I have started free streaming distribution.

It’s been a while. It feels like it’s been a long time since I’ve headed to this blog, and I’m afraid I might forget how to write, but I found myself with some free time this Sunday afternoon and ended up here. Haha.

As I pondered what to write, there was only one topic that came to mind: since the end of last year, I’ve decided to make all the original songs I’ve created available for free streaming on the internet.

Yes, completely free.

I’ve always been vehemently against free streaming on the internet, but I’ve finally succumbed to the changing times. To be honest, I didn’t really have a choice. I need to explain why I decided to take this action.

Until now, I’ve only offered my guitar and piano solo pieces for free streaming, while keeping the fully produced band versions available only as paid downloads. However, I’ve now made all the fully produced band versions available for free streaming as well.

The main reason is that hardly anyone downloads them. Haha. While the cost of streaming isn’t significant, there are still some expenses involved. Looking at the total income over the past three years, I realized that streaming generates more revenue than downloads. So, I thought, why not make all the other pieces that were previously only available for download also available for free streaming? However, I knew this would happen from the beginning, and yet, I chose not to offer the fully produced band pieces for free streaming until now. But this time, I decided to go ahead and make everything free.

It’s not just about the financial aspect; there has also been a change in my mindset. I’ve always felt that my music doesn’t quite fit into this world, and I don’t think I have much time left in my life. So, rather than spend the rest of my life feeling alienated from the world, I decided to change my approach.

It’s not that my music doesn’t fit into this world; it’s just that this world doesn’t seem to need my music. There’s no deeper meaning to it. It’s time to stop fantasizing. When I die, my music will disappear with me, so whether it’s paid or free doesn’t matter. I just want as many people as possible to listen to it, so I’ve made it free for everyone to listen to online.

Please give it a listen if you can.

Thank you.

typical Japanese

Hello, this is Hisashibiri. Today is December 31st, which is New Year’s Eve 2023. I’m Japanese, but there are some Japanese customs that I just can’t get used to. One of them was that at the end of the year, all Japanese people do a lot of cleaning. They cleaned the inside of their house to make it shine without a single speck of dust. lol

When I was a child, my parents used to clean the house from top to bottom in preparation for the New Year, even though they had a lot of fights. Even though it’s this cold winter season, they don’t even turn on the stove and are raging the hallways and rooms. As a child, I had no choice but to do what they told me. LOL There is no such absurdity in the world! That’s what I thought as a child.

I wish we could stop this custom! I still think about this even now as an adult. So I asked Chat GPT if the custom of year-end cleaning exists in other countries and regions other than Japan, and I was told that it seems to be the case in China, South Korea, and Iran, and that it also exists in Jewish tradition. I was somewhat convinced that it wasn’t something only found in Japan.

However, year-end cleaning is still a pain for me and I don’t want to do it. It’s just that my family looks at me with disdain. LOL When I went out without cleaning or wrote a pointless blog like this, I would get some snarky comments like, “It’s the end of the year, so make sure to clean your room!” I won’t give in to this kind of peer pressure unique to Japan! I find myself rebelling against my family every year.

Just because it’s the end of the year, why do I have to do a big cleaning? Where did the individual freedom of not having to clean go? Is there any point in cleaning even if you fight and ruin your mood? I’ll do as much cleaning as I want after New Year’s! I always make a promise in my heart every year, but in the end, on New Year’s Eve, I will take the initiative to grab a vacuum cleaner and clean every corner of the house.

I am a typical Japanese person. very loud laugh

Happy New Year everyone!

French and Japanese cuisine

Hello, everyone. Long time no see! Is anyone still reading this blog? LOL. Now, what should I write about? By the way, the other day, I was tasked with creating sheet music by transposing the key for about six French chansons. I quickly worked on them, and lately, I’ve been receiving similar requests quite often. The more I delve into analyzing chansons, the more I’m impressed by how intricately they are crafted.

Originally, I thought you could just add a few chords to the basic three chords, right? However, complex chord progressions are incorporated, and it feels like, even if I try to integrate such progressions into my own compositions, I probably can’t. French musicians probably learn about such chord progressions in music school. But for me, a Japanese person, it’s like enjoying sophisticated French cuisine – delightful but somewhat like being in a different world. I can’t help but wonder, do we really need such intricate compositions?

However, nowadays, even Japanese hit songs have become very complex. I think the structure of songs is not so different based on the country or region. Nevertheless, I believe that, in the end, music must convey the essence of the person who created it. In that regard, I feel that many Japanese hit songs are just imitations of the West.

Why does this happen? I think it’s because Japan has a relatively short history of tonal music. While Japan has its unique folk songs and instruments, trying to express them in Western tonal music becomes challenging. For the Japanese, French cuisine is delicious and exquisite, but what really suits us is sushi and fish dishes with flavorful broth.

This time, I got a bit serious. Let’s meet again somewhere. LOL.

This time, I tried using ChatGPT for translation for the first time.

Hello everybody. It’s been a while since I’ve posted on this blog. How have you been during this time? Well, I don’t think anyone is reading this blog, so I’m just writing about it casually, but this time I’m going to talk about another new piece of music that I’ve created. The title of the work is “I’m looking at you”.

This work is the third and final completed band version of the guitar and piano songs that I have been singing since I was young. The first part is “Tonight”, the second part is”ON MY WAY BACK HOME AFTER WORK”, and the third part is “I’m looking at you.”

Unlike the previous two works, this version of “I’m looking at you” actually contains two new songs. The first two songs are like that, and the first song is a hip-hop song that raps,I don’t have any money, I don’t have a woman, I don’t have anything!” There’s no point in imitating black people, so I copied the song. uses the Japanese song “Mura Matsuri”. The second song is a song that blames a woman for having a child, irresponsibly shouting, “You’re a trouble man!” (lol) It’s also a Japanese slang word, so if Japanese people listen to this song, it might be quite funny, but foreigners might not be able to laugh at this harsh joke too much. yeah. In any case, these two songs have very irresponsible lyrics. (Laughs) That’s no surprise, as these two songs were created when I was around 20 years old, and they are songs that express my anger towards the world.

There are also quite a few songs with provocative and stimulating lyrics, but for those of you who don’t understand Japanese, it’s hard to understand what I’m singing. However, even if you don’t understand the lyrics, I think the music alone is enough to make you enjoy it. Because I’ve been listening to a lot of foreign songs that I don’t even know what they’re singing. (Laughs) I think it’s okay to listen to music and just feel it.

This work contains various provocative songs, but it ends with the song “I’m looking at you,” which is the title. This is an important keyword that I discovered when I was born into this world. I don’t know how to translate these words, but the translator at the time when I played this song on the piano and listened to it, translated it as “WATCHING OVER YOU.” I feel like the content of the lyrics somehow contains that kind of nuance. Even if you don’t understand Japanese, you may be able to imagine the content of this song.

Why not give it a listen! ? However, this work has not been sold yet… You can’t hear it, can you? Are you okay. The version played on the piano is available for streaming, so please give it a listen. I hope you like it.

I used Google Translate.

Hello everyone, how are you doing? Last time I talked about making a video to go with my original song, and this time I’d like to report that I made a video again.

I made an image video for the song “Now”. This is the 6th song on my original album “Moon”.
The content of the lyrics is a dubious and fantastical one, about a man and a woman riding a boat on an empty lake, wishing to go as far away as possible. The word “Now” has always bothered me, and humans have no choice but to live in the”Now”, from which we look to the future and look back on the past.

When I was young, the moment I created a song, it was already a thing of the past, so the unfinished song remained in my head, and I felt like my mind could only see the past. I suffered a lot. I created this song called “Now” in order to somehow relieve this suffering.

This is a difficult topic, but I wanted to talk about the video production for the song “Now”. The lake that appears in the lyrics of this song “Now” is not located nearby, so I rented a boat on a nearby pond to shoot. (Laughs) It was mid-summer afternoon, and the sun was shining so brightly on the boat that it was so hot that I thought I was going to get heatstroke, and at the same time, it was a humid and humid day that is unique to Japan.

It was so hot that my rented boat was the only one floating in the pond, and I was able to take photos freely in the hot sun. The water in the pond is green, so the video looks like something out of the famous movie “Apocalypse Now”, which is quite suspicious.

Would you like to watch this video? And why don’t you listen to the song “Now”? And why don’t you go somewhere far away with me? This time, the text turned out to be quite fantastical. It’s autumn of art. (lol)
