“Matahariku” dan “Rindu” Agnes Monica

 Setiap kali menyimak lagu “Matahariku” yang dinyanyikan oleh Agnes Monica, aku selalu merasa intro lagu ini (nada-nada yang mengalun dari detik 00.00-00.11) tak pernah bisa menyentuh jiwaku. Entah apakah citarasa musikalku yang payah ataukah karena memang intro ini benar-benar tak sesuai dengan seleraku. Sebaliknya di detik 01.44-01.49 selera picisanku justru merasa nada-nada dalam lagu ini lebih pantas menggantikan intro dari detik 00.00-00.11. Padahal nada-nada yang mengisi bagian Bridge (antara detik 00.39-00.43) begitu indah dan tepat menjadi jembatan antara bagian 00.12-00.38. Tentu saja tak mudah menyesuaikan intro (nada-nada awal yang akan mengantarkan masuknya vocal seorang penyanyi) yang sudah ada dengan nada yang ada di sela waktu yang kusebutkan itu. Akan ada perubahan atau penyesuaian komposisi nadanya. Tapi bagi ini memang persoalan yang harus diselesaikan setiap penggubah lagu bukan?


Satu lagi, di lagu “Matahariku” ini aku merasa pengaruh musik tahun 1980-an dan 1990-an begitu kuat. Pancaran kenelangsaan dari nada-nada dalam lagu ini sepertinya kontradiktif dengan karakter vokal Agnes Monica yang tak pernah mau ditundukkan tanpa ada perlawanan dalam dirinya. Inilah kelebihan karakter vokal Agnes Monica yang muncul hampir secara penuh dalam lagu “Rindu” ciptaan Eros Djarot. Kekuatan vokal Agnes yang maksimal saat melengking atau meraung (Whistle Register) tanpa bisa kukendalikan mengingatkanku pada karakter Dewi Diana, anak dari Jupiter dan Latona serta saudari Dewa Apollo. Ia merupakan Dewi Pemburu dengan busur dan anak panah. Keliaran Diana dalam mitologi Yunani tampak jelas ketika ia membunuh kekasihnya sendiri, Fannus.

Carlos Fuentes menulis novel dengan judul “Diana” untuk menggambarkan kepribadian tokoh utama perempuan dalam novel itu yang tersekap pada peran antara seorang aktris, istri Bunuel (sutradara tenar Perancis), dan hubungannya yang dilematis dengan agen intelijen sekaligus kelompok Black Panther di Amerika. Menyimak menyatunya karakter vocal Agnes Monica dengan nada-nada dalam lagu “Rindu” entah kenapa selalu membawa benakku pada novel Carlos Fuentes yang sangat puitik itu. Kalau tidak salah, Octavio Paz juga menggambarkan penyair perempuan Argentina, Alejandra Pizarnik, dengan kembaran Dewi Artemis ini. Puisi-puisi Nokturnal Pizarnik meski sangat kelam namun tak pernah kehilangan kekuatan meradangnya. Dalam lagu, kukira Agnes memiliki potensi yang menarik ini.

Di lagu “Rindu,” vokal syahdu Agnes tak mampu menyembunyikan kesan ketegarannya yang kuat. Vokalnya bisa saja tunduk pada sesuatu yang mempesona, namun di saat bersamaan bisa pula membunuh hal-hal yang mempesona itu dengan lengkingan atau raungannya. Kontradiksi ini terpadu kuat dalam lagu “Rindu.” Agnes berhasil keluar dari versi lama lagu ini yang dulu dinyanyikan oleh Fryda Lucyana dengan memanfaatkan teknik Head Voice a la Mariah Carey. Dengan jeli ia tak mau mengalah pada kenelangsaan yang menggelayut dalam vocal Fryda. Barangkali dalam membawakan lagu “Rindu” ini Agnes belajar dari ‘kekeliruan’nya sendiri ketika membawakan lagu “Matahariku” meski kekeliruan itu tak sepenuhnya dibebankan pada Agnes tanpa menyebut music director “Matahariku” yang tak cermat membaca karakter vocal Agnes.

Kepaduan antara komposisi musik dan lirik dalam lagu Rindu yang dibawakan dengan indah oleh Agnes Monica di telingaku jelas akan menghadirkan imaji yang sangat berlainan dengan kebanyakan pendengar lagu ini. Di luar tafsir semua orang, aku menganggap lagu ini lebih sebagai ungkapan pencarian penuh keputusasaan dari sesuatu yang telah lenyap. Perilaku distopian ini mengharukan karena kekeraskepalaan sang pencari bahwa sesuatu yang telah lenyap itu bisa kembali. Simaklah lirik ini: “Selama aku mencari, selama aku menanti, bayang-bayangmu di batas senja…” Bersama mega-mega yang berarak ia berjalan menembus dinding waktu. Sembari terbaring dan memejamkan mata, ia terus memanggil sesuatu yang telah lenyap dengan harapan yang dicarinya selama ini bisa mendengar dan merasakan kegundahan dan kepiluannya. Ia memutar seluruh kenyataan yang telap lenyap ditelan waktu itu dalam benaknya. Mega-mega yang berarak di atas kepalanya itu menemukan kembaran dalam dirinya berupa jarak yang menyamarkan antara peristiwa masa lampau dengan kenyataan masa kininya.

Konsentrasi aktivitas dan pikiranku akhir-akhir ini membuatku tergoda untuk memandang lagu ini sebagai metafor dari konsepsi kebangsaan yang telah secara sempurna diutarakan dan berusaha diwujudkan oleh seseorang yang dipuja hampir dipelosok negeri ini. Ya, orang yang telah secara memukau memberikan mimpi tentang bangsa yang merdeka lengkap dengan jalan revolusinya. Penghancuran sendi-sendi tanah-air yang telah secara massif dilakukan seorang Jenderal yang dikenal murah senyum sebelum dilanjutkan oleh kapital yang tak memiliki pikiran dan perasaan sebagaimana umumnya manusia membuat kerinduan terhadap sosok dari masa lalu itu sedemikian menyakitkan. Jadi, di bawah bayang-bayang perbatasan senja, sang pencari impian baru itu meraung demi melepaskan diri dari jerat masa lalu yang membuatnya melankolik sekaligus melepaskan diri dari ketidakberdayaan masa kini yang sama mematikannya. Bagaimana cara membangun mimpi baru dari situasi semacam itu?

Sebagai penikmat lagu yang tak punya pengetahuan cukup soal musik, aku manggut-manggut menikmati lagu “Rindu” yang dibawakan Agnes dengan indah. Kelebatan demi kelebatan pembacaan lagu ini tentu meledak di kepalaku. Namun aku tak berhasrat menuliskannya. Biarlah ia hanya menjadi milikku. Lagi pula siapa yang mau membaca ulasan lagu dari orang yang tak punya pengetahuan akademis tentang musik. Dan lagi pula buat apa ada ulasan lagu yang menarik kalau tak ada musisi pop di negeri ini yang ingin menggarap karyanya dengan sepenuh hati, dengan kegilaan memadukan berbagai pengetahuan yang mereka miliki, dan dengan kerendahan untuk berkomunikasi pada orang-orang yang tak berhubungan secara langsung pada dunia musik. Ah, pernyataan terakhir ini memang hanya sinisme yang lahir dari kemarahan pada merajalelanya mediokritas di antara para seniman kita, khususnya di kalangan musisi. Ini status iseng sehabis badan dihajar demam selama beberapa hari.[]
