Are you ready?
Eric Tsai, a 23-year-old musician, started the band “Fool and Idiot” with other millennials born in the late 90s when he was 18 years old.
Using their talent in creating music, the band channels their unique perspective of the world into their songs. From performing in front of an audience of ten, to hundreds of people, “Fool and Idiot” has always been in the underground music scene until the moment Eric, the vocalist won the second season of the talent show, The Coming One. His name instantly became an overnight sensation in the Chinese music scene, from playing in venues of a few hundred to selling out in large-scale mainstream arenas. Inspired by this life-changing moment, he hopes to bring out the same degree of dramatic changes to impact the world. Despite winning the talent show and the world being affected by the pandemic, he isn’t satisfied with where he is as a musician and continues to progress by discovering and creating breakthroughs in his music career and leading the band into a new direction. With a strong vision for the future, he goes beyond any music limitations and opens a new chapter of Speed Changer.
In this fast-paced era with endless changes in the environment, a large amount of information and new knowledge is constantly flowing. It becomes critical to learn how to acquire this plethora of information. With an undefeated attitude, Eric exposes himself to this new challenge and information as his way of confronting the different changes in the world. He diversifies his approach to achieve self-actualization instead of conforming to the status quo of perfecting only one craft, and he chooses to learn new knowledge and explore different fields. “Nowadays, if you only keep your money in the bank, the value of it will decrease due to inflation. The same applies to knowledge, you must diversify and acquire new knowledge in order to increase your self-worth”.
Under the influence of the pandemic, Eric has spent more time alone than before, “To me, this is more like a warning that I must keep advancing all the time. I shouldn’t only start thinking about progressing when an accident happens.” From personal growth to technological advancements in science, progress of this nature often stems from the act of pursuing excellence. In his pursuit of the perfect form, Porsche Design’s founder Ferdinand Alexander Porsche once said, “Design must be functional, and functionality must be translated into visual aesthetics without any reliance on gimmicks that have to be explained.” Eric’s trusted creative tool, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS, reflects this uncompromising requirement with its carbon fiber cover designed to specifically inherit the distinct shape and pedigree of a Porsche 911 and carry on the sense of momentum of propelling towards a new era.
Eric can easily carry around this lightweight high-quality laptop of only 1.2kg, going from important events to other meetings, to composing music in between. “Now, living in a time where people are so focused on mobility, people often compare laptops to smartphones and tablets. However, similar to a person who is used to turbocharged engines, they won’t be attracted to the distinguished pulse and sound of a NA (naturally aspirated engine) simply after one ride, there is no direct replacement or comparison between the new and the old. In reality, even the best things in life won’t stand the test of time as time and trends gradually go by, so what I truly need is a tool I can trust and depend on.”
“Changing doesn’t mean you’ve abandoned your initial mission, it is simply the outcome of a gradual process.” In 2020, the year of change, Eric has more time to reflect on himself, realizing that it is a short-sighted response on his behalf to start only self-evaluating and improving when a disaster like the current pandemic strikes. Looking back at the choices he made, he could only rely on his limited judgment to make the most reasonable decision based on the given circumstances. “I am very open to new changes as every situation has its own set of problems, so naturally, we end up encountering different scenarios each time.”
Eric continued to move forward with no hesitation, “I want to try singing songs that have more groove and rhythm from different genres, such as Soul and R&B.” He hopes to improve on his singing skills and develop the intuition in perfecting his songwriting. With the help of Intel® Evo™ verified Porsche Design Acer Book RS equipped with the latest 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and Intel® Iris® Xe Graphic, he can capture the spur of inspiration as it comes and perfect his craft instantly.
Whether he is on the road heading to the recording studio, an event, or at the backstage area, Porsche Design Acer Book RS can immediately respond and wake up from sleep mode causing no delay to Eric’s creative process. With an extensive 17-hour battery life, Eric is not limited by time or space and can continue his journey of recording creative and musical inspirations anywhere, anytime. He needs to constantly keep up to date with his friends from around the world in real-time to compose and collaborate, especially during the pandemic era.
Through the Porsche Design Acer Book RS’s compatibility with Wi-Fi 6, he can host a stable video chat with his work partners and even broadcast high-quality live videos to his sinternational fans through the high-quality sound amplifier and microphone with excellent connection. As he continues to fine-tune his skills and experience over time, Eric will, without doubt, be able to compose a variety of music styles very soon and set the pace for a new era.
No matter how the environment and the world will change, the only way to keep moving forward and face the unexpected is to continue to enrich yourself and prepare for the future. And as the SPEED Changer, Eric Tsai will keep influencing the world through his music.
