During this past a month and half, we have had a great experience making music with our amazing sound engineer/musician Sarah Shin Wong. It was a big pleasure recording my compositions + stories + little secrets with her and my best friends Emi Shibata and Rika Shibata. At the very last night just before we exported the tracks, Sarah asked me if the person I wrote about in my songs will get to hear those songs themselves, I answered maybe yes, maybe no, but to me it doesn't matter that much anymore.
Among this world we live, lots of things are created to be quiet. Like the ocean at night, the moon and the stars, the trees and the flowers... Some other things are not even visible, like smell, thoughts and love. Not all the happiness and sadness will get to be shared, and not all the emotions will have sounds. I love those loves that are heard/felt without being said.
On top of that, if you actually could share your true feeling with the people you want to, you happen to be very lucky. Thanks to my lovely friends, I can't wait to share my music with you.
