i just back fro the post office to get my るろうに剣心 poster that my friend kindly send to me. He is from Singapore and about two weeks ago, he said to me if he won るろうに剣心 poster and kindly asked whether if i want it or not …
I said yes, i want it ….!!!
But it is always took forever to ge to get something that i really want. This time is るろうに剣心 poster, If my friend said i will get it on 10 days i think i will have it on 20 or 25 days from the day he send it. I am not gonna say Indonesian Post is slow, but maybe it is because how far is my village.
i suppose now it is the perfect time where this sassy and annoying Miss Sarah Bunting will say …
i really don’t like her at all,
even Lady Mary approved by sayin to Tom about how not keen she is for Miss Bunting even she also said she will support whatever Tom decide later.
But we have to see her a lot in this 5 Season of Downton Abbey since Tom Branson, the lovely Irish widower’s part is bigger and Miss Bunting is in it. And …
Do you know what Miss Bunting said to those Rusian refugees ….?
yasu : noi_chan, stop talking about your TV series …
YUKI : is she always like this …
yasu : yeah, she is one of those TV junkies
noi : guys, i can hear you ne …
yasu : then finish this post hurry, i am busy
so because how i don’t like that sassy Miss Bunting, from now on i will call every pepople that i think annoying as Miss Bunting … !!!
next is this ….
~ CD & DLでーた 2014年 10月号 Interview : Focus 1 「 Music Production Technics 」
From a powerful rock tone to a beautiful ballad, until now yasu won hearts of the fans thanks to his various musical compositions.
So how is yasu‘s thoughts about music production technical like writing lyrics, creating song and more …?
Every song, surely need their own process and how is yasu‘s thoughts about that?
If the intro doesn’t fit, then it will not reach the hook
ー yasu is said to be a type of serious person when the time of music production. Is that true ?
「yes, i am not a type of person who love to keep ideas that i got on the days before because on the regular day i cannot think maximal.
Actually i only able to create music when there’s eagerness to make it. If i don’t have the Let’s Make Music … !!!, then i cannot make a music.
On the other way, when i am in the period of making music time then i will think about it over and over. Even when i am doing any other activity like playing game or watching TV. 」
ー DAIGO even say : yasu, why when it come to creating music time you really hard to call ?
Are you too serious to do it …?
「ha ha ha … yes (laugh) because i really could not pick up the phone. 」
ー yasu, do you often play musical instruments and do arrangement by yourself?
「yes, but sometimes i feel not sure enough after finished some percent, so i always ask for opinions.
Basically, i never think what they think about me because if i think about it, it will be a burden for me. But at least they will give the best right?
However i do love many musical instruments. I don’t like if somebody say a vocalist job is only to make song. 」
ー yasu, you really love drums aren’t you?
On Ongaku to Higetachi 2014 – Stadium Rock’n Roll August 30th in Niigata on the performance of Maximum The Hormone you seemed having fun to claps your hands on your knees as if you were playing drums.
「yes, at that time i was carried away.
I do love drums, because drum’s pattern also can produce a nice song.
When i started to create a song, i think about what kind of pattern that fans preferred. Is it a vertical or horizontal pattern. Beside that, i also set the tempo, rhythm, beat and else. 」
ー In making music composition, what is the most prioritized part?
「Intro. Intro is the most important right?
I am more better in intro than hook, even people say i am good on hook but if the intro doesn’t fit then it will not reach the hook.
Song and melody also very important. With melody, intro become a music. There’s a time guitar riff is also important. I often says i want to able to do key … !! like this then tryin various keys. At that time, i always do my best.
On music production, want to started from any part each person have their own way depends on the music it self. But i think the most important is the upper tone and intro. Upper tone set, then to intro.
First, i think about what kind of melody that i will use and then i make the intro. 」
1. Intro/introduction is a unique section that comes at the beginning of the song. usually contain only music and no words.
2. Hook is a musical idea, often a short riff, passage, or phrase, that is used in popular music to make a song appealing and catch the ear of the listener. It generally applies to popular music, especially rock music, R&B, hip hop, dance music, and pop
ー By using mono, is there something that can be started with melodi A or B?
「 There is. I only use some trick that basically it came up from my thoughts as well. By doing trials like key changing on this and that part.」
ー have you ever make the lyrics first and then the music?
「No. Creating words, lyrics straight together with melody i suppose that’s a rare thing to happen. For example : what kind of melody for this word eh …? it is gonna be hard to remember.
But generally lyrics are take on from the tone」
ー so after tone then lyrics?
Then on the phase of where you start to think about things like on this music i am gonna a scene like this or i wanna make this from a woman’s point of view ?
「Well, i am not that kind of type.
When i take the lyrics, i do system check first. For example, on this high key i want to use a or e. I am not good with row u and the height of row i. Or i am good with ki in this key, but ki on that key i am not good enough.
That was it, i think a lot about that kind of things then i managed to decide it.
Then to make music good to be heard, i often play on words. For example it’s a high tone seems perfect eith a, because it is falsetto , maybe it will better to make it u or i. I never do tone extension for n.
yeah, just like that.
Because based on voice, there are times when the voice will be easily lost or in words there is voice that broken or sonant. Then there’s 2 syllables on one tone, example ai spoken in one voice : ai. There’s also three syllables in one tone.
That’s how i write lyrics while think about what kid of words i have to use so it can become a beautiful melody.」
ー ah, that’s why your music is so good to be heard and has its own characteristics. Not inferior to western music
ー so the first step is system check. But after that do you also make a storyline? That’s a pretty hard thing to do, isn’t it? Because you also have to adjust the character or letter to a perfect voice.
「yea, that’s the phase that need most time and cause problem.
Like prioritize the story, points of the lyrics or the beautiful voice. For that kind of meaning, it supposed to use this word, but later it will come to be less in the listener’s heart, like that. 」
ー sounds really hard eh …
「yeah, it is hard. It’s quite troublesome work to do. Well, i can only explain to that, maybe not all but actually that is the hardest part.
Because for the listener, the point and storyline of a song lyrics is important but me as the song writer must give the priority to the beautiful sounds.」
ー OK, then on the timing when you will say what if we make this melody is for another song …
「There’s no such an exact timing to say. It just flows. Creating an atmosphere or sometime write a little bit painful lyrics to non-mellow.
Of course when the melody already set, then automatically the atmosphere, color or the song’s beauty will created. 」
ー なるほど、by the way some says if a master piece usually created when you really are broken hearted rather than when you are happy or nothing happen.
What about you yasu? Is there any song created because your heart was broken?
「yeah, it was a long time ago.
But actually i am not somebody who able to create when broken heart or sad. yes, i had one. I wrote a song lyrics because i my heart was broken.
It was a long time ago, when i wrote lyrics of Janne Da Arc ‘s Kasumi Yuki Sora Se ni Shite, i was broken hearted before.
On that lyrics, i let the words based on the scene of what i had that time. But because of that it sounds more real. so the message can delivered well to the listener.
People do have their own way of thinking, but for me when i am in my saddest time i cannot write lyrics.
Then few time later, maybe i remember it again that scene and i able to write a lyrics. And of course that sad is already my past so i can laugh and talk about it with you.」
ー 口づけて 愛し方 教えてくれたなら
忘れ方も 教えてよ …
kuchizukete aishikata oshietekureta nara
wasurekata mo oshiete yo
Since by kissing me, you taught me how to love
Teach me how to forget it, too
流した涙の数だけ 君を愛してた これだけは言えるよ間違いじゃない
nagashita namida no kazu dake kimi wo aishiteta kore dake wa ieru yo machigaijanai
With just the tears I’ve shed, I can only say I loved you, and that’s no mistake
then the listener will say this lyrics is so me, i wanna cry. But now it is not the time to be drawn in this memories
「ha ha ha , really ….?
But i think that’s good, every listener must their own memories right?
But for example if the scene on this song not really sounds good to them, at least by listening to the song they can feel what other people may feel.」
ー yes, yes music composition and and lyrics are totally connected. Just like your technics of using a little bit painful lyrics on a non-mellow song
「yeah, like that. When i was young, i thought it is not a good lyrics if it’s to easy to understand」
ーFor this interview, to gathered information i was also read yasu‘s song lyrics. It turned out to be fairly typical, because it’s different with other love song’s lyrics. On yasu‘s lyrics, there’s lot of man and woman’s psychological description.
「Is that much? I don’t even realize it.
I think a love song it must be connected with the phrase オマエが好き/I love you. There’s no such words like 愛してる/I love you. So i change the point of view of 愛してる/I love you feeling.
When i write a lyrics, i always pay attention from which point of view is the storyline. 」
オマエが好き/Omae ga suki for I love you is more often used by man rather than 愛してる.
Because 愛してる is more serious I love you with a deeper meaning about you want to spent the rest of your life with someone you say 愛してる to
ーWhen i read your lyrics it also surprised me and make me say so, it is like this when my feelings written to words . And because that lyrics also remind me to my forgotten feelings.
Not only from the perfect scene and point of view but i also able to bubbling the emotions from that feelings/experience i ever had.
I think it is brilliant.
「Really? i didn’t expect it can be that way, but i am glad to hear your opinion.
Actually lyrics is pretty hard to do. It is true if a song lyrics gonna feel more live if it’s according to our experience even maybe it will violates some policy.
But if only care about policy, so only rely on outside look or cool stuffs to sat then the message will not delivered at all. So too much to the point is not good but not less is not good as well.」
ーso the to the point sing for real it invites sympathy or lots of responds, but is it also caused haters?
「yeah, actually it is.
Lyrics is not easy. I’ve read a lyrics that the meaning is not clear what the hell is this ?.
But otherwise, when i was young i had a wish to use cool words on lyrics. Inside a lyrics, beside there’s a good choice of words surely it also has a good meaning.
Because if the meaning is too easy to understand, then it will become a not good lyrics」
ーFurthermore yasu, in one song from 3 minutes to 5 minutes there must be a storyteller that can make a good story , just like you. And when there’s a booming song and lyrics, you always be an icon.
「Thanks for the compliment, accept anything like that was nice.
It will created an imagination for the listener. I want all the listener enjoy my song, impressed, get a new mood or carried away. I will be very happy if my music and lyrics can move the listener’s heart.
For example, somebody eat an hamburger. I will be happy that person say what is this, i never eat something like this before but it is delicious rather than it’s like a delicious hamburger that i ate before.
Another example, a person who love metal is like a person who love curry. Today is curry, tomorrow is Qeema curry (Indian curry) and next day is black curry. Then that person say waah so delicious, curry is the best … !!!.
Each person have their own specialties, but i’d prefer if that person say wah, it is really curry but what’s the ingredients huh? i never see it before.
Something like that is my goal, to find a new unexpected things. And i don’t like to say it is not good for something 」
ーBecause not good, it doesn’t mean it is a bad thing right?
「Yes, both in song or lyrics. After debut, i was somebody that so chatty about lyrics.
When somebody asked me Is your lyrics failed …. ? i answered there is definitely a failure.
People do have failure right.
Bad result, it can be prevented, but i always not somebody who have a confident about lyrics, so while writing a lyrics i often confused how is this ? . But because there’s a failure so i became like this. 」
ーそう、a simple type …
「really, i just know there’s such a simple type」
ーIf you think it is a positive, you also think about the negative part right?
「yes, perhaps. When i talked with other musician, i’ve said Are you sure that’s gonna be good? but i even decided it’s better not to be published. It must be fun if it can be published well, but actually not published it also fine.
So when i think about it again, failed is sucks. 」
ーyaya, it’s like you admitting your own lyrics. I also had one, when i was young i often get my script failed to publish.
「Maybe it is the same feeling, but aren’t you feel tired if you keep failin? 」
ーyes, because a script is also sum of words. We can’t just decided to use what kind of word, like a lyrics.
「Writing a lyrics, maybe we can call it as a song fiction. Open one by one part that step by step it will become better than before.」
ーyeah, it’s like sharpening yourself, so it’s normal if we feel happy about getting a compliment.
「Get a compliment is like getting a recognition and think i finally recognized … !!! then feel happy.」
ーyou are a person with lots of compliments eh ..
「ha ha ha …
Compliments, that means a lot. People who often failed, they must be very tired. I can say that because i had failures too. I am thankful for that but still, failed is sucks.」
ーthen do your best not to fail
「ha ha ha, that’s right 」
ーand do your best as talented person
「Talented, who is talented ?」
ーno no no, i think you are a really talented person. You must feel why i am now able to understand a woman’s heart?That must be because you learned a lot from romance aren’t you?
「I am not that bad. We never realize if we can learn a lot from many things. I am that kind of person.」
ーBtw, the new single on October is gonna have what kind of feeling?
「A song composition that’s not like a single at all. 「Greed Greed Greed」 is not like a single song. If this single can be more than 4, then i will think about an album.
Fans who already know my style must start to wonder how is the next album concept …? . I am really happy to hear it. So i hope you all to wait. 」
that’s all for today ….
i a will continue the next part maybe Focus 2 : Statement Collection (yasu’s) tomorrow while waiting for the Secret Meeting to come, because i am gonna spent this day to continue this …
Do you see the Shangri – La …..?
first area is almost finish, 11 area left to finish aaandd
next area will be more difficult than the previous because it is the middle area means there’s no blocking job (read : not changing color a lot, but only use the same color for a larger area) .
Changing color a lot is a bit difficult to me since i only have one needle and i keep lost it and forget where the hell i put it.
So yeah i will need more coffee for that …
i am a coffee addict, so yes i do love and need coffee ….
Last night it was a little bit hell of a night since there’s no coffee left in the kitchen and i don’t like to go out again after after work if nothing important. I went to bed with no coffee last night.
