[Video] For some reason or other I opened the door and left.

[ The broadcast comes with the sunset, and in fact the camera is angled so that it only catches Priss' partially-gloved fingers on the guitar strings, and a shred of her leather-covered stomach inhaling sharply at all the key moments once she's singing, barely visible around the guitar's body. The rest of the camera's zoomed focus is on the sky behind her as sunset begins to roll in, which takes up fully half the frame. Priss may not have a band here, but she's a god damned professional, and she knows how to set up a shot. And how to project into a mic that's several feet away; wherever she is, she's set up the acoustics damn well. ]

[ There's only a few seconds pause before she begins to move her still slightly-damaged fingers on the strings, left hand at the neck and right picking the first notes before the first strum. If said fingers are stiff at all, it doesn't show. An inhale... and her voice joins in over the guitar as more notes are pulled from it. ]

[ It's a slow song. ]

[ She goes silent for a second, fingers stilling the guitar strings. And then, back to it. ]

[ Priss' voice is silent for another second, but the guitar ramps up with several strums. Both she and it are louder for the next part. ]

xxxxxxxxxx[[ ah, I want to be strong, but... ]]
ah, ai ni dakaretai
xxxxxxxxxx[[ ah, ...I want to be embraced by love. ]]

xxxxxxxxxx[[ lonely blue confusion. ]]
[ Back to only guitar, the same notes as before being picked out. This goes on for about ten seconds before another strum marks the start of more singing, guitar and singer starting off quieter again like before, but slowly building up. ]

[ Several short strums and Priss is back to singing more forcefully again. ]

xxxxxxxxxx[[ ah, ...so that I can be free. ]]

[ Her voice softens once more. ]

[ A final couple notes and one last strum, and the song is done. Priss steps off camera. ]

[Genos had been focused on examining the song, that he could enjoy listening to it went completely over his head. He was going to need to know about this stuff now.]

That was a far superior performance than the ones you performed with the lackluster bands before. I did not hear any errors.
toaster_puppy: (Neutral: Talk)

[personal profile] toaster_puppy 2016-07-01 10:13 am (UTC)(link)

[Was did she mean by that...? Genos quickly put it out of his mind.]

It was enjoyable.
toaster_puppy: (Neutral: Huh?)

[There was a long pause before he replied.]

I see.
imaginationswoes: (Smile)


[personal profile] imaginationswoes 2016-07-01 06:26 pm (UTC)(link)
That was really wonderful. I hope it's okay that I stopped to listen. I really love music.

Oh, My name is Airy.
imaginationswoes: (Anime - Ummm)


[personal profile] imaginationswoes 2016-07-03 01:13 pm (UTC)(link)
It's nice to meet you.

Are you going to perform at the theater in Genessia or any where else?
imaginationswoes: (Anime - Okay)


[personal profile] imaginationswoes 2016-07-03 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Neat, all over the place like in all the cities? I think you'd do best in Nova City.

It just seems to fit, your music I mean.
imaginationswoes: (mmmhumm)


[personal profile] imaginationswoes 2016-07-03 11:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Medieval town? You mean Fayren?
imaginationswoes: (Im doing something)


[personal profile] imaginationswoes 2016-07-03 11:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Do you write everything yourself?
I think there are some clubs in Nova City that you should look into performing at. I'd go.
imaginationswoes: (Default)


[personal profile] imaginationswoes 2016-07-04 11:19 am (UTC)(link)
I'll look forward to it.
pathosis: (but when i do i prefer dos equis)


[personal profile] pathosis 2016-07-02 12:07 pm (UTC)(link)
You're good. You write that? I'm not familiar with the song.
pathosis: 1. (what's your favorite color)


[personal profile] pathosis 2016-07-02 05:47 pm (UTC)(link)
No kidding. I always wanted to be in a band but my buds just can't sing. What's yours called?
pathosis: (thank you for your money)


[personal profile] pathosis 2016-07-13 02:28 am (UTC)(link)
What's Sekiria mean?

You'll think of something good, I'm sure. I play guitar.
dolleyed: (So we gonna do this or not?)


[personal profile] dolleyed 2016-07-03 11:43 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Songs are bound to draw Kohaku in, as a musician with heart and soul. But one concern... ]

A whole performance all for free? You're missing a business chance.
dolleyed: (Tsuntsuntsun)


[personal profile] dolleyed 2016-07-04 09:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Mhm, fair point. That's the downside of being stranded, no one's heard of you before.
dolleyed: (Real talk for a moment here)


[personal profile] dolleyed 2016-07-04 10:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Did you do music professionally in your world?
dolleyed: (How are you even....)


[personal profile] dolleyed 2016-07-04 11:14 pm (UTC)(link)
... I have no fucking clue where any of these places are, but I can figure what this means.

[ He considers for a moment. The way musicians work here and in other worlds as compared to in his world is immensely different. ]

I'll take it, musicians were as popular where you came from as they seem to be in Genessia.
dolleyed: (Love bites etc etc)


[personal profile] dolleyed 2016-07-05 07:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, often enough. This place's peaceful so people have time for this, but when an orchestra comes play for people in mortal danger, half of the time they're gonna wind up pretty pissed.

Not that we necessarily cared for that.
dolleyed: (I like them big (the guns))


[personal profile] dolleyed 2016-07-07 11:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Sounds like the sadsacks in mine could have learned a thing or two from your people.

Though it's not like we were playing for shits and giggles - music actually made an impact on our kinds of dangers. I'm wondering if that's a thing anywhere else, too.
