王子衡 Wang Ziheng - 萬火歸一 We, The Fire Are One

"Imagine if we use the shooting method of Masao Adachi's 'A.K.A. Serial Killer' to paint shan shui, the soundtrack will be this album."

「想像將足立正生的《略稱 - 連續射殺魔》的運鏡,套用在一幅山水畫上,那這畫面的配樂,就是這張《萬火歸一》。

『即興噪音sax武士一刀流』,初見子衡的個人簡介上如此寫道。一個中國即興音樂中對多數有關注的人還算是陌生的名稱,王子衡於2017年與丁晨晨、若潭來台演出;比起我曾看過管樂器即興樂手現場,如朱文博的細膩雅緻、或者李增輝的黑暗瘋狂氣息,王子衡的演出,以及這張專輯,都有種竹林論劍的俠氣。

《萬火歸一》整張專輯皆在北京三元橋地下通道錄音,也由於地下通道的空間結構,這張專輯比較起多數的即興音樂作品,更像是一張氛圍音樂作品;由於這張在技法呈現上多是以長音為主,就好像王子衡要把空間吹破一般,那狹長的通道立刻就在腦海現形。

王子衡本人不將自己定義為一位自由爵士樂手,而是噪音、即興的樂手。之前看他在北京荒音祭幾段現場的影片,似乎在器樂與演出形式上有許多變化;可以預見這種在非正式演出場合的錄音、錄影,會隨著串流技術發展而一應而起,但也就是這樣,才能打破多數人對於即興音樂形式主義想像的藩籬。」

- 呂立揚 Li-Yang(破地獄 Scattered Purgatory)

"Some non-standard notes, some chaotic vocals after sudden silence, merged into the deep sound waves, with brief but touching melodies. Noise from void, silence between light and darkness, tension in space, about environment and spirit."

「這張《萬火歸一》,再結合他上一張錄音的名字《活火山》,和他的敏感,恣肆的演奏風格,似乎正在構成一派地火湧動的噪音景象。

但《萬火歸一》中並沒有集中噴發的塊狀能量,A面的《力之主-破》長達十九分鐘,開篇是恍惚的音效或者采樣,在你正努力探查這些的源頭時,顫抖的薩克斯出現,刺破了模糊的低頻,在新環境裏蔓延開來。一些非標準音,一些驟停後爆發的混沌人聲,一些不明來路的自然混響,最後融入了沉郁的聲音洪流,間或又浮現出短小但動人的旋律或者旋律感。翻面之後的三曲,有虛無中來去的噪音,也有晦明變化中出現的寧靜,有空間有張力,關乎環境也關乎精神。

唱片封套上是王子衡現場演奏的身影,這大約來自於他所發起的系列環境即興演出荒音祭的某次紀錄,但更像是一種翻轉的鏡像,模糊,交融,天我和一。」

Wang Ziheng 王子衡

Born in Dagang oilfield and now lives in Beijing, Wang Ziheng is one active free improve/noise/psychedelic musicians in the new generation of Beijing's underground music scene. He is also the initiator of non-livehouse series concert “Nowhere Festival 荒音祭”.
Deeply influenced by Kaoru Abe and John Coltrane, his commonly used instruments are tenor saxophone, human voice and noise. His solo performance is bold and full of passion. The profound understanding to avant-garde jazz and free improvisation is beyond his peers, empowering him with more possibilities.
Exchanging energy in the tranquil and sudden outbursts of the mad sound force field. His performance of improved noise style reminds people of Dionysus, full of euphoria and meanwhile sentimental. With great originality and creativity, his style is not restricted within in free improve or noise, even drone or rock could be adopted by him and enriched his music. Delusion through saxophone to a place where the language can't reach it.

In 2008, founded psychedelic noise band "LSDER" as lead singer / sax player.
In October 2014, live soundtrack performance with Li Jianhong, Wei Wei, Li Qing for artist Cheng Ran in Palais de Tokyo, Paris.
In 2015, joined Li Jianhong's "Vagus Nerve" as sax player, and founded "Save the Death", an unlimited-member noise project.
In April 2017, toured in Taiwan with 若潭 ruò tán, Ding Chenchen, collaborated with 破地獄 Scattered Purgatory.
In the same year, started the series of “Nowhere Festival 荒音祭” noise festival / concert.
In November 2017, organized and participated in "山火集" concert in Beijing with 若潭 ruò tán, 破地獄 Scattered Purgatory, IZ and Li Jianhong. And the first demo "活火山 Active Volcano" was released by WV Sorcerer Productions.
