Sennheiser China and Night at Ram present a 4- part interview/performance series: “The Art of Music”.



Shanghai is an ever-expanding melting pot of burgeoning national and international culture and perhaps China’s premier crossroads of musical talent. Many styles and disciplines old and new merge and transform in the many small clubs and larger venues offering listeners lucky enough to happen by to share in their varied world of tones, rhythm and reveries. In this new series we would like to focus on 4 exceptional musical artists living in or visiting this vast hustling metropolis, those who have chosen the life of the creative performing musician. We invite you join us as we delve deep into their background, culture, inspirations and life philosophy as we aim to discover and share something about the language and art of music when it exceeds the physical act of performance on its metaphysical transformation through another dimension into a reality where people go to transcend the norms of everyday life and connect with the universe in the dream world that is music.



US musician/producer Tom Lee Pettersen will spend an hour with each guest introducing the artists and their music, engaging them in conversation and inviting them to share their music with the audience.



The first session will begin on Saturday June 22nd with a musician who stands at the very beginning of his career: A Bu is an extremely talented musical prodigy who will turn 14 this July. His short biography began like many gifted children with classical piano lessons at age 4, but his studies took a turn of a different sort in 2009 when he was introduced to Jazz piano by Hongwei Kong (Golden Buddha) at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing where he also learned guitar, bass, saxophone and percussion. Since 2011 A Bu has successfully stepped out of the piano rehearsal room into the Jazz clubs to learn more techniques in improvisation and gain other precious experience interacting with international jazz musicians of many styles.



In 2012 A Bu recorded his 1st studio album with his A Bu Jazz Trio under the auspices of producers Golden Buddha and Marc Vincent (President of Sennheiser China) with Grammy Award winning Sound Engineer Jakob Haendel from Germany. Among the songs performed is the classic Jazz work Giant Steps from John Coltrane which A Bu masters with an astonishing maturity beyond his young years.



Where does this musical insight come from in such a young person, and how did this type of music first developed by black Americans a hundred years ago capture the imagination of a young Chinese boy?



About the artist



A Bu, was born in Beijing in 1999. At the age of 4 he began his piano lessons with Professor Shigu Zhang from Central Conservatory of Music, who is currently residing in America. During his studies with Professor Zhang, A Bu participated many local piano competitions and received many rewards.

When A Bu was 9 years old, he continued his piano studies at the Central Conservatory of Music with Professor Zhiwei Zhang. Concurrently at the conservatory he began his jazz piano lessons with Professor Hongwei Kong, a famous jazz musician in China.

森海塞尔中国与上海外滩美术馆“艺术夜生活”联合呈现四场对谈和表演系列活动:“音乐的艺术”。

对于生机勃勃的民族文化与国际文化而言,上海是一个不断扩展的大熔炉,也或许是中国首个展现音乐天赋的十字路口。无论是旧与新的风尚与教条,都在一些小的社团或相对大的地方兴起与转型,让听者能够足够幸运的分享到各种充满不同音调、节奏和幻想的世界。在这新构想的系列中,我们将着重于四位特殊的音乐艺术家本身,他们或生活或逗留在奔忙的大都市里,我们深入他们的背景、文化、灵感与生活哲学。当这些我们意图去发现并与大家分享的音乐的艺术和语言超越了表演本身的物理性能而进行一个形而上的转换从而达到另一个维度,大家会进入另一个现实,异于日常生活,而如在梦境世界与宇宙连接。

美国的音乐人/制作人汤姆·李·彼得森(Tom Lee Pettersen)将会花一小时的时间来介绍艺术家及他们的音乐,与之进行对谈并邀请他们与观众分享他们的音乐。

第一场活动将于6月22日(星期六)举行,我们将见到这位刚刚开始其职涯的音乐人:阿布是一个极具天赋的音乐神童,今年7月他就年满14岁了。他的短幅简历的开端犹如绝大多数孩子一样,四岁开始接受古典钢琴的训练,但2009年是一个转折,他被孔宏伟(金佛)介绍去北京中央音乐学院,在那儿他学习了吉他、贝斯、萨克斯风和打击乐。自从2011年,阿布成功地从钢琴排练室解放出来而进入爵士俱乐部学习更多即兴创作的技术并从和风格各异的国际爵士音乐人们互动中获得更多宝贵经验。

2012年,阿布与“阿布爵士三重奏”与来自德国的格莱美获奖者录音师贾克布·海德在制作人金色佛与森海塞尔中国总裁马克·文森的支持下录制了其第一张录音室专辑。他演绎的来自约翰·科川的古典爵士作品《巨人步伐》比起阿布早些年的作品显现了惊人的成熟度。

这个年轻人对于音乐的洞悉力从何而来?这种美国黑人在一百年前首先发展出来的音乐类型如何抓住了一个中国年轻男孩的想象?

关于音乐人

阿布 (戴梁)

阿布出生于1999年,四岁开始师从美籍钢琴教育家张式谷教授学习古典钢琴。2009年考入中央音乐学院附小,开始更系统的学习古典钢琴。2012年6月,因成绩优异,被中央音乐学院附小保送至中央音乐学院附中继续深造。

阿布虽自幼接受的是专业的古典钢琴训练,但是同时也接触了多元化的现代音乐并对Jazz音乐、即兴演奏和拉丁音乐产生了浓厚的兴趣。利用课余时间跟随中国著名爵士音乐家、中国音乐学院的孔宏伟(金佛)老师开始系统的学习爵士、拉丁、即兴演奏、作曲以及更广泛的乐理知识。
