Song Production Information

Toshiyuki Kakuta aka L.E.D. LIGHT

For this song, I started with the interpretation that modern trance and dance music is rooted in ethnic music, then conversely challenged myself to create a trance remix of ethnic music with a modern interpretation. As a result, what I completed was "Oceanian Tribal Trance" (I came up with the genre name on my own!), a trance track that features the didgeridoo, a folk instrument from the Aboriginal people native to Australia.

This musical instrument, the didgeridoo, is kind of like a large recorder that looks like a long, thin, hollowed-out tree, but how it's made is really unique! You stick a long, thin piece of wood through the top of a termite nest and wait. The termites then eat their way through the wood, and when it's hollowed out, it's complete! That's what they told me. That's apparently why the sounds it makes can vary wildly, depending on how the termites feel.

I was able to enlist the help of didgeridoo player Goro during the recording of this song. Goro is like a domestic authority on the didgeridoo, and as a musician has a lot of experience playing it in songs. Being my first time collaborating with such an influential figure, I initially went into the recording with a slight bit of nervousness, but Goro was very kind-hearted and gladly accomodated even my most unreasonable requests.

According to what Goro told me, he said that recently he's had a lot of opportunities to perform in dance music collaborations, and so the recording turned out very smoothly for me as well.

After the recording however, one of my coworkers happened to own a didgeridoo, so I borrowed it from them and tried playing it myself, and I found out that the instrument requires quite a lot of stamina. So much so, that not even five minutes after starting to play it, I ran out of breath, and when I tried to stand up, I got dizzy. I felt really bad about casually asking Goro to play long notes without having known how hard it is.

By the way, I happened to think about this when I was creating songs for GOTTAMIX2, but I can't hide the fact that I still haven't been outside of Japan even once. Man, I want to travel abroad after GOTTAMIX2 is done. Togo-chef, can I get a one-month break?

"Let me take a break first!" ... Ah, I see, darn. (Staring off into the distance)

Until next time, have a happy "Beat Play Life"!

Video Production Information


Togo-chef and KAGE suggested we choose three songs from the popular PlayStation game beatmania GOTTAMIX 2 to use for the 4th style recording process to tie the two together. This song is one of the three: "Infinite Prayer", the latest work from the man who kicked up the trance sensation in IIDX substream with THE EARTH LIGHT, L.E.D.LIGHT. "A trance remix interpreting ethnic music in modern styles." The trance sensation created by tapping into the rhythms of the natural world is incredible! It's somehow warm and nostalgic. I just can't put my appreciation for L.E.D.'s skill into words. By the way, it was a bit late in the process when dj TAKA told me that I should have fun making visuals for L.E.D.LIGHT-san's work ... My hands were full with just the new songs for 4th style. L.E.D.LIGHT, everyone, I'm sorry. Somehow, I'll redeem myself another time.
