Brickleberry, a strange kind of berry

First of all, can you introduce yourself as a musician ? 请你自我介绍 。

我们是来自北京的乐队,脆莓(brickleberry),大家因为热爱相聚一起做音乐,玩乐队。成立两年。主唱弹吉他,张赫林是贝斯,合成器是潘沛生,鼓手是暴暴。目前是这样的配置。

We are Brickleberry from Beijing, we love doing music together as a band. We’ve been together for two years. The singer is the guitar player, we Zhang Helin on bass, we have Pan Peisheng on keyboard, Bao Bao on drums. This is the way it is these days.

What do you think of the Beijing Underground music scene ? 你觉得北京地下音乐现在怎么样?

北京现在地下乐队更多了,现在做音乐更方便了,一台电脑加上简单的录音设备就可以玩自己的音乐,简单来说门槛更低了。是好事也是坏事,就像电影工业取消胶片改为数码设备拍摄的一次革命,使得更多人可以进入这个行业。但比起之前作品的质量参差不齐,加上又是个快节奏的时代,好音乐反而更少了,不止是地下摇滚乐的问题,也是整个音乐圈普遍要解决的问题。我们能做的就是更加专注更加积极。

The Beijing Underground has more bands than before, it is more convenient to make music in Beijing than in the past, the threshold to enter the scene is lower than it used to be, it is a good and and a bad thing. I compare that to the change from using film to having everything being digital in the movie industry, it made it easier for people to make films, but the quality of cinema has become lower than it used to be. Also we live in a time period where everything goes fast, there is less good music than before, it is not only the problem of underground music, it is also the problem of music in general, this problem has to be solved. What we do is just being more concentrated and positive.

What’s your favorite music to listen to ? 你最喜欢听什么音乐和乐队?

我们一般听的音乐都是在Dance-Punk / Indie Rock /DISCO 之间徘徊,有时候也会看心情,音乐就是给人情绪的,不局限于风格

We in general listen to Dance-Punk/Indie Rock/DISCO, but it depends on our feelings, music is a thing giving moods, id doesn’t matter to limit those moods with styles.

How long have you been doing music ? What was your first instrument and why did you start playing music ? 你做了音乐做了多长时间 ?你是怎么开始做音乐的?

大家好像都是从少年叛逆期就想做音乐了,那时候的年龄就是有一些想做的事和自己要成为什么样子的人阶段。少年心气

It seems like all of us wanted to do music from a very age. At a young age there are the things one wants to do and the steps to become the person one wishes to become. The mind of a young heart….

What are your other musical projects ? 你有别的乐队吗?你的其他音乐项目是什么?

鼓手暴暴还有一支乐队叫温莎森林,做的时间比较长,其他人工作也比较忙,用一些精力拿出来做脆莓。

Our drummer Baobao also has a band called Wensha Forest, the band has a long history, for others in the band work gets us pretty busy, we use our energy to create crisp berries.
