--Takashi Mori's comment --

Finally, I could complete and release my songs on digital distribution as first EP.
Though it took very long time (ten years or more!) to release for only three songs I could have wonderful encounter with great artists thanks to "ten years".

When "myspace music" was active (I think it's in mid-2000s) I uploaded three songs as demo-tracks on that. Although I was not so interested in a kind of "SNS" then, about "Myspace music", I thought that is very useful site for me especially to meet with artist who lives in another country.
And it was epoch-making and big help of encounter that the user can listen to unknown person's work instantly on Myspace.

Anyway, by "music player" on myspace music, I could get the chance to meet or collaborate with great foreign artists, and we could make wonderful friendly relations each other through the music.
Rhys Marsh, Maria Castro, Hector Zazou, Lorenzo Scopelliti (Saffron Wood), Ingrid Chavez, maximilien zaganelli (Nine Years) ……
I think that I never could meet these wonderful persons without my three "demo-tracks".

In that same period, the "three songs" was played on Ryuichi Sakamoto's Japanese radio program "Radio Sakamoto" by his own selection fortuitously.
It was very honorable, because I was affected very much by the early work of YMO (especially "TECHNODELIC") and my favorite song of Hector Zazou (he is an artist whom I respect most) "Ophélie" is by Ryuichi's beautiful piano accompaniment.
It was also miraculously that Ingrid Chavez ever took part in Ryuichi's collaboration song with David Sylvian "Heart Beat". (To tell the truth, though I got to know about that after I met with Ingrid..)

I was also able to meet the wonderful Japanese artists through "Radio Sakamoto".
"antennasia" "Bajune Tobeta" ...and All musicians in the charity album for Tohoku Earthquake "Artist Action" (produced by Bajune Tobeta).

I have many great encounter everyday as drummer, recording engineer.
However, this encounter through my three "demo songs" is particularly impressive.

I'm happy, if you could enjoy listening to my "brand new" tracks!

Shelter

water mirror
shows what I look like now
and whatever I am, I am me.
something is missing
it was missing always it was
I can't find what it was

when I look up to the sky
there is a sky ,just sky
whan i think of you,you were so cold like mid winter blue
and finaly I reached answer,it's so right
I am free coz I am ,,,I am free coz I am,,,,,I'm nothing.

water shelter
is rapping me like cotton
I'm feeling like dreaming heaven
noone annoy me
can't even touch me
I am in the shelter

when I look up to the sky
there is a sky ,just sky
whan i think of you,you were so cold like mid winter blue
and finaly I reached answer,it's so right
I am free coz I am ,,,I am free coz I am,,,,,I'm nothing.



Spin

high and low
go round & round & spin
withdrew my gaze
pressed down the lid

draw a line
you rim yourself
call my name
hurt me to death

--- it's blink to fly ---
--- it's ease to cry ---

things are hard
love is simple
sacrifice
all of you
life is short
drop into yourself
love is bloom
a varnish not to die

--- it's blink to fly ---
--- it's ease to cry ---

high and low
go round & round & spin
withdrew my gaze
pressed down the lid

draw a line
you rim yourself
call my name
hurt me to death
