Treow / SakashoudouP(逆衝動P)

mylist | community | blog | twitter


Treow started uploading music on Oct 2008 under the circle ElektLyze. His P name is taken from lyric of his first uploaded song L'azur, while his official name came from Murakami Haruki's novel title "End of the world and hardboiled wonderland" (EoW - "end of the world"'s abbreviation). Since 2010 he teamed up with Kitajima Shizuka and created ELECTROCUTICA - a project involves many producers, musicians, singers, etc... He has 17 songs uploaded to NND up to now; the most popular ones are probably Chaining Intention and DYE/Re:flection+ (remix of AVTechNO!'s famous DYE) which got 1st place on Megurine Luka midyear special ranking last year. 

It's hard to describe Treow's music, but basically his genre is electronica with the mixture of many complicated melodies and sounds which are not easily recognized on first time listening. His music style is a little similar to Kanno Yoko's (one of the musicians who affected him, as he himself said in Gekkayo magazine interview), means that his works always have certain depth and climax. Many of his songs are moderately catchy electronic tunes alternate with a mixture of piano, drum as well as other instruments; therefore are able to form delicate and fascinating unique sounds that are not too hard on ears, but strong enough to amaze listeners and easily grasp their minds. Moreover, he likes to put expansions and changes in rhythm so much that one of his nicknames is "Young Noble of Rhythm Change". He doesn't often write lyric for his songs; lyrics are written by other members of his circles (NaturaLe, Kitajima Shizuka, hisui0...); which always have deep meaning and go perfectly with the glamorous music.

Treow mostly uses Miku and Luka for his works. His Miku often has solid and clear voice which can reach extremely high notes without any strain (for example L'azur or Drain), but sometimes is slender enough to blend smoothly with calm and subtle rhythms. Her voice is often tuned to be not too loud, as if it was about to dissolve into the music, yet still sharp enough to be heard clearly. Treow is also known for making Miku hum with a tranquil voice or speaking in a little robotic way at some parts. His Luka's voice is calm and rich, gently mixed with Miku's and always makes a lively combination. Treow has only used Gumi for iDOLLA, but her voice is greatly tuned too and seems to have a broad range. 

After forming ELECTROCUTICA, Treow started to collaborate with many artists on various fields: vocals, instruments, lyrics, video graphic... All the vocalists he chose are famous for their steady and beautiful voices: Luschka, Yanaginagi and F9; as well as skilled musicians and graphic designers, all consequently give his songs the best power to express the deepest meanings. He also does remix of famous songs, and collaborates with other VocaloidP to produce electronica albums, such as Crystalloid (with 8#Prince, AVTechNO!, zddn) and DYE-Synthesis- (with AVTechNO!, under circle name "Abeshoudou").

Treow sometimes holds nama housou with other circle members, and actually he's one of the most serious people i've ever known on NND XD

sample songsYua says
As i said in my previous spotlight, i'm not a fan of electronica at all, but Treow's music has such an extraordinary fascination that i can't help falling in love with. The first song i encountered was Blindness, and to say the truth i wasn't impressed much on the first time listening. I think it's one of the reasons why Treow's music is that charming: you can't easily feel the true melody at first, but it gradually melts into the ears and anesthetizes you before being realized. This also explains why some people can't stand his music, while others are addicted by it, in my opinion. I actually can't remember how many times his songs erased all of my other thoughts and made me deeply fall into his world admiring every single note. If you want to try listening to him, i think you can start with Chaining Intention and iDOLLA.

Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #171 (January 03 - January 10, 2011)

This week's Vocaloid ranking has a new video size as well as format, and that is why it is late by a day. And I am also late because...of some distractions. Sorry! D: Anyway, this song has very few uploads but most of them are by awesome people worth noting. There is a lot of movement this week, with surprising pushes to the top and returns. The top 3 are indispensably amazing, too.

↑# - the song moved up from a previous top 30 rank
↓# - song moved down from a previous top 30 rank

Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #170 (December 27, 2010 - January 3, 2011)

To welcome the new year, there are many new uploads and all of them have their own charm. There are quite a few popular producers in this ranking, so I hope you enjoy! Please do not mind the lack of/useless comments from me. I was doing this in the middle of an Asamakkurai namahousou so pardon the randomness from my partly broken brain.

Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #169 (December 20-27, 2010)

This week's ranking doesn't have as many new uploads as before but hey, 15 new songs in the ranking isn't bad. There are strong keepers (LOLwowakadecoetc) but the ones who rose to the top are new, lovely music definitely worth a listen. I apologize for the lateness of this post, though, as well, Christmas = parties = sleepless nights. Yup. Not to mention the Internet is amazingly slow during the holidays, isn't it? Anyway....

Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #166 (November 29- December 6, 2010)

As with the utattemita ranking, I apologize for the lateness and if you might notice, the lack of the history part in this ranking. I still don't have my Internet at home back, office still blocks Nicovideo blahblah. :(

Anyway, is it just me or the influx of new songs last time died a bit so we have only a few new songs this week? The ones at the top are mostly songs we already know, but amazing nonetheless.

ETAs:

• the_desserter posted about the next Dokinama
• Nicoraji just announced that they will have Dasoku and Gero as their guests on Wednesday, so that makes it three days of Utaite galore in Nicoraji.


I know I've missed a lot of news about other personalities mainly because I am following only a certain number of people. If you have any news to share, feel free to put them in the comments! I should start making a contribution post or something /shot

This week has only a bit of new uploads (wait until next week, after Miku's birthday matsuri XD). There's a bit more MMD stuff remaining from the 5th MMD cup and of course, there are songs celebrating Lily's release. The rest are mere movements within the ranks and surprising returns.

There are a lot of MMDs this week because of the upcoming MMD 5th cup, which I learned from [livejournal.com profile] singing_robots. Aside from the MMD ones, there are quite few new uploads but that doesn't mean this ranking lacks awesome stuff. There's a couple of keeps in the rank, a lot of movement and some returners, all of them pulled up by either covers or new uploads from the same producer.

For a proper intro, please read the Miku ranking here. The duet/group/outsider ranking has only 95 songs, which is sad. By outsider, BTW, they mean those Vocaloids who aren't Miku, Len/Rin, KAITO, MEIKO, Luka, GUMI, Gakupo, Miki, Kiyoteru and Yuki as well as UTAU.

So far, this and the annual rankings are the only ones I type in reverse order (from 100-1) so that it'd be more exciting :). If you want me to do the midyear/annual rankings in the traditional way (the 1-xx order), just tell me :).
