Trust your own gut instinct,

especially if you are making music.

I think that gut instinct is really important.

– Dave Bayley, Glass Animals

不 再 在 舞 台 上 扔 菠 蘿

I wish I knew not to throw pineapples off the stage because I used to do that, I have hurt a lot of people, I’ve broken fingers and I’ve hit someone on their face once and it’s really bad. I am not gonna do that anymore.

我希望我早知道不應該在舞台上扔菠蘿下去,因為我曾經那樣做,很多人受傷了,像我斷了手指,曾經打中一個人的臉,很糟糕。我不會再這樣做了。

學 會 如 何 在 巡 演 巴 士 上 睡 覺

I wish I knew how to sleep on a tour bus because I still can’t do it. But bring ear plugs, it’s all like shaking all the time, it’s impossible to fall asleep.

我希望我早知道如何在巡演巴士上睡覺,我仍然做不到。不過戴上耳塞,因為巴士會一直搖晃,根本不可能入睡。

怎 樣 有 技 巧 地 唱 歌

I wish I knew how to sing properly. When I started the band, I definitely didn’t know how to sing and like warm up my voice and stuff and I kept losing my voice. Sometimes, when I am on stage and I just have to be like I can’t sing, bye and cut the show short.

我希望我早知道要怎樣有技巧地唱歌。一開始,我根本不知道如何正確地唱歌或像是熱身和發聲這些技巧,然後我一直都在失聲。有時候,我在舞台上,我真的唱不了,只能縮短演出時間。

如 何 玩 忍 者

How to play Ninja. No.4, that will be no.4. It’s a really good game for being on tour. One, two, three, Ninja. and then you like take turns. Really fun game.

如何玩忍者。巡演時,這個遊戲真的很好。一,二,三,忍者。然後你要輪流,真的很有趣。

巡 演 餐 單

What to put on the Rider’s menu. Cereal, fruit, coffee, tea, not too much booze, that’s the main thing. Healthy things.

巡演要求餐單上放什麼。麥片,水果,咖啡,茶…不要太多酒精飲品,這是最主要的。就一些健康的東西。

如 何 與 人 合 作

How to collaborate with people because that’s a great way to learn about how to make music. Just to learn from other people and collaborate.

如何與人合作,因為這是學習製作音樂的好方法。向他人學習和合作。

相 信 自 己 的 直 覺

Trust your own gut instinct, especially if you are making music. I think that gut instinct is really important.

相信自己的直覺,尤其是在做音樂的時候。我認為直覺很重要。

享 受 現 場 表 演

How to enjoy playing live I think is very important. The first couple of the shows that we did, I was just trying to play everything like really perfectly and standing really still. Makes a terrible show. Have fun, have a tequila. Doesn’t matter if it’s all perfect or not.

如何享受現場表演非常重要。在我們最早的幾場演出中,我只是嘗試把所有事情做得完美,而且是筆直的站著。這樣演出很無趣。玩得開心,喝點龍舌蘭酒。表演完美與否無關緊要。

打 開 心 坎 地 寫 歌

How to be open when writing songs – I think it’s really important. The first couple of albums that we did were very like about other people. I didn’t wanna write about myself. I think it’s more important to write about yourself because you can get to something more personal, more sensitive.

打開心坎地寫歌──我認為這很重要。一開始,我不想寫自己的事,所以我們製作的頭幾張專輯都是關於別人的。但現在我認為,寫關於自己的事情很重要,因為這樣你發掘到更多個人和敏感的事物。

用 photoshop

How to use photoshop, so I can do all the artwork, that’s been a steep learning curve.

如何使用photoshop,這樣我就可以完成所有藝術品。這是一個艱難的學習過程。

避 開 我 們 的 貝 斯 手 兼 吉 他 手 Edmund

How to hide from our bassist-guitarist, Edmund, he’s in a crazy mood. Once he smashed a cucumber over my back and sometimes he does soundtrack just lying on his back.

如何避開我們的貝斯手兼吉他手Edmund,他處於一個瘋癲的狀態。有一次,他在我背上砸了一根黃瓜,有時他躺著做配樂。

在 舞 台 前 方 黏 一 條 線

How to draw a line at the front of the stage in neon tape so you don’t fall off the front, break your leg, like i did.

如何用霓虹膠帶在舞台的前方黏一條線,以免跌倒,摔斷腿,像我一樣。

不 需 要 高 檔 設 備

And finally you don’t need all the fancy equipment in the world. You can just use a computer. I made the first EP on like an old Hand-Me-Down computer that didn’t even work if it wasn’t plugged into the wall.

最後,您不需要用到這世界上所有的高檔設備。您可以就用一部電腦,我就是用一台舊電腦製作了第一張EP,那台電腦如果沒有插電是無法使用的。
