Blue (Japanese Ver.) Cover

Published March 24, 2012 by proxycore

Hello members of JK and random passerby-ers! I know what you all are thinking: ‘WOAH! She’s NOT DEAD!’. Yes, I know it’s been much too long since I’ve updated but better late than never, right?

I know life of a jellyfish may not seem that complex, but it really is rather busy. It’s hard to get things done without muscles of any sort. But now I’ve returned with something that will hopefully make up for the previous silence of this blog.

So, your overlord has been sick lately, but that didn’t stop her from doing what she did today. And that is, drum roll please, enter the Big Bang ‘Blue’ Cover competition with Dolcette!

This was my first attempt at recording music, unlike my infinitely more experienced partner. So needless to say….things weren’t as good as they should be. Not only was I already sick, I was also very nervous. I had to take a good two hours to get my parts down when BBJia got her good copy on the first try. This was also a spur of the moment thing, we originally weren’t going to make a cover of ‘Blue’.

So while we were organizing the lyrics, we realized that we had a lot of difficulty with the Korean. Neither of us speak Korean and trying to was just making us butcher the language. Instead, we looked to an English version. However, we found creating the English lyrics was simply too much trouble. Finally, we decided to try the Japanese version, which I still messed up with my horrid pronunciation…..No matter, that was the version we used! Plus, for some odd reason this song sounds a lot cuter in Japanese!

At this point, since we entered the competition so late (and because my vocal skills are not up to par), I doubt that we will actually come close to winning. It’s fun to enter anyways, isn’t that right? Again, please excuse my horrible Japanese pronunciation. BBJia is really good at this and she also covers other Japanese songs. You should check out her channel at JPopSky.

Thanks for tuning in guys! I know I’m not great in this song but I promise I will be better next time =) I will practice lots and lots for you guys and try not to get sick ❤ Until next time~

Hello my few followers and some wanderers of the internet. Jellyfish has to bring to you another update for Dolcette after a wait that is slightly overdue. So unfortunately, the recording isn’t done yet like BBJia and me have planned, but we decided it isn’t really fair to leave some of you guys hanging like this. So behold, the first gift that Dolcette is going to give you guys. We were planning on recording one of our originals, but truthfully it isn’t finished yet. So here is the work in progress of the instrumental.

Please ignore the fact that the Video states that it is finish, even though it’s just an instrumental, it isn’t finished yet. We are going to do some adjusting once the melody is figured out and the lyrics are. Sounds pretty simple (yet awesome) right? Well I can’t take any credit for this. BBJia was the one who created the whole instrumental so far. Maybe I should post a preview for the lyrics and melody sometime soon! And for those who don’t like it? Well don’t be expecting that much, this is just a pilot after all.

Now we were also thinking of covering a song called “Secret base ~君がくれたもの~”. But things kept on coming up during our planned recording dates and we simply haven’t gotten to that yet. So here’s the instrumental we plan on using to cover.

Haha, I feel like I am showing too much right now. When we actually post our recordings there will be no surprise at all. That’s ok, if it helps your guys not get bored, I will inform you that the original song will at least have some changes in the instrumental.

Well that’s pretty much it for the update! Hopefully the cover will be out relatively soon and the original shortly after! So enjoy this tiny gifts we give you! Until next time~

Greetings my minions. Your overlord has yet another message =P

So I have been planning this for a while, but it has only been put into action (much like this blog). So drum roll please everyone…..

Me and my good friend BBJia have started a music group called Dolcette (pronounced /’dol.sɛt/). The origin of the name comes from the latin words Dolce, meaning sweet, and Dulcet, meaning a sweet, pleasant and melodious. So together, it can mean “a sweet and pleasant melody”. Perfect for a music group name, don’t you think? Now we have been planning this for…a good five months, give or take a few weeks. We’ve been through a few names, like Citrus^3, but those got boring pretty quickly. I think this one’s a keeper though!

Now the name came a little bit late. Currently. me and BBJia are already in the process of composing our first original. The instrumental is finished, but the melody and lyrics still have to be worked out. I’m quite excited to see how it turns out! I have a feeling that with the set of long weekends coming up, we may get it done and recorded within a few weeks. So keep in tune and I will keep you guys posted. We are also working on a couple covers. But everything recorded will be posted on our youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/DolcetteMusic, as well as on here on my blog~ There isn’t anything on the channel yet, but I can promise you that there will be something worth looking at there in the possibly near future….I hope.

At this point, I’m not really sure how it’s going to turn out. Anything can happen. I have great trust in the equipment we are using, which is FL studio and the Blue Snowball Mic (c), but….not so much trust in my own voice. Haha~ I’m sure BBJia can carry anyways =P Just joking! No pressure on you Jia! But we aren’t using any other equipment, and we are letting the computer generate all of the parts. Just in case the music comes out a bit….robotic? Could you describe it like that? But that doesn’t matter, most music nowadays are all computer generated anyways. So I guess we really don’t have an excuse if it sounds bad.~

So stick around. Check out what we have when it comes out. But that’s all I got to say for now, thanks for reading guys!
