Anime Music on the AIRS Ep. 6 – The Macross Special

qwerqcv

Hello there! Maskerade here filling in for zzeroparticle this time as he roams the seven seas in search for treasure. Because it’s my first time on the air, I thought I would bring out something close to my heart – MACROSS. And while dazzling visuals and intense drama makes for compulsive viewing of this space opera, ultimately, it’s always been about the songs. And it’s such a massive list of songs to showcase!

So I hope that the selection I’ve picked will bring out the nostalgia in you and get the blood pumping as well. Unfortunately, the authority that is Youtube did not like some of my song choices, and I had to omit Macross Plus and Macross Zero pieces, as well as an Aimo rendition, all of which makes me sad. The audio below however, is in its full glory.

Anime Music on the AIRS Ep. 5 – Traditional Japanese Music

qwerqcv
On this week’s Anime Music on the AIRS, we touch on traditional Japanese music, where samurai, leftover idols, and spirits all mix in perfect harmony. Thanks again to your feedback and support!

This time, we were a bit late due to issues with Youtube. By which I mean they weren’t happy with some of your requests, so we wound up having the strip them out. Maybe someday, we’ll release what we had intended to release… assuming this program ever gets popular enough. It was a bit of a challenge trying to maintain some semblance of balance and variety, but we hope you enjoy this effort all the same! So with that, sit back, relax, and let’s explore those traditional Japanese themes.

Music Notes: Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso – Episode 7

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 07-1
If you’ve been following the progress of these musical notes for Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, you’ll notice that they’ve been slow going with my output dependent solely upon my whims. Sometimes it’s a soundtrack that catches my ear and diverts me down that road. Sometimes it’s something else entirely. And sometimes, it’s a question on my Ask.fm that nudges me back on track.

In any event, I’m skipping Episode 5 and Episode 6’s post as there’s no classical music to speak of. The character development in the two episodes was nice and I enjoyed the musical sentiments discussed, sentiments like imagining in your mind how you’d play a piece before even touching the instrument. In classical music, this is key if you want to differentiate yourself. Every good performer will put their stamp upon a work and the resulting interpretations are why it’s worth listening to different performances of the same work. You may find that you prefer one interpretation over another. Besides that, these two episodes set the course for Kousei Arima’s next step: to perform Chopin’s Etude No. 5 op. 25 at the nationally-recognized Maihou Music Competition. [Read more…]
