Starting from November 18th (Fri) the internet music market event APOLLO is going to open its doors once again. It's the fifth edition of this event, an online market featuring a selection of doujin music for exhibition and sale.
This time the guys from APOLLO are going to try out something new, and implemented a music remix contest! The target piece is the official track "Cosmic Rays From APOLLO", that can be rearranged and distributed freely.
The song was composed by Hommarju, author of many tracks for Bemani, Konami's music video game division, while the voice belongs to Nagi Nemoto, member of the idol group Niji no Conquistador whose new single conquered the top position of the Oricon Daily Ranking.
In this brand new pixivision feature we bring you a double interview with Hommarju and Nagi Nemoto in person! The two of them are meeting for the first time after recording the track, and told us about some memories connected to their song.
Hommarju × Nagi Nemoto × Apollo: the Holy Trinity of music
I used to draw many illustrations once, but I was too shy to show them to other people. However, when I started singing with Niji no Conquistador, I started uploading them to pixiv and Twitter... For me these lyrics are somehow connected to this experience, and I could relate a lot.
Hommarju: "Nemoto is really smart"
Transforming a white canvas into something unique
I think the feeling when you first try to do something new is very pure. I wanted to express this very feeling, by taking just the good parts of it.
- Thank you very much!
