街头艺术面面观(四)

  Interview 访谈

  Darren Snow, an English teacher in Beijing, talked about his experience as a busker.

  在北京做英语教师的戴润·斯诺讲述了他当街头艺人的经历。

  ——Darren, tell us about your busking experience.

  ——戴润,跟我们说说你的街头艺人经历吧。

  Darren: My busking experience is quite limited but it's been quite good. Once, I backpacked around Europe and I brought an acoustic guitar with me. My plan was to make the money I needed to get-by, by busking. This was quite an ambitious plan. It didn't quite work out like that. But I did busk in a few cities.

  戴润:我街头表演的经历不是很多,但却相当不错。有一次,我轻装环游欧洲,随身带着一把原声吉他。我打算通过街头表演来赚足我需要的旅行费。这个计划过于雄心勃勃。结果与其有很大出入。不过,我还是在一些城市的街头进行了表演。

  I normally found it was harder in the established busking areas, to get a spot, because there were people who were there everyday. Especially in tourist cities because there's a lot of people passing by and they have spare money because they are on holidays. There would usually be a pedestrian street where people busked and they would become quite established. They'd do it there everyday and they'd make quite good money doing it. They weren't that enamoured with a young guy coming in and sitting down with a guitar and stealing their business.

  我通常会发现,很难在一些约定俗成的街头表演区中觅得一席之地,因为有一些人每天都会去那里。尤其是在旅游城市,原因是,有很多人只是路过,由于他们是在度假,所以对钱很节省。通常会有一条步行街,人们聚集在那里表演街头艺术,并会变得小有名气。他们会每天在那里表演,而他们表演的收入也是相当不错的。如果某个年轻人来到这里,坐下就开始弹奏吉他,并抢走他们的生意的话,他们就不那么高兴了。

  But I did do it a few times and it was fine. People usually reacted quite well. You know, you are foreign there, so there's a bit of interest with that. They want to hear different songs. In the end, I didn't do it for the money so much. In the areas where you could make money it was usually just established people. I did it because I found it quite interesting. You would meet people and sometimes they would join in. It was an interesting thing to do in a new city.

  不过,我确实有几次体验,感觉不错。人们的反响通常是相当不错的。你知道,你在那里是个异乡人,所以人们对此有点感兴趣。他们想听到不同风格的歌曲。到了最后,我都不是太为了钱而表演了。在你可以赚到钱的地方,通常都只是一些已赢得名气的人聚在那里。我在街头表演过,因为我发现那很有趣。你会遇到一些人,有时他们还会与表演相呼应。在一个陌生的城市里来做这个是很有趣的。

  ——Have you ever busked in your on hometown?

  ——你曾在自己的家乡表演过街头艺术吗?

  Darren: I've never busked in Dublin city, but I've busked in some of the suburbs where I've lived. That can be fun. If you are with a few people it's almost a social thing; a few people with a couple of guitars, sing a few songs and some people stop and watch and maybe you can make a little money.

  戴润:我从没有在都柏林城表演过街头艺术,但我在我居住的郊区的某些地方表演过街头艺术。那可以是一件乐事。如果你和一些朋友在一起,那就几乎可以说是一个交际活动了;几个人拿着几把吉他,哼唱着一些歌曲,会招来一些人驻足欣赏,可能你还会赚到点钱。
