Smooth Vibes

  Taking Chords, tempos (changing so many times), and sometimes top notes. They were started after recording the song from Youtube to my DAW.

  If I can touch the core of the song, I may write good arrangement. But if not…? 🙂 Still working in the flow of the music. Keep her steady!

Ice lake studio

  Seeing Mr.Coffee Cup’s studio life. You are a legend of music, I thank for your great Masterpieces. It would be same opinion of composers and musicians all over the world.

  You are really perfect, then I’d like to suspect possibility of your weak point. 🙂 I enjoyed Christmas live videos at your home studio, they are some vocal numbers playing with your family and kind musicians.
  But in one number, vocal microphone didn’t have a compressor. Then I thought — Mr.CC may have not enough experiences for vocal numbers especially POP song. Oh, it is too bad. I thought about wishing you for new challenge for POPs.

  But I was absolutely wrong. You posted a perfect vocal tune with your premier singer. It is awesome one, you are also GURU of POP music.
  OK, wait. But probably you are not familiar with Country music, right? 🙂

  I wish you make wonderful music also from now on. Your studio is really great. Thanks for reading.

Best regards.

(Just like) Starting over?

  Frankly speaking, I have to write many songs. It’s my destiny (oh Carol).
  2 years ago, my purpose was 100 songs. 1 year ago, it was 300 songs. And now… over a thousand songs! Wow. But it is a true from deep inside of my heart.

  Therefore, I always welcome a good idea of English lyrics. Please send it anytime you like. Don’t hurry for it, take enough time for making a music.
 (I am running some projects anyway, It may take some time to reply)

  If you need to make music, please contact me. Let’s make a great music which becomes a topic of word of mouth.

Make a period

Dear Sirs,

  Now it is the time to close for the English song project. I would like to move on to a new project. We would meet again, if we have a chance in the future.
  Thank you very much for your time.
  Best regards.

Other practical points

  To make a song with an oversea lyricist, we have to decide how we proceed the work practically.

  After agreeing a main concept (idea), it starts like this:

(1) A lyricist writes lyrics at first, then a composer makes a whole music.

(2) A composer makes a music (melody) at first, then a lyricist writes lyrics. After that, a composer(arranger) makes a whole music.

  In Japanese music producting scenes, (2) is popular method. I heard it is same in USA, too.

  However, (2) gives much working to a lyricist. And this time, lyrics is very important. Therefore, we may take (1) method.
(I know rhyme is very difficult to make, Japanese lyrics has no rhyme except rap etc)

  Probably, after a lyricist makes the first verse, a composer should receive it and make a music for the moment. Then we can share the image and feeling of the song.

  And frankly speaking, I must remember a biggest matter of the project — it is a reward. Can I pay enough reward for the world-famous lyricist? Oh, I should know the answer. 🙂

  Like this, there are many critical points in the project. If we take a human vocalist, it costs too. (and there is a difficulty of singing management, if she(he) is a native speaker. Really can she(he) take a best singing for a great lyrics? Would you have a time for advice to a singer?)

  This is a difficult project to make succeed after all. Should we continue it? I would like to ask the sirs to think about it carefully with enough time.

Thinking about a song project

  I’m always ready to compose. But to start new project with great lyricists, we have to think about how we start and proceed this creative project(s).

  Probably it is best way for us to set a main concept of the song at first.

1) I would like to make a song for persons in front of the net. They may be lonely or happy. There are many people.

2) A.C.Clarke showed us “One World” connecting with world network in his book “How the World Was One”. However, he is really optimist, he didn’t see the dark side of the One World.
  Great Cyberpunk authors prophesied it correctly, didn’t they? 🙂

3) Computer network may break the world if the one uses it with evil mind. But I’d like to believe honest mind of the people. It would help us after all.

4) With these warm mind and idea, I would like to make a fantastic new song in this world-wide project. Any Questions? 🙂

  We have to decide many things to proceed the project, but it should be done later.

  And I am really sorry — I got some phrases and a melody already. Wao. How can I stop it?

  This is first idea, It is a ballad. I can imagine many patterns of arrangement. (like ’70 Rock, Carpenters-Pops, Orchestral, Smooth Jazz contemporary, RnB or Progressive Rock? Santana, Doobie Brothers?)

(verse 1)
When I put out (the) words to electric grid
Through thousand of the black little chips,
They may reach to you instead
Could you receive raps?

(verse 2 — no idea)

(chorus)
I’m standing in the rain,
you’re smiling on a whelp

  I know this is terrible lyrics, and rhyme is not good. It is too difficult to make it for one Japanese with poor English! This is simply a base idea.

  And more practical ideas,

5) How do you think about singing this song by a Vocaloid? It can sing English song, of course. Do Cyberpunks like it?

6) Finally, it would be good idea to release this song as “Freemium”, I think. Many people do listen it. Freely copy, but we have copyrights.

  Today, this is all. Have a good weekend, sirs.

Realworld Influencers

 Influencer is not only in cyberspace but also in real world. I have seen some great RW-Influencers in the net.
 They seem to be modest and shy. It is a little surprise for me, because they have really big power of intelligence. But, it may be one of truth of the world, therefore they give many good influence to the people.
 OK, I studied it.

 Meanwhile, I am ready to compose, sir. If you give me a word through e-mail, I am super very glad and happy. It is a first process to make good music with you. It always needs a special purpose to make music. A request from you give a huge influence to me. Please remember for it, you are a super influencer.

 Believing bright future of the world.

Throw a stone into a river

  After starting my music production work, I become to believe “EN” of human world. “EN” means a collaboration of one person with other one, meeting and relation.
  If we have a good “EN”, something a special matter appears. But we have no “EN”, nothing happens, only passing by.
  Both of them are equal, not special, just natural. Life goes on like a river.

  If you hope to change of this flow, you should throw a stone into a river. Then “EN” will turn to good way.
  Every great author knows the importance of words, isn’t it? 🙂 Just drop words, “I need your music”, then one composer would be delighted. It is needed to make a good music. Please try to do it. You are a special person, have a huge influence, please remember it.

  Dreaming a good collaboration with you.

メルカリ

……あっ違うメリクリだ。死語もキマって掴みはオッケーだぜ。

 ところで遅ればせながらお花ジャケットの新作、拝聴させて頂きました。とてもパーソナルな世界が感じられるアルバムで、メジャーの、たくさんのスタッフが関わった、いかにも「プロダクション(製造/製品)」な作品からは対極にあるような、アーティストさんの息遣いが聞こえる盤。手工芸感のあるアルバムと申しましょうか、それだけ表現していることが近くに感じられて、これは興味深かったです。
 バラードが中心なので、といっても大編成のアレンジではなく、ピアノ主体のバッキングの曲も幾つかあったりして、そこはよりパーソナルな感じを高める結果になっているように思えます。弦や木管は生なのですねー、あれーこのお名前はどっかで見たなーとか(w)。
 名前といえば、ギターはゲストプレイヤーを迎えていますが、The Alan Parsons Projectの方とか、Duran Duranと演っていた方とか、ブリティッシュ系のギタリストが非常に良いプレイをしてますねー。よくこんな上手い人見つけたなと(w)、そこも感心しました。
 ロビーの曲、新編曲も面白い。アレンジの妙が感じられます。
 ベストトラックは、たぶんアルバムの趣旨からは一番外れているんでしょうが、自分はピンクとブルーの曲でした。いいですねー、これは’80年代ロック。メロもキャッチーだし、普段はこういう曲を歌ってないところも良い。このギターは、ハードロックでもメタルでもないし、もちろんR&Bでもジャズでもない。まさしく絶妙、メロウな’80sロック。
 セルフプロデュースの良さが出た、元祖ベッドルーム・ポップとでも呼びたくなるアルバムでございました。いやこれはベッドルームAORか。見事にアーティストさん独自の完成された世界。以上僭越ながら小文謹呈。
