about

Based in Kobe, Japan, Shingo Mimura is a musician who has been creating an incomparable view of the world with his multi-talented skills as a producer, composer, arranger, pianist, bassist and music director.
This album is the culmination of his work and his first full-length album under his own name.

In this work, Mimura has depicted hope and light in a chaotic world, and the pure, innocent, and absolutely inaccessible sacred soul that everyone has deep down in own hearts by his expressive power that characterized by the production of music with impressive melodies and visual descriptions with large scale arrangements, delivers the true sound to listners as a unique and overwhelming presence.
It is as if it is the moment when a star is born, the moment when life is born, and it is filled with a supreme joy that can be described as an irreplaceable gift of time.

The ten souls were brought to life by drawing a finer and more complex psychological background that combined by various musical instruments such as piano, bass, kalimba, classical guitar, violin, viola, cello, voice, noise, sounds and nature sounds in daily life, texture of each sound and arrangement method are sometimes dreamy, sometimes exotic, sometimes bewitching, and sometimes feeling great sadness throughout the whole story.
It speaks to us as a crystal of mature, heart-washing sound throughout the whole story.

神戸を拠点にプロデュース/作・編曲/ベース・ピアノ演奏/音楽監督などマルチな才能で比類なき世界観を描き続けてきた音楽家・ミムラシンゴ。
本作はその集大成であり自身名義としては初となる荘厳なるフルアルバム。

混沌とした世界における希望と光や、誰しもが心の奥底に持つ純粋で無垢で絶対に立ち入る事の出来ない神聖な魂を楽曲に込めて描いたという本作において、印象的なメロディとスケールの大きなアレンジによる映像的な描写の楽曲制作を特徴とする作者の表現力は、唯一無二の圧倒的な存在感として我々リスナーの耳へと真の音を届けてくれる。それはまるで星が生まれる瞬間であったり、生命が誕生する瞬間であったり、かけがえのない時間の贈り物とでも言うべき至高の喜びに満ち溢れているかのようだ。

ピアノ、ベース、カリンバ、ガットギター、バイオリン、ビオラ、チェロをはじめとした多彩な楽器や声、ノイズ、生活の中にある音や自然の音、それぞれの音の質感、またアレンジ手法を組み合わせる事でより細かで複雑な心理的背景を描き命を吹き込まれた10の魂は、時に夢心地であったり、時にエキゾチックであったり、時に妖艶であったり、時に大きな悲しみを感じたりと、全編に渡り成熟した心洗われる音の結晶となって我々に語りかけてくる。

全曲の日本語タイトルをシンガーで作詞家の高山奈帆子(a.k.a. Carneiro)が担当、そして翻訳家の立花陽一郎とAlison Wattsが日本語の雰囲気や音楽のニュアンスを深く汲み取って英訳した。
