BE TAKEN AT BED TIME
睡前一帖

睡前,大概是一日中最私人,最秘密,最需要撫慰的時刻。隨著年歲漸長,一夜長眠成為無數埋首奮鬥的都市人,最奢侈的願望。一整天受困於壓力、煩憂中,你有沒有想過,在睡前留下半刻和「自我」獨處、對話的時間?今期Chessman Post為你獻上治癒心神的一帖溫柔 ——《睡前服‧喜愛夢遊》企劃。

《睡前服‧喜愛夢遊》是小肥於2017年進行的全新音樂企劃。邀請港澳兩地不同的音樂人參與歌曲製作,由3月至12月每月推出一首新歌,並於每月最後一個星期四舉行現場直播活動。最後,十首新曲將會集結成小肥的最新專輯,並於來年2月,小肥出道十週年之際,於個人演唱會中與大家一一細訴。

有別於一般線上音樂直播,每一期睡前服音樂現場均圍繞一個特定主題,配合甚有新意的選曲,小肥時而感性,時而俏皮的「故事」時間,仿佛令人回到過去由父母講述睡前故事的時光,又像是回到中學時期與同窗好友合宿的回憶裏。

「睡前服最核心的理念是溫柔。」企劃總監康家俊如是說。「這是每個人都擁有的東西。無論是給予自身的溫柔,奉予他人的溫柔,它們一直存在,然而卻容易被我們忘記。所以我們希望在一天中最令人感到脆弱,需要慰藉的時刻,透過音樂,透過小肥的歌聲,帶領大家找回那些失落已久的溫柔。」

《睡前服‧喜愛夢遊》一改流行歌的絢麗包裝,簡單的配樂,富深意的歌詞,小肥厚實溫暖的歌聲,一字一句一音,以質樸無華的音樂為每一個共同奮鬥於亂世的你,帶來深夜中的一絲療癒。細心傾聽,在以音樂相互交流的瞬間中,也許不止是你我,小肥也捨去了鎂光燈下的武裝,同樣以最真實的一面,一同享受這臨睡前得來不易的愉悅。

《睡前服‧喜愛夢遊》的每一首作品,或許不是暢銷流行榜上的常勝軍,也不是狂熱歡樂時的首選曲,卻會成為睡前最觸動心弦的紓緩之作。其實是我們都忘記了,音樂,本來就應是治療心靈的最佳良藥。

祝,每一個你,良夜好夢。

The time before you sleep should probably be the most private, sensitive and comfort-seeking moment to oneself. Having a good quality sleep is not that easy any more when you grow older and older, busy working days and nights under great pressure. Have you ever stop and consider to leave the time before you sleep to talk to yourself, to find peace in your mind? In this issue of Chessman Post, we will present a little tenderness to you in the form of “Siu Fay's Bedtime Stories”.

“Siu Fay's Bedtime Stories” is the ongoing new music project for Terence Siu Fay in 2017. Composers, lyricists and musicians from both Hong Kong and Macau have been invited to participate in music creation for the project. A new song would be released every month from March to December and a live mini-concert which would be livestreamed online would be held on the last Thursday of every month to perform that new song. All these 10 songs would then be collected as the new album for Siu Fay at the end of these year. Also, the songs would be performed in Siu Fay’s 10 years anniversary concert which would be held in February next year.

Different from other music livestream online done before, every episode of“Siu Fay's Bedtime Stories” would be about one specific topic and style which would go along with the new song. Sometime the performance by Siu Fay would be more sensitive, while the other time it might be more playful. Audiences would be like being taken back to the good old time when they enjoy the bedtime stories told by their parents, or to the sweet memories that all secondary school friends go to a camp together.

“The project is all about tenderness.” said BFSH, the producer for “Siu Fay's Bedtime Stories”. “Tenderness is what everyone possess. No matter if it is the tenderness for yourself or for others, it always exists but it is also the thing that we would forget easily. That’s why we hope that people could remember about the long-forgotten tenderness via the performance by Siu Fay in the moment when people are most vulnerable mentally and looking for comfort.”

There is nothing fancy or exaggerated about “Siu Fay's Bedtime Stories”. But the simple melody, the meaningful lyric and the thick and warm voice of Siu Fay combine in harmony in the mid-night to bring you the comfort you long looking for. During this process, might be it is not just the audiences, but Siu Fay could also have the chance to ease the pressure from reality for a while, showing his true self and enjoy the moment.

Might be not every songs from “Siu Fay's Bedtime Stories” would be the number 1 song in the hit music chart or the top pick when people looking for some music for party time. But they would certainly be the most touching and comforting piece you could enjoy just before you sleep. It is always true that music is the best treatment for our heart and soul.

Wish every one of you could have a good dream tonight.
