Song Production Information
The loss of the kraken brought the anger of the king, which in turn led to his imprisonment. Although he made wings with wax and feathers, flying through the sky and succeeding in escaping, Icarus wished to fly higher. For a while, he was able to fly where he wanted. However, the wings, which were made of wax, dissolved with the heat of the sun, and he fell and died.
I produced a song characteristic with the story, with BPM changes, a cyber sound, and a radio voiceover reminiscent of fighter pilots in this song production. Honestly, I feel that this is a very difficult song to pass...
Video Production Information
Because I have trouble drawing mechanical things, I had difficulty starting this project. However, I decided to make an image that was strong, yet delicate. The main body of Icarus, which pulls you in with the tune, was the last thing that I produced.
The feathers scattering, and the way they fell... I was thinking how such a light looking aircraft could fly.
