Tanya蔡健雅《遗书》

Tanya蔡健雅新碟主打《遗书》MV首播  联手导演余静萍诠释生命真谛 蔡健雅首次挑战一镜到底“雨中”情绪爆发拍摄新歌《遗书》MV Tanya蔡健雅全新MV《遗书》全网上线  《我要给世界最悠长的湿吻》黑胶版预售即将启动。蔡健雅2018全新大碟 《我要给世界最悠长的湿吻》 首波热单《遗书》正式版MV全网上线。对于这首已经推出一段时间,很多朋友都在等待的MV,Tanya解释说:“我认为这是一首需要走一段旅程的歌,所以MV的准备也花了一定的心思。”同时,这支对Tanya来说格为重要的MV要找谁拍,在她的心里一直只有一个人选,那就是余静萍导演。 《遗书》MV拍摄前,Tanya蔡健雅与导演余静萍曾多次接触,余静萍导演提出“雨水循环”的想法与蔡健雅想要在MV中体现的初衷和理念十足一致,因为二人共同认为这支MV的“主角”不是悲伤的,还要充满光明。对于脚本的创作,最终确定用“雨水”来讲述这个有关“遗书”的故事,而Tanya蔡健雅本人还提出了一镜到底的拍摄方案,让歌曲的情绪更加连贯。 在Tanya看来,降落的雨水灌溉大地又会蒸发到天上,再在适当的时机从天而落,整个不断循环的过程就像人的一生,其中有喜悦也有悲痛,但这就是人生的必经之旅。“雨水,是上天带给我们和大地的滋润。泪水,是我们人类流下来,还给世界,世界又会还给我们。生命就是一种不断的付出又得到。”蔡健雅如此精准的解读了她的心意。 MV的拍摄对于非演员身份的蔡健雅而言是非常艰难的,因为一镜到底对艺人定位、表情的要求必须连贯完整,为了达到导演的要求Tanya一共拍摄了五次,每次都要经历淋雨、吹干头发和衣服再次快速继续进入同样的情绪靠那一瞬间的默契爆发,直到所有镜头结束二人相互拥抱了彼此。更值得一提的是,拍摄现场《遗书》感性的歌词,需要加两倍速度对嘴拍摄,加上一镜到底的拍摄方式,令Tanya挑战了一次难忘的MV拍摄经历! 在拍摄花絮曝光后,有歌迷感概道:“越是害怕就越是不敢触碰,但当有一天真的接触到,领悟到,就会发现没有那么可怕,一切都已释然,想去告别,可是却发现这是重生,再见那个过去的自己,去开启新的篇章。每一次都被Tanya特别的巧思及细腻的作品深深感到,谢谢。”蔡健雅本人也希望大家会喜欢这首歌的MV,“真的能让你们可以去回顾你们的人生,并找到生命的珍贵”!MV上线后,有不少歌迷热议期待专辑中的多首单曲都可以拍摄MV,为此唱片公司环球音乐也表示近日将公布另一支MV内容,并且《我要给世界最悠长的湿吻》黑胶大碟正在进行最后的生产阶段,更多细节将于近期陆续公布,敬请期待! 

Amrita Soon invites you for “Familiar Strangers” album launch party The Bee, Publika, 23 February 2019

Come 23rd of February 2019, singer-songwriter Amrita Soon will officially launch her brand new album, “Familiar Strangers”, at The Bee, Publika. You can expect performances by songstress Beverly Matujal and acoustic pop tunes by Darien Foo. The party kicks off at 4pm and is scheduled to end by 7pm keeping it light and easy for everyone on a Saturday evening.IF A STRANGER IS FAMILIAR, WOULDN’T YOU BE FRIENDS?An introduction to “Familiar Strangers”:Stranger danger! Not really if they’re familiar? Would a familiar stranger make you friends? Let singer-songwriter Amrita Soon answer that for you. Launching her sophomore release, cleverly titled, ‘Familiar Strangers’, which features 7 tracks including the title track as well as ’24 years’, one of her favourite songs that tells a story of her grandparents. The album also features Malaysian Idol winner, Daniel Lee on the track, ‘Untitled’. ‘Familiar Strangers’, Amrita says was inspired by the month of December. She says, ‘It’s nostalgic to be living in December. Looking back on the year, holding on to the moments that are like fading photographs. Sometimes people change and it’s like you don’t know them anymore. Sometimes you’re the one who has changed, not them; and it’s the face in the mirror you no longer recognise. We’ve become strangers now, catching glances into each other’s eyes and bringing back glimpses into what was, but isn’t anymore.’The supporting track, ’24 years’ on the other hand is really a song about love inspired by her grandparents. ‘This song is a song about love. The kind of love that last forever and still feels like you’re falling in love for the first time. It’s about finding someone who knows you better than you do, and who can finish your sentences and someone you know you’re going to grow old with. I wrote this inspired by my grandparents, at a time when I thought love like that was only real in fairytales and movies. It was in the little things, like holding hands when they thought we weren’t looking or grandma making grandpa’s favourite meal that made me realise that sometimes the little things mean more than just saying those three words.’Amrita’s debut release was in 2014, a 5-track EP, ‘Clues’, possibly hinting at her journey of finding clues to what the future holds for her as an artist here in Malaysia. It was an EP that was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, USA where she had to opportunity to write with local greats like Ella Mae Bowen and Lance Carpenter. It was well received and that got her noticed by China based Malaysian production, pHMusic, which took her under their wing to produce the 2nd release. With a team of writers, producers and state of the art studio equipment, together they were able to bring ‘Familiar Strangers’ to life. This album shows a lot more maturity and is definitely a well-produced record. Imagine a young Taylor Swift when it was all chirpy and butterflies. 2019 is looking bright for Amrita Soon!See you this 23rd February 2019, 4pm onwards at The Bee, Publika for the launch of “Familiar Strangers”!
