This time, I did the arrangement of "Neo EXDEATH" and "The Extreme"in addition to "Darkness and Starlight Part3". "FINAL FANTASY V" was the game which I was in charge alone in the publicity department, and "FINAL FANTASY VIII" was the game which I worked as a advertising producer for the first time. Those were really a hard time for me working for a big project, so I have a special feeling for those 2 music pieces.
When I arranged the "Maybe I'm a Lion"in our 2nd album, I made an original riff, and tried to develop dramatic. But this time, for that reason, I tried not to change too much from the original arrangement. And also I tried to realize the sound which was played in my mind then, by using the TBM style. To be honest, there were a few point which I grew teary-eyed by suffering, how to express the original feelings. But finally, I think that I was able to find an acceptable way!
In the middle part of the "Distant Worlds", I played the soulful gut-string guitar solo which was inspired by Fukui-san's erotic.....No, mellow arrangement. In addition to the lyrical piano of Fukui-san, and the storm of Sekito-san's Guitar solo, it will surely touch everybody's heartstrings!
I have a lot of things I want to say for each music, but it seems that there isn't much space to write, again....
