live & party!

 飲み友達の結婚式。新郎が新聞社に勤めていることもあり、随分と素敵な「号外?」が披露宴の席で配られてました。

 もう何回目になるか分からないけど、結婚パーティーの幹事をしてほしいとの白羽の矢が飛んできたのが、昨年の暮れ。こだわりが少ない人のパーティーは自由にアレンジできるものの、バンド演奏を中心としたパーティーを構成したいとの要望で、ここ数ヶ月は色々と頭をひねりました。

 ぶっ通しで新郎新婦が演奏するならまだしも、新郎新婦は1曲のみで、あとは他の人たち。招待客は、知らない他人の演奏を見ても楽しくないだろうし、ましてや、その曲がわけわからない曲ならなおさらだろうし。どうしたら、自然な流れの中で、なおかつ新郎新婦を主役に置いたままパーティーが進められるか、考えました。今までもやったことがあるのですが、もう古い演出の使いまわしもどうかと思い・・・。

 ということで、新郎新婦の生い立ちから出会い付き合いまでを紹介するインタビューと写真を中心にしたビデオを作成し、その流れの中で、新郎新婦になじみの深い、その流れに沿った曲を合間合間でライブ演奏して行くという手法をとりました。大きなスクリーンで流れるビデオ映像。そのスクリーンが途中途中でステージの幕と化し、ビデオ演奏の途中で「幕」が上がって行くと、ライブ演奏が始まるという仕掛け。タイミングの調整とかが難航したものの、演奏メンバーの協力もあって、とてもスムーズに流れて、いやにかっこいいパーティーでした(自画自賛)。僕も久しぶりにステージに立って、ボーカルを取らせてもらいました。

 不思議なもので、ビデオで写真やインタビューを流しているだけでも、いわゆる心にしみるようなラブソングを流しているだけで、愛情の深まりを表現できたり、元気なロックを流すことでやんちゃな少年・少女時代を演出できたり、軽快な音楽で愉快なムードを演出できたり、無音の映像に、自分の作り上げたい雰囲気を演出してくれる曲をつけるだけで、いかようにでも「空気感」を考えられるものなのだと、改めて実感。また、生演奏が人を引き込む力もまた偉大で、結婚式でのライブも結構やってきたが、こんなに会場と一体化して盛り上がったのも初めてというほど。最後の曲では、会場の全員が立ち上がって乗ってました。音楽の力を改めて知らされた夜でした。

 おふたりさん、結婚おめでとう!!

I've been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours these days, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It's pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Many thanks!

I for my part however did not become familiar with her talent till I saw and heard her sing in "Vina Del Mar" in Chile. It is also a good idea to throw in some songs that are favorites amongst the girls and favorites amongst the boys. Since every event is different and clients request different songs a Dj needs to do some homework to compile appropriate set lists and mixes.

Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
