Song Production Information
This song is from KEYBOARD MANIA 3rd MIX. It has been about a year since I hurriedly produced this song to repay YUZ, who always helped me since substream about 3 years ago, and provided IIDX with many famous movies and scenes. Speaking of keyboards, my main adoration is for the piano! So that means I decided to make a trance track fully featuring the piano.
I have memories about thinking of various piano phrases that would resonate on the heart, so the essence of repetitive trance doesn't become monotonous. It already feels nostalgic. I had already continued with "Frozen Ray", but due to limitations, some parts which weren't included, so please listen to it.
Video Production Information
(The movie) has considerably changed from KEYBOARDMANIA, but rather than refining it, I completed it in such a form based on changes in sound balance.
