寫給聽眾的話

Dear listener,
親愛的聽友:

10 is a big number, but I feel as if I’ve only just begun. It’s been an honor and a thrill to be a part of the ever-evolving Chinese music scene since 1995’s release of my first album, “Qing Di Beethoven”. Since then, I have constantly challenged and experimented, letting the music take me on a journey I could never have in my wildest dreams imagined. I feel as if I’ve been “there and back again,” seen so much, hear so much, dance so much, and yet…”Xin Zhong De Ri Yue”, now my 10th album, marks the beginning of a completely new journey.
10是個很大的數字,但我覺得自己彷彿還只剛開始。自從1995年發行第一張專輯「情敵貝多芬」至今,很榮耀、也很興奮能在日漸成長的華語樂壇,成為當中的一份子。打從那時起,我不斷地挑戰和實驗,企圖讓音樂帶領我超越想像以外、最狂野的夢。一切就好像是「歷險歸來」,看過許多事、聽過許多聲音、跳過許多舞,而後的是現在這第10張專輯「心中的日月」,標誌著一段全新旅程的開始。

The album’s conception started with the following premises:
這張專輯的概念是始自幾個前提:

1) Though Chinese presence grows in the global community, the world’s understanding of Chinese people, pop culture and music still lags behind. As much as we hate to admit it, we are still faced with age-old stereotypes and unjust prejudices that need addressing.
1) 雖然華人已在全球經濟展露頭角,但世界對華人還有其流行文化、音樂的了解還是遠遠落後。我們不想承認,但是目前還是得面臨別人多年來的刻板印象和不公平的成見,這些都是需要釐清的。

2) Chinese pop music does not have a strong enough sonic identity. Instead of being purely karaoke driven, instead of covering or imitating other countries’ popular songs, we can focus on developing our own sound, drawing from the rich resources that abound in Chinese culture.
2) 華語流行音樂並沒有一個夠強烈的聽覺身分,除了創作卡拉OK曲、除了翻唱或模仿其他國家的流行歌曲外,我們可以把焦點放在發展我們自己的聲音,試著從中華文化的豐富資源中去探求。

Then, I coined the term “chinked-out”. Derived from the historically derogatory racial slur “chink”, used to out-down Chinese people, “chinked-out” repossesses the word, turns its negative connotations upside-down, and uses them as material to fuel the new sound of this music. The term describes an effort to create a sound that is international, and at the same time, Chinese. In this album, I decided to implement some of China’s most precious and untapped resources, the musics of its “shao shu min zu,” or ethnic minorities, concentrating on the regions of Yunnan, Shangri-La, Tibet, Xinjiang and Mongolia. This is NOT one of those “world music” CDs. It’s an R&B;/hip-hop album that creates a new vibe the whole world can identify as being Chinese.
於是,我創了一個新名詞「中式嬉哈(chinked-out)」。這是源自”chink”(譯註:原意為中國佬、清奴)--一個長久以來被援用來輕視華人的字眼,但「chinked-out」重新定位了原本的詞,完全轉化其原有的負面涵義,新名詞使用這些內涵作為激發音樂新聲音的材料,用以形容我們努力創造很國際、同時很華人的新聽覺。在這張專輯裡,我注入一些中國最珍貴而尚未被拿來運用的資源,比方說少數民族的音樂,尤其是雲南、香格里拉、西藏、新疆和蒙古等地區。然而,這「不是」張世界音樂專輯,它仍是R&B;/嬉哈音樂、一張創造了全世界可定位為華人音樂的新作品。

非常非常棒的一張專輯,很多創意,很多驚喜,很多感動~
leehom如同為我們打開了一扇窗,新鮮溫煖的空氣充斥心房~
聽了專輯以后給你髮過一封聽后感,不知收到沒?(附在后面了)
今天由于時間的關繫,一會兒就要趕飛機了,但是突然髮現這個站從新開放了,知道這裏的留言妳最有機會看到,所以還是不由自主的想說幾句~
新專輯做得非常成功,很多歌都成了熱門,相信又很多歌迷錶達了自己的喜愛,我就不多言了.但是想說說,非常喜歡這首歌,如同,一聽就是leehom的,很有你的代錶性和獨特的風格,也非常期待這首歌的英文版以及你的英文專輯~!
最近你週圍有一些紛擾,希望你不要在意,rvolution總是會有一些爭議的,但是也終有價值被承認的一天.珍惜你所用心付齣的,不要煩惱于那些沒有意義的過眼雲煙~
BE YOURSELF~!
happy new year~!

附信:
期待你的新專輯一年多,等待的過程好像是等待一場未知的旅程,而儅買到《心中的日月》放在CD機裏時,我知道我走進了一個叫leehom的世界:)這是一段充滿驚喜的旅行!
這張專輯是一張非常具有可聼性的專輯,也是目前爲止我最喜歡的一張專輯!真的很成功,祝賀你!
說實話,現在的華語專輯可聼的真的不多,也許每張有那麽一兩首還不錯,可是整張聼下來往往會失望,如果有四五首好聽的話就已經算賺到了。謝謝你在這個時候帶來了這張專輯,也帶來了對華語音樂的信心!
整張專輯我覺得最成功的是概念架構很完整,這也是你的專輯不同于一般華語專輯的特點。從Intro開始到最後一首歌結束,你的專輯就像是一個完整的作品,有一種一氣呵成的感覺(《永遠的第一天》這張專輯讓我第一次注意到這種完整性)。
而你這次Chinked-out的風格也體現在專輯中,將中國古代音階和少數民族音樂融合在hip-hop曲風中是一個新鮮感十足的idea!
我覺得整張專輯的歌質素都很高,十首歌每一首都很獨特,都有屬於自己的生命力,但是放在同一張專輯裏卻又那麽和諧。
很欣賞你的編曲,有很豐富的層次性,聼得越多,發現越多的驚喜。就好像“Intro”中龍的傳人的旋律,“心中的日月”高音合音,“在那遙遠的地方”中的兒化音和一種口腔發出的節奏聲,“星座”中塤的聲音都感覺躲在暗處卻又很強耳,這也是你的專輯可聼性很強的一個原因,《不可思議》我就一整年都不時地聼,每每聼,每每有不同:)2005年有你的專輯的陪伴,相信會有許多聽覺的驚喜。
另外,我覺得這張專輯的主打歌選得不錯,以前你的專輯選的主打歌我覺得都不如專輯中其他的更能代表你,但是這次“心中的日月”和專輯主體很貼切讓人印象深刻。
以往聼你的抒情歌感覺旋律很動人,但是好像很少(“永遠的第一天”還蠻感動的)能觸及聽者情感致命的那一處,但是這次的“forever love”“愛錯”聼的時候都哭了,也許不是悲傷的哭,但是確實被感動了!
這張專輯唯一遺憾的是沒有收錄英文歌,上張專輯我最喜歡的就是“Not Your Average Thug”,也許你是在為你的英文專輯做準備吧?很期待你的英文專輯,希望會在内地發行:)
從高中開始聼你的歌到現在即將準備考法律研究所已經7年了,謝謝你的專輯一直陪伴着我,給我愛的信心,勇氣與鼓勵,有時候縂覺得音樂家是上帝派給人類的天使,而音樂則是最奇妙的禮物,能撫平互相傷害的創傷,能帶來希望的力量!
最近你一直處在宣傳期,非常的忙碌,但希望你能照顧好自己的身體。
我想這是一封你永遠看不到的信,無論如何,我只是想表達一種支持,希望你能永遠Be Yourelf,也帶給我們更多好聽的音樂!

I'm so happy I found this site. Your music is what helped me live through my exchange period. I was an exchange student in Taiwan and my first week there my host mother bought me your "Unbelievable" album. Whenever I was sad about missing Michigan, I would just listen to your music. Now I am back in Michigan going to college of Music Industry Management, and because of your music I know I want to deal with artists just like you. I hope to pick up your new album this summer. I'm sure I'll love it.

Hello!I don't want to say something like I am a big fan of yours or whatever,just I want to let you know eventhough I don't understand a single word from your Chinese songs but I like them.Frankly, I don't listen to your songs because you are so popular but because I think you are unique and hopefully you stay that way.I also listen to Stephanie Sun's songs because the same reason.

Please I want You New Album Lyrics, thanx a lot

Posted by: Billy Dann at April 22, 2005 03:41 PM

Wang Lee Hom, I Like your style man, oh ya, could you send me your new album lyrics to my E-Mail, please, 'coz it's hard to find the lyrics, thanx a lot, I'm your fans.

Posted by: Billy Dann at April 22, 2005 03:44 PM

Leehom,you are so fantastic!I really appreciate you!Anyway,I hope you can see our fans' comments,you are Shangri-la in our heart!
Your new album is really teriffic,songs in it are really so great that I enjoy them every night,then gradually I fell asleep....
Nowadays,there are so many paricy in the album market ,in my opinion,I think there must be something wrong with the singers,the fact that not all the songs in one album are so attractive ,maybe only one or two songs can make them feel satsfaied, so the fans don't want to buy the whole album,then every singer have one good song ,then this situation offer a chance to paricy,they will produce a mix CD or VCD which hold every singer's best song,not the hold album,but Iwant to say, you take a challege to them ,your new album is great,songs are really worth enjoying again and agian,so this situation is very promising ,fans are running to your album to buy it to enjoy.
I want to add,there is no need for you to pay attation to the comments that are not so good to you,your music can be proved great as time went by, do what you want to do ,don't care others.
finally, wish all things goes well!May happiness with you wherever you are!You should believe ,you are happy,not lonely,you have the most precious treasure(just as your lyrics in the song called >(一首简单的歌))------our fans ,we are your most precious treasure!!God bless you!good luck!

第一次感觉这张专辑的魅力是从我才三岁的小弟弟的身上发现的,他非常可爱,是个中日混血。他听了你的歌眼睛就直了,一动不动的在细细的聆听!你的歌就是你的歌,别人不能取代!
十年仅是一个开始,以后的路还很长,佩服你的原因只有一个,你诚心诚意为音乐的心正在影响着每一个听到你音乐的人,知道你的进步与努力,音乐风格可以不断改变,但是歌迷支持你的心永远不变!!!

What a talented person and clean living singer that is very difficult to find these days.
I think you have created a very special blend of music and I hope you will go forward to explore more for the Chinese music scene

I also hope you will find your true love soon and I think you will have to leave Taiwan to find that special person who can appreciate you and your talent. That special person will not be in Asia. So I hope you can spread your wings and let EVERYONE in the world to appreciate your music and talent.

Please create some French lyrics with Chinese musical notes, it will be a terrific combination and I think you can do this as I have heard one of your song in French

Your devoted fan (an old lady)

Dear Leehom,

Being a fan of yours since the album "Wei Yi" and tracking your progress ever since then, I've realised that you've indeed made a huge and rapid progress in your composing and song arrangement skills. You've indeed created your own niche, sound and identity that belongs solely to you, impossible to be immitated. Good job!
All the best for your concert tomorrow and the day after! I'm all ears. :)

Posted by: Li Vyen at June 30, 2005 05:34 PM

leehom, your music is superb! i seriously admire u as u know how to play quite a number of instruments... it's really amazing.. i may b too young to know musics but seriously, by listening to your lyrics n voice, i know you're absolutely great!

Posted by: ywen at July 16, 2005 01:37 AM

I've recently found out about Lee Hom Wang's music a few weeks ago. And I love it! :D I found out about him from this dude I know. And then, saw him in Moon Child, which was a very good movie. Every since I found out about his music talents, I'm going crazy for him!! :D And after reading some of his journal entries. He seems to be really funny and adorable.. Very adorable. I just love his personality.. It's so cute. Way cute. LOL. :D I hope I get to meet him one day. :P One day... But for now. I'll just stick with his music. Keep it up Lee Hom! Thank you for your music.! I love it!! :D

Posted by: Samantha Yang at October 30, 2005 02:50 AM

hi leehom,

thanks for bringing us into your music. thank you so much!

keep going and we will always support you.

no music no life

cheers,
lilian

P.S. my favourite is 竹林深處!

Posted by: Lilian at November 6, 2005 02:57 PM

'Wei Yi' (The One and Only) was the first Chinese song which I listened to seriously. Because of this song and album, I got back in touch with my Chinese roots.

Shangri-la has the most unique combination of music elements so far and I'm really clicking with it although I found 'zhu lin shen chu' irritating at first. Now, it's the non-Lee Hom music fans who live under the same roof as me who are irritated with my daily playing of Shangri-la.

Keep it up and am looking forward to more surprises in your music!

Posted by: Belinda at November 18, 2005 11:43 PM

Your New Album "Heroes of Earth" is amazing.
I love it! Chinked-out Music Rules!!!
I think you've find out the right path. Nice try!

Posted by: Luna at January 8, 2006 12:49 AM

Hi,Lee Hom
In your new album,"Heroes Of Earth",i admire "kiss goodbye" only.Your voice is very suitable to sing a romantic(pop)song.Hope in the next album can hear more from you.
It's quite hard to find your song's lyric.i mean "pin yin".You dont have a website that contain a "pin yin"lyric.
Wish you luck.

Posted by: 月缘 at January 15, 2006 05:36 PM

hey.......i'm ur biggest fan...i love u so much....but i never got the chance to see u... but i will always support u no matter wat.....

Posted by: rachel at March 22, 2006 12:36 AM

Hello,

I was in Malaysia for a holiday, and they played your musics in the shop, but one song hit me so hard " Kiss Goodbye" so I bought your new album straight away. It's a very nice song even though my chinese is so poor... Keep doing good musics !!

Posted by: Ploy at March 31, 2006 06:13 PM

an excellent artist!!! keep up the natural musician in you... your music inspires people to reach for their goals and to believe in their abilities as an individual. 加油!!!

Posted by: bonita at June 14, 2006 03:11 PM

i know myself is already a bit out la, now only post a comment.. hahaha... wat i can say bout this talented artist is that: in my life, without his songssssss, i dont know wat else can i do for my free time.....and in fact, his music actually motivated me to study( it means i can only study while listening to his music)... serious la, no joke....
gambate leehom, i will ALWAYS support you.....
