Song Production Information
About six months ago I found myself in a synth shop in Shibuya. There were a lot of Andromeda synths on display there, and if you would play with the display models, you could feel this amazing sound resounding in your stomach. At that moment, I was completely taken with the idea that this synth existed solely for my benefit. I consulted my wallet and left the store empty-handed, but on an impulse turned right back around and bought the synth. I was so happy that I wanted to make a song using just that one synth, and this song, ANDROMEDA, is the result. In fact, everything but the hi-hat sounds are from the Andromeda. So, this is almost kind of like an Andromeda demo song *g*
It has this cool cybernetic sort of feel to it. I hope you'll all play it loud and let the Andromeda sound resound deep within your stomach♪
Video Production Information
Development movie [EPISODE 2] -investigate-
Narrowly escaping, the terminal dives into the enemy security area, searching for the core. Will it be able to find it?
I did my best to create a video with lots of tension.
