It's Japanese, because it's Touhou (Eastern). No, really.
However, it's not like the game is (^^;
This doesn't sound like a shooting game piece.
Furthermore, is a title theme really necessary at all? :)
I actually did think of a dim-witted girl for this.
However, I don't know if what came out can be considered
bright or dark. The tempo is pretty fast, but...
Well, it's stage 2. (ha)
Stage 3 theme
上海紅茶館 ～ Chinese Tea
Shanghai Teahouse ~ Chinese Tea
Fusionというより New Age風かな？
Stage 3 theme.
I intended to make it more Chinese, but it didn't quite
work out. (^^; However it's still Oriental, because I knew
it would be hard to put Oriental songs past stage 4 (^^;
It's more New Age rather than Fusion, I guess?
A hint of Europe, mixed with game music. (a 2:8 ratio)
It's strange that it's not more Chinese, but that's because
it's composed with the image of the French settlement in
Shanghai in mind. But, Meirin looks like she's not human.
Then what is she... (eh)
Stage 4 theme. From here, the game moves indoors, so it's
composed with indoor atmospheres in mind. Its tone shifts to
something more ominous halfway through the song, where you
would normally meet the mid-stage boss.
Other than that, there's nothing special about this theme,
but really, it's not a shooting game piece :)
Again with this sick feeling...
It's a dark song, without any light or bright moments,
despite its quite fast-paced nature.
It could stand to be a little less heavy, as listening
to this piece could drag someone down :)
A very mysterious song. Its unusual beat toys with
your sense of speed, sometimes seeming to go faster.
I was trying for a rock piece, but as I don't listen
to rock much, it's quite possible that I have no
idea what I'm doing (^^;
With this, I tried for a "This is the end!" feeling.
I didn't want it to be regal or ominous, which is normal for
a final stage, so I made it Jazz-Fusion based with a hint of
loli... wait, that's not any different than normal.
Its melody is easy for even me to get, so I like this song.
Sometimes it's Chinese, sometimes it's New Age. Why?
This is what happens after messing with my keyboard.
It's like an accumulation of my laziness. If you listen
closely, there are many strange rhythms in this song.
In other words, my toy-box.
I liked this one the best out of the whole game. It
depicts a devilish girl in an Oriental and mysterious way.
Loli-tastic melodies like this are what I'm best at, so I
had a lot of fun composing this.
The staff roll has always been dark and desperate, so I
made it a bit more happy and hopeful this time. I think.
As the staff list is always short, I couldn't write a long
piece. I could have made it more magnificent, but it ended up
a little dry. That was not my intention (heh)
