Kaoru interview Sound Designer March 2014

Takumi: Thank you very much for talking with me Kaoru! We’ve known each other since I started holding guitarist parties.

Kaoru: Yeah. Nice to see you again.

Takumi: I’ve been really wanting to visit the studio in which you guys (Dir en grey) do your pre-production, and learn things like how your heavy sound comes to be. What kind of work do you do in this studio?

Kaoru: I work here from the first stage of song production. The other members make demos at home and then we gather in this studio with them. Each persons demo will often just have  one riff, one lyrics verse, or just one idea, etc so firstly we listen to all of them together and then decide which ones we’re going to take to the pre-production stage. From there we do arrangements and pre-production together here.
