I decided to post my blog in English in addition to “Findings“, which has been kept for almost a decade. While Findings mainly handles my daily life and favorites in general, this blog would be focused more on specific themes and issues about music from the viewpoint of a composer or music professional.
Having said that, I wouldn’t get into very technical subjects such as music software or engineering because you can find many other knowledge-based articles out there. Instead, I’d like to stick to more sensuous or storytelling elements of music, i.e. music as a “time journey” or “the art of time”. Which is also the reason why I love to make both dance music (incl. playing DJ) and music for movies (incl. Ad films). I hate to come off as grandiose, but what I love most about making music is “to compose time” with sound.
Talking of music for movies, my latest project Dark Model has been launched in consideration of synchronization with movies. When you listen to tracks of Dark Model below, you could easily connect these tracks with some scenes of action, fantasy, horror movies and trailers, etc. Actually some of them have already been used for advertising films. However, I hope you’ll enjoy them independently (= not being synched with some visual elements) as well and use your own imagination. I believe music/sound originally can exist and be appreciated by itself, whatever it is, i.e. pop music or elevator music, or even just a sequence of noise.
We, as listeners, have freedom to envision and create our own story with music. Which is one of the happiest things when it comes to enjoying music, isn’t it?
