高質音檔 vs 實體唱片

上次提到高音質檔案能否在不久的將來取代實體唱片? 大家可能心裏有數,但各位下結論之前,能否分清楚,到底是數位音檔還是高音質音檔有機會取代實體唱片?
再者,高音質檔案現在一般是 24/96(當然由CD的 16/44.1 升頻至 24/96 不是真正的high resolution高清錄音), 因此同時要注意的是實體唱片的定義,如果是指CD,compact disc,收錄的音檔是壓縮至 44.1,當然不會比 96 原音檔音質為高!可能實體唱片要 " 轉型 " 為沒有音檔壓縮的載體——例如黑膠唱片。而且,唱片的物料也直接會影響音效的!玩過黑膠唱片的朋友一定會會心微笑!再好再方便的數位音檔,即使是如何高音質、不失真,也絕不能完全取代實體黑膠唱片的。不過,假設你只是需要方便地在電腦旁的speakers擴音喇叭仔一邊工作一邊播點音樂, 16 位原還是 24 位原的音質應該沒有所謂吧?

Music, Movie, Musicals and Me

Music and theatre have had a close relationship. Theatre can associate with movie or musical theatre (musicals) and I love both of them. I sing theme songs in some Asian movies, such as“When I Dream” (theme from “Dragon Squad”). It easily recalls people not only from scenes of the movie, but also from memory. I love theme music from movies as well as songs from Musicals, especially Broadway. I remember I have fallen in love with Broadway since I was 12. Musical films characteristically contain elements reminiscent of theatre; performers often sing and dance as if there is a live audience watching. Some musical films were adapted for the stage after their great success, such as “The Wizard of Oz” and“Fame”, while successful musicals also definitely received movie adaptations, i.e. stage-to-film adaptations, such as“Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Evita”. We can share our moments after all these years by passing through “Over the Rainbow”, “Out Here On My Own”, “I Don’t Know How To Love Him”, “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”, “You Must Love Me” ……

“Moon River” (theme from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”) has to be selected in my new album "Theatre" although it has been covered by hundreds of artists all over the world. I sing it each time, it seems like a live performance accompanied by the pianist just in front of the audience.

“The Way We Were” (theme from “The Way We Were”) must be selected because it was the song of one of my favorite singers that influences me most, Barbra Streisand, and I won the singing contest with it!

“For All We Know” (theme from “Lovers and OtherStrangers”) was selected, of course, in tribute to my forever idol, the Carpenters.

WORDS from Astor :

I hope all of you would like the presentation of my albums.
