It seems like there's an awful lot of techno, and my song ".59" is kind of a response to this. I guess it's in the nature of IIDX. It's pretty ha~rd. I wonder if I'm the only one on the staff that can do it. The entire history of German music from Bach to German trance is all somehow represented in this song! The historic circumstances and occasional chaos of the fusion of East and West is there too! (Yeah, right.) By the way, the whole staff was chatting about the name of the song. Here's VJ GYO to tell you the meaning behind .59!

".59". Have you all figured out how to pronounce it? It's not "point five nine", but "tengoku", the word for heaven. The dot is "ten", five is "go", and nine is pronounced "ku" this time. We ended up using a generic video for this song, but GOLI was able to come up with a key animation to appear when players press the keys on the keyboard, working with his usual high-energy spirit in a limited time. The song title may not be obvious as "Tengoku" or "Heaven" to everyone; the song and animation don't associate themselves directly with the idea. It's not so much praise for the people that have gotten there, but a message of relief for those that are suffering along the way ...
