さくらゆっけ – Hakurei the Danmaku Surfer Self Liner Notes

Original post here.
All previous EPs by Sakurayukke are available for free download on Noe‘s soundcloud.
Hakurei the Danmaku Surfer is currently event only.
_________________

C86二日目に一般参加で行きました。
脱水状態で足と手先がプルプル震えたまま東方アレンジの島周ってました、水分はちゃんと摂りましょう。

過去に記事にしたい、と書いてやっていなかったセルフライナーノーツを書きます。
他の作品についての記事もそのうち書くと思います。

I went to the 2nd day of Comic Market 86 as an ordinary attendee.
In my dehydrated condition, my legs and fingers were trembling as I circled through the Touhou arrange areas, so let’s be sure to properly rehydrate.

I want to write about the past, and so I’ll write the self liner notes I haven’t done.
I think I’ll write this kind of thing for the other releases, as well.

1.ハクレイ・ザ・ダンマクサーファー
タイトル曲ですね、イントロのフレーズはKing of Surf GuitarことDick Daleの「Misirlou」そのもので、
アウトロはThe Surf Coastersが演奏した同曲のオマージュです。

自分が東方projectの楽曲のアレンジを作り始めた時に浮かんだ疑問である
「海の無い幻想郷でなぜサーフィンなんだ」というものに対する答えであったりします、プレイヤー is 弾幕サーファー。

1. Hakurei the Danmaku Surfer
It’s the title song; the beginning is a homage to “The King of Surf Guitar” Dick Dale’s Misirlou,
and the outro is based on The Surf Coasters’ cover version of the same song.

When I first started arranging music from the Touhou Project a problem had arose:
“There’s no ocean in Gensoukyou so why surfing…?” was a question I faced, but I have a response:
The “Player” is a “Danmaku Surfer.”

2.カナメイシ・ライダー
1曲目の元ネタの「Misirlou」と共に、映画「Pulp Fiction」で使われた「Surf Rider」という楽曲が元ネタです。
タイトルが先に思いついてよしやるぞ、と思ったらアレンジもレコーディングも両方難航しました、一番時間がかかってます。

天子の曲のアレンジは2曲目だったりします、最初にアレンジしたものについては聞かないでください。
要石は乗るものではないと思います(ダッシュB)

2. Kanameishi Rider
If the first song’s origins are based on “Misirlou,” then like it, the next song also is based on a song from the movie “Pulp Fiction,” namely “Surf Rider.”
I had come up with the title ahead of time, but then I had a hard time arranging and recording, and thus spent the most time on this song.

Tenshi’s song’s arrangement is the second song, but please don’t ask about how I arranged it in the beginning.
Kanameishi” isn’t anything you can ride, I think (Dash B)

3.Burnin’ Wheels
珍しく元ネタと言える元ネタが無いです。それ故のB面扱い。
特定の元ネタが無い事を伝えて、ドラムのアレンジをぷれしお(Mix/Mastering)にお願いしたらフィル等モダンなドラムになりました。
Aメロ前のドドタン!はラルクだったり(要ツインペダル)、アウトロの減速する部分はandymoriの「everyting is my guitar」だったり。

タイトル含めた曲のイメージは妖怪火車と、フレイムペイントを施したホットロッドのカスタムカーです。
排気音とか燃焼し切れずマフラーから漏れる炎とか。
そんなんで死体取りに来る我が幻想郷のお燐はヤクザかなんかだと思います。

3. Burnin’ Wheels
Strangely enough there’s no homage in this track. The release’s B-side.
There wasn’t any particular song I wanted to homage, so I left drum arrangement to Bureshio (Mix/Mastering) and when I got the files back the drum fills had become modern.
Before the A-melody’s “Do-do-tan!,” there’s a shout to L’Arc, and the outro’s decelerated portion is a shout to andymori’s “everything is my guitar.”

The title was based on the ideas of ghostly kasha, and the image of a custom hot-rod with flaming paint.
Images like the sound of exhaust, or the combustion of a flaming muffler.
If something like that was used to come around and pick up corpses, Gensoukyou’s Orin would seem more like yazuka to me, I think.

死際サテライト – 境界デッドエンド

Shinigiwa Satellite – Kyoukai Dead End

because it’s only been 2 weeks since I last posted a shinigiwa tab

I should change this blog’s name to “shinigiwa tabs”

—-

Also, I’m going to get serious for a minute: I actually arrange my own Touhou punk songs and I think they’re getting to a point where I’m not embarrassed to post about them anymore.

So here is my webpage: Find Your Way

and bandcamp: Find Your Bandcamp

And the information page w/ XFD for the new release, coming out in 2 weeks for C86:

UNOWN EP

In addition to that, I actually arrange my own Touhou post-rock songs and those have always been pretty cool IMO:

the distant journey to you

I’m doing a split with my internet friend denshuto for C86, as well. And the plan is to have the full album (a year in the making) done for C87.

So, if you’re checking the blog, and you enjoy what I post on the blog (lyric translations, tabs, etc.), I would really, really dig it if you checked out those projects. I’m not asking you to “like” my music (because even though I’m now comfortable with my own voice I realize it is not a “good” voice, nor am I skilled at any instrument I claim to be able to play) but I am asking if you’d check them out, and maybe if you do like them, throw me a couple bucks and tell other people who might be interested about the weird foreigner doing Touhou rock. I’d really appreciate it.

I am on twitter a lot of the time, so feel free to complain about how this blog has “sold out to the man.”

Register6 – 想ひ出の唄 [LYRICS]

This song is just too good. It was concerning when Register6 lost both okahira and mIsAkI, but yokoyama fits really well here. Vaguely looking forward to more Register6 if he’ll be a frequent guest vocalist.

You can check yokoyama’s rock band here.

Song: 想ひ出の唄
Artist: ロー ft. ヨコヤマ
Circle: Register6
