I am just out from an impressive effort in stabilizing the last release of Falcon, and I need a break and few things are more refreshing to me than Shimamiya Eiko's music. I have a nearly endless backlog of song of her I'd wish to translate, to share the experience of being caressed by her music with everyone, but this one has caught me so much I find often myself seeking and replying it again and again. Maybe because it's autumn.

The music is gentle and light, but it's extremely rhythmic, with massive usage of phaser effects on synthesized instruments, all in a joyful major tone. And so is the song, happy and light... as it talks of a woman whose spirit raise high in the sky, as her lover runs after her, calling her name and begging her to be back with him.
