Off-Topic: My Saxophone Performance-29.Dec.2009

Allow me to post something about myself……..

今天晚上是台大薩克斯風社的季末成果發表會,我早早就報名要參與,哪知今天早上發現我的那把Saxophone聲音怪怪的,趁著中午休息趕緊拿去樂器行檢修,我的運氣可真是背到極點,到了樂器行,裡頭的人說,修理Sax的師傅休假中。。。。。
剛好有位從蘆洲來的技師,就說先幫我看一下。哇,感激涕零,But…災難還沒結束,這位技師檢查了下說: 我的Sax漏氣很嚴重,今日無法修好,問我很急著要用嗎?晚上要上台吹奏了,我只好跟他說看能否緊急處理一下。同時,我趕緊打電話給以前的Sax老師問他是否有多的Saxophone可以借我一把,老師很快的答應可以借我一把Tenor Sax。我的那把終歸是無法立刻處理好,只好留在那靜待師傅休假後回來幫我看。除了這個緊急意外事件還加上早上我不小心扭到左腳踝,導致行動不便,有點跛行,真是什麼狀況都撞在一起。

Anyway,我順利拿到一把Tenor Sax,晚上到了現場,吃了Pizza喝了飲料後開始抽籤排表演順序,第一位被抽到的人沒來,我是第二位,自然就順勢遞補變成首位上場表演的人。吼吼,這算是幸運嗎 。表演開始,In a Sentimental Mood前面吹的還算順利,但哪知道到了中間間奏的時候,負責播放音樂的老師以為我吹完了,就把音樂fade out,然後卡了…..Orz。我說我還沒吹完耶,也怪我自己沒準備即興solo,所以讓他誤解我的吹奏結束了。還好後來他們讓我有 2nd chance,所以下面放的影片是第二次上場的表演,而且是我要求要多吹一首Close to You。因為 Close to You 是臨時追加的,所以我才看譜吹。昨天真的狀況連連,definitely not my day。

始終練的不夠純熟,所以還是發生失誤,但總之我吹完了,用不是自己的樂器表演完兩首歌,感謝到現場幫我錄影的朋友,以下就是我兩首歌曲表演。

P.S. 比較悶的是這星期我都沒樂器可以練了,調整要下禮拜才會好,我想念我的Tenor889

OK, let me translated my article……..

 

Today, actually last night the school sax club that I joined held an announcement campaign。I applyed to perform very early.
But in the morning I found the sound of my tenor sax was strange, therefore I took my sax to musical instrument shop for repairing at noon.
So bad luck for me today, because when I was in the instrument shop, the salesman told me the repairman was day-off today.  

there is a technician who is from other store said he can check for me. Wow so happy…but my disaster was not over.
After a few checking, this technician told me my sax’s problem is serious, he can’t fix it within today, need more times.

I have to call my sax teacher to lend me one, let me can finish my performance. more over, my left ankle injured, just so many conditions happened in one day…

Finally, I got another tenor from my teacher.  Been to the event place, after eating some pizza and drinking, they start to make lot to decide the performance order,the first one was not there, I am the 2nd, so I became the first one! Can this call good luck for me?  

The show time, it went smoothly at the begining when I playing “In a Sentimental Mood” but in the middle, the interlude of the music, the person who charged playing music thought my performance finished, he fade out the music and stop it…orz 。I said my playing is not over! Blame me didn’t prepare solo for the middle interlude so he misunderstood my performance was over. Fortunately, they gave me 2nd chance, so the on-line videos was my 2nd times performance, and I asked to play one more song- “Close to You”。Yesterday really happened many conditions, definitely not my day, ha. Anyway, I finished 2 songs playing even though I made mistakes due to not practicing enough.

Thanks my friend for filming my playing and enjoy your watching, even though it’s not a good performance.

P.S. I can’t pratice sax this week due to the repairing, sigh……..it made me felt little lonely, I missed my tenor889

    我不太懂音乐,但是和Laura一样的感觉,很不错哦!

  2. Wan and catts says:

    m_nn, 這你倒是說的不錯, 所以我雖然基本功練的還不錯, 吹出來的音色飽滿, 但到現在還是不太會抓拍子。然後我就會得過且過想, 反正是吹Jazz, 不用那麼死板守規則, 哈哈。BTW, 感謝啊! 我喜歡人家跟我聊音樂~~~。

  3. m_nn says:

    总之吹奏太复杂,又要呼吸又要保持旋律的。。。换我得要憋死,,,哈哈还吹不响!!!wanwan新年快乐!!!一切顺利~~~

  4. Wan and catts says:

    @晨: 影片上我有寫歌曲名, 第一首是"In a Sentimental Mood" , 第二首是木匠兄妹/ The Carpenters的"Close to You" @m_nn: 其實我覺得Sax還好, 因為有竹片, 我個人是覺得喇叭需要的肺活量會比較大, 因為那完全要靠自己吹, 沒有吹嘴竹片幫助震動共鳴. 雖然我沒吹過喇叭, 但大概可以想像會很費勁。and 我也不會噓口哨的說 XDD。

  5. says:

    这首曲子叫什么名字呀?很厉害的啊

  6. m_nn says:

    哈哈我当时就去YOUTUBE看了,但就一直没得空登陆评论。。。太厉害啦,WANWAN。。。俺最羡慕会吹奏的人。。。肺活量一定很大吧。。。而且要多么神秘的技巧阿,,,我两声口哨都嘘不好~~~

  7. Steven says:

  8. Wan and catts says:

    Steven, 雖然這個Space是Zhenya Kanaeva Gymnasium, 但這是我的space, 我要寫什麼文章都可以再說, Zhenya很早就看過我吹sax的樣子了(在她寫給我的信裡說過 ), 別忘了, 她有空時會來這看, 這個space的第一篇文章放的就是我第一次上台吹Sax的影片. 如果你覺得我語氣有點重, 抱歉, 但說實話, 你的這個回應讓我不舒服我有的朋友不能看Yahoo Blog, 有人是只在公司上網, 但他們不能看yahoo, 這篇文章也有po我yahoo blog, 我兩個地方都放是希望我的朋友都能看

  14. alyona says:

    Zoe! Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful videos and photos! I believe it had been a hard day for you. But life is like this – very often we need to overcome difficulties. Otherwise it would be too boring to live )))). Particularly I liked \’\’Close to You\’\’ because the melody reflects my holiday mood perfectly! It made me smile, thank you!!!
