Music as Life
  Yan Haunters, a Belgian working as a sound engineer in China. He said that music was his life……

I saw you sitting under the bridge
I saw you sitting at the canal
I saw your mama and your daddy crying
I discovered your brother hard working

Yan Haunters: Since I was a little kid, I was sung. Not only songs that existed. I just made a mop. I went to bed and I sang about the things around me, about things that happened in the day. Actually so loud and so long that my mother would come and knock on my door, open my door and say:"ok, this is enough. Just stop now. We have to sleep!"

Yan Haunters has a crazy passion for music. He has been trying to write some simple songs since he was 12. Then, at the age round 15, he attended bands of different styles. After graduation from the university, he felt that he needed to know more about music and it's technical aspect and went to the Music College at Berkeley in the United States.

Yan Haunters : To go to the U.S. is not so easy. It's very expensive, takes a lot of energy. I spent all my personal money, but I still didn't have enough money. So I went hunting for scholarships and people who believed in what I did. And I got the financial support after two years. And in the U.S., I was plunged into everything which was music and music technology. So my whole life there for 4 years. While in the, in Boston studying, I also worked. Of course I played a little part, you will not see my name on the movie. But, yeah, I was there, and I enjoyed it.

I scanned your mind,
Inside out,
Discovered some memories,
Buried and forgotten.

It's cold outside,
Once warm within,
You could've been somewhere else,
Now it's bone to skin.

Yan Haunters : So I came to, I came to China, and this was about 8 months ago. I was offered a job, anyway, there is jobs. But this was in the information technology industry. The money was good, but it doesn't give me the happiness. And then I was offered a position here. Working here in "Keeping in touch Culture", it means everything to me. It has combined all the elements in my life for the time being. Say everyday you say to yourself, this is really what I want to say, this is really how I want to do it. You can only find happiness and stability within yourself if you don't lie to yourself.

Everything is new to him when he works as a music recording specialist in China. He has brought all his musical experiences here. He enjoys his work.

Yan Haunters : There is something very strong here, this Chinese culture, one of those things is the music. The traditional music in China is very very strong. If you would ask me how is the traditional music in Belgian, well, it's very questionable, I don't know if I could give you a lot of examples. But there is lot here in China. So we are here to preserve that to help people to make a recording of it. This needs to be put on CD. This needs to be heard by Chinese people and people in the world.

In Yan's eye, the little studio is a beautiful place. He would work for more than 10 hours here each day. His work and life has been combined with music perfectly.

Yan Haunters:
Music, it's very powerful. It's very human. It's just a beautiful way of communication. It's a language.

岁月如歌
  来自比利时的杨侯德,在中国做录音师,他说音乐就是他的生命……

我看见你坐在桥下,
我看见你坐在渠旁,
我看见你的父母在哭泣,
我看见你的兄弟在辛劳……

杨侯德:我很小的时候就经常唱歌,不光是唱那些已经存在的歌曲,还自己编歌,我上床睡觉时,就唱我身边的事情,白天发生的事情,我唱的声音很大而且唱个不停,以致于我妈妈会过来敲开我的房门说:“好了,够了,现在停止,我们得睡觉!”

杨侯德对音乐有一种近乎痴迷的热爱,他十二岁的时候就开始尝试写一些简单的歌曲,到了十五六时他参加了不同风格的乐队。大学毕业后,他感到需要更多的了解音乐和音乐技术,于是他去了美国的伯克利音乐学院。

杨侯德:去美国不容易,很贵,得费很大的精力。我花光了个人的积蓄,但钱还是不够。我四处寻找奖学金机会和对我有信心的人。两年后我终于取得了奖学金。我在美国一头扎进音乐和音乐技术,前后有四年。在波士顿上学时,我半工半读,当然,我只是小角色,你在字幕上看不到我的名字,但我的确在场,得到了享受。

我翻遍你的心思,发现了一些记忆,被埋葬和遗忘的记忆。

外面真冷,也曾温暖,你本可不在此地,如今天寒彻骨……

杨侯德:8个月前我来到中国,我找到一份工作,工作毕竟是有的,但那是在IT行业,那里工资很高,但却不能让我快乐。然后我得到了录音棚提供的工作机会。在这里工作对我来说意味着一切,它是一个已经实现的梦想,它完美地结合了我当前生活的各个方面。按你所愿生活和表达,对自己保持诚实,才可能获得内心的快乐与安宁。

在中国做录音师的日子,一切都是崭新的,杨侯德把他的全部的音乐经验带到中国,他在工作中体味着快乐。

杨侯德:中国文化有一些强劲有力的东西,其中之一是中国传统音乐。中国传统音乐非常棒,要让我谈谈比利时传统音乐,我会不知该说什么,恐怕举不出太多例子。但这里传统音乐的因素却非常之多。我将为保存和录制这些音乐作出贡献。它们应当被录制成CD,被中国国内外的人听到。

小小的录音间在杨侯德的眼里是个美丽的空间,每天他都会在这里工作十几个小时,他的工作和生活与音乐已经完美地结合在一起。

杨侯德:音乐非常有力,非常人性化,是如此美丽的沟通方式。音乐是一种语言。
