Song Production Information
1989 must be a shocking year for Osamu Kubota, who speaks 8 languages.
I feel that such thoughts are expressed in the song through various scenes directed like a story.
On another note, this time I was able to privately listen to Osamu play the piano from a close distance in a long while.
The gorgeous melodies and chords produced by his fingertips were so beautiful that even a man could be charmed by them.
Video Production Information
A new horizon has been opened by Osamu Kubota, this rock opera is unique among the many genres included in IIDX and gives the most dramatic impression.
"1989" is the sequel of "sanctus", which was stated to be the most controversial among those recorded for 4th style.
1989 was a shocking year. The reason for this is a global event forever remembered in history textbooks as "the fall of the Berlin Wall".
Once again, if you think back to this event and its history and forget some aspects, playing this song will allow you to form your own interpretation of this song in a way that more closely resembles the composer's thoughts.
