這次2017台灣月 生祥樂隊香港演唱會,會以去年創作出版的《圍庄》概念雙唱片的音樂內容為主,這專輯以石化工業跟我們生活交纏交戰的故事為題材,以兩張唱片的篇幅,把重點放在空氣污染、水源問題、石化工業等人為禍害,盼求透過作品喚起更多人對環境污染的關注。唱片去年透過在臺灣的眾籌募資平台Flying V,以破紀錄的超額完成,順利在去年5月20日 出版。

 

過去一年,《圍庄》 概念雙唱片在去年第七屆金音創作獎,獲得《評審團獎》、《最佳專輯獎》和 《最佳民謠單曲獎》。也在今年六月頒發的第廿八屆的流行音樂金曲獎中,再度獲得評審最重要肯定頒予《評審團獎》。

 

生祥樂隊從去年5月舉辦三場售票演唱會,到10-11月全臺灣北中南的10場大學[圍庄校園巡迴] ,以至今年5月在台北國際會議中心舉辦的《菊花夜行軍15週年紀念演唱會》,林生祥在出道 20 年,成功完售 3000 人中型場地。這次香港的演唱會,也得到香港中文大學藝術行政主任辦公室的支持,在中大邵逸夫堂演出,除了延續分享圍庄這張被金曲奬評審團主席黃韻玲形容為:「不只是一張音樂專輯,更是土地結合音樂的紀錄」的歌曲外,也會加入《菊花夜行軍》和其他專輯的經典歌曲。同時,更會邀請黑鳥主唱郭達年擔任特別嘉賓,兩位同為土地發聲的音樂人史無前例,破天荒合作演出。

 

樂隊簡介

生祥樂隊的成員有:林生祥/月琴、電月琴、主唱,大竹研/吉他,早川徹/電貝司,吳政君/打擊樂器,福島紀明/鼓手,黃博裕/嗩吶手,及詩人鍾永豐。永豐與生祥的詞曲合作,始於1998年交工樂隊時期的「我等就來唱山歌」專輯,至今已發表七張專輯。鍾永豐拿過兩屆金曲獎最佳作詞人獎座,林生祥則有七座金曲獎、十座金音獎。2001年他們的音樂創作走向國際,巡迴歐、亞、美洲等十幾個國家。日本籍的大竹研與早川徹分別於2006、09年加入,吳政君則於2011年成為團員,福島紀明和黃博裕則於2014年成為團員;樂手皆有爵士樂的即興修養,每一次的現場演出,均有令人驚喜的表現。生祥樂隊關注農工、環境議題,音樂上則以台灣傳統音樂元素為基底,並協調西方當代音樂,成為台灣獨樹一格的新民謠樂種。

 

【林生祥】

將台灣農民與勞工故事傳唱下去的誠實音樂人

美濃子弟林生祥於1994年,和他的樂團「觀子音樂坑」投入聲援家鄉反水庫運動的行列。1998年,林生祥與美濃愛鄉協進會合辦「過庄尋柳」、「遊蕩美麗島」演唱會後,開始嚴肅地思考音樂的社會文化意義,而後決定回鄉,這也是他往後音樂生命歷程的重要起點。走過反水庫的交工時期,以及與各界樂手合作碰撞的時期,林生祥的創作廣度不斷跨越,濃度也持續增加。但他的關懷主題卻始終圍繞著土地與農民──既是他的起點,也是他的養分。

 

音樂上,林生祥再次回到以月琴創作的思路;但不同於交工樂隊的時代,月琴不再是拼貼的元素。林生祥認真地思考,傳統樂器在現代演出場景的應用,從增弦、定弦到調弦,並實驗各種音響性的可能。他將過去四年專注在吉他上的節奏排練,移植回月琴演奏上,而曾在吉他上思考的月琴應用,折返至月琴,綜合出一種在現代演出條件改變下、仍能不背離傳統的音色。這樣來回建構的音樂思考之路,使他的音樂更為誠懇厚重。

 

【大竹研】(日本)

林生祥近年來最重要與密切合作的音樂夥伴。

1974年生於日本。高中時代接觸電吉他和熱門音樂,大學時代開始觸類旁通搖滾、爵士、民謠等各式樂種,近幾年潛心鑽研木吉他演奏技巧,並曾與沖繩民謠大師平安隆(Takashi Hirayasu)搭檔多年,重新編演沖繩民謠, 平安隆譽之為「最沉穩內斂的搭檔夥伴」。

大竹研透過對音樂理性的拆解與分析,佐以原音彈撥,卻發揮較插電效果器更富想像力的音響效果,提煉出創新的音樂能量。與客家新民謠創作人林生祥初識於2003年流浪之歌音樂節,此後密切合作演出及創作,受到高度矚目。2006年《種樹》中畫龍點睛的演出,2009年《野生》專輯中吉他與吉他默契對話,《大地書房》中的大竹研與林生祥,更是難以拆解的契合 。

 

【早川徹】(日本)

早川徹是出身於日本爵士樂界、極受重視的新生代電貝斯手,他的演奏風格獨具一格,靈動的節奏,是許多亞洲樂人欠缺的。同時,他擅長多樣旋律樂器,也使得他在扮演貝斯手的角色時,不侷限於低音節奏的線條,而能超越樂器的特色,與合作樂人以共同悠游的姿態,貫穿樂曲。

 

【吳政君】

畢業於國立台灣戲曲學院,擅長南胡、拉丁打擊樂器、中國打擊樂器、世界手鼓、爵士鼓等多項樂器,學生時代即以優異表現受邀與多位國樂名家同台演出。近年來以國樂素養與多方位的打擊才華,跨足世界音樂、爵士樂、拉丁音樂、流行音樂等領域,曾與張惠妹、江蕙、任賢齊、戴佩妮、日本鬼太鼓座、變形蟲爵士樂團、聲之動等歌手及樂團合作演出,現為 Montonos 拉丁樂團、絲竹空爵士樂團、聲之動樂團團員,並任教於台灣戲曲專科學校。

 

【福島紀明】(日本)

福島紀明師出日本爵士音樂家古澤良治郎,打鼓的風格有多種,從流行歌搖滾、爵士、自由即興等都難不了他。 2014年,與大竹研和早川徹首次以「東京中央線」名義在台灣巡迴,並於2015年到香港演出,大獲好評。同年加入生祥樂隊的圍庄雙CD專輯錄音及巡迴。

 

【黃博裕】

 80後的年輕樂手,畢業於國立台灣戲曲學院,主修嗩吶。現就讀國立台北藝術大學。曾師承呂燕玲、林子由、郭進財、黃章桐,並曾向中國大陸演奏家郭雅志、李光才、單文通等名師請益。
