Welcome to the Sound Horizon Cafe Shuu fellows!
Here you can talk about the news, discuss of what already exist, share translated lyrics, your favorite songs or just to know what Sound Horizon is.
Some may be asking, "What is she talking about and why these men are dressed as maids?!"
I can't really explain the second question but, for the first one, I can't give a better answer than the summary they wrote:
- "The fantasy band Sound Horizon is a group of artists led by the sound creator Revo (songwriter, composer and arranger). In order to express a fantastical story musically, he gathers together and organizes suitable artists, without restrictions with regard to the number and sex of singers and storytellers. In a word, Sound Horizon’s music is “story music”. Its main characteristic is the way stories are depicted using a lot of poems, songs, talking, sound effects, etc., in accordance with the setting. The music is expressed in “suite form”; each album is made as though it were a suite. The concepts underlying their works question fundamental elements of human nature that have a contradictory dual aspect; they include life and death, light and shadow, love and hate, and happiness and sadness. The more one listens to the music, the more one understands its depth."
The lyrics involve different and creative stories and characters. They are also very lyrical. Sometimes I get confuse and I have to read two or three times to finally understand. As wrote in the summary, "The more one listens to the music, the more one understands its depth." -> Totally true.
Sanhora (abbreviated version by fans) don't stay in the shadows, but they go up on stage to do live performances. The singers dress up in costumes of their characters and, like a play, they sing and act during the live. Is very fun to watch.
Well, this is my own opinion about Sound Horizon. I think I could say many other things, but the post would probably be too long. And this is just a little review of it.
I hope you like and help you to understand more about this incredible fantasy band. ^^
Of course if you have a different opinion, feel free to say so. =D
(I made this topic based on the Vocaloid thread, I hope it's ok Lily-chan. I think we'll need this specially with the release of the new Maxi Single. So if we want to discuss about it we can do it here and not spam the board.)
Enough with the presentations and let's talk about Sound Horizon! =D
Only 8 days days left to the release of the new Maxi Single 'Ido e itaru Mori e itaru Ido'.
Today they have released the Voices & Vocals for the Maxi Single.
-Junger März PROTOTYPE β
One of the new singers, Hatsune Miku from Vocaloid and I don't know the other one know as Junger März PROTOTYPE β. Honestly I'm a bit surprised to see that Revo decided to use two computer generated voices and I'm not sure if I'm happy with that. Nothing against Vocaloid, I just think Sound Horizon have excellent singers and he didn't need to utilize computers.
I'm also surprised that only MIKI is in this Single. I have no idea who the others are except for Akio, Rica and Nobuo.
