Albert Hera

Albert Hera是一位无论在独唱还是合唱中都能展现精彩即兴的出色爵士音乐家。他可以被描述为“声音的叙述者”,因为他曾经以传统世界音乐为艺术课题进行了深入研究,尤其着重于人声与合唱的实践,并且通过自创的拟声语言,模仿并重新创作了来自大自然的传统声音与节奏,以及那些来自异国他乡的语言和音乐,光是听到,就让人对那遥远国度的绮丽风光产生无限遐想。他总是在无止尽地探索,并深深扎根于爵士乐,用声音织就一个又一个迷人的故事,每每令人惊叹。也正因如此,一个全新的音乐流派因他而生:史诗爵士(Epic Jazz)。

Hera的热情与他想要超越传统限制的渴望,使他不断深化在声音上的探索。从2005年起,他参与了众多相关项目,包括国际语音矫正双年会(Biennial International Conference of Phoniatrics)和声音疗法“艺术声音(The Artistic Voice)”,并与国际专家Dott. Franco Fussi、Alfonso Maccarini和Alfonso Borragan合作,积极地投入研究,以更好地理解发声产出的构造与功能。Hera持续不断地进行着自我内省与对声音的钻研,科学与艺术的结合,使他的演唱始终充满活力,并且以一种稳定而快速的状态不断进化。

由于其技术与风格兼具的杰出能力,以及在人文与教育上异常敏锐的感受力,他也被认为是意大利最负盛名也最有实力的声乐导师之一。他的声音治疗诊所在意大利甚至是海外都拥有极高的人气。

2009年,他与注明爵士音乐节Bobby McFerrin的歌剧项目"Bobble"中与之合作,首次亮相于德国罗拉赫的Stimmen音乐节。2010年,他再次应McFerrin之邀,跨刀其野心巨作《VOCAbuLarieS》,在全部的7首曲目中参与演唱了其中的4首,这张专辑获得了3项葛莱美提名,并在有色人种促进协会形象奖(NAACP Image Awards)中被评为“最佳世界音乐专辑”。

这段合作经历为Hera开启了一扇新的艺术之门。他是第一批将CircleSongs工作坊引进意大利的声乐家之一,并为这种特殊的艺术表演形式建立了一套自己的方法,将他的研究成果、教学经验和艺术取向都结合其中:人声即兴成为了一种有效的方式,让歌手得以更广泛而深入地探索声音的无穷可能,并提升对声音的控制力,而这种方式并不过多地着重于外在技巧,而是更多地基于歌手自身的情感来源,以及一起唱歌时产生的、最为简单纯粹的快乐。至今为止,他已经在意大利的多个剧院举办了CircleSongs的音乐会,在观众和评论家之中都广获好评。

Albert Hera拥有两张个人专辑,《Positive Consciousness》(2005)和《AriA》(2011)。其它重要的合作还包括:作为特别嘉宾参与了2012年伦敦无伴奏人声合唱音乐节(London A Cappella Festival);同年,继Paolo Fresu、Antonello Salis、Tullio de Piscopo和Stefano Bagnoli等享誉国际的重要艺人之后,受爵士钢琴家Diego Baiardi邀请,作为唯一的男歌手参与其最后一个项目"Bonne Nuit"。

Albert Hera

 

Albert Hera, an amazing jazzman specialized in solo and choral improvisation, could be described as a "Sound Teller": he has focused his artistic research on the study of traditional world music, with particular attention to vocal and choral practices. Using invented onomatopoeic languages he imitates and reproduces the traditional sounds and rhythms of nature, language and music of specific countries drawing suggestive pictures of those remote landscapes. His incessant exploration, his strong root in jazz music and his amazing ability to interweave intriguing sound-tales lead to the creation of a new musical genre: the Epic Jazz.

His passion and need of going beyond formal restrictions lead him to a continuous deepening of voice possibilities. Since 2005 he has taken part to the Biennial International Conference of Phoniatrics and Voice Therapy "The Artistic Voice" and actively contributed to researches directed to a better understanding of the anatomy and function of vocal production, in collaboration with international experts as Dott. Franco Fussi, Alfonso Maccarini and Alfonso Borragan. Putting art to use in science, Hera continuously feeds his introspective and vocal research, attitude that makes his singing always dynamic and in constant, rapid evolution.

In reason of his great technical-stylistic competence and of his remarkable human and pedagogical sensitivity, he is considered one the most capable and reputed singing teacher in Italy. His clinics are highly required in Italy and, recently, also abroad.

In 2009 he collaborated with the renowned jazzman Bobby McFerrin to his project "Bobble", first presented at the Stimmen Festival. In 2010 he was again invited by McFerrin to sing in 4 of the 7 tracks included in his ambitious opera "VOCAbuLarieS", nominated to three Grammy Awards and winner of the Image Awards as best World Music Album.

Thanks to this encounter he found a new artistic impulse. He was one of the first vocalists to carry in (and across) Italy CircleSongs workshops. He worked a lot to build a personal approach to this particular kind of artistic performance and he found in it a unique opportunity to combine his research, pedagogic and artist interests: vocal improvisation becomes a way to improve the singer's ability to explore the incredible range of voice possibilities and to increase his/her sense of control, not much drawing on external technical tips as on his/her own emotional resources and on the simple, pure pleasure that comes from singing together. So far Albert Hera has realized CircleSongs concerts in many Italian theaters, with great consent from both audience and critics.

He has personally produced two albums, "Positive Consciousness" (2005) and "AriA" (2011). Other significant collaborations see him as special guest in the London a Cappella Festival 2012 and as the only male singer invited to take part to the last project of the jazz pianist Diego Baiardi, "Bonne Nuit" (2012), next to artists of international importance such as Paolo Fresu, Antonello Salis, Tullio de Piscopo, Stefano Bagnoli etc.
