Together with lyricist RUCCA, I want to create music content for women that reminds us of the “dawn of a new era” centered on EDM. How many years has it been since I came up with this idea?
The Technoroid project started with a consultation with Tanaka Hiroyuki, a producer at CyberAgent and a close friend of mine from “Dance with Devils”, and finally, finally, we can announce this!
I believe that the appeal of EDM music is that it is “a genre of music that can be used worldwide,” and EDM has been behind the hits of Korean artists that are in season right now.
I thought that if I could get RUCCA, a lyricist who is a magician of words, to express the story of a vocal android who struggles with “the meaning of life”, I could create something incredibly interesting, so I started working mainly with Kikuta Daisuke, the EDM leader, from Elements Garden to create sounds.
At first, I thought I’d just leave it to these two guys……, but the project sounded so interesting that I ended up asking Kikuta to “let me write a song for it,” even though I had only drafted the title and was going to keep an eye on it.
That’s how attractive the pictures, the story, and the team technoid created by Tanaka-san are turning out to be.
EDM music for a new era.
I’m very happy to be able to open the door to a new work of art with you all!
【RUCCA】Four years ago, I received a proposal from Elements Garden, with whom I have worked on many music projects, “How about writing a story about music from scratch?” That’s when I started working on “Technoroid”.
I felt a lot of pressure to write the entire story, from the original idea to the lyrics, but I was able to put in all the essence that only I could write.
What kind of characters would make the song appealing? After much deliberation, I came up with the answer: “androids.” I still remember that Agematsu Noriyasu-san immediately agreed with me.
The appeal of this work is the story of “the emotional growth of androids through song” and the variety of songs performed by the characters with rich personalities.
Since many units appear in the story, there is a wide variety of music genres, and I have put all my experience in lyric writing into this work without any compromise.
These “androids” never stop growing. As a lyricist, I want to show my eagerness to keep seeking out new things so that I can keep up with them. Please look forward to it.
【LAM】Congratulations on the announcement of the Technoroid project!
I’m also happy to finally be able to unveil it.
Androids are the main characters in this work.
At first glance, they appear to be human, but they have many of the characteristics and traits of androids.
However, despite their inorganic aspect as robots, they learn a lot from this world.
I hope I was able to express even a little bit of the variety and charm of these people.
Please look forward to a new world where androids, music, idols, and various other elements are woven together!
