[Scans+Trans] 26.02.2011 ViVi Deji Deji Diary Vol. 127

26 Feb

Full Scans + Translation from ViVi Deji Deji Diary Vol. 127

Hello. ⇈ How is everyone? This is ayu, who has been living in LA recently. ✌ This life here is really super slow♪ going~♪ That’s why, I’ll be super active when I get back to Tokyo. This month, I want to bring to you photos of the baby fans who came to support me in the US!! I’m also including photos of my favourite studio and record plant, where I do work——!! And with that, let’s start this Deji Deji Diary ♡♡

Caption: Writing……

Everyone, thank you so much for always being so lively and waiting outside the studio for me ♡ No matter how exhausted I feel, seeing all your smiling faces immediately gives me a power charge!! And then, for always saying “See you tomorrow~♪” when we part. It makes me know that there will always be someone, other than myself, existing tomorrow, in the future, and that is very precious to me.

Caption: Yosh!
During recordings, I always go barefoot. When it’s cold, I will put on a pair of slippers, but when I notice them, I take them off anyway… Whenever I sing, I always sweat so much!! That’s why!! I always go to the studio with a change of clothes– ♪
Without these people, Hamasaki Ayumi’s music will not exist. Thank you so much for everything!! Director Kome and genius arranger Nobita. (Of course, CMJK-san is included in my list too ♡♡)
Caption: I received so many presents. Thank you ♪
Caption: Let’s meet again in the next issue~ ♪ Giggle~ ♪

[Trans] 13.02.2011 Nobita Blogs About Ayu’s Love songs Album 27th December 2010 Entry

13 Feb

**Nobita is one of Ayu’s Music Arranger.

Hamasaki Ayumi album 『Love songs』 in LA
27 December 2010. 7:18pm

This is regarding AYU-san’s new album 『Love songs』, which was released on 22 December.

This was a work which was made in the 1 month we spent in LA.

Love song

AYU-san’s comment for this was “The base for the album this time will be this piece called Love song. Please pay special attention to it!” Saying this, she passed me Komuro-san’s demo song, and so the arranging process began.
With the title “Love song” and Komuro-san’s melody, I plumped out the concept and arranged this song.
For me, Love song has a deeper meaning of being “something which any generation of people can relate to”.
And that was how the first and last parts of the song had the classical feel to it.

Digressing a little, I ordered the acoustic guitar player, Mr Eric, to play his track, while keeping an image of AYU-san singing and strumming the guitar herself in mind. This was to create an image of a singer playing her own accompaniment.

sending mail

This song used to have an original drum track, but under AYU-san’s orders, it was replayed live, and so that turned this into a rock song. The back part of the song is intentionally messed up, to reflect the complicated and uncertain mind of the singer. The strings had a little dangerous phrase there too.

Thank U

I like this song. I arranged this song with the lyrics on hand, and they gave me a warm feeling, reminding me of those who are important to me, and that was worked into the arrangement.
Doesn’t the part which couldn’t be put into words still manage to fill your heart somehow?

do it again

This song illustrates the light and dark sides of chasing a dream. Against the pure youthfulness of SEVEN DAYS WAR, do it again was arranged with another image in mind. In the process of becoming an adult, there may be despair and uncertainty hiding behind the happiness. But even so, there is a single ray of light, thin but straight, that leads you to your dream.

That sort of became a long essay. Sorry. (sweatdrop)
