噪反有理!《Sound of Noise噪反城市》2010

A delightful comic cocktail of modern city symphony, police procedural and love story.〈Variety,2010〉


原本是一個公寓與六個鼓手朋友《music for one apartment and six drummers》的10分鐘短片,最後發展為一劇情長片。就劇本情節而論真的是看過忘過,稱不上亮眼之作,但就像Variety雜誌評論此片宛如雞尾酒一般,只需享受即可毋須太過嚴肅。

找齊六個樂手的場景與過程,頗有周星馳《功夫足球》找齊一群不被社會體制接納邊緣者的過程,表面魯蛇下卻是不折不扣有著硬底子的反叛樂手。

電影中使用23,000個聲音檔案
在DVD特別收錄裡提到如何發展這些聲音,幕後製作甚有比電影更有趣之感。〈Doctor, Doctor, Gimme Gas( In My Ass)〉樂曲裡,提到了他們真的闖入醫院,加上參考樂曲Branded和捷克樂團"Monkey Business"偏冷調的金屬音樂感,2007年下半年與法國foley藝術家Nicolas Becker合作,提升整個聲響的質感與美學。

她們提到尋找聲音的過程不完全只是尋找聲音,而同時也是尋找潛藏的音樂(We were not only looking for sounds but also potential music.)

片中共4個樂章,在每個段落開始演奏前,也有如古典音樂會開始前的調音儀式,用意就在於讓觀眾瞭解什麼物件發出怎樣的聲響(To show people how the objects sound like, and you can orient yourself as we play.)

「人體」這個巨大樂器發聲的各種可能
醫院樂章裡─Doctor, Doctor, Gimme Gas(In My Ass),他們找來了一位body percussionist專家Finn去發展並探索人體聲音的可能性(sounds possibilities of a human body),試了各種醫療器材的聲響組合後,無意中發現的手術房病床升降按鈕,成了貫串此樂章的驚喜。

Between drummers, synchronized as a band, in an early cut we focused on making the playing credible. But in the end we really tried to get as much communication as we could.

比較短片《Music for one apartment and six drummers》與長片《Sound of Noise噪反城市》,從公寓一隅的發聲場域,擴充為整個城市的發聲遊樂園,不僅格局變大有較完整的敘事結構,同時也能有較多篇幅介紹鮮明的六個樂手角色。

Youtube上可以找到Six Drummers的其他演出,例如同樣都是大樓的剪綵活動,聲光與空間動線上只要加入了少許的設計,也可以很不一樣。不妨將Six Drummers的演出當成拓展聆聽認知的一種娛樂吧!
