First off, really nice work. It's always fun listening to fan music, and this is no exception.

As for the quoted part, I agree that would be a good idea due to the high amounts of bass and fast beats working with her as a character. If I could suggest something, it'd be to make it more of a hard trance song, since running tends to be pretty graceful/fluid when you get into a really good rhythm. I'm no music expert though, so take this with a sizable grain of salt and do you're thing, and I'm sure it'll turn out cool no matter what.

For anyone here who's following me on Soundcloud, if you're annoyed at all by my endless versions of "Shizune", it's because I feel like I have a great song on my hands, and I'm trying to make it the best anyone's ever heard. Hey, maybe people who don't like KS may like Shizune. Which would be quite funny, as people who have played KS don't seem to like her all that much. xD

Stay tuned! Shizune v3 will be out tomorrow, maybe a v1 of Emi as well if I can pull my head out of KS long enough to bash out a good idea.

Also, I've been thinking of trying to figure out an album cover, but I'm not sure if I wanna go with the idea I have in my head. Basically, some sort of KS-EDM culture crossover, although EDM is quite a wide description which could fit anything. I guess what I was thinking of for this EP is like a fanart-style drawing of one of the girls (Preferably Emi,) in the sort of attire someone who goes to Electric Daisy Carnival or Ultra Festival might wear while there. I was thinking Emi because she just gives me the vibes that I'd expect from a fan of modern electronic music.

Take as long as you need, it's gonna sound awesome :D (And for the record, I don't see people's dislike for Shizune, I think she's great!)

Emi would be good, although I must admit some kind of EDM variation on the logo was my first thought (quite what that would be, I dunno :P)
Perhaps something like this: http://i.ytimg.com/vi/33ZprczVr_k/maxresdefault.jpg, only a bit different and with a bit more Emi. You may not want to, mind, as it is also a grindcore album, albeit a bloody good one :D

Stop the presses. We've got a winner.

No, I'm serious. That would make for a great album cover. Now I just need to find someone who will do it...

Aaah nice, glad I could be of assistance! :D I would draw it, but I doubt anything I could do could do it justice (particularly as I don't own a graphics tablet :P)

This. I could do a color pencil drawing, but I doubt I could do it up to snuff for a real album cover.

Hey guys! I finally have a V3 for Shizune. I'm just gonna stop posting Shizunes up now, and focus on getting a new song out. Also, here's the link.

You should try remixing some of the existing KS songs into EDMs *cough*painfulhistory*cough*

You know, I'd never have guessed that was Jitter without going back and listening to it a few times :P Sounds good, I liked the bit at the end the most.

I really liked in Shizune the first 45 or so seconds and oriental-sounding interlude at 2:00 (seriously, I'm trying to figure out how to play that bit on guitar, I think it's awesome!)
Subjectively, I'm not a massive fan of more clubby-sounding EDM, and Hanako (which has become my favourite one) is much more my cup of tea. That said, as aforementioned there are bits in Shizune that I liked a lot, and I'll definitely be checking out any others you make :D

Interlude is as follows:

D, G, B, G, C, G, A/
C, G, A, E, G, D, A, G, E/
D, G, B, G, C, G, A/
B, C, D, E, G, E, C, D/

I also got the intro as well!

E, G, A, B, E, A, C, B, G, F#/
E, G, A, B, C, E, G, F#, E, D, E/
E, G, A, B, E, A, C, B, G, F#/
E, C, D, C, G, F#, E, D, E/

These aren't chords, although I can say that they're in E minor, or G major. And that explains why I'm jumping around the G major and E minor chords!

Edit: Oh yeah, Hanako V3!

https://soundcloud.com/kierious/hanako-v3

Edit: After careful reconsideration, I've decided to scrap my current EP material. This is because I feel I can do better than what I've already done, and the songs themselves are unrecoverable :(

I may do a re-mix of these songs, just so they sound up to par with the current EDM scene, but for now, I'm starting fresh. Watch out for the new Hanako song, I think it's miles better than the original.

Sorry for the double post, this thread seems a bit dead.

Anyway, I've finally finished "Hanako". I've just got to send it to my editors, and then it will be on Soundcloud for the world to see! Stay Tuned!

Hanako's not finished yet? It seemed pretty finished to me! :P Can't wait for the final cut, as t'were.

Also, thanks for the notes for Shizune, I think I've got most of it sorted now :D

EDIT: Just saw the edit on the first post. What happened? :(

Nothing happened. I just got better at making music, is all. I don't think the versions I have up are "EP" material. They're nice, but they're more ambient than EDM.

Oh right, I thought your computer had gone up the swanny or something :P

Hanako v3 rules hard. Is the drop around 1:45 different on this one, as I think I prefer it this time round. I think everything sounds a little more menacing than last time, or at least unsettling, which I think is a good thing (aside from dat ending, which is gloriously beautiful). Nice work.
