Song Production Information
Long before we had received this work from an acquaintance of the musician, Osamu Kubota had already proven himself as a very skilled musician. Even though the length and experience of his career far outweighs that of mine, we've still managed to become close friends.
His music production primarily involves a lot of orchestra and jazz taste, and he's become quite famous, acting as a musical director for a certain famous TV drama and other such things.
Now, Kubota's music has cultivated a completely new, fresh genre in beatmania. It's very unique in its essence, much more than what I asked from him. With that, this sole song became a symbol of the direction of 3rd style.
Isn't it such a wonderful piece of music? The harpsichord, classical piano, church organ and so on, all of the elements give off a very baroque feeling. Everyone, please enjoy this magnificent fusion of styles to your heart's content.
