用音符打动人心

「打鼓的节奏就像心跳声一样」,由朱宗庆老师的这番注解,可以看出打击乐虽是古典音乐里的一个门类,却特别容易和观众产生共鸣,朱宗庆打击乐团的第一代团员黄.俨,说明打击乐之所以容易让人接受,在于充满无限的可能性,台上台下都能发挥想像力。但乐团的生活并不纯粹只是拎着鼓棒演奏而已,幕后搬运、排列乐器到所有「团体」生活的工作,团员都要一手包办,「几乎24小时以乐团为中心,所以乐团至今没有对外招考过,一定是学生时期加入,从『基层』开始慢慢养成,成为一团的团员少说也要10年以上。」

团员各个多才多艺
很多人好奇团员为什么需要熬这么长的时间,黄.俨认为,打击乐演奏家比起独奏家,更要具备十八般武艺,必须懂得各种打击乐器,「像乐团的女生虽然常站在前排,若打起大鼓也没问题,平时打鼓的男生,也很擅长木琴」,乐团采大家庭式的师徒制,所有资深团员都有指导年轻团员的责任。

提到密集的演出行程,黄.俨说,今年一、二团的国内外演出就超过140场,再加上以大学生为主的「跃动打击乐团」,会到校园或地方巡回,「就像职棒大联盟、小联盟的分工」。广受欢迎的「儿童音乐会」以二团成员为主,源起于朱宗庆发现许多表演场合都有年龄限制,便决心为儿童设计专属节目,打破音乐厅只能正襟危坐的印象,小朋友可以跟着「豆荚宝宝」边唱边学乐理,自1989年举办至今仍年年加场演出。

配角晋身舞台主角

摆脱躲在后头伴奏的形象,朱宗庆打击乐团积极尝试各种跨界合作,如早期搭配兰陵剧坊、云门舞集,「当时比较像各演各的,乐团在现场卖力演奏,但对观众来说,视觉观感还是比较强烈。中期开始做音乐剧场,设计灯光、布景、道具等,让团员是『被看到』的,不再只是排排站,还要挑战复杂的走位和肢体动作,近年则几乎完全以打击乐为主体,如作品《拼贴风景》的即兴演出,请来加拿大新媒体艺术家设计大银幕画面,反过来由影像帮衬音乐。」

黄堃细数乐团近期的海外计画,从广州到洛杉矶、多明尼加、北京、上海、香港等地,十足空中飞人的生活。他笑说,「很多人羡慕我们可以到世界各地,但出国最熟悉的其实只有机场、旅馆和表演场地」。

特别的是发生911那年,许多团体纷纷取消行程,但朱宗庆打击乐团10月初仍如期抵达纽约,表演结束后一位妇人激动落泪,抓着工作人员的手说自己灾后首度出门,就是想感谢团员排除万难前来。同样藉由音乐释放压力与不安,921后乐团到6间学校赈灾演出,看到灾区小朋友最后终于露出笑容时,黄堃说:「这应该就是音乐家的使命感吧,一场触动人心的现场演出,足以让观众记得一辈子」。

Zhu Zong Qing Percussion Society

Interview, Taipei, Taiwan Travel Blog

Touch Peoplea��s Heart with the Musical Notes

Taiwan Travel : Interview - Zhu Zong Qing Percussion Societyi??TaiwanDay

a�?Drumbeats are like heartbeats,a�? says Professor Zong Qing Zhu, which explains why percussion and drumming, as one of the classical music, can easily affect people. The member from the first generation of Zhu Zong Qing Percussion Society, Yan Huang, explains that with limitless possibilities, percussion gives people room for imagination, whether they are the performers or the audience; thereby, it makes it easier for people to accept percussion.

However, the life of being a percussionist is not just to perform with a drumstick but also to do everything starting from moving equipment behind the scene, arranging the musical instruments, and every duty in the group activities. That is, a percussionist works 24 hours for the Society. As a result, the Society has never recruited anyone from the public; in other words, each member joins since they are students and starts from the entry level. Therefore, every member has at least ten years of experiences.

Every Member is a Versatile Performer

Many people wonder why the members need to be trained for so long. Yan Huang thinks that a percussionist, compared to a recitalist, needs to know various percussion instruments. It is like a girl who usually stands in the front row will be okay to play bass drum; a boy who typically plays drums is also good at xylophone. The Society adopts the mentoring system that every senior member is responsible for coaching younger members.

As to the tight performance schedule, Yan Huang says that the first and second ranked groups have over a hundred and forty national and international performances. In addition to that, the Motion Percussion Society by university students will have tours to campus or local areas; this is like teamwork between the baseball major and minor league. The second ranked group leads the popular Childrena��s Concert, which was established because Zong Qing Zhu has found that many concerts impose age restrictions, and he decides to design shows for kids and break the stereotype that people have to sit up straight in the concert hall. At Childrena��s Concert, kids can sing along with Baby Peas and learn music theory. The show was established since 1989 and has been adding more dates every year.
