Song Production Information


I'm sanodg/Electromagnetic Sano.

This is my third appearance in the series, and the theme was pomp and excitement, so I decided to make a song that felt like a fastball.

I have a penchant for playing chords in my songs. When I play a synthesizer at a music store, I sometimes lose myself in the music and ignore everything else, such as playing a trance song, but I notice that I get more into the music when I play a chord.
Particularly, I like the 7th or 9th chords for the right hand and the base chord for the left hand.

So, when I first made this song, I thought about that feeling, and decided to make this song based on these chords and that feeling of unconsciousness. But, after writing the song, I thought "Oh, I forgot to write in a melody!" So I had to squeeze in a melody for this song, without adding in any vocals.

Incidentally, if you are wondering why, the basis for this song was from chords from an old song called "TIME TO TIME". From this old song, there is a line in it, "TIME TO TIME TO TIME" that I like very much.
If I have a chance, I would like to create an extended version of this song.

Thank you!
