Hi All,

This is my new song titled "Invitation to Impressive Scenery". By the title I meant that the song would guide listeners to impressive scenery images in their mind.

The song is divided into 5 parts; 5 different instruments are assigned to each of them with 5 different styles. The first and last parts are accompanied by guitar solo and piano solo respectively . The other three parts between them are accompanied by the full band.

For the songs I had posted so far, I used MIDI tracks only except drums. This time, however, I have used only Real Tracks except the melody track.

You can find the song at the following address.

https://soundcloud.com/hirokata1121/invitation-to-impressive-scenery

I hope you enjoy it.

Lastly, I would like to thank those who listened to my previous songs "First Love" and gave me valuable comments. Though I had not expected that the Japanese vocal version would be well received by the forum members, it turned out I was wrong. I will continue posting Japanese vocal songs when they are available.

Another very gentle song, HiroshiK. Nice oriental style for sure.

Hi VideoTrack,

Thank you for your comment. Oriental style? My wife said the same thing (Japanese style). Maybe I am the only one that do not notice it smile .

Hi Hiroshi,

very nice melody. I liked the
variations. For me it sounds quite
European.
Enjoyable listen.

Hi Guenter,

Thank you for your comment. I am glad you enjoyed my new song's melody. I am also pleased to know that it sounds quite European for you. It is because I did not intend to write Japanese style music, different from my previous song.

Hiroshi

Hiroshi,

This is really pretty music. I like the minor key sound... it's haunting, gentle and pastoral all at the same time.... a pleasure to listen to.

All the best,
Noel

P.S. Don't stop posting your songs in Japanese. I really enjoy listening to lyrics in other languages. Because I can't understand the words, all I hear is how the vowels and consonants flow and I like the effect it creates smile

Noel,

Thank you for your comment. I am happy that you like my song. Your kind words really encouraged me.

I understand what you mean. I am absolutely in the same situation when I listen to non-Japanese songs including English songs. Even for Japanese songs, in many cases, I forget to follow lyrics and rather concentrate on following melody or harmony. Probably, this is the reason most classical operas like Mozart's were written in Italian.

I am preparing a very Japanese-style vocal song as my next post. I hope you will like it.

Hiroshi

Hiroshi,

that is beautiful.
Music is a universal language and there are no boundaries.
I don't analyse music I either like it or don't.
BUT I LIKE what you produce so keep them coming. laugh

Beautifully done Hiroshi!
We can easily picture ourselves walking in one of those beautiful Japanese gardens, which we only know from the pictures so far....however there are a few of them in Holland, for instance in The Hague
