“他是個巨大的影子,每個人都有的。所有的衝突對立,黑暗不失溫暖,暴力和柔軟,讓我們聽見自己。”我會這麼形容他的音樂。第一次聽見他的歌聲是〈How To Disappear〉這首,他那非常乾淨的聲音,高亢和易怒情感的唱腔和合成器,像是在跟你訴說什麼,音樂遊走在黑暗與光明之間,聽了既陰鬱又感動,有點自虐。一聽Thomas Azier的音樂就愛上他,除了聲音讓人不能自己,玩合成器與聲響、節拍到極致,說他是音樂表演者,他更是位藝術家。每次都讓人期待的他音樂及音樂影片,聲音和影像總是相輔,我想他跟導演有討論過呈現的方式。陸續發表的這些音樂,只會讓人非常期待這張專輯『Hylas』發行,一次完整收聽。Thomas Azier二次線上問答,幾乎認真的一一回答,終於回覆我們會不會來台灣,他回了"YES!!" 感動到不行,一定要兌現啊,如果他可以跟鬼才朋友Woodkid一起來表演就太完美了。

Thomas Azier 出生於荷蘭,19歲搬到柏林開始他的音樂創作之旅,全身受柏林藝術和文化洗禮。常奔走藏身於俱樂部和城市的techno,不滿意他所聽到的那些電子音樂,開始了他的創作。關於柏林,他只知道它很便宜,一直在找尋一個實驗場,他玩techno,也學到很多關於流行音樂。在柏林希望找到的是諷刺和挖苦的環境,那時19歲的他,音樂很天真浪漫,而他的音樂開始被這座城市的氛圍影響,發現城市黑暗的一面,導致他音樂「變態」的走向,體現了藝術品,專輯描繪由粗糙石頭轉化為純水晶的過程。歷時至5年,青春幼稚、爭鬥的成長,他也說「如果有人問我形容自己的音樂,我總是把它稱希望與絕望之間的一齣音樂劇。」

Thomas Azier 的音樂確實是精雕細磨成的水晶。

他的電子史詩性的音樂,也許可定義歐美現在的音樂,我認為他音樂跨類型,並可定義我們這一代,真的很想看他和Woodkid 的史詩音樂雙重混合,會成為什麼模樣。

“Music has turned into nothing more then just a rush in the background while you are busy doing other things. I don’t want to change that, but I try to make something that will catch your ear and communicate with you.” ── Thomas Azier 

音樂已經成為僅此而已,只是一個匆促的背景,而你忙著做其他的事情。我並不想改變這一點,但我盡量讓東西抓住你的耳朵,並與你交流。”  ── Thomas Azier

“What I hate most is music snobbism”──Thomas Azier
他說,我最討厭的就是音樂的勢力,一些人們覺得自己高人一等,因為他們聽小眾音樂。我的意思是,我是一個藝術家一直在尋找音樂,向前推。大多數主流音樂由為群眾和金錢。這是可怕的。

Thomas Azier 就讀荷蘭Academie voor Popcultuur表演藝術學校,那是一間對流行音樂非常嚴肅的學校,他是讀藝術的,19歲到柏林發展。2012年,他贏得了弗里斯蘭省流行音樂人才獎(Friesland Pop Talent Award)和發行兩張EP。被法國多才華的歌手、詞曲家和視頻導演Woodkid 發現和製作,並負責許多Stromae 的擊拍點。現在他找到他喜歡的工作室在東柏林一個廢棄的鐘型工廠(bell factory)。

Stromae - Papaoutai



他在柏林愛好研磨工業音樂。一開始你可能聽見德式的電子樂,有堅硬的德國俱樂部的聲音。但他優美的旋律又交織出史詩音樂。Azier 的音樂是溫暖和優美的旋律,不完全是黑暗的東西。城市每天都在變化,他說柏林的城市是一個極端的例子,他試著記錄。“我將嘗試用唯美,浪漫的旋律和令人難以忘懷的旋律結合起來”他說。“我只是一直在尋找一個對比-寒冷和溫暖,激進的和甜蜜,電子和聲波,響亮而沉默的,暴力性和柔軟性。所以,我的那些衝突相互轉化,這就是我要找的。” 

正如他的聲音融合了來自歐洲各地,他說覺得自己的聲音很歐洲。借鑑來自全國各地對他的影響,不是只有音樂。他說“還有柏林的建築,民主德國共產主義的建築真的很激勵我。還有的這一本書叫奧維德(Ovid)的《變形記》,它所有的故事關於改變,關於轉變,身體的轉化,一個人的轉化。因為這是在生活中我們唯一知道是真實的吧?變化,這是唯一會發生的事情。這是我們可以確認的唯一的事情......所以,這就是我真正開始寫作了解和轉變的過程,寫入過程中的記錄。” 

他戲稱他的音樂為東德R&B,在R&B催生了東德共產主義。他說得對-他的史詩合成器流行『Hylas』亮相,有一些尖銳和易怒情感的R&B,80年代歐洲電子混合用合成和金屬鏗鏘聲。

 

(以下來自Zelfportret: Thomas Azier,以著名的普魯斯特問卷形式訪問很有趣,可以窺探他更深的內心)

我不相信衣服會讓你有吸引力,但是你的態度,讓你有吸引力。” ── Thomas Azier
如此認真的Azier 說了這樣的話。他說有時我覺得自己很醜陋,有時我想:好吧 Thomas,今天你看到或合理的。但那些時刻交替極端。有什麼關係呢?如果幾個星期巡演,不良的飲食和運動少,你覺得不舒服,還有皮膚。然後,你會發現自己難看。但是,如果你幾次很好的運動和良好的表演,然後你突然覺得滿意你自己。


你目前的心境?
困惑,或者你如何用荷蘭語說了嗎?迷茫,是的。我已經連續巡演幾週後,然後回到工作室工作。音樂製作在現階段,在台上做的音樂和在錄音室是兩個不同的,因為你必須重新設置。

 

誰是你的英雄?
從書得到靈感比音樂多,有很多很棒的作家Fernando Pessoa, John Fante 和 Bret Easton Ellis。
我注意到我的收藏偉人是一種隨機收集,從Elvis Presley(貓王), Charles Bukowski, Nirvana到 JD Salinger。那是真的是我們這一代人,每個人都可以快速通過網路-即使它只是一個閃爍-誰都可呼籲你,刺激你。


誰惹惱了你?
沒有特別的人,而是東西:電視。那是如此可怕的愚蠢。我無法想像,電視仍然存在,人們在看。

你似乎像你的父親嗎?
我只是想像我的父親非常完美。我也想像他一樣,做自己最好的。其他人在我眼裡不是最好的。當我去與生產者製作Hylas,我在那裡並不完全滿意。所以我想:畢業了,我自己做的。之前它歷時四年,我自己已經學會如何將所有這一切作品,但最終我有沒有任何讓步,做我自己的專輯製作。我感到非常自豪。當然,我不是說我滿意的專輯,但是我現在聽到的缺陷,我原諒我自己。


你有什麼白日夢?
其實我的頭總是在別處。
總是想著文本,必須讀的和弦沒有在自己位置上 - 之類的事情。我不斷想音樂。


什麼是你最大的恐懼?
你不再控制極端的想法,例如要傷害別人,甚至謀殺,然後真正要做的事情。創意和瘋狂之間的分界線 - 喜歡暴力和愛情之間 - 跟紙一樣薄。

你祈禱嗎?
當然,但不是神什麼的,它是一個對自己說的時刻。


你曾經有一個神秘的經驗嗎?
有些時候,當你寫的音樂,超越自己之上。這些都是最好的時刻。那麼你是最清楚的,那是你自己寫的。這就是不可思議。如果你再聽聽回來以後,你會想:我做了什麼?


什麼是你對幸福的定義?
只有接受你,你所有的缺陷,可以接受的幸福。和我在一起,但這種接受是持續的,可能直到我死。


什麼讓你感到尷尬?
如果我有聽到未完的歌如此羞愧。或者說,你的歌詞都要向人們解釋,這也是很尷尬。不幸的是,有時候,因為你需要為你的音樂標籤熱門,但我覺得令人可怕 - 就好像他們將看到,當你感到有點困惑的狀態,這樣的感覺。


你是一夫一妻?
是的。雖然它有時非常困難的,特別是如果你一段時間看不到對方。


你最後一次哭是什麼時候?
幾個星期前,我去醫院看一個朋友,她的情況惡劣,危及生命的疾病。當我看到她躺在那裡,我崩潰。只有這樣你意識到,所有的音樂和狗屎意味著什麼都沒用,唯一重要的是你的健康。在這樣的時候,你可以給你認識的人擁抱。你想:他媽的,讓給我一半的疼痛什麼的。太不公平了。

 

你多麼勇敢?
我很勇敢,我猜
當我19,我是來自一個弗里斯蘭省的小村莊移居柏林。當我回頭看,我想:耶穌,我怎麼做?我這樣做,持之以恆,這種狗屎。那麼我想,不管了,我只是沒有考慮後果。

誰教你最多?
我短短三年在柏林,和銀行的朋友睡,因為我沒有房子,沒有錢,沒有任何音樂工作,那是冬天 - 總之,一切都打擊。我有妄想症,焦慮症。然後,我的父親說,“來吧孩子,現在去只是為了一次。” 這是主要的教訓我學到:如果你想要的東西,你必須去要。

 

你看重一個女人的是什麼特質?
照顧。我喜歡那個愚蠢的男人偶爾需要有人照顧你。


你看重一個男人的是什麼特質?
同樣照顧,真的。有人在你身邊。雖然我是一個孤獨的人,從來沒有真正擁有。

 

如果你可以改變你自己,那會是什麼?
更多紀律方面和健身領域。


你如何放鬆?
通過健身運動。而這是很難的,因為我沒有什麼時間去做,所以我嘗試的最瘋狂的事情:在一間酒店的房間跳繩,遵循一些YouTube的指南,這些強壯的美國人告訴你必須如何伏地挺身,然後你自幾10次已經上氣不接下氣的......所有可能性。

 

你最喜歡誰?
這聽起來像陳詞濫調,但我還是最喜歡我周圍的人:我的家人和我的朋友們。我的電腦,我也很愛。我所有的音樂。


你相信上帝嗎?
是。但不是什麼在雲上的人。每個人都有,所以是我的想法,自己的神。神是你自己的真理。你是誰或你以為你是誰?如果你發現自己的神,你是真的自己可以在生活中更積極的方式和你散發出來的給其他人。


你最重視的?
網路。我要一直在線上和連接。會聽取到更多的反感。但這個想法,你總是隨時隨地有相關消息,我非常重視。


造成別人痛苦?
我是個壞朋友。我從來不為了某人。因為我是如此沉迷我的音樂,我為朋友和家人從未有過。沒有生日,沒有葬禮,沒有婚禮......我沒有做。我覺得一個人獨處多好。獨處是我的藥。這聽起來很生硬,但我比其他人更關心的是自己,而且永遠不會改變。

 

那你認為你最大的失敗?
我他媽的糟糕用錢。我不能處理它。我總是花太多在我需要的東西和我如此混亂,我忘了支付賬單。


你什麼時候最快樂?
去年夏天,我去希臘潛水。那美妙的海底世界......這就是這樣一個時刻,你看到美好的自然。我當時簡直就像世界。

 

什麼是生活最好的地方?
柏林。


誰是你希望永遠不想見到?
我的第一個經理。這傢伙讓我他媽的完了。他不僅是我的第一個經理,也是我的室友。任何事物都有,他偷走了我:我的錢我的東西,房租......有一天,我和一個朋友去申訴。作為一種比佛利山莊超級警探,我們既尋求他,一腳踢在他房間的門。週六,即出現他穿內褲在床上嚇得渾身發抖。超級可悲的旅客了。沉重的毒品。


如何避免意外呢?
加以注意。

 

你的座右銘是什麼?
活在當下。

(看完整個覺得他真的可愛到爆,我可以包容。我可以)

“Hylas”背後的概念
Hylas是希臘神話人物去一個小島上找水源。水仙女們愛上年輕英俊的Hylas,他被誘惑,並愛上了她們,她們把他拉進水裡並他淹死,並隨著故事的推移,成為其中之一。故事來自《變形記》。
“這本書是偉大的,因為它關於我多次談論的變化。有趣的是,我只是寫了這首歌,因為我的故事的啟發,等歌曲都是由我在柏林的新發現生命的啟發。直到後來明白所有的人之間的聯繫。我開始更深入挖掘。”

(Hylas是希臘神話一個青年,大力神海克力斯的伴侶。他長相非常俊美。海克力斯很喜愛這個男孩,像父親教兒子一樣傳授給他各種技藝。後來海克力斯帶著海拉斯一起加入阿爾戈英雄的隊伍去奪取金羊毛,在途中海拉斯到林中取水時,水中的寧芙迷戀於他的美貌,強行留下了他。 深深覺得難怪我小時候那麼愛看大力士)

再來回顧百聽不厭的
Thomas Azier - How To Disappear


For all I know it looks different now
This is my home, this is my home
All the windows look different now
Cause they are not yours, no they are not yours

How to disappear?
I'm just a bird on your bed,
I'll sing when you're sad

How to disappear?
I'm nothing more than a breeze
Can you feel me?

I've got all the dreams inside me now
The dreams of the world, the dreams of the world
But when it's time and the autumn comes,
Let me come home...

How to disappear?
I'm just a bird on your bed,
I'll sing when you're sad

How to disappear?
I'm nothing more then a breeze
Can you feel me?


〈Red Eyes〉是經典
Thomas Azier - Red Eyes



She could never be closer
And ever closer than tales can tell
But i can't fail

She could never be closer
And who's the one who casts the spell
Oh I can't tell

Pieces falling in the games we play
And even castles couldn't get away

Red Eyes

Her lips are around you
You feel the sweat against your skin
Oh the mess you're in

Pieces falling in the games we play
And even castles couldn't get away

Red Eyes

Pieces falling in the games we play
And even lovers couldn't get away



Thomas Azier - Shade of Black
https://soundcloud.com/thomasazier/shade-of-black

我非常喜歡這首,在問與答的時候有粉絲也很喜歡這首,想知道什麼原因促使他寫這首。Thomas Azier 說"〈Shade of Black〉是一首歌曲的靈感來自你最深的恐懼。它是如此可怕寫關於我的真實的恐懼,我花了一年聆聽效果,一次又一次。"

What inspired you to write Shade of black ? I love this song.
"Shade of black was a song inspired by your deepest fear. It was so scary to write about my true fear that it took me a year to listen to the result, again."

 


Thomas Azier - Angelene


這首仍是我最愛之一,有哪首不愛?
有股禪意,渾然天成

Angelene where could you be,
the skin on my chest feels so warm
I've been gone since the morning sun,
My lonely heart yearns for more

Angelene where have you been
I'm weary and stuck in my head
Marble skies in the evening sun
I'm lost and I carry the dead

Angelene where could you be
I dived and I swam with the ghosts
There's one sea between us now
That's just what kills me the most



Thomas Azier - Ghostcity


一首朗朗上口,讓人咆哮的歌

關於這首歌,關於他廢墟的工作室,那裡都沒有人。“尤其是當我工作,在晚上。所以感覺非常可怕的。花了這麼多時間生活在這個地方它改變了你,我覺得我是唯一一個遇到和遇到和城市狐狸在一起。”



Ghostcity, stay if you wanna; believe me, why don't we leave this town, can you see it now? Your lips suicide red, you know you shot me ‘cause you wanted me dead, can we leave this town, I’m an eagle now

These different shadows always following me
The cityfoxes are controlling the streets, won’t you leave me out here, won’t you leave me out here

‘Cause we are,
The only one alive in this town
When everything is going down
We’re becoming ghosts as well

Dark hair, covered in gold I keep forgetting everything I was taught
Can we leave this town, You believe me now?

These different shadows always following me
The cityfoxes are controlling the streets, won’t you leave me out here, won’t you leave me out here

‘Cause we are,
The only one alive in this town
When everything is going down
We’re becoming ghosts as well


Thomas Azier - Verwandlung


Too low to love you, somebody to hold, somebody to care for. And I would go back to the old lands I used to care for.

I’m so confused lying here alone locked up in my room.
Oh the night is cruel; You.
And there are no goodbyes; the only thing I know is that these walls have eyes. I see birds fly in V; You

Too low to love you, somebody to hold, somebody to care for. And I would go back to the old lands I used to care for.

Oh your fist so red, leather jacket collar up I’m dead.
And you hit me first, bit through my lips until they bled and hurt. And I feel so strange when the only one I know in this place‘s called Change. Running through my veins; You


Thomas喜歡的橋段
Thomas Azier - Verwandlung (Live Paris)


我也想要一起合唱。


Thomas Azier - Rukeli's Last Dance


The white - oak is waiting for the cut
Caked in flour, hair dyed blonde
All he ever wanted was to dance with the crowd around him
And now the’re gonna watch him fall

Looking down into his darkened eyes
The great white prize was held aloft
And all he ever wanted was to dance with the crowd around him. But now they’re gonna watch him fall

Take your turn, the floor is yours again
Flour and blood, mixed up, and your hair dyed blonde
Take your turn, the crowd is yours again
Covered in blood, messed up, ready to take them on, ready to take them on


畫面好有趣

超愛這首!

 


Thomas Azier - Hylas (live @ 3voor12 Radio)


She's on the run
Yellow flowers in her hair
The pressure is gone
She's got only her skin to share
She guides my way to find her trace
And through the forest we run
Through the forest we run

She pulls me down with her eyes
Into the water we slide

She knows it's her that I want
She can see through my deepest dreams
My eyes on the hunt
I want to see her naked skin
She guides my way to find her trace
And through the forest we run
Through the forest we run

They told me only to breathe

She pulls me down with her eyes
Into the water we slide, into the water we slide
She grabs my hand we unite
Into the water we slide, into the water we slide


Thomas Azier - Yearn Yearn現場


像是在跟你訴說什麼。

怎麼辦,他們對看著唱的表情,再看看歌詞

We’re fire, when we make love again
Don’t you know, it’s never over
We try but then we are miles away
Can’t you see, I can’t get closer
Remember we were building the sky, now our kingdom is crumbling down
Everything, Vertigo
And everything that I have to want is your body on top of me now
Summer Love, the Winter is Coming for us

Cuz’ there are pixels falling into my heart
And there is water falling onto the streets
I see the wrestle that we had in the dark
I feel your sweat dripping onto my knees
This summer rain never seems to end
And when I drive through the city by night
You are stuck on a screen
And I’m yearning, yearning

I burned because I fell into the depths of your heart
Can’t you see, I’m in the corner
And everything that I have to want is your body on top of me now
Summer Love, the Winter is Coming for us
Cuz’ there are pixels falling into my heart
And there is water falling onto the streets
I see the wrestle that we had in the dark
I feel your sweat dripping onto my knees
This summer rain never seems to end
And when I drive through the city by night
You are stuck on a screen
And I’m yearning, yearning

And I only tried to call you
And I only cry for you

Cuz’ there are pixels falling into my heart
And there is water falling onto the streets
I see the wrestle that we had in the dark
I feel your sweat dripping onto my knees
This summer rain never seems to end

粉紅色尖叫,命中紅心了,這首情歌~
Thomas Azier - 1000 Eyes


When dancing is over
You find your way home into the night
I want to get closer
I'm watching your curves in black and white
You're out of sight
I notice your bedroom light
You
Bloom

Well you can run away but I know where you hide
I'm longing for more my love I'm yearning to be by your side
My flame is strong I want to dance with you tonight
The night has a thousand eyes but I will love you right

When dancing is over
I want to take you for a ride
Your barenaked shoulders
They're make me glow into the night
I'll take you home
Silently, don't wake your mum
You
Bloom

Well you can run away but I know where you hide
I'm longing for more my love I'm yearning to be by your side
My flame is strong I want to dance with you tonight
The night has a thousand eyes but I will love you right


你怎麼能不愛Thomas Azier的音樂?
這從荷蘭來的小子,唱著英文,來到柏林完德國電子音樂,完全是一個史詩故事。

 

 

經過他二次開放的問與答時間,沒記錯的話他之前有一次也線上開放問答,覺得他實在非常可愛!不過有粉絲小惹怒他哈哈哈哈哈,讓他覺得懊惱。(他真的很重視耶)
得到超多個人資料,Thomas Azier真的是努力面對自己恐懼的藝術家。他的回答都很謙虛,從不覺得自己是個專業的表演者,但他在創作中也堅持自己想要的,這也就是每首歌為什麼這麼動聽。

//
Thomas Azier
26歲,8月14日生(他說:我是一個獅子..) 獅子好啊Thomas lol
喜歡酒紅色
喜歡巧克力
狗和貓都喜歡
最喜歡看的電影《惡靈古堡Damnation》 or 《嗑到荼靡/遁入虛無Enter the Void》 or 《男人的一半還是男人My own private idaho》...
(整個很爽,有點解開心中的0.001%小疑惑,基努李維演的gay片、Enter the Void超冷門藝術電影)

5個影響他的樂團/表演者
Adept (dutch band), Prince, Tuxedomoon, Echo & The Bunnymen, Roy Orbison, John Maus and many more

有人說"Is Oliver Sim from the XX your brother or what? Lol"
他回:No but maybe I'll meet him one day haha
一定要跟Oliver Sim認識,超像!!!

還有男生求婚,他的回答:Haha, not ready to marry, but thank you for the proposal!

//

And what is your favourite movie ? BTW. Have you ever heard about British band called Hurts ?
My favourite movie might be Damnation or Enter the Void or My own private idaho...

 

When did you noticed, that you want to do professional music?
I never really considered myself a professional haha. Just trying to write some music and connect to people...

 

I'm so glad I'm talking to you! Do you like pop music, if so what singer/ band do you like? 
who are your favorite musicians?
Too many too mention but I'm listening now to a record from Moonface: Julia in Blue Jeans. Great record..

Moonface 的唱片Julia In Blue Jeans

 

在其他採訪中有有提到前五名喜歡的藝術家/作家詩人

Fernando Pessoa ─ 葡萄牙詩人與作家。生前以詩集《使命》而聞名於世。他在文學上以「創造」性格聞名,稱這種寫作手法為「異名」。他的「自我」在某程度上深受一些宗教理念影響,如通神論思想及共濟會的宗教觀。故此「自我」的詩詞充滿神話及史詩式的氣魄,有時還有一種悲劇的味道。他作為一個普世主義(Universalism)詩人,他的世界觀可能受到東方及理性主義哲學思想所影響,顯得相當矛盾,他同時接受單一及多方面的世界觀。(他絕對影響Azier很大)
John Fante ─ 美國小說家,短篇小說作家,編劇。文學運動─骯髒的現實主義
Roy Orbison ─ 美國創作歌手,鄉村搖滾,鄉村,流行樂。是個特色和風格影響力很大的歌手
Kraftwerk ─ 德國電子樂教父
Ovid ─ 《變形記》作家

 

Hi Thomas ! My question is, would you consider writing / producing music for a movie (or a short movie) if someday a director asks you to ? Could it be something you'd enjoy ? And, is there a movie you wish you had "written" its soundtrack ? 
I would definitely consider it.

 

What's your favorite album of all time?
What do you think about Kid A?
What is your favorite movie of all time?
Kid A is my childhood!

 

Hi Thomas! What is the last book you read? And your favorite?
Fante - Ask the Dust & Johnny Got His Gun from Dalton Trumbo

 

使用的合成器
909, Yamaha DD50, AkaiAX73, M1, JX3P, MS20, Maschine, Korg AX800, Sherman Filter Bank, lot of software stuff, Cs01, Diesel VH4 and AAALLL the rooms in the factory where we recorded the album. This is our REAL studio..


Hi where have you met woodkid?:)
Through my booking agent: Junzi Arts. Then we met in Paris and hung out before going on tour together..

通過他們共同的預定代理:Junzi Arts 一起在巡迴後閒晃出去玩..

 

Hi Thomas Azier,
First off: amazing album.
Secondly: how hard was it for you to put together this album? Some tracks from the EPs didn't make it, some songs you probably left on the cutting room floor. How did you decide on this set of songs?
Thanks! Groetjes uit Nederland.
Thank you Thijs!! I always listen to my intuition. When songs are not ready I feel this in body. I don't eat well, sleep well and feel restless. Then I work, work work sometimes weeks and nights in a row to get it all in order. Then at some point something clicks, and I know it's good. This was the same process with the track listing of the album. It had to be the my story of the last 5 years. It took some time to compile because I had so many songs. But I knew it was right...


i m a singer,you inspire me now coz your voice is so pure and i d like to know wich artists inspire you the most ? how did you get inspiration i mean vocally ? it sounds like pop, lyrical and rock , you re incredible, i can t stop listening your album! congrats + thanks for real music , it means a lot to me you re fresh and real ! love X 10 000
Thanks Marc!! I appreciate this a lot.
