  • In Irish mythology, Claíomh Solais (also known as The Sword of Light) was a sword that came from Findias and belonged to Nuada Airgeadlámh (Nuada of the Silver Hand), who was leader of the Tuatha Dé Danann and King of Ireland. In legend, the sword glowed with a bright light, hence its name. It was unresistible in battle and had the power to cut his enemies in half. It is one of the Four Treasures of Ireland (the others being the Spear of Lugh, The Dagda's Cauldron and the Stone of Fal).
  • Iluzio is Esperanto for "illusion".

Song Production Information

DJ Yoshitaka

This is the first song between me and S.S.D..
His songs combine "nature" and "human feelings" into a great sound.
So in this collaboration, his personality and strength were set as a priority in making this song.
I hope that the song conveys a sense of floating, both in the sense of nostalgia and that of an actual sense of floating through the sky.

Video Production Information


I made the film showing a white bird flying through the sky.
And I would like to thank my teacher, for giving me valuable advice. In that state of mind, we created a great movie.
