Song Production Information
This song explores the ideas of the abstract, the ideal, the imaginary. I wanted to capture the spirit of a rock performance without using just conventional rock instruments, so I used my favorite TB-303 to do this. Don't get swept up in the changes in the rhythms.
Video Production Information
People who consider the complexities of everyday life are rewarded with the power to understand the true natures of these problems. People who don't think about anything are given the chance to consider the world reflected around them.
I believe this song has that sort of effect on people.
I kept wandering about, so to speak, trying to capture such a phenomenon in a way that fit the music, and in the end I decided the best way to do that would be a depiction kind of like the water used in liquid medicines.
