a tribute to Aceh and Sumut

Jumat, 4 February 2005
Kejutan MLTR untuk Korban TsunamiJakarta -- Waktu menunjukkan pukul 20.30 WIB, ketika lampu di Stadion Tennis Indoor, Senayan, tiba-tiba padam. Bersamaan dengan itu, dari bawah panggung seberkas sinar dan asap membubung. Seketika itu juga penonton yang telah datang sejak sore berteriak histeris. Sejurus kemudian, lampu di atas panggung kembali menyala. Sontak, entakan musik terdengar dari sound system berkekuatan puluhan ribu watt dan mengguncang ruangan berkapasitas 3.000 orang tersebut. Tanpa sapaan kepada penonton, Michael Learns to Rock langsung memulai konsernya di Jakarta pada Rabu (2/2). Pertunjukannya kali ini berbeda dengan delapan tahun lalu, ketika grup yang mengusung aliran Scandinavian glow dan pop ini menggoyang Jakarta. Kedatangan grup musik asal Denmark ke Indonesia kali ini untuk menunjukkan kepedulian mereka kepada korban gempa dan tsunami di Aceh dan Sumatera Utara. Mereka menyisihkan Rp 50 ribu dari setiap tiket yang terjual untuk para korban tsunami. Selain Jakarta, Michael Learns to Rock juga menggelar konser di Bandung, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, dan Bali. Grup musik yang beranggotakan Jascha Ritcher (vokalis sekaligus pemain keyboard), Kåre Wanscher (drummer), dan Mikkel Lentz (gitaris) membuka konser dengan salah satu hit-nya yang berjudul Without Your Love. Meski lagu itu cukup bersemangat, penonton yang rata-rata berusia di atas 20 tahun dan pekerja kantoran itu tetap terpaku diam. Mereka tampaknya tidak atau belum akrab dengan hit dari album terakhir grup tersebut. Melihat kurangnya tanggapan dari penonton, saat lagu pertama usai, Jascha mencoba menarik perhatian penonton dengan kalimat standar, "Halo, Jakarta," katanya. Penonton membalas dengan teriakan kecil. Saat lagu kedua dibawakan, How Many Hours--diambil dari album ketiga Played on Papper--sebagian penonton mulai ikut bernyanyi. Wajar, album itu terjual lebih dari 1,2 juta kopi di seluruh dunia dan meraih triple platinum di Indonesia. Sayangnya, momen ini tidak dipertahankan oleh Jascha, Kare, dan Mikkel. Empat lagu setelah itu, yakni Salvation, Love Will Never Die, Final Destination, dan I Still Carry On, tak membuat penonton yang berjumlah 1.500 orang itu larut dalam alunan musik. Praktis, selama hampir setengah jam mereka kembali terpaku. Melihat sikap dingin penonton, sang vokalis mencoba mencairkan kebekuan. Memasuki lagu ketujuh, Jascha berkomunikasi, "Lagu berikutnya bercerita tentang mobil, dan kami bawakan untuk seluruh mobil di Jakarta." Penonton seketika ngeh dan klik. Mereka teringat lirik MLTR yang cukup kondang: I am not an actor, I am not a star, and I don't even have my own car. Seperti terbangun dari tidur, penonton langsung bergairah menyambut nada-nada awal lagu berjudul The Actor yang keluar dari keyboard Jascha. Mereka berteriak, sebagian lagi bertepuk tangan. Hit dari album pertama yang melambungkan nama Michael Learns to Rock itu berhasil menyihir penonton. Gedung tempat olahraga itu seolah berubah menjadi sebuah ruangan karaoke, dengan panggung berukuran 16 x 10 meter menjadi layarnya. Hampir semua penonton ikut bernyanyi, dan karenanya volumenya mengalahkan pemilik panggung malam itu. Seperti tak mau kalah dengan aksi penonton, Jascha membalas. Ia berhenti bernyanyi, lalu berjalan menyusuri panggung seraya mengayun-ayunkan tangannya sebagai tanda kepada penonton untuk mengajak mereka terus bernyanyi. Seperti kurang puas dengan aksinya, ia pun menuruni tangga panggung dan mendekati penggemar beratnya yang berdiri di kelas festival paling depan. Penonton kembali menjerit. Jeritan bertambah histeris ketika vokalis yang lahir pada 1963 itu berusaha memberikan mikrofonnya kepada salah seorang penonton. Seorang laki-laki yang berada di ujung kanan panggung beruntung. Tak menyia-nyiakan kesempatan, ia menyanyikan ref The Actor--lagu yang menjadi hit pada 1991. Walau suaranya pas-pasan, laki-laki tadi tampak menghayati peran barunya tersebut. Itu tergambar jelas dari wajahnya yang muncul di dua big screen di sisi kiri dan kanan panggung. Setelah The Actor, giliran lagu Strange Foreign Beauty--dari album berjudul sama yang keluar pada 1999--dilantunkan. Karena terkuras energinya pada The Actor, sebagian penonton memilih diam untuk menikmati lagu yang beralunan lembut itu. Ketika lagu usai, panggung mendadak gelap. Kare (drummer) dan Mikkel (gitaris) serta pemain bas tambahan meninggalkan panggung. Hanya ada Jascha di panggung. Lampu menyorot sang vokalis itu, sekelilingnya gelap. Ia berkata kepada penonton, lagu berikutnya khusus didedikasikan untuk para korban tsunami. Suasana syahdu menyelimuti dua lagu yang ia nyanyikan seorang diri, Naked Liked the Moon dan Out of the Blue. Seperti konser-konser band yang lain, Michael Learns to Rock tidak ingin tampil antiklimaks. Sesaat setelah lagu Someday, para personel pamit, menandakan pertunjukan telah berakhir. Semua lampu dipadamkan. Tapi penonton tahu konser ini belum benar-benar usai. Bahkan penonton asal Denmark yang ada di tribun berkata lantang, "It's not over." Kompak penonton pun berseru, "We want more.... We want more...." Benar saja, Jascha cs kembali naik panggung. Dalam performa tambahan, band yang akan mengeluarkan album baru pada 9 Februari mendatang ini tampil mengejutkan. "Now I would like introduce you. Michael Learns to Disco," kata Jascha. Mereka melantunkan lagu milik AHA yang berjudul Take on Me. Penonton bergoyang. Suasana semakin panas ketika lagu Jump milik Van Halen dibawakan. Semua penonton yang berada di kelas festival ikut loncat-loncat. Sepertinya MLTR ingin membuktikan selama 14 tahun perjalanan kariernya, mereka sudah tidak lagi belajar membawakan musik rock. Sayatan gitar Mikkel Lentz tidak kalah dengan Eddie Van Halen. Begitu juga pukulan drum Kare Wanscher layaknya Alex Van Halen. Penampilan Michael Learns to Rock dalam dua lagu ini benar-benar memukau. Setelah berhasil membakar gairah penonton, Michael Learns to Rock menutup konsernya dengan sebuah lagu manis, Thats Why (You Go Away). Tak terasa waktu sudah menunjukkan pukul 22.30 WIB. Selama hampir dua jam membawakan 22 lagu, MLTR tampil maksimal dan menghibur. Lighting dan sound konser ini cukup bagus. Bahkan ketika sudah benar-benar usai, perlu lima menit untuk penonton sadar bahwa Michael Learns to Rock sudah turun panggung.

About Kåre

Mikkel Lentz


About Mikkel
Mikkel was chosen as guitarist in MLTR after Jascha and Kaare saw him perform with the rock group,The Rocking Studs back in 1987. Apart from the noise of The Studs, Mikkel was mainly into ambient music, which he composed and recorded on his tiny 4 track studio.
Mikkel started as "just being guitarist in MLTR but as a producer became a driving force in the recordings of "Played on Pepper" as well as "Nothing to Lose".
Apart from the work with MLTR Mikkel has ventured into writing filmscores as well as composing music for several tv documentaries. He produced the cd, "Innocence" with Ricky Julian in the late 90ties, as well as several underground bands, such as "Kewpie Dolls" and "Lenny Davies and NYC Lovers".

Jascha Richter


About Jascha
Michael Learns To Rock is definitely one of the biggest Danish successes on the music scene, with more than 9 million albums sold world wide since their debut album in 1991.
The creative force of the band is Jascha Richter who wrote all of MLTR songs – mostly on his own. The number of hits is long with pearls like: The Actor, Sleeping Child, That’s Why (You Go Away) and Someday.
Jascha’s songwriting is still focused on high quality pop songs with great melodies inspired of artists like; Supertramp, 10CC, Elton John and The Bee Gees.
After 6 albums with MLTR, Jascha has now released a solo album ”Where I Belong”. The album includes some of Jascha’s strongest songs written to date. The ballad ”My Saviour” is co-written with Australian songwriter Pam Reswick who co-wrote Tina Arena’s worldwide hit ”Chains” in 1995. You will recognize the style from MLTR with Jascha’s significant voice and vocal arrangements. Jascha is also the main producer of the album in co-operation with a number of talented producers and songwriters like Johan Stentorp, Peter Wallevik, Johan Bejerholm and Mogens Binderup.
Interestingly enough, the sound of the album is more guitar oriented than you would expect from Jascha Richter as he mostly writes his songs on the piano and is the keyboard player on stage.
