The first album "Obento" was released on the 10th, November.
Mr. Ryuichi Sakamoto commented that "It is pretty incredible that this music was
made only with a NINTENDO DS" on the twitter
.






We are grateful to Mr.Ryuichi Sakamoto for his tweet!

# Mr. Ryuichi Sakamoto is a member of YMO and his song "Behind the
Mask" will be included in the Michael Jackson's new album.


--------------------------------------------------


< Who and What >


"
DS i Love You" uses just one software synthesizer
"
KORG DS-10" running on NINTENDO DS.
All the albums were made only with this,
without any mixing, mastering, nor outboard effect.
Nobody could not believe that the sound was made only by DS-10.


This experiment unit is run by Mr. Kanji Honma.

His major activity has been the music composition for commercial films.
He has written many pieces in his field, for example, for "Coca-Cola",
for "Shiseido Cosmetics", etc. He has been enthusiastically supported by his fans.

He had been the producer of the Japanese techno-pop group FILMS and TPO.
Since FILMS had been regarded at the similar position to
The Buggles in Japanese pop scene and TPO to The Art of Noise,
Mr. Kanji Honma is sometime called as Japanese Trevor Horn.



Mr. Kanji Honma's alternative name is Joyo Katayanagi.
He made the sound track of Mr. Masamune Shirow's animation
"Black Magic M-66" by this name.


In early 80's, he had been making his music pieces with
huge musical synthesizer and electronic instruments,
which had costed several hundred thousands dollars.


On the contrary, the idea of "
DS i Love You" is
to prove the end of such days.

No expensive instrument any more. *One* Nintendo DS gives more.

--------------------------------------------------

The music by "
DS i Love You" is
romantic, pop, nostalgic though futuristic.

"It is possible only by *one* Nintendo DS".

Please try to listen to the music by "
DS i Love You",
who is getting the public attension in Japan.

Many 'DS i Love You' videos can be watched on youtube!
Please try!




This quality just by one DS! Great! Homma! Now I know the equipment does not matter!
Thanks for your tweet! Mr.Toyoaki Mishima(Engineer of Keigo“Cornelius”Oyamada).



The debut album of DS i Love You would be made by the delicate and
time-consuming job to place the next sound and note after the careful examination.
It is wonderful that he produced the stylish baseline,
miraculous and pulsive groove, modern harmony under the constraint of Game Machine.
Thanks for your tweet! Mr.Kashiwa Fukunaga(former TPO member) .



"Obento" by DS i Love You is the excellent pop music made by well grasping
how the nice fragments of sound effects on music. He would not be
just the technician because I feel the love to the electronic sound.
I recommend this to those who love TELEX in Belgium or Hello World by
Mr. Seiji Toda since they also have the same type of love.
Thanks! 'loosecube'.



Thank you. I listened to the tester on the web. It's romantic, pop and
nostalgic though futuristic!. It's amazing that it by just one NINTENDO
DS. The greatest experiment brought about the best pop music!.
Thanks! 'posttit'.
