《鏡中鏡》

《鏡中鏡》 “Spiegel im Spiegel”  

 

姜濤常說「用作品說話」,說話背後也嘗試尋找答案,並記錄著成長。

Keung To always says “he will speak with his work”, on the back of which he tries to find his answers and documents his growth.  

 

來到九胎,他再次找上《Master Class》的作曲人Gareth Tong創作旋律,亦寫了篇千字文給填詞人小克:

With the 9th baby, he once again found the composer of “Master Class” Gareth T. to compose the melody, and also wrote a long letter to the lyricist, Siu Hak:   

 

「新歌仍想以自己的故事和經歷為背景,展現自己在成名後面對外界一切聲音時從抗拒逃避、急於反駁到反省領悟、最後從容面對的心路歷程,從中明白到人生最大的敵人從來不是別人,而是自己。當我們學會勇敢面對自己內心真正的恐懼、認識和接納自我,才能最終戰勝心魔,這也是走向內心強大的唯一途徑。」

“Again, I hope to create this new song based on my own story and experiences.  Through the song I want to express my internal transformation process on how to face external voices about me after I started to come to prominence: from rejection, avoidance and anxiousness to refute; to introspection and epiphany; and finally to calm acceptance. From within I understood my biggest enemy in life is never others, but my own self. When we learn to courageously face our greatest inner fears, realize and accept our true self, we get to ultimately defeat our demons. This is the only route to developing a resilient and righteous heart.”  

 

姜濤也特別提及,希望小克能層遞出「從抗拒逃避,到反抗反駁,到反省領悟」三種心理層面。

Keung To also specified that he hoped Siu Hak can deliver the 3 progressive psychological states: “from rejection and avoidance, to resistance and refutation, then to introspection and epiphany”.  

 

於是小克於兩段副歌分別用上「訴」和「吐」兩個關鍵字。從面向外界、近乎逃避式的「傾訴」,直至回看自己在IG發過的肥仔童年照,才悟到原來需要面對過去,並往心靈內尋找痛苦的根源及治癒的鑰匙,遂把「訴」進化成勇於面向自己的「吐」,把所有負面情緒如瀑布般吐出,直至把自己也浸沒,才不再懼怕洪濤,因為發現根本「我就是濤」。

Therefore, Siu Hak used the two keys words “speaking” (「訴」) and “splurting” (「吐」) in the two choruses.  From “speaking” about almost total avoidance towards external judgments, to having an epiphany until when he saw old pics of his chubby young self during a review of his past IG posts, Keung realized he needed to face his own past, search for the source of pain in his heart and retrieve the key of healing. Eventually, from “speaking” he transformed by collecting enough courage to face his own “splurting” or “gushing” (same word in Chinese), that is to let his negative emotions gush out like a waterfall, until he is fully drenched, then he won’t be afraid of the tsunami, as he discovered, actually, “I am To”. (Admin’s note: the Chinese word「濤」(“To”) which is Keung To’s name, has the meaning of “big waves” as well.)  

 

「鏡中自我」(Looking-glass self)是由美國社會學家Charles Cooley所提出的概念,他認為所有關係都是一面鏡,自我意識就是從別人如何看自己而建立。於是小克聯想到《鏡中鏡》這歌名,當兩塊鏡子對疊,鏡映把自我無限伸延,世界上所有人,孰敵孰友,原來都是「我」自己的化身。 “Looking-glass self” is a concept first introduced by American sociologist Charles Cooley.  He considered that all relationships are “mirrors” and one’s sense of self is a reflection of how other people perceive oneself. Then Siu Hak associated this with a song title《鏡中鏡》(which literally means “Mirror in Mirror”). When two mirrors overlap, the reflections of oneself can be extended infinitely, and all people in the world, be they friend or foe, turn out to be the incarnation of “myself”.  

 

《鏡中鏡》(spiegel im spiegel)也同時是愛沙尼亞作曲家Arvo Pärt於1978年寫下的名曲,以重複的三個鐘鳴式琴音貫切全曲。姜濤這首《鏡中鏡》結尾的十二個琴音正是借用自這樂曲。

“Spiegel im Spiegel” (the Chinese name is《鏡中鏡》) is a well-renowned music piece written by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt in 1978. The tonic triads in this piece are endlessly repeated with small variations as if reflected back and forth.  Keung To’s “Spiegel im Spiegel” ended with twelve notes which are referenced from this music piece.

不呼吸
多想消失
囤積的冤屈
誰攀高一級 再高一級
天天都追迫我 終於沾濕 汗毛

畀畀心 畀畀心 永不變的標誌
姜B 姜B 不想被稱得意
K-pop Canto-pop 這比較怎可以
不偏 不倚(走音)

幾多Like數先算應得
幾多恥笑迫我屈膝
幾多生死使我哭泣
幾多苦笑遮我抑鬱
便一伙共舞 盡做 大路
便生火獨舞 逐步 每步

以 一首歌曲 數百個字
賜我力量 用力訴
成名和寂寞 盡力訴
留言和辯論 落力訴(反攻)
台前和幕後 合力訴(反擊)
掃到那落葉落盡 尚在掃
繼續掃
要命數
潔白到
來生 無業報

看鏡裡似有線報(識穿)
再對抗依然徒勞(兜圈)
我看到心靈藏藍圖(拼圖)
緊急出口 已看到
如何難逃 如何難逃
再上社交平台疲勞
如何能逃 如何能逃
才回望十歲舊時肥仔
方知 我要折返童年時
追尋何時 欺凌何時
才尋回一條門匙

解開傷口 細意探視
領我頓悟 用力吐
懷疑和懦弱 盡力吐
靈魂和內臟 落力吐(分解)
童年和現在 合力吐(匯聚)
吐到那幻象幻滅 尚在吐
繼續吐
變瀑布
浸沒到 才知
根本 我是濤

誰 獨對鏡中空虛
誰 迷惑鏡映作祟
一鏡在前的 恐懼
一鏡後遺的 眼淚
雙鏡對疊 無限敵對 也是我自己
