Song Production Information
The trance tracks in IIDX so far have been comparatively hard and rough, but there's more to trance than just that. I've tried to bring out more of the beautiful, gentler nature of trance with this track, REINCARNATION. You should have a trance to go along with your trance music, eh?
This is the first time VJ GYO has done a video for one of my songs like this; it surprised even me. (Well, we did have that one live-action video...) Does this show us TRAN's former life!?
Video Production Information
TRAN has become very popular among IIDX fans. Thank you all. It makes me happier than I can say! I hope you'll all continue to like her from now on. Now, when we heard that dj TAKA was going to do a trance song, we thought it would be nice if TRAN could benefit from being paired with a long-expected TAKA trance piece, so I decided right away that I should make a TRAN video for the song. There's also a dramatic development within the beauty of this song, which is rather characteristic of suddenly being dropped into something like a medieval fantasy world. It's not an out-of-body experience or a time slip, but reincarnation. I said I wanted to do a video with that theme, and got the approval, so that also became the name of the song. In this video an angel(-like) TRAN fights a devil(-like being) in her former life. I realized I wouldn't have time to put more than that into the video, and you'll notice that the world of her former life doesn't really look anything like the world she's in after reincarnation. Maybe I should have left something out for consistency's sake.
