For SounDevotion Competition Round 57, placed second.
Featuring the AquesTone singers http://www.a-quest.com
I saw a lady in the supermarket that seemed way too happy to hear some Motown; that’s the energy I wanted for this.
Aquestone speech synthesizer only has phonemes for Japanese, giving the vocals their strange character and making them admittedly difficult to understand. I am considering practicing with UTAU for future projects.
Time brings out the sunshine
You’re still soaked from the rain
It won’t wait until you’re ready
Flowers bloom make it uneasy
It will have to do
Moment yours alone
Springtime comes, it makes you nervous
Not the same to anyone else
Greeting with a smile, she calls your name, you can’t resist
Her smile and her sweet stare
In the springtime air
The nights are still cool
Before summer invades
Springtime beckons you
Anticipation makes you nervous
