"Yorukumo" (Nightspider) by Michi Urushihara.

Just finished Vols. 1 and 2 of "Yorukumo" (Nightspider) by Michi Urushihara. The work will continue to the next volme.The theme, society gaps between the haves and the have-nots, has something in common to Lars von Trier's "Dogvill".
Or it's a negative image of Ghibli animation works.
Two main characters, innocent in different ways, are forced to face the severity and extreme cruelty of the gap.


The 97th COMITIA is over and my new single CD

I was in my booth of another dojin event COMITIA 97 held today.

The event is only for "original" contents, whose elements such as characters or settings are not derived from other major works.

Even only a week after the biggest event, the 80th Comic Market, quite a lot of people visited this event, showing strong interesting with this kind of contents.

The air has got still cooler for these two days, with occasional little rain and we felt much better than a week ago.

My new single CD was released on this event, named as "Ting Single" with one song and its instrumental version of about 7 minutes each. The track has not yet on the web but its extract.

The 2nd day of the 80th Comic Market is over

The 2nd day of the 80th Comic Market is over. I met and talked with some of my friends who is also making music, in spite of too much hotness, humidity and crowd of the most extreme level.

The event has grown up to such a level that one can only visit the booths of their interest by looking up their location in the map in advance. In other words, there'd hardly be unintentional encounters with unknown artists. Less surprising.

Comments on Pmlw Single

Pmlw Single was made and released on August 28, 2010 for the 93rd Comitia.

I don't remember exactly what I was thinking when I made this. I was under just a spontaneous process of placing and editing melodies and sounds on my DAW. It was basically an automatic writing of the music even on post-processing of the arrangements.

The result somehow lacks a focus, or showing-off things. It was like a weaved textiles.
