何蕙安綜合音樂文字動漫錄像和帶點幽默的創作


《歌舞慶重生》 (原名《癌三次存活者之歌舞》)

The original title was Song & Dance of a 3-Time Cancer Survivor. I omitted cancer from the title because I feel it is applicable to many different survivors. This is a humorous story in 12 acts based on my own experience. I have already written the libretto cum script with music sketches and production ideas as the basis for realisation as an Internet opera. At the moment it is in the form of a prototype as a creative autobiographical PhD that you can download free from “Creative PhD" page. These videos are experiments using material from a couple of acts in preparation for a much larger work should I be able to obtain the funding required.

The following are some of the music videos; there are more to come.

《歌舞慶重生》是一個有音樂和很多演出材料的曲本。我寫的故事,米綠豪博士加添幽默,以下是根據這曲本材料創造的音樂視頻,將會有更多上載。

Electro-Acoustic Radio Fun 化療趣事


I input numbers into the CCRMA computer system to generate pitch (frequency), rhythm (ratio of time), timbre (harmonics to be present or emphasised), envelop (attack-sustain-decay time), dynamics (amplitudes), structure etc. of the music imagined, then enriched with analogue music equipment. This is much more time/energy consuming than writing music for existing instruments, as I need to create every bit of the sound from scratch. I am not a researcher/scientist of acoustics, and relied on repeated intense listening - trial and error...

I met Marcus West at Cardiff University - I was on an MA and he, a PhD. His math-related computer graphics seems appropriate for my music. The following links are related to his works:

放療比化療舒服點。由於放療是機器和数字,我作的音樂是數碼音樂,我把想像中的音高、音色、節奏、大細聲和結構等等,用數字型式輸入CCRMA電腦系統造成素材,再用電子器材處理創造成這音樂。這比為樂器作曲要花更多的時間和精力,我需要用頻率,時間比例,震幅度,諧波的存在和強調等等,合成來創造每一點的聲音,用數字输入電腦。我不是声音學科學家,需要反复地聆聽输入後的效果,不斷改變數字直至對聲音感覺滿意。西馬可斯是我在大學時的師兄,他與數學有關的電腦圖形藝術很適合我動畫化用來結合音樂。以上是他的作品鏈接,這裡採用的包括一些得獎的電腦設計圖型。


This is from Act 10 Radio Fun & Chemo Comedy of Song & Dance of a 3-Time Cancer Survivor, which is a libretto cum script with music and other performance materials. Dr Mike Greenhough helped humorize my draft.  See (Song & Dance) and click Act 10 for a read. Only a tiny fraction of the text is used in this video. More text is quoted in Jazzy Radio Fun music video.


這來自《歌舞慶重生》的第十段《放療趣事和攪笑化療》,是一個有音樂和很多演出材料的曲本。我寫的故事,米綠豪加添幽默。此視頻只引用了少少曲詞。在《爵士樂放療趣事》視頻有多些曲詞。


Comment of the above video:

" It spoke to me. The music and the graphics. Even though I have never had radiotherapy etc. However, I did experience a machine at a health day which was merely pulsing light and music... (this I didn't know) with eyes shut. I saw lots colours and shapes. The first half of your video reminded me very much of that experience which was very enjoyable... was so shocked when the guy said that had been entirely generated by me... it was all white light being pulsed."   - Francesca Jaggs, former neighbour and Shiatsu practitioner

以上是對放療趣事視頻的評論,觀者說對這音樂和型像有感應,她曾經歴閉上眼面對播着音樂和發閃光的機噐產生顏色圖型的幻覺。
