周金亮与林文荪的《听梦飞翔》音乐分享会

周金亮与林文荪的《听梦飞翔》音乐分享会

小时候,有个很熟悉的名字–周金亮。在90年代,cafe不多,其中是海螺民歌餐厅。而喜欢泡在海螺,听听吉他演奏的自创歌曲的朋友,相信都很熟悉周金亮这位音乐人的名字。

上个月,看见了一位朋友,Jasond在面书分享一个音乐分享会–周金亮与林文荪的《听梦飞翔》,就在马六甲沂水阁沉香书艺廊。 刚好那一天得空,便出席了。

当到了沂水阁,看见了Jasond和几位朋友在大厅聊天,其中一位就是周金亮前辈。当时没认出,因为印象中他是长发披肩的,象rocker一样。直到音乐会开始了,才认出他。这时,他已经是梳理整齐的短发,满头银发,经历了多少岁月,人也爽朗成熟了。

开场,他独自一人,和大家近距离的聊天,分享自己的经历和音乐心得,再用歌曲自弹自唱和大家以音乐对话。唱了一些老歌如罗大佑的《东方之珠》,John Denver的《Today》,大家也朗朗的跟着哼,很是享受。

到了中场,周前辈介绍另外一位歌手–林文荪。对这个名字,这位年轻的女生,还是比较陌生。但从她从观众席走了出来,再清唱一段民族歌谣《青藏高原》,大家才被她的嗓子给震撼了。

她接着唱了大家都会,也跟着哼唱的《我是一只小小鸟》,周前辈在傍伴弹。然后唱了由傅承得前辈的诗,周前辈作曲的《一颗种籽》,一首意义非凡的歌曲,让我们要爱惜自己的母语,也要记得曾经为华教奋斗人士的精神,明白前人种树后人乘凉,所以更要珍惜华教和将华文发扬光大。

重头戏当然是周前辈创作的林文荪首张EP《农夫》。林文荪遇到了伯乐,EP里边的歌曲都是周前辈为林文荪的音色和唱风所量身定作的。当晚他们呈献了EP里边的歌曲,包括主打歌《农夫》,曲风有点古典很是独特。

唱到了尾声,大家都很享受怀念的歌曲,和林文荪的歌声和他们来了的新创作。听到了这么好听的EP专辑,当然也支持了!听听这支在适耕庄由导演Dick Chua(一位很欣赏的大马导演)拍摄的《农夫》MV:

Petaling Street ‘shutter therapy’ with Olympus OM-D E-M1 and 45mm (90mm equiv) lens

Street photography at Petaling Street with Olympus OM-D E-M1 and 45mm (90mm equiv) lens

It was three years then when I had a street photography at Pudu Street for the first time with Robin Wong and friends. Robin is a passionate street photographer and his works have always inspired me.

Early this month on the eve of Hari Raya, Fred made an arrangement with Robin for another street photography session at Petaling Street which he so-called ‘shutter therapy’. Fred, Kenn Wai, Brendon and I was so excited for the gathering and outing.

We met up for yum cha a day before, and Robin who is working with Olympus Malaysia, introduced to us an amazing mirrorless micro four thirds digital camera, the Olympus OM-D E-M1. I was fascinated with its light speed touch-focus-shoot feature, making it a great travelling or photojournalist’s companion. Robin said he would let me play with it on the next day’s session.

Robin who does street photography almost every week planned the outing so well. We started early morning with a yummy breakfast – Hon Kee famous pork intestine porridge and Chee Cheong Fun at Petaling Street. It was a great start for the day. Less crowded in the morning compared to the night especially on the eve of Hari Raya when most people had balik kampung for holiday.

Robin then passed the E-M1 to me. While having my usual Canon 5D Mark II hanging on left shoulder, now I had an Olympus system on the other shoulder. I borrowed the prime 45mm (90mm equiv) lens to use on the E-M1 as I had a ultra-wide angle lens on the Canon system.

Having two different systems on a shooting was challenging. It was like learning to write with both hands. However, the E-M1 didn’t give me much of a problem. Instead it gave much a quicker way to shoot without looking at the viewfinder. Simply looked at the tilt screen, touched the point where I wished to focus and it snapped automatically.

We walked around Petaling Street. From stalls to market, to Chinese temple and Indian temple. I was using E-M1 system more than my own camera. Probably it’s lighter and allowed to quick touch-and-shoot.

Most of the shots in this post were out-of-camera color balance with minor adjustment of brightness, contrast and saturation. The image quality was impressive! I think in street photography or for traveling, the E-M1 is a great companion for the journey.

We spent 1-2 hours exploring Petaling Street and the surrounding area including back alleys and ended the session with coffee session at Lucy In The Sky Cafe. After the session, we had a Japanese lunch at Fahrenheit 88 and we spoke to Robin why not have a sharing talk in Melaka at our studio. Without hesitation, he agreed to come to Melaka.

Many thanks to Robin for taking us around for the street photography session and lending me the Olympus OM-D E-M1. It is a great mirrorless micro four thirds system with lots of awesome functions including its fast touch-and-shoot, live time feature which Robin showed me the day before, allowing real-time result viewing for long exposure shooting, with good image quality! It might be worth while to use it in wedding photography.

We are looking forward to have Robin here in Melaka for a sharing session in street photography or ‘shutter therapy’ soon. Stay tuned for more information. 🙂

Sharing some shots taken during the session with the Olympus O-MD E-M1 with the 45mm lens. May all bEE happy.
