📃 中英对照演讲稿

I've been playing TED for nearly a decade,and I've very rarely played any new songs of my own. And that was largelybecause there weren't any.

我已在TED演奏了将近十年,可是我几乎很少演奏自己的新歌。主要原因是,根本就没有。


So I've been busy with a couple ofprojects, and one of them was this: The Nutmeg. A 1930s ship's lifeboat, whichI've been restoring in the garden of my beach house in England. And, so now,when the polar ice caps melt, my recording studio will rise up like an ark, andI'll float off into the drowned world like a character from a J.G. Ballardnovel. 

我一直在忙于几个项目,其中一个, 叫做“肉豆蔻”(植物名)--一艘20世纪30年代的救生艇。我把它停放在我那英格兰的海滩别墅一个后花园里。要是现在 北极的冰川融化, 我的这艘录音室就会浮起来有如诺亚方舟, 在这个淹没的世界里漂向远方, 就像英国作家J·G·巴拉德小说里的角色一样。


During the day, the Nutmeg collects energy from solar panels on the roofof the wheelhouse, and from a 450 watt turbine up the mast. So that when itgets dark, I've got plenty of power. And I can light up the Nutmeg like abeacon. And so I go in there until the early hours of the morning, and I workon new songs. I'd like to play to you guys, if you're willing to be the firstaudience to hear it.

白天, “肉豆蔻”可以通过舵手室里的太阳能电池板, 收集太阳能, 和桅杆上一个 450瓦特的涡轮机。那么当夜幕降临, 我就有足够的电力照明, 点亮照明灯,在黑暗中仿佛灯塔。我便待在里面创作直到天明。我已经完成几首新歌, 如果你们愿意成为第一批听众, 我将非常乐意演奏。


It's about Billie Holiday. And it appearsthat, some night in 1947 she left her physical space and was missing all night,until she reappeared in the morning. But I know where she was. She was with meon my lifeboat. And she was hot.

是关于比利霍利迪(爵士乐坛的天后级巨星)的。当时有传说, 1974年的某个夜晚,她离开那个时空,消失了一整晚, 直到第二天早晨又再度出现。不过我知道她去了哪里, 其实她和我一起在这艘方舟, 她很火辣。
