電影 快樂頌Copying Beethoven

最近在看 變局創意學:李欣頻的末日創意+未來規劃

在 “第5個關鍵字:隨時放下→歸零重來” 的章節中

提到了電影 “快樂頌 (Copying Beethoven)

電影上映的時候 還想說看起來不錯 想去看

後來就漸漸忘了這部片的存在

直到再在書中看到 並把它租回家觀賞

劇中 Beethoven 與 Anna 的幾度對話非常有啓發性

在這轉謄分享給大家~ (No copyright infringement intended. I do not own anything.

*打星星處是我的翻譯

Beethoven:

the vibrations in the air

音樂是空氣的共鳴

are the breath of god

是上帝的氣息

speaking to man’s soul

是祂與人類心靈對話的窗口

music is the language of god

音樂是上帝的語言

we musicians are close to god as man can be

我們音樂家比世人接近上帝

*我們音樂家非常接近上帝

we hear his voice

我們聽得到祂的聲音

we read his lips

我們讀得到祂的唇語

we give birth to the children of god who sings his praise

歌頌上帝的子民得以擁抱生命

that’s what musicians are

這就是音樂家的天賦

and if we are not that

要是我們無法達成使命

we are nothing

我們就ㄧ無是處

第二段想分享的是 Anna 在作曲時遇到困惑

而Beethoven 對她說的話

Beethoven: What?

貝多芬:怎樣?

*貝多芬:怎麼了? (這時 Beethoven 的詢問是很溫柔的)

Anna: I just don’t understand it Maestro, where does the movement end?

安娜:我弄不懂這拍子哪裡結束

*安娜:Maestro (老師/大師) 我不明白樂章(要)在哪裡結束?

Beethoven: It doesn’t end, it flows.

貝多芬:它沒有結束 是一直在流動

you have to stop thinking in terms of beginning and ending

妳得拋掉頭尾的觀念

[omit] …this is a living thing

音樂是活的

like clouds taking shape or tides shifting

像雲的形狀或浪的起伏

Anna: On music how does it work?

安娜:但如何運用在音樂上呢?

Beethoven: It doesn’t work, it grows

貝多芬:不是運用而是讓音樂成長

you see the first movement becomes the second

妳看第一和第二樂章的轉折處

*妳看 第一樂章銳變為第二樂章

as each idea dies a new one is born

宛如誕生出新樂章

*一個想法的死亡是一個新想法的誕生

see in your work you are obsessed with structure

妳的作品太注重結構

or choosing the correct form

專注於精準的形式

you have to listen to the voice speaking inside of you

妳得傾聽自己內心的聲音

I didn’t even really hear it myself until I went deaf

我甚至等到聾了才聽到

not that i want you to go deaf my dear

我現在要妳當作自己聾了

*當然我不是希望妳成為聾子

Anna: you are telling me that I must find the silence in myself so I can hear the music

安娜:您要我找到自己內心的寂靜 這樣才能聽到音樂嗎?

Beethoven: Yes yes yes silence is the key

貝多芬:沒錯 寂靜是關鍵

the silence between the notes

一種音符間的寂靜

when the silence envelopes you

當你感到四周的寂靜時

then your soul can sing

妳的心靈就會開始高歌

很棒的電影

如果想看 百事達就租的到~
