蔣榮宗的藝術探索

這是一場作曲家的自我發現之旅,尋找原創音樂與東西方文化,以及與所有經典藝術結合的可能性。三年前,一次古典藝術的激盪,蔣榮宗創作了《大文藝復興》樂曲,這是發自年輕藝術家內心的悸動,借鑒了中世紀宗教與文藝復興的古音樂元素,將所有映入腦海中的藝術與文化素材,轉化為青春靈感的重現。融合古典管弦樂與現代電子音樂曲風,寫下了前所未有的音樂創作概念,音樂家不僅將音樂與視覺藝術,融合成色焰與音律的盛宴,也牽動了一代藝術大師李錫奇的心。

半世紀的音樂緣

一位是年過八十、現代藝術的探險家與時代創作大師,一位是方滿二十一、擁有無限創作力的青年作曲家,一甲子的歲月差異,其實早在1967年就有了交集。1960年代,李錫奇以方、圓變奏的抽象繪畫為哲思,開創了「本位」系列,其中1967年,漆畫創作《無題》,在類似幾何圖案的色譜變化中,以典型的華人民間傳統色彩:紅、藍與黑為鋪陳,探尋歐普藝術的中國表達方式。這張獨特的畫作,在音樂家眼中看來,像是融合黑膠唱片造型與CD光碟在光線折射下所展生的視覺音效。

於是,兩代藝術家開始有了更深層的溝通與連結,李錫奇在蔣榮宗的《大文藝復興》專輯中看到了年輕時代的自己,他由早期受到西方美術的薰陶,到結合中國傳統的養份,逐漸形成個人獨特藝術的面貌,《大文藝復興》一曲融合古今與創新的精神,著實令一代大師動容。藝術精神是一種互相感染、彼此激活的力量,李錫奇漆畫作中漆黑厚重的皺褶、光亮的重彩紋理,交替融合的現代結構與原始圖騰,則彷彿重力音樂,為音樂家啟發創作的音色,藝術的渲染力令他們成為忘年之交。

藝術家生命中獨特的存在

現代藝術的精神是讓藝術家創新,開創前人與他人未曾表現的創作,去發現存在於藝術家個體生命中的潛在特質。李錫奇以汲取當代生活做為創作養分,並堅持始終如一的現代與本位藝術理念,成就其獨樹一格的創作樣貌。在探索前衛藝術與歷史文化的驅使下,蔣榮宗讓聲音與視覺回歸至最懾人的交響樂創作,以「奇藝交響曲」向藝術大師李錫奇致敬,以最真摯的情感與生命力為《大文藝復興》重新編曲,並邀請上海弦樂團演出,來頌揚李錫奇無數的傑作。

ZONG Chiang’s Artistic Voyage

This piece represents the journey of a composer’s self-discovery, wherein one sought the perfect synthesis between one’s own compositions, the cultures of the East and the West, and all paradigms of the classics. Three years prior, intensely moved by the classical arts, ZONG penned The Great Renaissance. As the crystallization of a young artist’s reveries, The Great Renaissance takes inspiration from Medieval and Renaissance musical elements, which are further combined with ZONG’s own understanding of contemporary art and culture – all for the sake of perfectly capturing a moment of youthful inspiration. Fusing classical string instruments with contemporary electronic music, ZONG decidedly broke into new creative territory with The Great Renaissance. With this piece, not only did ZONG combine the visual arts and music into a lively banquet of color and melodies, but he also pierced the heart of a modern Maestro, that of Lee Shi-Chi.

Two Fates, Linked by Music

On the one hand, we have a towering Maestro, a trailblazer of modern art who has entered the eighth decade of his life; on the other hand, we have a young composer barely into his twentieth year, who brims with boundless passion and skill for the art of composition. Although a gulf of sixty years stand between them, a link began to form as early as 1967. In the 1960s, Lee Shi-Chi inaugurated his “Orientation” series of abstract paintings, a collection inspired by the variegated permutations of rectangular and spherical shapes. Particularly noteworthy is the 1967 painting Untitled: it explores how colors of Chinese folk tradition (red, blue, and black) could be expressed through Op Art forms, in the geometrical shape of a color-wheel. In the eyes of our young composer, Untitled perfectly encapsulates a soundscape of visuality created by overlaying the reflections of light on a CD surface over the foundations of a black vinyl record.

And thus two artists, from different generations, began to connect and communicate in more intimate and profound ways. ZONG’s The Great Renaissance deeply touched Lee Shi-Chi, as he saw his younger self in the melodies: the spirit in which The Great Renaissance combined the ancients and the moderns reminded Lee of his own odyssey, from his early training in the Western arts, to his employment of traditional Chinese elements, and to the gradual maturation of his artistic style. Here, we can observe how the force of art consists of mutual affection and reciprocal stimulation – the dark and heavy creases, as well as the patterns of bright Chinese colors in Lee Shi-Chi’s painting juxtaposes and coagulates modern structures with primordial totemisms. And like a visual recording of gravity itself, Lee’s painting inspired the young composer’s timbres, bringing the two into a time-transcending friendship via art’s affective powers.  

A Unique Moment in the Lives of Two Artists

What is the spirit of modern art, but the generosity that gives an artist the opportunity to break new ground, to create yet-unseen things, and to discover and let blossom the unique potential in their individual lives? And modern art rewards those with unwavering ideals: finding inspiration from the ins-and-outs of contemporary life, Lee Shi-Chi’s methodological insistence towards one’s Foundations and his attention to the Modern culminated into numerous idiosyncratic and visionary creations. Driven by an urge to explore avant-garde art and a sense of obligation towards history and culture, ZONG Chiang pays tribute to Lee Shi-Chi’s oeuvre with Fantastic Art Symphony, a stunning symphonic feast of tonality and visuality: a heartfelt and vital rearrangement of The Great Renaissance, ZONG invited the Shanghai String Orchestra to perform Fantastic Art Symphony alongside with him, all in order to celebrate the ingenious works of art gifted to the world by the Maestro, Lee Shi-Chi.

曲目解析:

1. 大文藝復興~奇藝交響曲   The Great Renaissance(symphony Ver.)

《大文藝復興 ~ 奇藝交響曲》是以李錫奇最喜愛的蔣榮宗《大文藝復興》作品原曲所改編。奇藝交響曲版本融合了更豐富而昇華的弦樂變化,以及Synth Pluck電子音效,來展現藝術大師戲劇化的生命歷程,以及其作品中充滿快意、絢爛、奔騰等等元素,鮮明而多變的的視覺感官。前奏由戰鬥般的節奏感開場,傳達藝術家獨特的自由思維,以及為藝術思想奮戰的可貴;曲末則以進擊的鼓聲與弦樂撥奏,象徵真正的藝術是持續不斷的進化,彷彿藝術大師李錫奇生命的史詩,一個藝術時代的創造者,其人與其創作仍為進行式。

1. The Great Renaissance (Symphony Ver.) – Fantastic Art Symphony

The Great Renaissance (Symphony Ver.) – Fantastic Art Symphony is a rearrangement of Lee Shi-Chi’s favorite piece of ZONG’s music, The Great Renaissance. In order to represent the Maestro’s artistic journey, Fantastic Art Symphony includes richer and more refined variations of the strings, which is further combined with Synth Pluck electronic effects. The piece places a heavy emphasis on the sensations of lightness, grandeur, and swift galloping, sonic elements that enliven the listener’s visual faculties. The grand rhythms of a decisive skirmish dominate the introduction, expressing the boundless freedom that the artist inhabits, as well as the combative urgency of defending one’s artistic beliefs. Fantastic Art Symphony, an epic poem dedicated to the life of the Maestro, Lee Shi-Chi, ends with a barrage of drums and the pizzicato of string instruments, symbolizing that true art will never cease to evolve: as the vanguard of an artistic epoch, one’s self and one’s creations are constantly in the flux of becoming.

2. 大文藝復興   The Great Renaissance

《大文藝復興》原曲收錄於蔣榮宗《榮耀時刻II》原創配樂首部曲專輯中。創作靈感來自歐洲文藝復興初期,曲風融合了古典管弦樂與現代電子樂的鮮明印象,樂曲廻盪著神祕、探索,甚至詭譎的氛圍。這是作曲家首次受到古典藝術的感召,發自內心的悸動,也引爆了蔣榮宗日後一連串將音樂與純藝術融合的創作契機。

2. The Great Renaissance

The Great Renaissance was originally included in ZONG’s Moment of Glory II: The First Original Score. Inspired by the music of the early Renaissance period, the piece combines classical string instruments and modern electronic music in a fresh and exciting manner. Carving out a soundscape of searching mysteriousness and even a tingling sense of unease, The Great Renaissance is a milestone for ZONG, for it stands as a testament to his first true encounter with classical art. In the beginning, it was just a stir in his bosom, but what resulted from this was a series of experimentations from ZONG that sought to marry the transcendental beauty of music and art.
