Hybrid, “Usual Rules”

If you have followed this blog for more than two years, you might notice that I have written about this Welsh band for a few times. Their latest album “Light of the Fearless" was released last July, but I couldn’t find the right mood for it until recent weeks. This is the band’s fifth original album, and their debut album was released in 1999. So many years have passed, the band members have changed, and they also have tried to write music for TV shows, films, and video games. Being their fan needs to be patient. Last summer we finally have got what we have been waiting for, and the Godot we are waiting for really worths the wait. My favorite tack is “Usual Rules." The song itself is already like a short film, a cinematic soundscape having its own story. I love the orchestra and piano parts at the background, and the sound of woodwind (I think that is saxophone) is a nice surprise.

Interlude in Prague

去年曾在Hybrid樂團的臉書上看到他們提及參與了電影《Interlude in Prague》的配樂工作,事隔一年後,他們也在臉書公布了後續的消息。電影即將於五月11日於英國舉行首映,五月25日於英國各地的戲院上映。電影配樂也將於25日發行。這部電影是以音樂家莫札特待在布拉格的期間做為歷史背景而發展出來的一段故事,爾後不久,莫札特便寫下了歌劇《唐.喬凡尼》(Don Giovanni)。 繼續閱讀 “Interlude in Prague"

Depeche Mode 〈Enjoy the Silence〉翻唱版本一記

英國電子樂團體 Depeche Mode (流行尖端)的一首舊作〈Enjoy the Silence〉是我蠻喜歡的一首歌。近年來偶爾會聽到有人翻唱,而在真人版《攻殼機動隊》(Ghost in the Shell)的首支電影預告片中,又聽到一個版本,這樣子算下來也就有三個版本了,今天就一起在這裡作個紀錄。 繼續閱讀 “Depeche Mode 〈Enjoy the Silence〉翻唱版本一記"

Hybrid, “Break My Soul ”

Hyrbid是來自英國威爾斯的一個電子音樂團體,由1996年成軍至今,目前的成員有三個人,分別是負責寫歌的Mike Truman及Chris Healings,Charlotte James負責歌詞及vocal。樂團成立這麼多年,他們的音樂就像電影配樂一樣充滿戲劇性,感覺上很適合《神鬼認證》系列、《玩命關頭》系列、《偷天換日》(The Italian Job)這種快節奏的電影。 繼續閱讀 “Hybrid, “Break My Soul ”"
