当代爵士三重奏 Christy Doran’s Sound Fountain 深圳演奏会
时间：2018.5.9 周三 20:30
“Sound Fountain”成立于2014年，是爱尔兰籍瑞士吉他演奏家Christy Doran先生与阿根廷贝斯手Franco Fontanarrosa的音乐友谊的延续，也包含了瑞士鼓手Lukas Mantel。该项目可以理解为Doran的一切的精华——正如他们的网站所诠释“包含了爵士，摇滚，民族，到前卫音乐的各种影响”，“这个三重奏以挑战标准吉他三重奏编制的能力之极限的方式，探索音乐疆土”。
早在70年代，Christy Doran先生就与瑞士打击乐手Fredy Studer、萨克斯手Urs Leimgruber 和 低音提琴手Bobby Burri组建了爵士/摇滚/融合乐队OM，乐队名称源自John Coltrane的一张专辑，著名音乐厂牌ECM和其子厂牌JAPO 都为他们出版过唱片。其中1978年出版于JAPO的专辑《OM With Dom Um Romao》最近被滚石选为“100张最佳爵士专辑” 。
虽然Doran先生认为Jimi Hendrix是对自己影响最大的音乐家，他自己却创办了瑞士琉森（Lucerne）大学爵士音乐系，并参与众多乐队和项目（他参与录制的专辑更是超过60张），所涵盖领域更是从他自己的乐队New Bag和Bunter Hund，到与法国吉他演奏家Noel Akchoté的合作，以及他作曲的“144 Strings for a Brocken Chord”20支吉他的合奏项目。与他合作过的享誉世界的音乐家包括Carla Bley，Albert Mangelsdorff，Edvard Vesala，Charlie Mariano，Iréne Schweizer，Pierre Favre，Sonny Sharrock，Tim Berne，Jim Black，Gunther Schuller，Airto Moreira等等。
如果Christy Doran 看起来跟他的年纪相仿的话，他在Gütersloh剧院2017年夏天“欧洲爵士传奇”系列演奏会中呈现的乐队Sound Fountain可能就会被误读，这位吉他演奏家不止看起来不像，演奏起来、听起来也根本不像68岁年纪的人。这个三重奏里的每一位音乐家都非常独立，但其演奏之间的互动却异常自然， 不置可否又时而浮动的音乐，作曲与即兴平衡的音乐，能量十足却又优雅从容的流淌，“声音喷泉”名副其实。

The music of SOUND FOUNTAIN is a mixture of diverse influences from jazz, rock and ethnic to new classical music and free improvised music. Taking advantage of the sound possibilities of the standard formation of guitar, bass and drums, the three musicians explore surprising musical landscapes. They use a method that has interested them for a long time: interpreting composed and improvised music as a unity.
SOUND FOUNTAIN comes with a vast range of experiences from various musical situations – each of the three musicians could readily perform a solo concert. However, they play music in this trio that benefits their individual potential of interaction and surprise.
The three personalities, who grew up in greatly different music environments, generate substantial magnetic attraction and together develop an unsuspected creative potential, which unloads in versatile musical information: haunting melodies, catchy grooves, spherical moods and abstract musical textures, but the intensity comes from each individual and the trio is more than the sum of the three individuals. An energetic SOUND FOUNTAIN!
