Song Production Information
If you are familiar with the NM-produced dance pop song HIGHER, CHIYOKO, who is also known as Sunny, is featured on this trance track. It's titled "Colors", which is the theme of 6th style, but I actually had the color blue in mind when I created it. The two synths I often use to create trance music are both a beautiful blue color, and this track is an extension of that image.
It is strange to say it myself, but perhaps the songs I make contain a blue image, don't they? It's not a deep blue, but a pale blue, like floating in the sky....
YUZ, who created the movie without any special meetings, has a good understanding of my musicality, and caused me to cry a little when I saw this movie once production finished. I hope you will enjoy it as complex art combined with visuals...... that was self-praised.
Video Production Information
I didn't plan to make the video at all, but before I knew it, I became in charge of it...
Since players can't view the center of the screen and appreciate it while playing moderately dense notecharts, I thought about various ways to make it so they could enjoy the alternating colors and feel the large moving links.
The entire process was difficult until I had a clear image of the artwork.
