Song Production Information
Keeping with the theme of two time periods for PENDUAL, this song represents the future phase of the game.
I wanted to focus on a solid cyber-style beat.
Initially, when I was producing this song, I assumed that there would be a vocalist involved.
But then Nekomata Master made chrono diver -fragment- before I had finished, with a vocalist.
So, instead, I decided to remake the song, making sure to emphasize the contrast but still maintaining a link between NORNIR and the other one.
Video Production Information
L.E.D.'s song is the Future phase song NORNIR.
The sound is like light scattering about. It builds up and scatters itself throughout.
This speedy song is a great representation of the "future".
After you play it once, the impact this song has on you will remain.
Thinking of the Nornir, I represented the 3 phases of time with the three Umegiri sisters, whose ages represent the 3 steps of time.
Ameto represents the past that is closed.
Hihumi represents the present that is currently being shaped.
Iroha represents the future that represents hope.
It is all sequential.
By the way, if you have a combo break in the song, you will see the title CHRONO DIVER.
Only the letter D is highlighted red.
I wanted to imply that you did something to endanger the future every time you see this.
