P4 「我在崇基唸書的年代,鬥快 登上馬鞍山之巔,是每年必有 的活動。」 ‘When I was a student at Chung Chi, the climbing … was a regular yearly event.’ 「你只能給最好的。」 那天在利希慎音樂廳聽林懷民演講的聽眾,不知道他們其實錯過 演講最精彩的一幕,那是演講開始前兩個多小時進行的彩排。為了 播放一段關於雲門舞作的短片,林懷民與工作人員在音樂廳花了 近一個小時,盯着畫面反覆調試顏色和聲音。「這裏都綠掉了,顏 色都乾乾的……這裏應該是正黃色的感覺……聲音低一點,有點 回音。」一絲不苟的確實,對美感的不妥協,不斷要求,反覆糾正。 值得為只有三分鐘的片段花這麼多工夫嗎?林懷民答:「你只能給 最好的。」(詳見頁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 「我常說,自己的宗教信仰是基督 教,倫理方面採用儒家思想,而管 治則以道家自然無為為依歸。」 ‘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.’ 《中大通訊》電子版 Online version of CUHK Newsletter
