James Franco?

Yesterday was Day 1 of my MV shooting for one of my new songs "世界拆散我們". The director said this shot reminded him of US actor James Franco. Not sure I'm quite as handsome, but I'm pretty certain I could never cut my own arm off like he did in his film  :P

New album "RISING" launched!

Go get your copy at the nearest music retailer![](/attachments/2012/07/19/15/469373_201207191548121.thumb.jpg)Why I decided to name my fourth album "RISING":RISING對我的意義是多層次和極之豐富的。 這代表了一種阻擋不了的上昇動力 ,充滿生機和創意 ,正是我在這個城市強烈感受到的音樂未來。

我一向熱愛與不同風格的創作人合力製作音樂 ,從中汲取了珍貴的養份 ,實在是過程中最大的得益者 !我在邀請一系列的音樂人為這張專輯監製、作曲、填詞的同時 ,亦强烈的意識到自己正在参與了一個「音樂起義」的聯盟。

Eric Kwok、Edward Chan、張敬軒 、陳台證 、方大同和我的啓蒙老師趙增熹 ,都是在本地樂壇走得最前的音樂人 ,他們各自以獨特的創作和演繹方式 ,走出新音樂方向 ,帶動新音樂文化。他們的參與 ,體現了 RISING這個概念 ,讓「音樂起義」這個意識強烈的躁動起來。

在我努力尋找音樂節奏的靈魂的同時 ,非常幸運碰上了對新聲音、新音樂文化充滿熱情的填詞人 :崔惟楷、周耀輝、林若寧、小寒、陳詠謙、張敬軒、林夕,都別具個性 ,透過流行音樂為這個新世紀創作詩篇。

“RISING” 和 “超越”

以往創作專輯時都習慣以清晰的概念為藍本進行 :無論是以舞台感為中心的《超越聲音》﹐以融合東西方文化為主題的《超越東西》﹐抑或是以突破自我為主題的《超越格式》﹐都是依照這模式完成的。經過了三次的嘗試﹐我意識到這樣創作在不知不覺間給自己帶來了包袱。

這些無形的包袱來自一種過份執著要達至 “完整概念 ”所導致的局限和壓力。為了要 “超越 ”過往《超越》系列的框框﹐我決定把之前所認識的王梓軒放下﹐找來了一些在音樂上自己信任的伙伴作自我挑戰﹐看能否透過他們的耳朵和觸覺發掘一把新聲音。收獲真是意想不到 -新組合讓我盡情穿越了一個又一個的嶄新領域﹐戰勝了一個又一個的心魔;就連合作已久的戰友們都感受到這股力量的衝擊。

原來創作音樂﹐若能勇敢豁出去﹐純然由心出發﹐就算沒有刻意修飾﹐方向也可以如此明確。回顧這一年的作品﹐我只能以 “RISING”來形容。 “RISING”從此就代表著那阻擋不了的靈感 - 以音樂起義的躍動。

衷心感謝為這唱片努力過的每一位朋友。

New Beginnings

February 1, 2012 How time has flown!  With this article, I will have completed one whole year of sharing my thoughts with you, my readers.  Appropriately, this also marks my final submission as a writer to this column.  While I will surely miss you all, it is true that all things (even good ones) must come to an end.

As is often the case in life, the end of one thing becomes the beginning of another.  For me, today has come to signify the official start to what is looking like an exciting new year of the dragon.  

Now, is today really such a special day?  What makes today the official start and not tomorrow?  Why not the first of January?  Well, the answer is quite simple: it is because I said so.  I told myself that today would be the end to all the things I set out to cleanse my life of and that from this day forth, I will work harder to become the man I want to be.  I told myself that today and everyday after would become the most important days of my life.  I also told myself that today will become the end to everything I thought I knew and the first of many moments in personal re-discovery. 

You may be curious as to where this sudden resolve comes from.  To be honest, I’m not entirely sure myself.  Maybe it’s my upcoming Mandarin album, solo concert, stage musical and other challenging career developments.  Maybe it’s my recent realization that I can and should be so much better for my family, loved ones and friends.  Maybe it’s all of the above.  What’s important though, is that I made a decision.  And you can too.

If there’s something you don’t like in your life, change it.  If there’s something your heart says you need to do, do it.  If there’s something you want to be, be it.  You don’t need the New Year, your birthday, graduation or a promotion to tell you when you can change your life.  Today is the day.

January 3, 2012 As we all step into the year 2012, many of us will commence the annual ritual of making New Year’s resolutions.  If you’re like me, you might be thinking back on trials and triumphs of the past year, while forming goals that might help make the coming one even better.  Reviewing my resolutions from years passed though, I realized something quite interesting: some goals are not meant to be achieved.  

Now this may not sound very optimistic at first glance, but I assure you, I am thinking in a most positive manner.  In my lists, I found two main types of goals: “realistic” and “unrealistic”.  In the “realistic” category, are achievable long and short goals formed mainly as plans for timely and organized action (e.g. learning to play the guitar).   Decidedly “unrealistic” goals however, have quite a different purpose; they exist mainly to inspire and motivate (e.g. to become Asia’s most influential singer in a year’s time).

 

Like the example I gave above, “unrealistic” goals are not necessarily designed to be achieved (at least not without some kind of miracle).  On the contrary, failing gallantly at them becomes the point.  Why?  Because the process of striving for something so distant is almost guaranteed to transform us in ways that more realistic goals cannot.

Don’t get me wrong though, I am by no means encouraging you all to fail at your New Year’s resolutions (because that would truly defeat the purpose).  I am rather encouraging everyone to dream big, think outside the box and make those crazy goals because who knows?  If you shoot for the moon and miss, you might still land among the stars.  Happy New Year!

January 19, 2012 Every year during December and January, Hong Kong’s major radio and television stations hold their annual music award ceremonies.  For audiences all over, these award shows have become entertaining ways to review outstanding performers and their work.  For artistes however, these ceremonies have come to bring more mixed emotions. 

For those who are well established, these moments are often like icing on a cake; but for those who are still striving for broader recognition, these award results can bring about complicated feelings.  I can’t speak for everyone else, but for me, it’s times like this when I get a chance to remind myself of who I really want to be. 

Being an independent label singer trying to balance popular music with what I feel is inspiring work is often a lonely task.  With no clear guidelines as how to make it work, my colleagues and I often stress over how to balance artistic integrity and commercial success.  Hoping to gain wider exposure so as to share our messages, we know that we must first achieve a certain degree of popularity.  Challenging the norm has however always been an important part of what we hope to do.  Straddling this fine line and constantly taking risks, we often see mainstream media awards as something we very much appreciate but dare not aim for directly.

All that being said, the media really has been good to me.  With results this year that have made my team and fans proud, the road ahead seems promising.  Being rewarded for what we have worked so hard for is truly a blessing.  It is however also a responsibility; a responsibility to live up to the encouragement I have been given and be who I really want to be. And onward we go! -JWo

December 1, 2011For the first time since becoming a professional singer, I’m now acting in a stage play.  The play, a musical comedy, is challenging not just because of its demands on me as the male lead, but also because it’s been such a long time since I’ve done anything in the realm of theater.  

As I’ve realized, one major difference between working on a theater production and one on television is that expressions and reactions have to be noticeably exaggerated in order to effectively reach an audience.  TV: acting into a close-up on screen where every nuance of one’s face can be seen; versus theater: acting live in front of an audience that may only be able to see you from afar at times.

Now the reason I brought this topic up is not because I want to discuss the fine technicalities of acting (as I am no expert myself).  It is rather something my director told me during rehearsal.  He once said, “While this play is a comedy, we must still hold on to truth and sincerity in our performance”.  What he was saying is that despite the exaggerated (sometimes cartoonish), well-timed, deliberately staged nature of what we are approaching, genuine belief and sincerity in our delivery is what makes everything work.  As an actor, you have to be fully tangled up in the situation.  In other words, it’s only funny if you don’t seem like you know it is. 

And he was right.  Seeing a performer reach for the audience is pretty awkward, not to mention unconvincing.  As I’ve found, this theory applies quite widely across different disciplines too; be it in entertainment or business, concerts or boardrooms; there’s always an advantage to being sincerely engaged in what you are doing…  at least on the outside…

"Asian Ace" A Cappella Competition in Japan

In November 2011, I was invited by Tokyo’s top TV station TBS to appear on their TV Show "Asian Ace".  The theme for the show was A cappella and my job was to coordinate and train four group members for two songs within two weeks, handling everything from music production to choreography. The average age of my team was much younger than the other team, which I think was an advantage because the audience saw them as fresh and energetic. In the end, we managed to beat the Japanese team by by 3 points, and I am very honored to have been able to represent Hong Kong in this competition.
