#1 編譯 Compile

Echo 休息就要滿三年了,這些日子裡,除了和數位科技有關的計畫外,我也提醒自己不要忘了音樂人的本份,也就是創作。

2017 年起我陸續發佈了五首歌曲,這些歌從詞曲編曲、錄音混音,全部都是自己一個人在家完成,之所以不假他人之手,只是單純希望找到過去和自己對話的感覺。我稱它們是 Homework 家庭作業,也的確都是完成於自家頂樓,那個巴士底之日的書寫對象。

從十二月起,我要再一次跨出這小小的富麗洞穴,正式發行一系列個人的音樂作品。第一首是對自己有特別意義的〈19 39〉,數位平台之外,還有少量的七吋黑膠。

除了音樂,我也想請大家來玩一個遊戲,所有藏在這些作品裡的線索,最後會組成找到彩蛋的鑰匙。

這個解謎遊戲有一條主線,也就是要找到五個鑰匙片段,這五個鑰匙片段集合起來,會組成一把完整的鑰匙,也就是我的公鑰(什麼是公鑰?請看工科柏蒼 – 如何利用密碼學保守秘密)。拿到鑰匙之後便有機會拿到彩蛋,也就是這個遊戲的最大獎。

這個解謎遊戲的支線,就是每一個鑰匙片段伴隨的小關卡,這些小關卡若解開,可以得到一些訊息或是好康,但若沒有解開,不會影響遊戲的進行。

開始這個遊戲,請透過下方 link 連結 Facebook 帳號,完成後將可得到遊戲的下一步提示。

我會在 12/1 隨機抽出十位完成上面任務的朋友,贈送一張〈19 39〉的簽名七吋黑膠。

在新世界,一切都會實現。歡迎來我的綠洲,歡迎來聽我的音樂。

區塊鏈如何幫助音樂人

區塊鏈是比特幣帶給世界最大的貢獻,經過近十年來的發展,區塊鏈已經有了許多的變形和延伸應用,目前於金融、醫療、產權、身份證明、物聯網⋯⋯等眾多領域,都已經有實際運行的案例,音樂產業當然也有,但獲得的關注相對較低。雖然我不是電腦科學的專家,仍希望就所學有限的知識和理解,與大家分享我對這項技術在音樂產業應用的想法,和要如何讓業界所有參與者——特別是「音樂人」——受益。Read More

謎語

樂團休息之後,我陸陸續續寫了一些歌,但直到去年離開 iNDIEVOX,才終於有機會將它們好好整理。

作品的存量一直都在,並緩慢地增加。適合 Echo 的歌我都留著,等待樂團準備好重新出發的那一天,和團員一同做成回聲的音樂。而有些比較私人的,我便自己開始製作,覺得完整了就丟出來,沒有想太多,就和以前一樣。

過去 Echo 的作品,幾乎都是樂團共同編曲,因此當全部要自己來的時候,的確必須跨越一些心理障礙。寫歌和唱歌之外,我實際會演奏的就只有吉他,編寫其他器樂得花上比別人更多的時間;一個人做音樂有時也難免感到寂寞,但用自己的方式做出了腦海中想像的,剩下的,就讓埋下的謎語被找出答案。

音樂不就是這麼一回事。

4 Simple Steps for Distribution Merchants to Kickstart their Online Adventure

What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

 

Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

Where can I get some?

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
