關於

簡介林夕,通常如下:「作詞人,香港大學畢業即開始歌詞創作,至今超過三十年,作品接近四千,包括廣東國語作品。同期從事報章、電視台、唱片公司、廣播電台等行業,並撰寫專欄,出版書籍。」對他本人來說,就只有一個身分:文字工作者。從事過不同行業,只有一個目標:希望透過文字觀察、探究、解剖人生人性,希望做到寫情歌也同時在書寫哲學。歌詞不合適也容納不下的題材,如社會時政,就在專欄發表再結集成書。從事過的媒體工作,也只為了吸取最真實的社會經驗,從而讓文字創作的生命更豐厚更立體。

Lin Xi is mostly known for his lyrics work in Chinese music field in the past 30 years with 4000 published works.

For him, his sole purpose is to WRITE. Lin observes, studies and analyze human nature through his words and compositions; those jobs at various media related firms certainly fulfilled his needs to absorb the authentic experiences for his creative writing. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
