Song Production Information

beatmania IIDX

dj TAKA

This track always makes me feel some sort of maddening, incredibly overwhelming energy. Only a song where the artist poured his all into production can give listeners that sort of experience. To say it frankly, I didn't really appreciate this song that much when I first heard it, but the first time I heard it come from the machine, it sent shivers down my spine. It's kind of hard on 7KEYS, but I hope you'll practice it on LIGHT7 so you can pass it some time.

Video Production Information

VJ GYO

era. Ages, epochs. The expression of the passing of ages is what first started the spell. That is, I felt history spreading itself out from one point to another, following a catalog of "eras" in succession. But when I listened again, I felt it was more of a song that expressed the splendour of time and space that people always feel. In the end, I decided to visually symbolize the various sounds and phrases that occur throughout the song. I wasn't really pleased with certain elements of the video, but I was relieved to hear TaQ's response to it. He had told me in an email earlier that he really liked blue, so he seemed pleased with the fact that I used it as the base color throughout the video. He also seemed pleased with things like the passages where the woman was falling (doesn't she look like a sculpture filled with water?).
