Review

First CD of 弾奏結界 -Symphony from the Sanctuary- compilation from どぶウサギ (Dobu Usagi - 'Fat Rabbit' literally)

As this 4-album compilation was released after Imperishable Night, sound tones are tuned to the IN's atmosphere. (rather than EoSD's MIDI-ish tones or PCB's high-pitched screaming tones)

General characteristics of Dobu Usagi's arrangements are 'Faithful representation of original scores, with variable tempos'. Usually Dobu Usagi does not miss single note of original melody.

As this first album faithfully represents the EoSD's key compositions with highly polished instruments, fans of EoSD may find this CD to be very attractive.


Standout tracks

02. Devil's Go Through the Night
Nice opening track. Clear synthesizer sound with powerful drumming

04. 上海紅茶館 ~ Chinese Tea
Feels like sitting in a sweet cafe with small orchestra playing behind. peaceful

07. メイドの血と過去を刻む懐中時計
Not as great as in Fragile Online's 東方と戦慄, but nice.


Recommended to :

  • Fans of original EoSD's musics
  • Anyone who didn't like the instrumentation of original EoSD

Not recommended to :

  • Anyone who likes heavily-arranged albums (techno-ish or whatever)

Liner Notes

ども、はじめまして。どぶウサギです。この度は「紅魔狂詩曲 Scarlet Rapsodia」をてにとっていただき誠にありがとうごさいます。
以下簡単に各曲に対する想いとういか妄想など蛇足感たっぷりに書き連ねておきます。それでは激しくも甘美なる楽曲の数々をお楽しみください。

  • Greetings. it's Dobu Usagi. Thanks very much for choosing [紅魔狂詩曲 Scarlet Rapsodia]. Below is image, or delusions or random feelings, of each songs. Please enjoy this intense, sweet tracks.


01. the Dream of Scarlet
とある吸血鬼の我侭からてんやわんやの大騒動に。我侭を音楽にするとこんな感じ?

  • A vampire lady's selfishness introduces great troubles. Should selfishness sound like this one?


02. Devil's Go Through the Night
夜魔夜行、妖怪は人間を食う為に、人間は妖怪を退治する為に夜を行く。どっちも物騒です。

  • Youkai are to eat the human, Human are to hunt the Youkai, they go throught the night. How dangerous.


03. おてんば恋娘 ~ the Foolish Girl
馬鹿っぽさとボスっぽさを狙ったアレンジ。といいつつも馬鹿っぽさはわりと控えめかなぁ。

  • An arrangement focused on foolishness and boss-ness. But with foolishness discounted


04. 上海紅茶館 ~ Chinese Tea
夕暮れ時だというのに紅茶を飲んで一息。忙しい時ほど息抜きは大切。

  • Tea break on a sunset. Rest is still important in busy times.


05. 明治十七年の上海少女
極彩色も時が経てばセピア色。祖界に生きる上海少女は何を見たか。

  • Brilliant colors become sepia as time goes by. A Shanghai girl lives in concession, what did she see?


06. 少女密室 ~ the Locked Girl
本当に閉ざされているのは部屋ではなく少女の心。少女自身、必死で扉を開けようとしているに達いない。

  • The one that's really locked is not the door, it's her mind. She tries hard to open the door, but she couldn't.


07. メイドの血と過去を刻む懐中時計
図書館を抜けると紅い絨毯の廊下が「無限に」続いていた。時間と空間には相互関係がある。メイドと懐中時計にも。

  • Outside the library, an [infinite] corridor with red carpet appears. There exists a compatibility between time and space. So is between maid and pocket watch.


08. 月時計 ~ Lunar Dial
時間を止めた本人以外は時間が止まったことに気付かない。時が凍った世界はもうミスディレクションだ。

  • No one except the one who stopped the clock, will notice the time has stopped. A world with frozen clock, is already a misdirection.


09. 亡き王女の為のセクテット
管弦楽六重奏葬送曲。でも楽器の奏法が全く分らないのでかなり無茶してるかも。

  • A sixtet funeral march. But as I don't know about the instruments, maybe it's nonsense.


10. 亡き王女の為のデジロック
いや、あんまりデジロックじゃないです (ぇ。自分の理想を貫くには戦いで決着をつけるしかない。

  • Uhh, it's not so digi-rock. To fulfill one's ideal, one should fight until the end.


11. 紅楼 ~ Scarlet in the Dream
遊びつかれて眠りにつく少女が見る夢は今日新しくできた友達と遊ぶ夢?

  • A sleeping girl, will she dream about playing with her new friends?


12. 紅魔狂死曲 ~UNknown Girl
テンポが速くなったり遅くなったり聴いてて忙しない曲。コイン一個に命を賭けるとは危険すぎるし面白すぎる。

  • Listener may feel busy as its tempo goes up and down. To bet one's life in single coin is overly dangerous, yet overly exciting.
