Akeboshi

最近發現到一個叫Akeboshi 的音樂人,被可愛的貓喵彈琴cover吸引了,原來很紅,因為其作品《Wind》是《狐忍Naruto》的主題曲。

聽畢《Wind》,再聽【Yellow Moon】,不難發現Akeboshi 的民族音樂元素鮮明,以及其對節奏的處理是很到家的,再加上一把沉厚(佬味)的聲線,實在是個奇異的配搭。合以上三個元素組成的過癮曲目《Yellow Moon》是富有夢幻雄厚氣氛的典型日本動畫主題曲,偏偏我最喜愛這樣的氣氛,而且,精彩的是在鋼琴riff下,整體的氣氛是既悲亦壯的,當然多得 Akeboshi 的聲音帶給多愁善感的情緒,MV拍得好,尤像坐上一輛夢之火車。當然,這首作品毫無難度地再次成為《狐忍Naruto》的音樂。在悠揚的笛子下是另一首民 族感強烈的《One step behind the door》,出奇地亦是因為Akeboshi 聲音而添置了不經意的感覺與氣氛。

除了異國色彩外,在Hip-Hop節奏下的懶散《Peruna》中的鋼琴將層次豐富了;環迴鋼琴的《Hanabi》卻在其獨突的強弱音下表現得恰當的悲涼,或是Post-rock與House互混的《Deep End》的爽快,都是Akeboshi 帶給我的驚喜與刺激。

Akeboshi 是擁有獨突音樂觸感的音樂人,如果你喜歡一些佬味重的聲線,喜歡在不同音樂類型上亦有鋼琴聲在遞送愁感及美感的音樂的,大可以試試Akeboshi 。

官方網頁

Akeboshi (明星) is a male Japanese popular music singer. He is mostly known for the song Wind , used as the ending theme to the anime Naruto for the first twenty-five episodes.

Akeboshi was born in 1978 in Yokohama. He learned to play the piano when he was three years old. After that, he also learned to play the guitar. Akeboshi studied music in Liverpool. His time in England has influenced his music a lot.

Akeboshi’s songs are mainly sung in Japanese, but there are some notable songs that are sung in English, such as Night and day , ‘Money’, and Wind . Another remarkable thing about Akeboshi’s music is that he rarely uses the basic 4/4 time measure. Wind and ‘Kamisama no Shitauchi’ for example, are both written in 5/8

More recently the song Yellow Moon (again used in Naruto) has added another great piece to the artist’s collection

    我也是看Naruto之后找他的碟,很赞。 不过好像last.fm听的人很少,不知道为什么。我喜欢他的小提琴和木吉他。 配乐比较丰富吧 :-p
