New song is done.
Okay, the truck is almost done..
Well, Try it, Chris…? Uh, actually, Songman.
Chris : “FUCK YOU”
I’m in the dark, staring at the sky, listening to “Dragging Soul”.
Most of the time when I feel painful or difficult to create, it is when I have forgotten my “original experience”.
I believe that creation is following the “original experience”.
What you create in the “original experience” is the only creation that is 100 points in your life, and there is no way to surpass it.
Therefore, I believe that the act of simply imitating the work created in the first “original experience” is true creation.
If you are doing true creation, you will not feel any pain.
So what is my “original experience”?
It was an episode when I was in high school and composed my first piece of music.
I had a best friend who was a vocal music major, and I always accompanied her on the piano in her singing competitions.
She had asthma and had been suffering mentally and physically about it.
I learned about her suffering from it, wrote lyrics, and composed a song about it.
I wrote a song called “Asthma Song”.
The lyrics were a bit self-deprecating, incomplete, and the melody was classical and in a minor key.
I practiced the song with her and performed it to my classmates.
Everyone laughed and praised us, saying we were great.
After that, my classmates often asked me to play the “asthma song”.
So this is my “original experience”. Based on that, there are also second and third original experiences.
For example, when I created my first Vocaloid song and participated in an event and saw the smiles on the faces of my fans, or when I met Chie and we worked together on a project.
But the first original experience is the answer to everything, and this is the one thing that must always be firmly tied to you.
In other words, this is my “original experience,” the “asthma song”.
The more I deviate from this point, the more I find it hard and painful to create.
No matter how many people tell me that a work that deviates from my “original experience” is “good,” I feel no joy at all.
“JUNK” is a work that rather closely follows my original experience.
But I should make something that is even closer to my original experience.
I have a favorite flower shop.
When I went there yesterday, the manager was eating a cup noodle.
It was funny because the flower shop, always filled with the scent of flowers, completely smelled like cup noodles.
This year, I want to write my diary in English.
Today, I was cooking.
I often talk to myself while cooking.
So, When I was cutting the chicken, I said this to myself.
“This chicken has a lot of fat on it! He got fat from the cold! Because it’s winter!!”
And I laughed at myself for saying it.
I laughed because it was funny to imagine …… if I could hear a voice saying such strange things from the backyard of some restaurant.
It’s silly, isn’t it?
I can’t drink alcohol, so I’m always sober, but I have a habit of talking to myself weirdly at home.
Yup. I always have a good time while cooking like this.
