Comments from Composers
“Round & Laundry is a love song from me to Carole & Tuesday, who are forging a new path through dull days. I really love these two characters.
Maisa Tsuno (Akai Ko-en)
I love this series! I love the fact that it’s about friendship and loneliness rather than an action series. The characters really appeal to me. They’re all interesting, and it was an honor to write music for them.
Each of the songs had a very specific subject. One was about finding friendship in the midst of despair. Another was about longing for a place to belong. I also received detailed information about each singer, so in the end, I had a very clear idea of what to write about. The themes were definitely in the realm of what I know and love.
I’m honored to be included among the many talented musicians and anime legends involved with Carole & Tuesday.
I tried to imagine Cybelle’s feelings of sorrow while composing La Ballade. I assimilated Cybelle to such a degree that I felt a tightening in my chest as I sung those sad lyrics. I've become very emotionally attached to the character. Cybelle, I wonder what you're doing now?
Working on this project was so much fun! I already had some ideas for the songs before the creators approached me and explained the concept of the show. I went back to my studio full of energy and fine-tuned those ideas until they fitted perfectly. Music is one of the most powerful mediums we have in terms of influencing people’s emotions and mood. I know the creators of Carole & Tuesday care deeply about the music in the show, and I think that’s really amazing and important.
It was such a dream come true to be part of this awesome project! I've been a fan of Shinichiro Watanabe's work for years and I'm so grateful to be given this opportunity to make something for the series.
