I'm Satomi♪

Good evening!
I'm Satomi, the oboist!

This is the first time that I am writing in Lacroix's blog.
Nice to meet you! m(__)m
On the other hand, I think that the oboe is not a musical instrument as common as other instruments, so I will introduce it.
The Oboe belongs to woodwind family.
The principal characteristic is that it is played with the mouth.
It produces sound because of its two reeds.
This kind of musical instrument is called a "double reed instruments". Also in this family of instruments is the bassoon.

This is my reed.
A lot of oboists make their own reeds or adapt the reed to suit them.
I make the reeds myself too.
On another occasion, I will talk about reeds again.

About the oboe's sound, its possible that a lot of people can't identify it immediately but, can you remember the melody of the beginning of "Swan Lake"?
This is a oboe solo!!
Swan Lake part 1

In orchestra's songs there is a lot of melodies/solos played by oboe.
Oboes can be heard in a lot of Soundtracks for films, dramas and musicals.
Recently, it became famous in the piece when Mr. Miyamoto Fumiaki plays: "Kazabue".
Because of "Nodame Cantabile", Mozart's oboe concert became popular too.

Kazabue

Mozart Oboe concerto (Nodame Cantabile version)

Please search for other oboe melodies!!

In Lacroix Despheres' live performances, I will do my best to transmit the oboe sound!!
See you!!

Ouverture de la Soirée - Translation

In this season when moonlight brightens the surface of water
The door to the masquerade colored by darkness opens
At this night, I have not been able to stay alone
Being held be the gorgeous sound, eternity passes

In the long dream, my feeling slightly glittering keeps tempting you

Come to the beautiful night, Wrap the memory now
The overlapped wish flies up to the sky,
and the meeting dremed of goes under the moonlit
Come, sweet sound
along with the neverending feelings

In the long dream, my feeling slightly glittering keeps tempting you

Come to the beautiful night, Wrap the memory now
The overlapped wish flies up to the sky,
and the meeting dremed of goes under the moonlit
Come, sweet sound
with the neverending feelings

The sounds played are play of light
Till the days when it shines the eyes wavering far away...

In faint time, putting this sad feelings swaying vaguely on this song

Come to the beautiful night, Wrap the memory now
Come, sweet sound
along with the neverending feelings

If you melt the entwined melodies together,
dance as the destinies echoing at each other leads

Fiore - Translation

You, who is blooming in the falling light, are beautiful
Watching you while being held by the endless sky

Glittering song Gentle melody
The melody that the wind whispers
led me to this place
and is tempting to the very end of the memory, Fiore...

Ring the white bell and sing
The eternally encraved melody will grasp the cloud
and direct toward beyond the sky at night where moonlight dances...

Slowly going up the stairs lasting forever,
widening scenery in front of you colors the sly


Carrying out the memory of sadness with clouds
that are swinging at the end of the sky
The feelings played are always Fiore...
With the wings like a blue bird
I can fly to the place where you are waiting
To the end of the sky that continues to your familiar smile...

Widening the wings and flying to this night,
to the distant world together with the fallen angels some day...

With the wings like a blue bird
I can fly to the place where you are waiting
To the end of the sky that continues to your familiar smile...

The night breeze of blue clearness
draws out the stars over this sky
and takes the smiles continuing to the end of the dream to the sky...

Scivias (Kanji&Romaji)

木霊のざわめき 惑わせしはこの歌 懐かしき声 響かせるは誰が故?

“Find me, Find me please! I’m here… Where am I? Darkness… Silence… Where?
Take me! Take me out forth.”

この歌声 聞こえるところに 何か答えが
今すぐそこに向かい 確かめなくては
古の刻より伝わる物を求めて
私のこの想いの果てを求めて

忘れられた部屋 導かれて見つけた… 切り刻まれた本! 誰が何のために?
この場所… この景色… ようやく見つけられた! どこかにあの人の物が…

“Someone tore me and took me… Took me of the half!
Take back. Get back please. To save. To save his will.”

誰かがこの部屋に入り探したのね
あの人残した楽譜を今も求める誰かが!
一体、誰がこんな事をしたのか…
必ず追い続ける 今も求める誰かを!

この想いを確かに 受け継ぐ者たちよ
あのときの記憶を 断ち切ること無きように


この想いを確かに 受け継ぐ者たちよ
あのときの記憶を 未来へと託すため

あの秘密を求め 向かい来る誰かに
いまこそ立ち向かえ 断ち切ること無きように
託すために!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kodama no zawameki madowaseshi wa kono uta natsukashiki koe hibikaseru wa ta ga tame?

“Find me, Find me please! I’m here… Where am I? Darkness… Silence… Where?
Take me! Take me out forth.”

Kono utagoe kikoeru tokoro ni nani ka kotae ga
Imasugu soko ni mukai tashikamenakute wa
Inishie no toki yori tsutawaru mono wo motomete
Watashi no kono omoi no hate wo motomete

Wasurerareta heya michibiarete mitsuketa… kirikizamareta hon! dare ga nan no tame ni?
Kono basho… kono keshiki… youyaku mitsukerareta! Doko ka ni ano hito no mono ga…

“Someone tore me and took me… Took me of the half!
Take back. Get back please. To save. To save his will.”

Dareka ga kono heya ni hairi sagashita no ne
Ano hito nokoshita gakufu wo ima mo motomeru dare ka ga!
Ittai, dare ga konna koto wo shita no ka…
Kanarazu oitsudsukeru ima mo motomeru dareka wo!

Kono omoi wo tashika ni uketsugu monotachi yo
Ano toki no kioku wo tachikiru koto naki youni

Kono omoi wo tashika ni uketsugu monotachi yo
Ano toki no kioku wo mirai he to takusu tame

Ano himitsu wo motome mukai kuru dareka ni
Imakoso tachi mukae tachikiru koto naki youni
takusu tame ni!

Love Never Dies

Hello, I’m Sho!

Today, casually I came in to a CD shop, there I found a CD that get my attention!

The phantom of the opera 2 ~Love Never dies~Andrew Lloyd-Webber

オペラ座の怪人2~ラヴ・ネヴァー・ダイズ/アンドリュー・ロイド・ウェバー

¥3,800

Amazon.co.jp


There is a sequel and I have not noticed!?

I talked about that before, when I was in S.Q.F’s radio program. I love the Andrew Lloyd-Webber musical pieces!!アップ


However, until now did not know the existence of this piece~~あせる


Investigating, I discovered that the performances began this year on March in London.音譜

I’ve listened some songs on the official site and on the site to buy the CD, but as I expected from Andrew Lloyd-Webber, his songs are like a treasure of beautiful melodies, I want to appreciate them in live.ひらめき電球

Especially this song that the phantom sings, it made me cry of emotion.目



They will be represented until October approximately, I will dare to go to London to appreciate it (laughs)

I wish that someday Shiki company decides to perform it in Japan. ニコニコ

However, it was so good go to the CD shop fortuitously!!

Because if not gone, yet I would not have realized to the existence of this pieceビックリマーク


From now on I will do my best for create beautiful pieces too.グー

Karaoke~

Hello, I'm Sho!

So long without updating the blog.

Recently, was the recording and I've wrote a new song at the same time.

I managed the new costumes too. There were a very productive days about Lacroix Despheres' matters.

I was preparing the accessories for the photography session. Every day is hot..
Take care for the hotwave please!


Well, Pegeot wrote about that too in the blog, but days ago was starting to distribute more Lacroix's songs to the karaokes.

Thank so much for voting!

Now, Scivias and Inishie are sharing out, it seems that from 28th July we'll add Fiore and Iris too.

By the way, days ago I went to a karaoke. Long time without going to the karaoke. Now the karaokes are amazing!
They are amazing because there are a correction and qualification function. Indicates the difference of the melody and your singing tone on the screen. When you finished the song, you can listen to your singing again!
On the other hand, if you don't have a camera Σ(・□・;)
You can record a video while you are singing!
Apparently, there is a duet-song video wich you can sing with a strange man that appears in the video...
It's possible that we will prepare an official Lacroix duet video! (Laughs)

Anyway, recently is incredible too the evolution to sincronice the animation.
Speaking of which, harmonized vocal is originally recorded in recent karaoke, but I wonder if there is still a function to record our own singing and use it as an automatic harmonized vocal.
Hey, the function was funny because when I was singing, a male solemn chorus suddenly appeared . (Laughs)
In conclusion, for exceed the hot summer sing Lacroix songs on the karaoke please!

La vérité fermée (Kanji&Romaji)

ぎ澄まされた空虚のその中で 揺れる想いを永久に重ねた

夢に宿るは幾多のきらめき 貴方の想いは過去に消えたわ

神よこの私を導き給え! この深き暗闇の中に光を!
この人を導き給え! 全ては貴方の為・・・

「月の光に導かれ 彷徨い歩き続けてきたが、
いつからか私の心の奥底に深い暗闇が潜んでいた。」

記憶の彼方に眠る光よ 今、目覚めよ
奏でる世界へ飛び立てる夜に
輝ける翼を広げて

“Vive menor mortis.
Dum veneris judicare saeculum,
Tremens factus sum ego, dum discussio venerit.”

「いつも聞こえてくるこの歌声
儚くも懐かしい夜の調べは あの日の記憶を包み込んでいく
今宵も私はこの夜の調べを聴きながら
やさしい月の幻想と共に
柔らかい光に包まれた夜明けを待ち続けている」

月の光が私を惑わすのか?
おろかなあなたを導く
この胸に響き渡る声は遠い記憶を呼び覚ますよう
いつもどこかでみつめているの

風はざわめき木立は揺さぶられ 
遠いあの日に何かが起こった
この世界に広がる闇は夢の記憶をもたらすでしょう
誰も事の真実を教えてくれぬのか

神よこの私に過去の記憶を! この深き絶望の淵に光を!
この人に過去の記憶を! 全ては貴方の為・・・

「あなたはあの日犯してしまった過ちに縛られ続けている。
その呪縛から逃れることなど出来ないわ。
ただ一つの方法を除いては・・・。」

記憶の彼方に眠る光よ 今、目覚めよ
奏でる世界へ飛び立てる夜に 輝ける翼を広げて
幾重にも舞う光よ 今、この手に
無くした世界を取り戻すために 輝ける翼を広げて
