MUSIC AS MAGIC!! Singer Songwriter Mellow Symphony's Blog


Dance, Dance, Dance!

Joined the music video shooting of Belle & Sebastian as an extra. I had so much fun. I went to a venue in the morning, then I had been dancing all day long. Dancing and waiting were the most of my task. The crew was all nice. The other extras were mostly nice. We really enjoyed dancing and chatting together. I had a great experience. One of my excited moment was that we danced with professional ballet dancers. They were all coming from the National Ballet of Canada. Their dances were incredible. They jumped super high. Their hands, arms and legs moved sensitively and smoothly. And they were friendly. That was the beauty! It was touching moment for me to watch their dance and even dance with us.
The new song that we danced with will be going on sale around January 2015. The song was also good, of course. The vocal makes the distinct taste of the band. And the arrangement of strings, percussion, harmonies. That's the Belle & Sebastian sound.
Oh, I wish I could take a picture with them. There was a Japanese dancer in the professional team. She was amazing!
The most biggest thing is that we all moved to shoot the video without the band. The music makes them moved!



昨日は、The groove bar & the Grillでライブでした。来てくれた皆さん、聴いてくれた皆さん、ありがとうございました。
昨日は、Open Micではありつつも、今までと違い「featuring artist」という形で用意してもらった枠を使ってライブが出来たので、時間もたっぷり、僕もリラックスしてやることが出来たと思います。

という感じでした。せっかくのOpen Micということで、僕も普段なかなか会う機会のないアーティスト系の友達にも声を掛けたりすることが出来ました。忙しい中、演奏しに来てくれたり、演奏は出来ないけど聴きに来てくれたり、謎の詩の朗読に来てくれたり(?)、終わりに一緒にセッションしたり、楽しい夜になったと思います。





Subway and Coffee

I tend to fall asleep when I'm on the subway. This is a kind of my habit since I was in Tokyo.
From autumn to winter, the temperatures gradually goes down. At the same time, TTC starts to put their heaters on. That makes me easy to fall asleep.
So I've got to have a cup of coffee to stimulte myself after I get off.
And to have some coffee sometines reminds me of my friend who is crazy about to coffee. But he doesn't drink coffee as black. He always needs some sugar and milk to drink because it tastes bitter.
