoung和乐队PinkFloyd让我想起大学时期。在阿根廷攻读硕士学位的时候我喜欢上了探戈和著名的阿根廷歌手MercedesSosa。

Morethan three years living on the US-Mexico border, and crossing it most days towork in Mexico, taught me the beauty of Mexican mariachi, norteno and otherstyles of music. Several years in Miami taught me about tropical sounds.

我曾在美国和墨西哥边境住了三年,每天去墨西哥工作让我了解到各种类型的当地音乐。而在迈阿密的多年经历又让我认识了热带地区的音乐。

Thereare few auditory experiences that make me happier than listening to theensemble of veteran Cuban musicians referred to as The Buena Vista Social Club.I'll put it on when I'm cooking or washing dishes in my Beijing apartment andbe transported to a Caribbean island.

我最喜欢《乐士浮生录》专辑里的古巴音乐。我在北京的家里做饭洗碗的时候就会放这部片子,就好像到了古巴一样。

Themusic dates from before the revolution and much of it falls into traditionalAfro-Cuban music styles such as son. It's lilting, beautiful, tropical soundsevoke love and longing in the small towns of Cuba.

这些富有传统非洲古巴风格的音乐可以追溯到古巴革命之前。轻快、美丽,有着热带风情的音乐让这个小镇充满了爱和渴望。

Theactual Buena Vista Social Club started in the 1940s in Havana as a hub formusicians and performers at a time of greater racial segregation. The clubclosed in the 1960s and traditional music declined with societal changes andnew musical trends.

真实的俱乐部诞生于上世纪四十年代的哈瓦那。在种族歧视下,这里成为音乐家和表演者的避风港。随着社会变革和新兴音乐潮流的兴起,传统音乐日渐式微,俱乐部也在六十年代停业。

WhenUS guitarist Ry Cooder arrived in Havana in 1996 for a session with legendaryCuban musicians from that earlier era, the magic of The Buena Vista Social Clubhappened. The album of the same name became a gigantic international hit,thawed US-Cuba relations and made household names of such Cuban masters asCompay Segundo, Ruben Gonzalez and Ibrahim Ferrer (all of whom died between2003 and 2005).

美国吉他手RyCooder在1996年在哈瓦那和古巴早期的传奇乐手开会,乐士浮生录的魔力开始体现。同名专辑蜚声国际,改善了美国和古巴的关系,也让古巴音乐大师成为家喻户晓的名字。

Somesurviving members have continued to tour under the group's name.

尽管有三位音乐家在2003年和2005年间去世,其他的音乐家一直在环球举办活动。

Ifirst heard Mongolian throat singing by an ethnic Mongolian Chinese musicianwho goes by the name Tom Peng at the (now closed) Southern Belle bar inShanghai. He played a mean mandolin in a bluegrass band and his singing wasotherworldly. I was very happy to see that Tom and many members of his NewGrass Band appeared at the RockyGrass music festival in Colorado in July.

我在上海SouthernBelle酒吧(已停业)第一次听到呼麦,表演者是蒙古族的TomPeng。他在乐队里弹着曼陀林,歌声空灵。我非常高兴看到他和乐队成员出现在七月的科罗拉多RockyGrass音乐节上。

Ialso love a Mongolian heavy metal group called The HU (not to be confused withGreat Britain's The Who) who put a totally new Asian twist on metal music.

我还喜欢一个蒙古重金属乐队The HU,他们为金属乐加入新亚洲音乐。

There'sa big, wonderful world of music out there, so dive right in!

音乐世界庞大充满魅力,一起畅游吧!
