Song Production Information
This song is filled with thoughts about my wrecked car, the Gloria Gran Turismo Y31.
Everyone, be careful not to cut the suspension too much. It can be placed in a multi-story carpark, so keep the minimum ground clearance, and slowly race the rose pear-colored roaring breakthrough!
Now I've got an Aristo with 18-inch wheels and 60 loans. Now you know what the next song is?
I recently heard from a friend that many people think I'm nagureo but, tch, tch, that's wrong.
I'm a street racer, and he's a dogsbody.
I don't know music, so I have him input images into a computer.
※ Y31... Nissan's luxury car, the Cedric Gloria, was manufactured in 1987, and targeted at middle-aged customers. With a sporty tune, attached front and rear spoilers, and a manual shift model, it was a massive hit.
Video Production Information
If you're supposed to get it, you probably already do.
The next song will be Y31.
tiger, the development from your announcement around a year ago has arrived!
This song, Y31, is the definitive culmination of every R series song released in IIDX, such as R3, R5, and R10K!
Anyways, it's very cool and groovy, but if you follow the development of the song with your ears open... Isn't there one word to summarize this?
When I finished listening and reflected on it,
- I couldn't remember what happened
- I could recall many fragmented memories
- But, I couldn't arrange them in chronological order
- Was the development thought out as expected?
- But I didn't have any doubts when I was listening to it, doesn't it feel like waking up from a dream?
I thought about recreating these feelings.
If I calm myself down a bit more and listen to it again (unlike dreams, you can repeat the same experiences),
- There are clear and different conditions, with each having some extreme images
- They have intricate development like opposing forms
- When viewed as a whole, it is a cycle
Then I wanted to express these thoughts.
- The state of the entire universe, time and space (→various live-action images)
- Concepts and symbols represented in sections (→Tora Yamato incarnated as five people)
... I began production of this movie with a worldview that I had seen or heard somewhere before.
However, such story disappeared while making it, so I only made it with the groove in the end.
Because I overthought it in the beginning, I created one material and then stood still for a while until the end, and I remember that it was the most mentally exhausting part of the production.
But, as usual, it doesn't meet tiger's thoughts (read his comment above)~ (tears).
I received a question in the Q&A corner, so I'll write a bit about Tora Yamato (someone called him the roaring angel version) who has been split into five people.
|Green Tora Yamato||Green Tree||Jade Tiger|
|Red Tora Yamato||Red Fire||Carnelian Tiger|
|Yellow Tora Yamato||Yellow Gold||Gold Tiger|
|Black Tora Yamato||Dark Soil||Obsidian Tiger|
|Blue Tora Yamato||Blue Water||Sapphire Tiger|
I gave them appropriate names etc., but I wanted a single typo joke.
As a side note, Tora Yamato's pose was not appropriate, so she's doing "3" and "1" with both hands... But none of the staff noticed.
Thank you very much to those who pointed out that the stroke order of "wa" (和) was "written in semi-cursive script".
I posted the email on the Q&A page (appended to VOL.1's answer column).
