About

Lillian is an imaginative storytelling project that utilize the concepts of traditional audio picture-book and concept albums, creating an experience where the narratives will be determine by viewers interpretations.

Lillian 是一個以有聲繪本以及概念專輯的元素為基礎的一項創作企劃。透過開放式的敘事方法去講述一個可以因為讀者的觀點而改變的故事。  

This campaign has been supported by Crowdfunding Creativity, a mentorship program from Creative Scotland and Paved With Gold. If you help us reach our goal, Lillian will be awarded 25% of the goal amount (£6,000) from Creative Scotland to make this project a reality.

這個預購募資計畫受到了 Crowdfunding Creativity 的協助,一個由 Creative Scotland 以及 Pave With Gold 促成的獨立創作者培育計畫。如果大夥們能幫助 Lillian 達到募資門檻的話,Creative Scotland 將會額外贈與 Lillian 目標門檻( £6,000 )之 25% 做為實現 Lillian 的補助。

Led by composer and producer Terry Peng, the project was first conceptualized in early 2014 and started to take its form later that year, when Hina Fujimoto became the project's leading artist. Joined by a group of talented and beautifully obscure composers (Yu-Po Chen, Shuzhen C, Josh Anderson, Luci Holland, Jacob Pernell, and Stuart Hosking), the team set out to craft Lillian's musical journey.

由作曲家製作人 Terry Peng 於 2014 初開始構思並於該年底在日籍繪師 Hina Fujimoto 加入後開始製作。其團隊包括一群才華洋溢、出色且低調的作曲家 ( Yu-Po Chen, Shuzhen Chan, Josh Anderson, Luci Holland, Jacob Pernell, Stuart Hosking ),共同著手打造這趟屬於莉莉安的音樂之旅。

The project was created in an attempt to explore creative storytelling using the relationships between imagery and music, and how they relate to each other in order to create a narrative that can be influenced by individuals interpretations.

創立企劃的構想在於探索不同敘事故事的方式,利用圖像與音樂之間的關係,以及兩者如何相應互動來製作出一個能夠因為不同的觀賞角度而變化的故事。

The story is divided into 7 chapters, and replacing the words, the story of the picture-book is told with 7 pieces of music. Each track is a composer's interpretation of a chapter from our protagonist's bizarre journey.

故事以一位女孩為主軸,女孩與其同伴為了尋找些什麼而在一個未知世界裡旅行。繪本分為七個章節,裡頭沒有文字敘述,取而代之的是七首音樂作品。每一首作品皆為一位作曲家對主角這趟詭譎旅途其中一個章節的詮釋。

The process of creating Lillian, and its storytelling aspects are very unique - whilst creating the story, the artist and all composers involved were never given the full picture of what the story is about. Instead, all they were given was the overall theme, some keywords, and a project brief include the collaboration guidelines. This is to ensure that there are enough rooms for imaginations to flow, as well as giving the creators space to create and interpret.

創作 Lillian 的過程與其故事敘述方式皆十分獨特 - 創作故事時,參與企劃的插畫家與各個作曲家從未得以一窺故事全貌。他們只知道大略的主題與些許關鍵字,以及取得一份包含合作方針的企劃概要。這也是為了能讓創作者們有足夠的空間去發揮以及想像。

For the illustrations, the overall theme was given to the artist, and the rest were left for her to improvise and nurture them into 7 illustrations that act as chapters for the title character's journey. The illustrations were then distributed randomly to the composers as inspiration for them to compose a piece of music.

插畫方面,插畫家只有被給予大略的主題,之後便任由她即興發揮並繪製出七幅插畫,分別扮演這趟旅途中不同的章節。這些插畫接著便被隨機分配給各個作曲家,作為作曲的靈感。

For the music, and in addition to their visual influence, the composers were also each asked to use the music composed for the page before theirs, by the previous composer, as a source of inspiration. They were asked to reflect on and consider continuity or discontinuity in relation to the previous composer's piece. What these elements have created, is a story told with individuals' voices and their interpretations of the narrative chapter before theirs.

音樂方面,除了視覺的影響外,每位作曲家必須把上一章節由另一位作曲家譜出的作品,作為自己作曲的靈感來源。他們得顧及自己與上一位作曲家作品之間的連貫性或非連貫性。這些因素使得故事不單是每個人獨自的聲音,亦是每個人對自己上一章節的詮釋。

After 4 years, the project is finally ready to enter the production phase, and we are here asking for your help! At this point we have completed all the artworks and music, but in order to physically produce the the picture book and concept album we require a much larger fund to make it happen, and that's why we have decided to use this Kickstarter as our preordering platform!

歷經了長達四年的醞釀,我們終於可以開始唱片以及書本的實體製作了,但需要大家的幫忙!目前我們已經把所有曲目跟章節中的繪圖製作完畢,但要實現實體釋出我們需要更大的資金。於是我們決定以預購的方式在 Kickstarter 上開啟眾籌計畫!

After many discussions, we have decided to release Lillian as limited run only, and it will be available in the format of Digital, CD, LP Vinyl. We also have them in different bundle for your to choose from, as well as some merchandise for you to see in our rewards section.

經過討論後,我們決定以限量的形式釋出 Lillian ,而出售的格式將會以數位, CD ,黑膠三種格式登場。另外我們還有限量的套裝以及周邊供大家選擇,不過數量有限,想要的話動作要快喔!

Most of the funding we raised here will go towards the package and product design, because we want to make sure when you receive your copy, marks the start of the experience. We are also looking to use some of the funding for the additional recordings and masterings.

在這裡募到的款項,決大部分將會使用在包裝設計以及印刷上面,因為我們希望各位拿到實體書那一刻便是體驗這個故事的開始。另外我們也希望能把一小部份的款項被用於錄音以及後期製作。

We hope to do more project like this in the future, and expand our communities. So if you are interested in our work, or if you know someone who may enjoy our work, please share it with them, because without a listener, the story cannot be told, and we want to share it with you.

我們希望未來可以創造更多不一樣的作品以及邀請跟多藝術家加入我們的行列,倘若您對我們的作品有興趣,或認識可能會喜歡我們作品的親朋好友 - 請分享給他們知道,因為若沒有聽眾,故事便無法開始,而我們希望能與您分享這部作品。

Thanks for reading,

謝謝各位的耐心閱讀

Team Lillian.

Risks and challenges

Without your support, LILLIAN will not be realized, seen or heard. We hope to gain your support in funding the project and bringing the project to the world!

如果沒有各位的支持,Lillian 將無法實現,被閱讀,被聽到。我們希望能夠得到大家的支持以及贊助幫忙實現這個企劃把 Lillian 的故事與世界分享!

Turning any ideas into their physical form can be difficult and challenging; and in the case of Lillian, we want to make sure the physical look and touch be part of the overall narratives and experiences. Finalizing the designed package will be an equally creative challenge, we are a team of creative individuals who have a wide range of experiences, and use them to overcome the incoming challenges and deliver the products with the highest stands possible!

將任何想法實現成實體永遠都是具有挑戰的,我們希望 LILLIAN 最後的包裝,設計也成為故事的一部份,所以這也將會是一個非常大的挑戰。我們是一群匯集了不同能力以及經驗的創作者們,所以我們有信心可以用我們得經驗跨越過任何困難,並呈現出最好的給各位!

This Kickstarter and you are a vital part of bringing this project to life, we would like to thank you for supporting us and looking forward embark on this journey with you.

想將 Lillian 實體化,這個募資計畫以及各位 Lillian 之友對於我們來說是無比重要,所以想要在這裡謝謝大家給予我們的鼓勵以及支持,我們希望能與各位踏上這段旅程。
