No Music, No Life / 沒有音樂,談何生活

(按此看中文版)

Music, a magical world of which we can indulge ourselves into all emotions;
Music, a tiny spark that lights up the dull darkness;
Music, a paradise in which we can stay who we are without worrying about being judged by others;
Music, a word to be interpreted into thousands of meanings.

This year’s Halloween week came with not only “ghosts and spirits” but some different excitement as well. The much-anticipated Joint-hall Jam Nite was organized by Hall 10 in Multi-function Hall C on 27 October 2016. When I entered MFH C, the helpers were busy setting up the fancy stage with light bulbs of different colors, snacks and drinks, and all the technical devices. More performers were there to join the acoustic feast than last year. Taking a closer look at the performance list, I saw solo singing, musical instrument ensemble, semi-chorus and so on. All of which were in distinctive styles. The Violin duo duet MA Ruoying (Year 2, Total Quality Engineering) and LI Jiamin (Year 2, Computer Science) from Hall 10 was filled with ups and downs when performing “Koi Copy”. The semi-chorus “When” by mixed-hall performance group A Sharp was intoxicating and skillful; while the Flute and Piano Ensemble “The Changing Seasons” by ZHANG Dingyu (Year 2, Applied Sociology) and me was gentle and beautiful with a hint of sadness.

LEI Sasa (Residence Tutor, Hall 10, Year 1, MA Integrated Marketing Communication), one of the organizers of the Jam Nite, was a great singer herself. To appreciate all the performers and audience present, she decided to sing one song by her favorite Taiwanese singer: Hebe TIEN. It was the second residence activity she involved as a PIC since she became a Residence Tutor. “Although I’ve just finished my tough midterm, and felt quite tired as I worked till late night, I never regret what I have contributed to the Jam Nite. Luckily, it was successful!”

At the Jam Nite, you could appreciate music presented by people across different cultural backgrounds, make friends with like-minded people and exchange your opinions about music, and find everyone tied by an invisible bond simply because you share a similar music taste!

Music makes us one. It connects us regardless of language barriers and cultural differences. One will never feel lonely as long as he/her is with music.

No music, no life. Let’s thrive with music!

音樂,是一個讓人放縱萬千情緒的世界;
音樂,是一點能照亮漫長黑夜的火花;
音樂,是一片讓眾人保持本色返璞歸真的樂土。
音樂的確就是這樣一個有著無數解讀的詞彙。

今年的萬聖節週不只有「鬼魂」,還有一些其他的精彩節目等著你。沒錯,由舍堂十主辦,萬眾期待的聯舍音樂之夜在10月27日在宿舍綜合禮堂C拉開序幕。當我走進禮堂C的時候,現場的工作人員正忙著搭建舞台、裝飾燈、準備小食等等。今年參加表演的人比去年更多。看看表演清單就知道了,有個人獨唱、樂器合奏、小合唱等等。所有的表演都風格各不相同。舍堂十小提琴二重奏馬若滢(全質量安全監控工程學系二年級)和李嘉敏(電腦科學系二年級)演出的《錦鯉抄》 跌宕激昂,小合唱A Sharp 演唱的《當》 則令人陶醉不已,還有由我和張丁予(舍堂十,應用社會學系二年級)鋼琴長笛合奏 《季節回轉》 柔和婉約,帶著淡淡的惆悵。

音樂之夜的策劃者之一,舍堂十導師李莎莎(整合營銷傳播文學碩士生一年級)實際上是個深藏不漏的唱將。為了對在場的表演者和觀眾表示感謝,她決定在活動最後上台唱一首她最愛的台灣歌手田馥甄的歌。被問及有關組織這次活動的感想時,莎莎說這是她成為宿舍導師之後第二次作為策劃人參與的宿舍活動。「雖然我剛剛經歷了忙碌的期中考試,雖然我每次忙到深夜的時候都覺得很累,但是我完全不後悔我對這次音樂之夜付出的時間!而且這次活動很成功!」

在音樂之夜,你可以欣賞到來自不同文化背景的人帶來的音樂表演;你也可以和許多志同道合喜愛音樂的人成為新朋友;你會發現大家因為共同的音樂愛好而被無形的紐帶系在一起!

音樂讓我們成為一體。跨越語言的障礙和文化的鴻溝,音樂也能將我們連系在一起。有音樂在,我們永遠不孤單。

沒有音樂,談何生活?和音樂一起,創造無限美好。
