P4 「我在崇基念书的年代,斗快 登上马鞍山之巅,是每年必有 的活动。」 ‘When I was a student at Chung Chi, the climbing … was a regular yearly event.’ 「你只能给最好的。」 那天在利希慎音乐厅听林怀民演讲的听众,不知道他们其实错过 演讲最精彩的一幕,那是演讲开始前两个多小时进行的彩排。为了 播放一段关于云门舞作的短片,林怀民与工作人员在音乐厅花了 近一个小时,盯画面反覆调试颜色和声音。「这里都绿掉了,颜 色都干干的……这里应该是正黄色的感觉……声音低一点,有点 回音。」一丝不苟的确实,对美感的不妥协,不断要求,反覆纠正。 值得为只有三分钟的片段花这么多工夫吗?林怀民答:「你只能给 最好的。」(详见页2 — 3) ‘We only give the best.’ The audience at Lin Hwai-min’s talk may not have realized that they had missed perhaps the most enlightening part of the event. During the rehearsal, which took place some two hours before the talk, Mr. Lin and the technicians of the Lee Hysan Concert Hall spent about an hour staring at the screen showing Cloud Gate dancers performing, painstakingly trying to get the colours and sound right. ‘This part is too green. The colours look astringent.… This should be bright yellow.… Lower the pitch. I heard echoes.’ Scrupulous attention to detail. Uncompromising aesthetics. Incessant adjustments. Was a three-minute long video clip worthy of the effort? Lin Hwai-min replied, ‘We only give the best.’ (See pp. 2—3) P12 「我常说,自己的宗教信仰是基督 教,伦理方面采用儒家思想,而管 治则以道家自然无为为依归。」 ‘I am by religion a Christian. When it comes to ethics, I am a Confucian. In administration, I stick to Daoism, that is, acting naturally.’ 《中大通讯》电子版 Online version of CUHK Newsletter
