Sound out loud : Cross the unjust line

共通於那一跪一拜之間
凡人
2006.2.7

集合在這兩張CD的22首歌曲,是一群人試圖以各自的音樂,誠意地去紀錄及回應,在2005年12月中,在香港舉行的世界貿易組織(WTO)第六次部長級會議期間,街頭的種種燥動,媒體中的影像聲音,與及在我們的生活中、身心上,因而留下了的印記。

這個聲音群集並不是一個宣言,也不是一個宣傳教育計劃,更不是一個什麼組織要完成一些什麼使命。群集的異聲同途,只反映了一些平凡人,對身邊發生著的不義的反應,同時,亦是一些平凡人看到了對不義的反抗,因而被感動,被牽引。

這群人沒有共同的組織,沒有事前的計劃,由一人發起,幾人和應,一傳十,十傳百,有人交歌,有人幫錄音混音,有人捐錢,有人做文稿、翻譯、搞設計,有人想發行,有人想寫碟評 ……

這群人之中,有人曾在過去幾年都在留意WTO,但亦有人是只在幾個月前,甚至是幾個星期前,才知WTO是什麼;有人是農耕者,有人是打工者、家務勞動者、 消費者、學生;有人是因看了一些電影,有人是因為看了電視新聞;有人在場,有人不在場;有人聲援,有人絕食,有人拍錄像,有人寫文章;有人被驅趕,有人被 拘捕;有人被水砲濕身,有人吸了催淚氣,有人急救,有人越過了封鎖線;有人罵警察,有人同情警察;有人覺得自己是在幫人,也有人覺得是在為自己的生活而行 動 ……

到現在,大家一起做CD,可以說,大家若有什麼是共通的,豈不就是韓農們在那一跪一拜之間為我們展示的,也是大家其實都一直共同懷著的,對天地的崇敬!

與及,我們都作為生活於天地間的平凡人,願意付點血汗,為人間爭一口正氣!留一片淨土!

因而,就一起爽朗地唱幾句戰歌吧!

這一丁點的共通,既已一傳十,再而十傳百了,在你聽過以後,可有共通,成為百傳千的一份子?這群集的音樂,未完 ……

在一跪一拜之間
凡人
2006.2.7

我們這裡很多人,都在不經不覺間,在05年12月中的一個多星期裡,被一股無形的力量牽動了。

這股力量很奇怪,我們本來對它不太認識,它穿著跟我們很不一樣的衣服,說著很多種我們都陌生的語言,還會踏著奇怪的舞步。它走過我們的購物區,卻談論著海裡的魚,地上的瓜菜,河水與生命。我們旁觀著它,只因好奇。它來到我們的地方,我們卻是它的遊客,為它拍照。也出於陌生,我們警覺著危險的可能,與它保持距離。

後來,它知道我們有點怕,就刻意要讓我們見見它的和善笑容,我們就都一起笑了!我們開始斗膽問它:「為什麼呢?」

它就激動了,吐不出一句話,咬牙切齒起來,眼眶濕紅了一角,握拳像要一揮而起了,可它還是用最大的力氣壓著了。它卻突然爬在地上,一跪一拜地向前,在沉重的鼓音中,從我們身邊隆隆而過。

我們忽然就明白了!魚是我們的魚,瓜菜也是,還有棉花、黃豆、大米、……,最後是河水和生命。在它那一跪一拜之間,吟唱呼喚的天和地,也是我們一直看著的,同一片 …… 天和地!

我們眼前忽然就亮起了一幅美麗的圖畫,但,卻又慘見,有權勢,在撕、割、踐、噬,望清楚,那權勢原來也是我們熟悉的 ……

我們心痛了,就大聲呼喊起來。這時,我們發覺,我們說出了它種種的語言,我們又穿上了不一樣的衣服,跳起了奇怪的舞步,我們在一跪一拜之間,吟唱呼喚,成為了這兩片CD。

它,已遠去了?還是,我們都跟它飛翔而起,出發了!

Sound out loud : Cross the unjust line

Connected between the kneels and bows
by nobody
2006.2.7

Collected in these 2 CDs, are 22 songs by various people. These works of music are their sincere documentations and responses to the rumblings on the streets, the sounds and visions in the media and the marks left on their body and soul and their lives during the 6th Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organisation held at Hong Kong on December 2005.

This gathering of sounds is neither a manifesto nor a public educational project and certainly not somekind of mission that has to be accomplished by any organisation. These diverse sounds gathered on the same path, and shown the responses of ordinary people to the injustice happening around them. At the same time, it is also because that they were being touched and aroused when they see the resistance to injustice before their eyes.

These people do not belong to the same organisation, do not have any prior plan. It just started with one, and a few responded, then ones become tens, tens become hundreds, some offered their music, some helped with recording and mixing, some donated money, some worked with text, translations, designs, some worked on distribution, some wrote the reviews…….

Among these people, some have been concerned about WTO for the last few years, some only learned of the WTO during the last few months or even just weeks. Some are farm workers, some are wage workers, some are home workers, consumers, students. Some were moved because of the movies they watched, some because of the news they saw. Some were there in the scene, some weren’t. Some voiced their support, some went on hunger strike, some shot video, some wrote articles. Some were chased away, some were arrested. Some were drowned by the water cannon, some were choked by teargas, some did first-aid, some crossed the police cordon. Some were angry at the police, some sympathized with the police. Some thought they were helping the others, some thought they were acting for their own lives.

And now, we work on CD together. If there is anything that connects us, it must be the reverence towards heaven and earth, shown to us through the kneels and bows of the Korean farmers, which we have always been carrying in ourselves as ordinary people.

Also, being ordinary people living between heaven and earth, we are willing to offer our sweat and blood, to struggle for a breath of fresh and righteous air, and reclaim a piece of paradise on earth.

Therefore, let’s chant the battle songs together!

Dots were connected, from ones to tens and tens to hundreds. Now that you heard, are you connected and becomes one that will connect to the thousands? This gathering of music, is only beginning…….
