艺人资料
1965年9月11日生于美国纽约哈林区。巧的是,他的生日正是世贸大厦遭到恐怖袭击的那一天,当年同时遭殃的还有他位于世贸大厦内的音乐工作室,想必他在36岁生日那天过得很不愉快。
评价
原名理查德·梅尔维尔·霍尔(Richard Melville Hall)受纽约这个全美最大的文化艺术中心影响,他的作品始终游走于流行与电子之间,音乐路线迎合了大多数年轻人的聆听品位。他在电子乐界颇有建树,兼任制作人、创作家、DJ,曾是个朋克乐手,甚至还是一家素食餐馆的老板。因为家人跟《白鲸记》(Moby Dick)的作者赫尔曼·梅尔维尔(Herman Melville)有亲戚关系,所以他从小就被人叫做“莫比”。
发展历程
莫比正是现实世界里永远长不大的孩子。少年时迷恋朋克乐,组建过自己的乐队,在多个摇滚场所演出。后来他玩上了电子乐,虽然起初默默无闻,但他一直坚信最终会被人们所欣赏。上帝注定眷顾那些锲而不舍的人,1992年,他推出了个人首张同名专辑《莫比》。紧接着,1993年4月发表了第2张专辑《早期地下》(Early Underground),同年7月《遥远的故事》(The Story So Far)又迅速问世,令人们惊异于这个音乐天才的灵感迸发速度之快和作品的精湛。但是鲜活音乐于一个颓废的商业世界是难于发展的,美国的音乐媒体一直在忽略他,积极的反响寥寥无几。
签约Elektra后,莫比1994年的EP《迁移》(Move)为日后的成功做好铺垫。1995年的专辑《万物失常》(Everything Is Wrong)获选《Spin》杂志年度最佳榜首,这次成功给了莫比足够的信心,他的舞曲音乐当年就成为了英美等国的榜上常客。在隔年制作的专辑《动物的权利》(Animal Rights)中,他古灵精怪的性格再次显现:偏离高科技舞曲音乐人身份去作一张激烈的摇滚专辑。专辑名称中也显然传达着他一贯的清教徒和素食倾向。然而这一次,市场的回应再次下跌。虽然每张专辑都有不同优秀意识形态的表现,却始终得不到大多数人的认可。
长达7年的低迷状态,他却毫不气馁,继续摸索制作自己喜欢的音乐。1999年对他来说,绝对算是扬眉吐气的一年,是他人生中的一个重要转折点。这一年,他被歌迷和乐评的惊叫与赞美所包围。《Play》以重回高科技锐舞风格取得重大成功,高居各大音乐排行榜首席,创造了1000万张的销售传奇。《Play》为他的事业低潮期实现大了逆转。至此莫比的声誉终于到达沸腾,狂欢即将开始。在《Play》中,他开启了通向极乐王国的那扇门,从黑人音乐文化中找到了灵感,取材探向更具灵性深度的南方黑人福音。采用民俗历史学家艾伦·洛马克斯(Alan Lomax)20世纪初田野录音的单曲《甜心》(Honey),更受到多方好评。从此一发不可收势,2002年的专辑《18》全球销售400万张。2005年的专辑《酒店》(Hotel),再度引发抢购热潮。
不光是专辑,像《甜心》、《身体韵律》(Bodyrock)、《极致》(Porcelain)这些单曲成绩也同样突出,展现了他擅长的眩幻功力。为电影《海滩》、《挑战星期天》、《明日帝国》、《双峰》等原声配乐亦得到各界的不俗评价。为《双峰》配乐片段而成的单曲《进行》(Go),更随影片的上映迅速打入英国音乐榜前10,由于大受欢迎,此曲的混音版本不胜枚举。有“高科技舞曲领域的伊基·波普(Iggy Pop)”之称的莫比,主要侧重于高科技舞曲以及一些悦耳动听的电子小品,嘻哈、锐舞、氛围乐元素应有尽有,这个工作狂加电子天才在自己的记录片里说:“如果不把时间投入到创作、制作、演出上的话,简直无法想象生活将会变成什么样。”
2016年他的著作《Porcelain: A Memoir in May 2016》出版发行。
Richard Melville Hall (born September 11, 1965), known by his stage name Moby, is an American singer-songwriter, musician, DJ and photographer. He is well known for his electronic music, veganism, and support of animal rights. Moby has sold over 20 million albums worldwide.AllMusic considers him "one of the most important dance music figures of the early 1990s, helping bring the music to a mainstream audience both in the UK and in America".
Moby gained attention in the early 1990s with his electronic dance music work, which experimented in the techno and breakbeat hardcore genres. With his fifth studio album, the electronica and house music-influenced Play, he gained international success. Originally released in mid-1999, the album sold 6,000 copies in its first week, and it re-entered the charts in early 2000 and became an unexpected hit, producing eight singles and selling over 10 million copies worldwide.Moby followed the album in 2002 with 18, which was also successful, selling over 5 million copies worldwide and receiving mostly positive reviews, though some criticized it for being too similar to Play.
His next major release, 2005's mostly upbeat Hotel was a stylistic departure, incorporating more alternative rock elements than previous albums, and received mixed reviews. It sold around 2 million copies worldwide. After 2008's dance-influenced Last Night (2008), he returned to the downtempo electronica of Play and 18 with 2009's mostly-ambient Wait for Me,finding higher critical acclaim and moderate sales, as well as 2011's Destroyed. Moby's latest album, Innocents, was released on October 1, 2013.
Moby has also co-written, produced, and remixed music for Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Daft Punk, Mylène Farmer, Brian Eno, Pet Shop Boys, Britney Spears, New Order, Public Enemy, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, Soundgarden, and others.
He'll also participate in the 2015 evening supporting the work of the David Lynch Foundation that took the stage at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on April 1, 2015. The evening, entitled "The Music of David Lynch," launched the DLF’s tenth anniversary celebrations, and helped to raise funds to teach Transcendental Meditation (TM) to 1,000 at-risk youth in Los Angeles. Performing artists included Angelo Badalamenti, Chrysta Bell, Donovan, Duran Duran, Jim James, Julee Cruise, Karen O, Kinny Landrum, Lykke Li, Rebekah Del Rio, Rob Mathes, Sky Ferreira, Tennis, Twin Peaks, Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd of the Flaming Lips, and Zola Jesus.
Moby released an autobiography entitled Porcelain: A Memoir in May 2016.
