Description

AZITAMATEISHOKU is a Touhou Project band arrangement circle consisting of sole member 味付け玉子. The circle's arrangement style strikes an uncommon balance between loyalty to ZUN's original composition and the addition of original elements, this results in arrangements that do much more than supplant melodies into an already fleshed out piece of music. Instead, arrangements by the circle are often integrally structured around these original melodies, translating their feeling and movement into a Rock arrangement, song structuring tools such as bridges and transitions often act as the only additional elements. The circle's musical style itself has remained largely unchanged with their discography being composed primarily of their characteristic vocal focused thrashy Rock arrangements, with the occasional Rock ballad or instrumental opening track sprinkled throughout. 味付け玉子 himself performs the guitar and bass parts In addition to handling the mix and mastering himself, this has resulted in a gradual improvement to the recording and sound quality in his works since he first began releasing music on niconico in 08'. Albums by the circle will often feature arrangements of themes from a single game or arrangements of themes associated with specific characters, later releases would even feature uncommonly arranged themes such as the title screen, ending & staffroll themes (for example CRIMSONEAR, which features arrangements of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil's 紅より儚い永遠 and 赤より紅い夢).

All of AZITAMATEISHOKU's early discography going as far back as their first release (AZITAMASPARK!!) up until the 2011 album little good-bye has been re-recorded for albums later in their discography, these early releases were shorter than what would become the standard for them and often featured 6 or fewer tracks. It wasn't until the released of 月の追憶 in 2012 that the circle graduated from shorter 6 track albums to more fleshed out full length albums, because of this transition, releases from 2012 and onward had room to accommodate not only uncommonly arranged themes but also unlisted bonus tracks which began appearing infrequently from then on. Illustrations for the circle's albums have been provided primarily by artist ヒヂノタキ of ヒヂノイズ (twitter, pixiv) who's art appeared on almost every album released by the circle up until mid 2016. In addition to the circle's own releases they have also contributed a great number of guest arrangements to various collaboration/compilation albums (see guest arrangement section), a sizable percentage of which are arrangements of themes associated with Alice Margatroid.

味付け玉子 is admittedly a huge fan of Touhou Project character Alice Margatroid who's themes his circle has arranged numerous times, he has even released albums themed entirely around her such as SHE IS ALICE! and Hers. as well as contributing to a 4 part seasonal themed Alice Margatroid project called 季刊Alice (see other works section). 味付け玉子 has also performed his music for a live audience on several occasions with the support of AZITAMATEISHOKU's live band 音戦玉子 (ON-SEN TAMA), in 2016 he began work on a new Touhou arrangement circle called green sky, it notably features female vocals and arrangements styles both in the same vane as his original circle and in styles unexplored by his original circle.
