Welcome to slice-of-life desktop pop, presenting a collection of four songs for the four seasons, with synthesized lead vocals using AquesTone and UTAU.
Upon completing “Feel Sunshine” for the Minna no UTAU “United Together Around UTAU” project, I noticed that I created a song for each of the four seasons and resolved to make this EP, which collects them. The versions heard are new for this release, containing edits and new instruments and voices.
You make the sound I can’t ignore… to let me know you’re alive.
My first completed SID. Created with Deflemask, which was a stronger tool than I had expected. The C64 sound chip has a lot of unique characteristics that I didn’t expect to be implemented into a tracker that can program for many sound chips.
Now that the event is over, it can be purchased via mail order to addresses in Japan though Melonbooks. News regarding rest-of-world distribution is forthcoming. Details will be provided once available.
When a person is late paying a utility, the company will send a bill on an alternate colored paper, like pale blue, pink, or yellow, to warn the person that disconnection is imminent, hence “the bills keep changing colors;” I’m not sure if this sort of thing is done outside the US.
This was the second to last vocal I rendered with the Megpoid Gumi English demo before it expired. I didn’t finish making it right away because the cover song I released before it flopped badly, but considering the “special theme” of “commercial sound” and temporary covers allowed, I thought it might be good to give it a try here.
