Song Production Information

SLAKE

With this song I was aiming for the dark disco sound that vividly shows the Paris underground. The typical images most people associate with disco is afros and "disco fever", but isn't there a darker side of swirling desires? I don't really know myself ... *g* The breaks are kind of a rock-ish point to the song, but think of it as "fever". After all, isn't disco something that gets you in the fever?

Video Production Information

F-FLY

This is the very first thing I worked on for the RED production. Since I like SLAKE's songs, I was able to start work right away without too much trouble.

Don't you get the feeling of a suspicious night scene as your first impression? I had the image in mind of a neon-lit nighttime environment in mind, so I went around Hong Kong taking lots of pictures.

... wait!
He said "Paris at night", didn't he? Sorry~
It looks like I got the night part right, at least ... oh well.

Anyway ...
I didn't go to Hong Kong to take pictures because of this song. I happened to be travelling shortly before we began work, and when I came back and listened to this song, I thought, "hey, that's it!" But it looks like I was wrong ...

After that, I bled a Chinese red over the photographs, and repeated the word "TEXTURE" (as in, a graphical pattern) to create this movie.

You get great pictures from Hong Kong no matter what scenery you're in, so it's a treasure trove of photographic material. The only bad thing was probably that I didn't get to meet Jackie ... (I wonder if he's in Hollywood?)
