阿比盖尔·沃什伯恩(Abigail Washburn)名言

I'm no ethnomusicologist. There is a connection between the five-note scale used both in traditional Chinese music and the blues, but I don't really understand it. All I know is, whenever I play with Chinese musicians, we seem to belong to the same musical gene pool.

我不是民族音乐学家。中国传统音乐中使用的五音音阶和蓝调之间有某种联系,但我不太明白。我只知道,每当我和中国音乐家一起演奏时,我们似乎属于同一个音乐基因库。

阿比盖尔·沃什伯恩

China was the first time I truly felt like an outsider. I fell in love with the process of trying to become intimate with the culture.

中国是我第一次真正感觉自己是个局外人。我爱上了试图与文化亲密的过程。

阿比盖尔·沃什伯恩

I had no intention of becoming a performer, and yet under miraculous circumstances I was brought into the music industry fold. If divine powers hadn't intervened, I'd still be living in China working in some area of Sino-American comparative law.

我无意成为一名表演者,但在奇迹般的情况下,我被带入了音乐行业。如果没有神权的介入,我仍然会生活在中国,从事中美比较法的一些领域。

阿比盖尔·沃什伯恩

I would still describe China as a vast, invigorating puzzle that will never make sense to my western upbringing.

我仍然会把中国描述成一个巨大的、令人振奋的谜团,对我在西方的成长环境来说永远没有意义。

阿比盖尔·沃什伯恩

In some ways, my most comfortable feeling has been that of being an outsider coming in, but over the years I've tired of that and I'm ready to feel at home. That's what music gives me: a feeling of absolute home.

在某些方面,我最舒服的感觉是作为一个局外人进来,但这些年来我已经厌倦了,我已经准备好有宾至如归的感觉。这就是音乐给我的:一种绝对的家的感觉。

阿比盖尔·沃什伯恩

I do see music as complete refuge. It's a universal home, complete common ground between everyone; it comes from a place that has no nation and no boundaries around it.

我确实认为音乐是完全的避难所。这是一个普遍的家,每个人之间的共同点;它来自一个没有国家和边界的地方。

阿比盖尔·沃什伯恩

I've moved around so much my whole life, and I've gotten so used to being the Other in situations - the foreigner, the outsider. The first time I've ever felt like there was no separation between me and the other elements was in music.

我一辈子都在四处走动,我已经习惯了在这种情况下成为另一个人——外国人,局外人。我第一次感觉到我和其他元素之间没有分离是在音乐中。

阿比盖尔·沃什伯恩

One of my favorite albums in the world is Bruce Springsteen's 'Nebraska.' Each song has this very distinct character who has something profound to say.

布鲁斯·斯普林斯汀的《内布拉斯加州》是我在世界上最喜欢的专辑之一,每首歌都有这样一个非常独特的人物,他有深刻的见解。
