Today, NTT announced a brand new collaboration with Ai Otsuka, who will be the ambassador of the "Heart Beat Project".



They will collect heart pulsations from about 10,000 people, and they will use this to make a song. The song is expected to be release on December this year.
What kind of memory makes your heart beat ? What kind of thought or songs make you feel warm or sad ? That's the purpose of this project, collect as much as possible different kind of sound that can make your heart when you feel something.
There will be different events in where they will collect them. Ai Otsuka's summer live house tour will be one of them. If you attend her live, you might be able to be part of this project, and who knows... maybe we'll hear your heart beat in Ai's new song !! Giggle

What kind of song will it be ? Even Ai Otsuka herself is not sure yet, but she can't wait for sure !

I think this song will be a B-side. They would have notify this song is part of the Heart Beat project, but since they said it would be unveiled on December, it will be a complete different song Wink

"Reach for the Moon"? Shocked Is that a new song? When did she perform it?

Edit: Nevermind, I googled it... Weird that no one posted the news but it sounds pretty indeed! Smile

Makes Sense Smile I'm really looking forward to it.

Seeing as the heart beat is not super fast, i think this song will be a mid-tempo song Smile

She will sing for the 1st time during her AIO Piano Live vol.2 in Tokyo on December, 21th ! (and then once again on December 28th, in Osaka) !
It will be the piano version (I guess), but the studio and some announcement should come soon !

Looks like her new song is called "End And And ~ 10,000 hearts ~" and you can hear half the song here:

Pretty strange name for a song in my opinion. But oh well.. and what's up with "AND" written twice? but you can hear her sing those words "End and and towards the end of the preview"

No, Ai-chin, you are better than this eurodance track.

I like the song (so far). Smile Not her best work but I like that she keeps experimenting. Who would have known that Ai-chan would release a full-blown dance track one day? Laughing

I wonder if it will be released as a 96kHz/24bit track. Avex put her last three releases in WAV and FLAC 96/24 on e-Onkyo.

I have to admit I don't understand this, and though I get the whole idea. Can you be more precise about these specificities ?

96/24 as an audio track will sound worse than 44/16 of a CD because of ultrasonic distortion, speakers cannot reproduce sound outside normal hearing range very well. The distortion can worsen playback of the frequencies of music you can hear. You get a frequency response of the sample rate so the 44.1kHz of a CD gives you a frequency response up to 22,000Hz, above the 20kHz most people can hear so CD really is the sweet spot. 96/24 is more hype than higher fidelity music IMO.

People are better off with a CD if they can get it, but this might end up a low quality web only release. If it is web only, 96/24 would be like having your own studio master from which to make a CD or MP3.


Sample from the beginning of LOVE FANTASTIC

This is time on the horizontal and frequency on the vertical. The brighter colors are "louder". In the top CD frame, the top is 20K-22,000 Hz, for the bottom picture the top of the freq scale is 44K-46,000 Hz.



CD Lossless (ALAC CD rip), the highs are cut off at 22,000Hz, but that is above the range of most people's hearing



Official 96kHz 24 bit release (FLAC to ALAC)

96/24, the highs are unrestricted, well into the ultrasonic range, outside the range of most speaker's ability to play back, but the highest highs are preserved as produced in the studio. You can see there are louder spots of high frequency are not be in the CD version, although most people could not hear them anyway even if they were.

Being able to hear in the 22kHz-24kHz would be like have 20/15 vision instead of 20/20. Many people can not even hear to 20kHz, forget 22-24. That is why I think 96/24 is more hype, again, unless the alternative is a bad web only release (like the Hikari phone release).

I like the new song very much, but I'm a little disturbed by the fact that, once again, it's a song in which every line of verse/chorus begins with the same word! We get 8 lines of the same melody and nearly the same words, then the chorus kicks in and it's pretty repetitive I don't know if I'm the only one that finds this irritating, but it's the main reason why I didn't like "More More" so much. "LOVE FANSTASTIC" had the same thing going on (but the bridges are great), and after hearing it again in "Mawari Mawaru Mawareba Mawaro" chorus, it makes me tired a little Sad
