Born in Inner Mongolia, China, 22 Oct 1990, Su Zixu moves to Beijing at a young age for his music career. With self-learning, he dived into the world of music, playing guitar with his vigorous and impregnable appreciation. He laid a solid foundation through the years, and yet never felt drying up of inspirations. He participates different music projects to fulfill his longings for self-expression, tracing out the rooting sound. Beneath the fragmented surface, a great force was hidden inside. The unconstrained guitar riffs, poetic lyrics, and live improvisations were unfettered by the bounds of reality, Su’s music flourished—that will never be slipped from one’s memory. Yes, he is a guitarist; a singer-song writer; also, a poet.
The World Music project absorbs the essence of both eastern and western music with a mixture of guitar, flute, cello, Indian tabla and lead vocal. The Zen spirit of eastern music and the delicate texture of western music contrast charmingly with each other, relaxing the audiences at ease.
The Paramecia在2013年成立于南京,乐队的音乐 风格融合根源民谣、世界音乐和前卫艺术摇滚, 乐手们打破常规形式,用奇幻的旋律结合饱含思 想性的歌词给人带来全新的视听享受。苏紫旭在 其中担任词曲创作、吉他手与主唱。
Su&The Paramecia, a music group which is founded in 2013. The band often classified as psychedelic rock, it is also influenced by classic rock, progressive rock and indie rock. Su is in charge of song writing, guitar and vocal parts.
2015年1月他参与大型原创类音乐节目《中国好歌曲》第二季的录制活动是他音乐事业得到飞 速发展的一块奠基石。直到现在,歌曲《没有你》和《融解》依旧是被乐迷和观众称赞的佳 作,它们也被诸多音乐爱好者翻唱并流传着。 随后他顺利的推出个人首张EP 《星辰往事》, 同时发行诗集《恰似少年人》。自2014年开始,苏在全国30余个城市留下了巡演的足迹。同 时也参与各大音乐节的演出。
As a musical individual, Su‘s given us a lot. His breakthrough singles on the stage of the Chinese reality talent show “SONG OF CHINA” Season 2,《融·解》(Melting·Collapsing) and 《没有你》 (Without You), brought him to the public’s attention and this was secured with follow ups, EP “Stardust Memories(星尘往事)” , a poetry book named “The Youth(恰似少年人)” and several talented hits. Su has performed live on festivals and venues since 2014, mostly in China. These gigs and shows were held in more than 30 cities.
2017年初,苏和他的乐队成员前往英国,在路上进行对音乐的探索和学习。在英国两个月的 巡演和游历,使他找到了新的灵感,并即刻开始了新作的录音工作。在此期间他也首次尝试 创作英文歌曲,并希望有一天能精准的用英文去完整的表达自我。 “我感觉到今年的我已经准备好了,有能力去实现我对于音乐的想法和目标。”
At the beginning of 2017, Su and his bandmates went to UK learn and study music, they were touring in England for a while. From London Hackney Walk to Leeds Global Fusion Show, they also searched materials for their new album and started to record it. Two months experience in UK inspired Su a lot on writing music and poetry. He tried to write an English song for the first time in his life, and ambitiously aspires to one day learn how to express himself in English very well.
2017年10月,The Paramecia 成功推出首张录音室专辑《飞出迷楼》,并在10月7日的北京-疆 进酒完成了12人编制的大乐队《飞出迷楼》专辑首发演出。作为乐队的灵魂人物,苏带领乐 队为观众呈现了精湛的演奏、奇幻的歌词、以及复杂的音乐质感。富有冲击力的嗓音,明朗 的主音吉他,层次分明的鼓,以及优美富有旋律性的器乐部分,唤起了听众对于一个超然世 界存在的臆想。10月底,苏紫旭与草履虫乐队踏上“飞出迷楼”全国巡演,足迹遍布全国23 个城市。
Su&The Paramecia successfully launched their first new studio album “Out of the Labyrinth” in October,2017. At the same time, the band performed their new album which experiments with 12 players on the stage and found extraordinary progressive rock sound at Omni Space, Beijing on October 7th.
As a great team leader, Su makes the band powerful and strong. Su&The Paramecia has always attracted audiences drawn to their mix of daunting virtuosity, cosmic(often mystical) lyrics, complex musical textures, and of course, powerful yet delicate lead vocals. At the same time, loud, heavily layered guitar and drum parts, beautiful and melodic authentic instruments parts all evoked fantastic landscapes that are strangely compelling to the imagination of the listener.
The tour “Out of the Labyrinth” started from the end of October to the middle of December in 2017, dozens of venues from 23 cities in which they locate are included.
从不墨守成规,苏在不断的探索并突破民谣、爵士、古典、摇滚乐的边界,以他多面的编曲 与创作能力。2018年初,他又将远赴英国,踏上漫长的自我修炼之路。同时,也已准备好新 一轮的巡演和新专辑的录制&发行,以及最令人期待的——个人音乐厂牌的落地。
Continuing to cross the borders among folk, jazz, classical even rock music with his distinct instrumental and vocal compositions, Su never thought about to stop on the path of music. At the beginning of 2018, he will step out the door to England once again for new inspirations. And also has plans for new album’s recording & releasing, new music tour, and also the most exciting one — launching of his own music label.
