Song Connections / Remixes
- 2002's video features Tora Yamato.
Song Production Information
From this song, you will feel tiger YAMATO's history flash before your eyes.
From the way the sounds are layered and the rhythms are grouped, it has a very nice composition.
It seems that the consecutive 8-bar strings in the intro and ending are surprisingly difficult to play.
From the main phrase orchestra hits to the scratching in the middle of the song, it should be like a IIDX notechart in every aspect.
If you always feel the tempo and play, getting a FULL COMBO is not a dream.
Video Production Information
In the NEW SONGS INTRODUCTION of "Y31", from the previous work, do you remember tiger's question, "Now you know what the next song is?"?
The answer was "2002". That was a miss.
(I don't think anyone got it right...)
By the way, when saying "2002", the first thing that came to mind is the Western calendar. It's this year.... So I tried to create a movie a "calendar" theme.
(Oh, there is a car with the name "2002"! I just noticed it now. Do you understand? But I don't think it matters...)
And before you ask me the song title, the images that came to mind when I listened to the song were "dark" and "festival". It was incorporated with these.
("Dark" and "festival" seem like keywords which symbolize Japan this year...)
Also, the unofficial mascot character, Tora Yamato, who also first debuted in "R10K" (as an alter ego of the main body?), appears in this original coloring (in the above illustration).
And the fifth "roaring angel" alter ego in "Y31" also continues to appear.
By the way, each roaring angel is respectively named Green Tree, Red Fire, Yellow Gold, Dark Soil, and Blue Water, with these names referencing the five elements of ancient Chinese philosophy, but the five elements also applies to the "calendar" as the "Five Seasons"!
(Water=Spring, Fire=Summer, Gold=Fall, Soil=Midsummer, Water=Winter)
It remains a mystery if tiger YAMATO knew about this (he didn't have the chance to comment this time), but anyways, I'm sure that there are various rumors about this song and its title, which contains various messages.
