40mP feat. Hatsune Miku – Ame to Asphalt

Ame to Asphalt

Yet another work for 40mP is out on Nico Nico Douga! Just like “Junjou Skirt”, “Ame to Asphalt” / “雨とアスファルト” (Rain & Asphalt) will be available in 40mP’s third major album, “Shintai Sokutei”.

I’m currently transcribing the romaji; for now, here’s the kanji lyrics.


零れ落ちた涙 受け止めた君の手をすり抜け

そこに在るモノさえ 信じることはできない癖に
そこに無い何かに 救いを求めて目を瞑った

目に映るものすべて 遮断して 息を吸った

抱えきれないほどの現実(げんそう)を この手で壊してしまえたら
君が僕の感情を切り裂いた言葉も 忘れてしまえるかな

君のその涙と混ざり合い 川になり流れる

誰かの悲しみなど いつかは
空を彷徨う風になって 消える場所を探す



数えきれないほどの偶然と 数えきれないほどの必然が
君と僕の存在を引き裂いて 孤独を分け与えていった

抱えきれないほどの現実(げんそう)を この手で壊してしまえたら
君が僕の感情を切り裂いた言葉も 忘れてしまえるかな

抱えきれないほどの現実(げんそう)を この手で壊してしまっても
君が最後にひとつだけくれた言葉だけは 忘れないままで

Tell The World About Livetune: A Fresh Air of Out-of-the-Box, Colorful Music

Tell Your World About Livetune

One of the most amusing and intriguing parts of the growing phenomenon of Vocaloid culture originating from Nico Nico Douga is the fact that the songs are all composed by the users of the software, regarded as “VocaP” (Vocaloid Producer). There are so many great, talented VocaP’s, each of them having their own way of using the famous voice synthesizer to produce masterpieces that captivated millions of people  in Japan, and even around the world. In this post, I’m going to talk about one of my top four favorite Voca-Ps—besides supercell, DECO*27, and 40mP—all of which have influenced my music preference and my passion to be a musician myself until now: kz, or as most of us refer more often as “band” or “group”, livetune.
