Song Production Information
Out of nearly 400 songs submitted, "Clione" and "starmine" were selected as the winners.
I struggled with a lot of criteria for choosing the music, but in the end I focused on how well the song would capture people's hearts.
These two songs are by far the brightest in that regard, and I'm still glad I chose them because they've received a lot of support after their release.
I think both of these artists still have a lot of potential and I'm looking forward to seeing what they do in the future.
Well, "Clione", I wasted a lot of time when I was mixing it, because I had to spend a lot of time on file compatibility with Macintosh and Windows, but once I got it right, it was all good.
I felt like I sounded like myself as much as I could, but I was relieved that kors k liked it too.
Video Production Information
I mixed the image I got from listening to the song with the image I got from the song title "Clione" and finally created a movie with the theme of "divine beauty".
I was only able to express the link with the rhythm in a large part, but I would be happy if you could see it in color and feel it is "beautiful" for a moment.
However, I was trying to avoid stinky expressions just because of the theme, but it ended up being stinky.
Finally, VJ GYO, I'm so sorry I forced you to take the live action material (T_T).
