Music List[edit]

Title screen theme
怪綺談 ~ Mystic Square
Bizarre Romantic Story ~ Mystic Square

あいかわらずのタイトルテーマです。 この曲は、今回のゲームの曲の方向性を決めた曲なのです。 悪くはないんじゃないかな(^^

The usual title theme. This is the song that really determined the direction of the rest of the game's music. Not bad, huh? (^^

Stage 1 theme
Dream Express Dream Express

今回は、若干軽快な曲です。 珍しく(^^;; 東方ということを意識して作りました。 Dream Express 夢特急ということでサビの疾走感を堪能ください。

This is a fairly rhythmical song. This song was made with the express intent of using it in a Touhou game, for once. (^^; I hope you'll enjoy the rushing feeling of the Dream Express during the hook.

東方怪綺談より【 Dream Express 】です。

これは、色々と思い出深い曲です。 そもそも、4作目に当たる東方幻想郷が最終作の予定だったので、幻想郷発売の夏コミで これで同人稼業ともおさらばと思っていたのですが、幻想郷の売れ行きが思った以上によ かったことと、幻想郷の一面テーマ曲があまりに暗い曲だったことがどうしても納得いか ず、帰りの電車の中で生まれた曲が、この【 Dream Express 】です。


 この曲のおかげて、夏から冬に短期間にまた一本創る決心してしまった。 (夢時空の悪夢再び(^^;) というか、結局同人から足を洗ってないし(ぉ

曲はハードロック気味、ジャズフュージョンといったものを目指してあります。 今回のピアノ部分やサブメロディは、ジャズの複雑なメロディを自分風にアレ ンジしてみました。 複雑なサブメロディをバックに、わかりやすいメインメロディ+軽快なドラム。 これが、東方曲の基本だったに違いない。

この曲は、感慨深い... いや、ほんとに。


この曲も暗いぞ(爆) さらに、秋霜玉のフォルスストロベリーはもっと暗いぞ(呪殺)

Thank you for downloading this song.

This is "Dream Express" for Mystic Square.

This song is full of all kinds of memories. I had planned on making Lotus Land Story the final game when I released it, and making it my swan song to the doujin community at that Summer Comiket, but it sold a lot better than I expected. That led me to not really being satisfied with the first stage theme of that song being too dark, so on the train home after the event, I came up with this song.

The song's title is more fitting than you might think.

Thanks to this song, I was determined to release another game in the short time between Summer and Winter Comikets (although ended up reliving the nightmare when I was making PoDD (^^;), and so I wasn't able to cleanse my hands of the whole doujin thing just yet.

I tried to make this song jazz fusion with a dash of hard rock. The sub-melody in the piano is my own style of complex jazz, and then I set up a simpler main melody and upbeat drum rhythm against that complicated backing. This is without a doubt the basic idea behind all Touhou songs.

It's a very moving song... no, really.

But I would like to say one more thing about it.

This song is REALLY dark (BA-BUM) and Shuusou Gyoku's False Strawberry is even DARKER. (Mwahahaha)

Well, I'll see you in the next song.

ノリ重視のつもりでしたが・・・ よく効くとメロディはかっこいいかも。 まぁ、1面にまけじと軽快かな? 面的に、今回の2面はスピード感が欲しかったので、まぁこんな感じ。

I wanted it to have a catchy rhythm... Listening to it, I guess the melody is cool, too. Well, the stage 1 song had a nice rhythm, right? So I wanted the stage 2 song to have the typical sense of speed, and this is how it turned out.

 東方Project第5弾 東方怪綺談より【 夢想時空 】です。  この曲、オリジナルは東西混合風にしようと考えながら作った記憶があります。  処理落ちしなければ、最後のサビと同時に中ボスが現れたはずです。

 アレンジは、元曲のイメージを崩さず、かつしっとり感を加えてみました(謎)  元曲の方はもっと、スピード感があったかもね。

 それにしても、曲のボリュームがまちまちですみません(^^;;  どうか、聴く方でスピーカーのボリュームを調整したってください。

Thank you for downloading this song.

This is "Dimension of Reverie" from Touhou 5: Mystic Square. I recall making the original song with the idea of a fusion of eastern and western styles. If I had done it better, the mid-boss would have shown up as the song entered the last part of the hook.

In the arrangement, I kept the same image as the original, but made it even more mellow (for some reason). I guess the original feels faster.

But anyway, I'm sorry about the uneven volume of the song. (^^;; Please adjust your speakers.

Winds are still pretty hard to deal with (sweats), but I like them so that's why I put them in here (What about the guitar? (lol)).

Well, I'll see you in the next song.

なかなか、魔界な感じに仕上がったかな? 1,2,3面と結構スピード感がある曲になっているね。 魔界な感じってことで、西洋風になってるかな。う~ん

It has a pretty good Makai feel about it, doesn't it? The stage 1, 2 and 3 songs all turned out with a real sense of speed. Since it's Makai, I think it feels more western... hmm.

東方怪綺談より【 Romantic Children 】です。

なつかしい... と思いきや、この曲ほとんど覚えてなかったです(^^;仕方がないので、 FM版を聴いてから作りました。ですのでかなりオリジナルに忠実になってます。

で、全然作った時のことを覚えていなかったのですが、そういう曲ってたいていは作るの に苦労しなかった曲なんですね。 でも、いざアレンジしようとしたら、聴いた感じ以上に複雑なコードでびっくり。 さらにループまで3分ほどと長め。 謎の多い曲だ... ほんとに私が作曲したのだろうか(^^;

アレンジの出来具合は、かなり満足げ。 全体的にロマンチック部分を強調しました。こうして聴いてみると、ませたお子様って イメージで創っただけあるね。後半部分の激烈に激しいドラムはオリジナルがそうだっ たからそうしてみたけど、やっぱ正解だわ。あれが子供らしさを出している(ほんとか?(^^; 最近、Midiの勉強と実験をしていて、作曲に微妙に時間がかかるようになっていたのですが さらに最近、新しいエフェクト操作にも慣れて速くなってきました。 この曲も2~3時間で出来たしね(^^; もっとも、88Pro で聴かないとそれも意味ないというのが(;_;

Thank you for downloading this song.

This is Romantic Children from Mystic Square.

I want to feel nostalgic about it, but I really don't remember this song much.(^^; Since I had no other choice, I remade it while listening to the FM version. As a result, it's pretty faithful to the original.

Since I don't remember anything from when I made the song, that means it wasn't that hard to make. However, when it came time to rearrange it, I was surprised at how the chords are a lot more complex than they sound. Then it's almost three minutes before it loops. This song is just full of mysteries... I wonder if I even made it. (^^;

As for the arrangement, I'm pretty satisfied with it. I stressed the romanticism across the whole thing. While listening to the original, I must have made the song with the idea of a precocious child in mind. With the latter half of the original song's intense, violent percussion, that seems to be the right answer. That does indeed bring out the childishness of the song. (Really now? (^^;) Lately, I've been checking out using MIDI, but it turns out that it takes a strangely long time to write songs in it, but as I've been experimenting with the effects as well, it's starting to speed things up as I learn them. This song took about 2-3 hours to make. (^^; But then again, if you don't listen to it with an 88 Pro, it's pointless. (;_;

Well, I'll see you in the next song.

Stage 3 Boss - Alice's theme
Purasuchikku maindo
Plastic Mind

まとも(?)に聞くと暗い曲かも(^^; シューティングゲームの3面ボスってのは、一つのターニングポイントだと思ってますので、ちょっと気合を入れて作ってみました。 (いや、決していままでのは手を抜い てたわけじゃなく・・・(^^;;;)

If you listen earnestly(?), it's pretty dark. ^^; I think the third stage boss of a shooting game is a significant turning point, so I put some extra spirit into the making of this song. (Well, it's not like I was slacking on the other songs or anything... (^^;;;)

いきなり落ち着いた曲になりましたね。(そうかな?)  この曲はかなり苦労しましたね。 そのかいあってかっこよくなりました(よね)

This song really settles down suddenly compared to the others. (You think?) This was a pretty hard song to make. Still, it came out pretty cool. (Yep)

th5_08.txt from 東方幻想的音楽


東方怪綺談より【 メイプルワイズ 】です。 怪綺談のコメントに書いたように、この曲はオリジナル曲の中でもかなり苦労した部類に 入る曲です。

というわけで、ベースや副旋律が複雑でいじることが出来ませんので(^^;; 、オリジナルと ほとんど同じとなっております。実際、元 MML を見ながらじゃないと創れなかったのは初 めてですね。

で、氷の世界をイメージしています。トレモロストリングを使用していると寒い場所のよう な感じがしますね(笑)。オーケストラ風に考えていましたが、微妙に(全然)違いますね。

ではまた次の曲で逢いましょうか ZUN

Thank you for downloading this song.

This is "Maple Wise" from Mystic Square. As I wrote in the comments in Mystic Square, this song is a song that goes into the category where I have had much trouble in the making of the original songs.

So, because of its complex base and melody, (^^; I could not change much so it's almost the same as the original. In fact, it was my first time where I could not have made it without looking at the original MML.

So it has the imagery of the world of ice. Where the tremolo string is vibing, it feels like we are in a cold place (laugh). I was thinking at first of orchestra feel (if at all) but it is slightly different.

Well then, let us meet again in the next song, shall we? ZUN

Stage 4 Boss - Yuki and Mai's theme
禁断の魔法 ~ Forbidden Magic
Kindan no mahou
Forbidden Magic ~ Forbidden Magic

かなり分かりやすいかっこよさを目指しました。 一番前回までの作品に近い曲かな。 「メイプルワイズ」に比べ圧倒的に楽でした(^^;;

I was going for something simple, yet cool in this song. This song is closest to the songs from the last game. It was really easy to finish compared to "Maple Wise". (^^;;

th5_09.txt from 東方幻想的音楽


東方怪綺談より【 禁断の魔法 ~ Forbidden Magic 】です。 嘘みたいにかっこつけた曲です。わりと場違い(^^;

アレンジは(あんまアレンジしてないけど)小気味よく仕上がったんじゃないかと。 いつも、ボスの曲は出来るだけ覚えやすくて、(ボスの)性格にあった曲にしたいと思って いるのですが・・・。私の曲にかかると、かわいいボスも暗くなってしまう(^^;;

ところで、ゲーム中のどこら辺が禁断の魔法だったのかというと、あの影の薄いホーミング レーザーとか(大嘘) 設定上では、アリス(3面ボス、エキストラボス)がエキストラステージで究極の魔法を使 っているけど、あんま関係ないやね(^^;;;

This is "Forbidden Magic ~ Forbidden Magic" from Mystic Square. It is a song that is awesome like a lie. Attempt to compare is out of this world (^ ^;

This arrange (doesn't feel like one) when finished sounded very cool. I always try my hardest to make the boss songs to be memorable and easy to remember as much as possible, as well as to tune to the nature (of the boss) · · ·. But as soon as I make my my songs, even the cutest boss will get even darker (^ ^;

By the way, speaking of the "Forbidden Magic" in the game, it must be the shallow shadow of a homing laser (big lie). Alice (Boss 3 sides, extra boss) uses such "Forbidden Magic" in the extra stage, but it's not like really matters now, is it? (^ ^;;

真紅の少女 ~ Crimson Dead!!
Shinku no shoujo
Crimson Maiden ~ Crimson Dead!!

何と無くメロディが封魔録みたい。 取りあえずあっというまに出来上がった、ということだけ覚えています。 昔のゲームの曲みたいかもね。

The melody is somehow similar to something from the Story of Eastern Wonderland. All I can really remember is before I knew it, the song was done. It's kind of like something from my older games.

th5_10.txt from 東方幻想的音楽


久々のアレンジです。 東方怪綺談より【 真紅の少女 ~ Crimson Dead!! 】です。 短い曲です。でも、ボス戦っぽさは抜群、かな。

オリジナルは30分くらいで速攻終了だったのですが、その分アレンジは苦労してます。 ちなみにアレンジはベースが全て新規です。(ほかはほとんど変化なし(^^;;) 小気味の良い軽快なベースにしたつもり。軽快な中にも神聖な感じが少し感じられてもらえ るでしょうか。

この高速のオルガンは、現在作曲中の「秋霜玉」で多用していて、ただいまはまっています(笑) そんな感じでこのオルガンの音はお気に入り。

Thank you for downloading this song.

It has been a long time since I arranged. This is "Crimson Maiden ~ Crimson Dead!!" from Mystic Square. It is a short song. But, it runs with the whim of boss battles.

Although the original was made in haste within about 30 minutes, that made the arrangement much harder to come up. The base of the arrangement is thus all new by the way. (almost no change (^^;;) With the sound of cheerful bass - Do you feel a little sacredness and dashfulness, hopefully?

The fast paced organ is currently being overused in "Shuusou Gyoku", and is quickly becoming my favorite style (laugh) this kind of feeling of the organ sound is very addicting.

Compared to "Crimson Maiden", this one is a bit more musical. I figured she should be strong, since it's the 4th stage, so I gave this song that type of feel. (Which is?)

This is "Treacherous Maiden ~ Judas Kiss" from Mystic Square. In the song of the boss (Thank you, PeChe-san for the request!!). For a boss song, the melody line is quite thin. Well let's call this song within that kind of category (^ ^; I did not think the arrange will give me too much trouble, but overall, it seems to have improved, more or less.

I was thinking of arranging in Biblical style as the title implies(kiss of Judas), but what's Biblical style in the first place? I seem to have gained a bit of its conscious later on (^ ^;.

Looks like this is the first one of 2000. I feel I will be making a song of this kind in the 2000s. Thank you in the future.

東方怪綺談より【 the Last Judgement 】です。 東方シリーズの通常ステージ曲の中でノリの良さでは、1、2を競うのでは?

この曲は、マイのテーマとして作り始めたのですが、あまりにも合わない上に、結構良くで きてたので(^^;;めでたく5面テーマに昇格したのでした。

アレンジは5面(万魔殿)のテーマということで、西洋神聖風とFMチックゲーム風と(何故?) 2つ考えましたが、後者を取りました。 おかげで、元曲のイメージをそこなわない感じに仕上がったかなと。

たしか、このステージの雑魚キャラは、みんな色違いの同じキャラだった事を記憶しています。 あのキャラ(羽付妖魔)はアニメパターンが多い(特にスカート)のでメモリ的にも厳しいか ったので勘弁。 でもあれはまぁ、手抜きですが(^^;;

いまでも、5面ラストの雑魚ラッシュは、あの激しさは泣かされます(笑) ボスの夢子も、突然現れて曖昧に(^^;;自機を狙う高速短剣は安定した避け方が無く 最難関説がちらほらと・・・

Thank you for downloading this song.

This is "the Last Judgement" in the Mystic Square. Throughout Touhou, out of a stage field song, this ranks 1st or 2nd, perhaps?

This song, I started by making my own theme, but felt that it does not fit well as well as I think I have made it perhaps far too good (^^;; thus I had promoted the piece to fifth stage theme.

The arrange of the 5th stage is to find balance in the sacred Western feel and the FM-ish game feel, (why?), and yet took the latter for direction. Thanks to that, I feel that the finished song does not impair the image of the original.

Certainly, the small fairy enemies of this stage, I remember that it was the same character in all different colors. That character (ghost with wings) had a lot of animation pattern (especially skirts) so it was quite easy to remember of its patterns. I'm sorry, but hey, That I'm lazy (^ ^;

Even now, the intensity of the small fry rush is getting the best of me (laugh) the boss Yumeko also suddenly appears out of nowhere (^^;; The aimed daggers fly fast as my barrier theory appears here and there ...

This is the last boss theme. Of course, I really put a lot of spirit into it. I was trying to make a song that had the right blend of coolness and cuteness. The main melody is pretty easy to remember, so it has a nice feel to it. I'm pretty fond of it.

This is "Legendary Illusion ~ Infinite Being" from Mystic Square. Finally, I've arranged the song quite faithful to the original in a long time. But, I feel that it's flowing rather shallow, and at this rate it would be difficult to use in games.

As such, I have a tendency to unable to withstand the tension of such powerful boss songs (somewhat a lie), so this song also became a boss-like song only in the beginning part of it. I wanted to make songs that is really intimidating someday (which I could never make ((; _ ;)

The difficulty lied in the insufficient memory and of balance. (Is it not with the song?)

So Shinki and Yumeko, unlike the other characters, I wanted to portray them with a great impression (in drawing AND songs). but because the author was such a guy, they became similar characters like the rest. The white silver hair and the six blades of wings was to say a little, an attempt for difference (sweat)

This is "Peaceful Romancer" from Mystic Square.

Since the song was too different, too, I was eventually had it reworked again.

At the end of the day, this song was my last in composing using FM sound. This is actually where I was going to seal my Doujin activities by the mark of this song, but no matter what I do, I could not wash my hands clean (^ ^;

Since it would have been the last, I was enthusiastically working myself for composing a bright and Eastern song, (^^;; but the arrange ended up with a dark feeling of sadness and apathy. (song was not bright after all)

Anyways, this is a finale ending song where Touhou Project itself lowers its curtains, and is quite emotional. Yes, it's true that this song is quite sad that so few people will ever get to hear it since it cannot be heard unless Extra Stage is cleared (^^;
