[Secret story of collaboration music]
On August 8th, it was recorded at a live house in Yokohama. The only members who participated in this recording are the core members of Shibu Sachizu. What’s more, it became a very special organization because the band master, Fuwa, played the bass himself. Before the recording, the members of the waikibiki producer said, “Please play with the image that Shibu Sachizu is in the Koshien Alps stand …” the members laughed, “What is it?” Speaking of Koshien’s support, it is a brass band. However, if you perform too much of the brass band’s sound, you will lose the “feeling of astringency”. On the other hand, if you give too much “feeling of astringency”, there is a possibility of moving away from the image of Koshien. The key to this performance was how to achieve this delicate balance. “Fight on the corner” used in defensive inning is a song with a tension that seems to fit perfectly in a pitching game with a short breath. “Do you want to slow down BPM because it is a defensive song?” “Because I want to match the tempo of the game, enter the drum early.” Mr. Fuwa will direct the performance direction while directing. As a result of playing about 7 to 8 takes, a performance that takes advantage of unison like astringent wisdom has become a form while suppressing the ad-lib element conscious of the brass band. The recording of “Honda’s theme” and “P-chan” proceeded smoothly, and the recording of all songs was completed in about 3 hours. In order to complete a sound source that beautifully expresses an unprecedented theme of “Koshien” × “Shibutsu Shizuru”, the cotton-drawn producer seemed to feel that “this is perfect for the game!” Thank you very much to all the members of Shibu Sachizu who played happily from the beginning to the end! I want to see your performance at the real Koshien Stadium someday!
[Comment from Keita Wataiki, producer of “Our Koshien! Pocket”]
The brass band’s big cheering team is indispensable for high school baseball games. Enthusiastic performance further enhances the dramatic game development. While listening to the performance of Koshien’s brass band, the dream of collaboration was the dream of “If Shibu Sachizu’s music was played in the Koshien Alps, it would be the best”. For this collaboration, we had a special performance and recording of popular songs including “Honda’s Theme”, and a wonderful sound source that perfectly matched the game was completed. Be sure to play “Our Koshien! Pocket” and aim to win Koshien while enjoying the music of “Shibu Sachizu”!
[About “Shibutsu Shizuru”]
In September 1989, the first live performance was performed mainly by Daisuke Fuwa. Although it is a large band based on free jazz, it is active not only in orchestra organization but also in medium and small organizations. Play accompaniment has become one of the starting points, so theatrical feeling is strong. There are various elements such as jazz, rock, folk and pop songs in the performance, and the music refuses genre division. The stage is composed of musicians, dancers, dancers, performers, video, etc., and it is described as a festive band because it is a series of simultaneous “events” that enthuse the audience. FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL (Sun), SUMMER SONIC (Sun), GLASTONBURY FESTIVALS (UK), MOERS FESTIVAL (Germany), ROCCELLA (Italy), NANTES (France), QUEBEC (Canada) Received high acclaim and performed several long-term European tours, festivals and solo performances.
