Hello! This is wappa writing!
Recently, the access to our blog is increasing by the link from the "square-enix music" and the "Smile Please". At this timing, we want to tell you about what we are thinking about our "Creating work".
At present, our main business is "creating video game music", but "Dog Ear Records" is a record label, so we do want to release the original CDs in the near future. The situations of those are still in the planning stage. But probably, we can release some of the works around this autumn.

The music we want to provide to you is a various music created by the musicians of a wide range of nationalities, So that a lot of people with various musical tastes will listen to our music; moreover, we want every listeners and creators to become happy by our works, and we will make strenuous efforts to realize it.

And one more thing we want to work on is "providing to children the opportunity to get the real experience of working, by participating in the part of the creating business of Dog Ear Records". Last month, I got a chance to talk about "working" with the children of the elementary school sixth-grader in Saitama Prefecture, as a guest teacher. What I felt by talking with them is that the recent children get a lot of knowledge by the popularization of the internet more than when we were a school child. But those "knowledge by information" is completely different from the "knowledge by experience". The things they get from the internet are not the "knowledge by experience" which was gotten by the real experience, so I felt that those children don't understand the essence of the thing which they know, actually. And the problem is that they are losing their imaginations by having the illusion that they know every kind of thing by getting those information knowledge.
Actually, it is very important to have a lot of knowledge. Because nothing come of nothing. I think "imagination" is the same too. But most important thing is not the "quantity" of the knowledge, but the "quality" of the knowledge which adult gives to the children.

Recently, the opportunity of visiting the scene of the actual work, the opportunity to have the real working experience as the learning about society, and also the opportunity of asking to adults about the work seem to be decreasing remarkably. Dog Ear Records decided to work on this project to give our children a lot of real experience of the work as far as possible. Of course, it's not always positive for the company such as the risk by showing the information still in progress. But the works we want to create are not only the fashionable good seller music which listener loves only for a few years. We want to create the things which people will love for hundreds years.
When aiming to create those kinds of works, showing the information which is still in progress to the children won't be an obstacle to us. Or rather, if we can give our children a lot of experiences by this project, I think it includes the most valuable things for adults and the society, and also for us, too.

I think you won't have a chance to see these kinds of activities. But when it realized, I'll show it a little on my "DERBLOG"!
Oops! Sorry, this entry became too long.
Lastly, growth of the Dog Ear Records as a "company" is very important to us, but at the same time, being a company which can give a lot of people pleasure with it is what we aim for, and we will realize it through hard work! We appreciate your continued support! Thank you!

今日は、3月12日に某スタジオで行われました
Xbox 360用ソフト『ロストオデッセイ』の録音風景を
わずかですが写真でお伝え致します。

Hi,everyone!
Today, we will show you some pictures of the
Xbox 360 videogame LOST ODYSSEY's studio recordings
at March 12th.
あまりまだ多くは語れませんが、音楽の部分で言えば、
"POP"さをテーマとした『ブルードラゴン』とはまた違うテイストで、
人間の感情の奥深さが表現された美しく力強いメロディーの数々。
これは素晴らしいなぁ・・・。

おっと、もうこれくらいでお話はやめておきます。
写真をご覧ください!

---------------------------------------------

I can't talk about this program a lot yet,
but musically, it is quite different from "BLUE DRAGON".
The musical theme of "BLUE DRAGON" was "POP".
But this time, I felt that Nobiyo's songs are expressing the
depth of the human emotions mainly and those melodies are
so beautiful and also have a strength.

Oh, I can't talk about it anymore....
Please look at the following pictures!

今日は我がドッグイヤーの事務所について
少しばかり書きたいと思います。

以前のスマイルプリーズさんでの日記にもあった通り、
ドッグイヤー・レコーズは自由が丘に拠点をおいています。
設立当初はよく、何も無い部屋の地べたに座りながら植松さんと
いろいろと話し合ったものですが、
家具などを揃えていくうちにどんどんと見違え、
今では白を貴重とした生活感のない空間に生まれ変わりました。

『Before → After』 の 『Before』な頃の写真がないのが残念!
当時は、カーペットの上であぐら組んで、缶ビールとお惣菜ですよ。


部屋にはこんなものもあります。

ドッグイヤー缶バッジです。

ドッグイヤー・レコーズ初のグッズになりますが、
今後は色やデザインを次々と変えていく予定ですので、
このオレンジ色のパオちゃんのバッジは、
先月行われた『ノビヨのしっぽ/第四期ファンクラブイベント』に
お越しくださった方々と、私が個人的な仕事で訪れた
埼玉の小学校の6年生100人にのみ配布させていただいたという、
大袈裟に言えば"貴重"なものでございます。

ですので、捨てたりしないで大切にしてくださいね。

ところで、その植松さんのファンクラブ『ノビヨのしっぽ』の
第五期会員募集の受付が既に始まっておりますが、
皆さん既に入会 or 更新されましたか?

Today, I want to write about our DER OFFICE a little.

Our office is located in Jiyugaoka Tokyo as you know,
it was written in the diary of "Smile Please Co.,Ltd".
When we first start this office, there was nothing in the room,
so we used to sit down on the floor and talk about the future.
But after buying the furnitures, the room had extremely changed
into a white stylish(?) room.

Oh, I should have taken some pictures before the room
changed! The picture of Nobiyo sitting directly on the
carpet and drinking can beer might have been rare!


We also have these things in the office.

Yes ! Dog Ear Records can badge !

This can badge was given only to the audience who came to
"Nobiyo's Fan Club Event" which was held last month.
And also to the children of the elementary school in Saitama
where I went as a guest teacher.

I hope that there is a chance to give these DER goods to the
Nobiyo's fans in overseas someday.

Well, You don't want it that much?
