For SounDevotion Competition Round 62

Lyric cowritten by Momoko Fujimoto, the donor of Momo’s voice! Her blog is http://momolabo2406.blogspot.com/

The primary inspiration for this, besides the tabla samples (a sound I’ve always liked but haven’t used in a long time,) is a sort of poem which, at first reading, I misunderstood: http://twitter.com/#!/momowa_bot/status/131959743072833536

@momowa_bot is a roleplayed account; that tweet is a child amazed as leaves change colors in autumn. After I realized what it meant, I liked it and I asked her if I can try to make it into a song. When I showed her the first draft, Momoko offered to rewrite it; this is the result. I’m greatly honored to collaborate with her.

Momone Momo and Kasane Teto are voicebank modules for the UTAU singing speech synthesizer.

秋になる

紅に(黄金に)
染まる(みどり)
風に(舞い散りゆく)
不思議

きっと、世界が回る
きっと、地球が回る

季節は巡り
織り成す色彩
揺らめく心に
うつろう命よ

Aki ni naru,

Aka ni (kin’ni)
Somaru (midori)
Kaze ni (mai chiri yuku)
Fushigi

Kitto, sekai ga mawaru
Kitto, chikyuu ga mawaru

Kisetsu wa meguri
Ori nasu shikisai
Yurameku kokoro ni
Utsurou inochi yo

In autumn,

Red to (gold,)
Colored from (green,)
The wind (breaks and dances, dying,)
Mystery…

Certainly, the world turns
Certainly, the Earth turns

Seasons circulate
Weaving colors
Flickering hearts
Moving lives
