Over 100 songs
———-This is a new series, right?
Yes, Freakz has had a long career and has over 100 songs.
These are the old songs, the so-called “studies”.
I thought I would put them on Youtube little by little.
———-You have a lot of songs.
They are just “studies”, so there are a lot of songs that are not ready to be performed.
I’ll upload the best ones one by one.
———-It’s a good idea, isn’t it?
Novel by Conan Doyle in which the great detective Holmes first appeared
Don’t you know?
It’s the novel by Conan Doyle in which the great detective Holmes first appeared.
———-Isn’t that “Hiiro-no-Kenkyu”?
Look it up, it was also published as “Hiiro-no-Shusaku”.
Some say the Shusaku is a more accurate translation.
———-I think the Kenkyu is cooler.
That’s why you’re recognized in the Kenkyu.
Well, I mean, it’s a project to introduce studies, so I just put the name of my favorite novel on it.
The amount of editing points is the same as saying that you are an amateur
———-So you’re going to do a recording in one shot for this series.
Yes, that’s the main point.
It’s the antithesis of Youtubers and TikTokers.
———-Again with the small talk…
Look at the videos of popular Youtubers.
You’ll be amazed at all the editing points.
———-Yes, there are a lot of edit points.
Too many editing points is spoiled.
That’s an exaggeration.
———-It’s not an exaggeration.
They just record a video without much thought, and then cut and paste…it’s just not very nice to watch.
———-That can’t be helped, because unlike actors and TV personalities, they are amateurs.
The amount of editing points is the same as saying that you are an amateur.
———-But there are a lot of people who are popular and make a lot of money.
I don’t pander to the masses.
They make videos for people who enjoy that kind of thing and make money.
———-I don’t know.
That’s what makes it live
It’s hard to do a recording in one shot, I have to practice, and it’s nerve-wracking.
But that’s what makes it live.
———-Then you should do live distribution, too.
Umm, I’ll do that another time.
———-…Oh, no. Enough of this, let’s talk about the song.
I wrote the song when I was in college
I wrote the song when I was in college.
According to the record, it was written in 2000.
———-The lyrics were written by YOSHIFUMI.
Yes, he was a friend of mine in college.
We decided to try the process of having YOSHIFUMI write the lyrics first and then add the music to it.
I don’t remember which one of us came up with the idea first.
———-So the lyrics came first.
In other words, it has to be fuckin’ fast
Yes, and YOSHIFUMI presented some conditions for composing the music.
BPM 230 or higher.
In other words, it has to be fuckin’ fast.
———-Wow, that’s interesting.
It’s really interesting.
You’d think that restrictions would mean less freedom of thought, but it’s not the case, it’s the opposite.
———-It’s the other way around.
Yes, I can come up with many more ideas than when I think without restrictions.
This was a fantastic first experience.
———-Wow, it’s a strange thing, isn’t it?
Anyway, that’s how the song “Fingertip” came about.
I can’t just release something like that at a moment’s notice
———-What were some of the challenges?
The mix from 2000 was so crappy that I had to start from scratch.
So it takes a lot of time.
It also took me a long time to memorize the lyrics.
Especially since they weren’t my own lyrics, it took a long time for the words to come out smoothly.
After recording the video and the song for the first time, I recorded the chorus, mixed, and mastered the song.
It seems like I can’t just release something like that at a moment’s notice.
———-Well, it seems that your aesthetic is to create something good even if it takes a long time, so I won’t say anything.
I’m glad you understand.
Look forward to the next one, STAY METAL!
