Horizons Lointains ~ French version of “New Horizons” from Heileen 3 to be released!

We have recorded a French version of my debut single New Horizons!!

The traduction/translation was provided by a dear friend of mine – Damien Tremollet – with whom I used to sing and fandub back in the early 2000’s.

I am very please with this French version. It has a slightly different feel than the original yet features very meaningfull lyrics and nice vocals.

The song will be available on iTunes this coming Friday March 29th. Don’t forget to download your own copy :)

To be sure not to miss the release, RSVP for the event on Facebook!!!

Meanwhile, don’t hesitate to go follow the adventures of Heileen, a young girl travelling on a pirate ship :)

Nous avons enregistré une version francophone de ma chanson New Horizons!

La traduction et adaptation ont été produites par mon viel ami Yota (Damien Tremollet) avec qui j’ai eu bien du plaisir des années auparavant à chanter et faire du doublage amateur!

La chanson est vraiment jolie et un peu différente de la version originale.

La chanson sera disponible sur iTunes ce vendredi 29 Mars 2013. Prévoyez télécharger votre copie. Ca me fera vraiment plaisir :)

Pour ne pas manquer l’évênement, RSVP sur facebook !!!

En attendant, vous pouvez toujours jouer à Heileen 3, et suivre les aventures d’une jeune fille sur un bateau de pirate dans les Caraibes.

New singing demo!! :)

I was listening to my 2012 Singing Demo that was featured on the right corner of the website and I was like… I can do better than than! lol :)

That is why I worked on a new song mix with some of my favorite recordings but also the new ones from last year and early 2013.  The goal of this singing demo is to show all my “different” voices and styles, my vocal range as well as my skills in 3 different languages (French, English and Japanese). Who knows, someone may be interested…. ;) I have also used exclusively photos from live performances to demonstrate that I am an expenrienced live performer and that I can take on any stage with lots of presence and charisma.

If you were wondering, the songs performed are the following:
1. Arcane from Ave;new
2. SMILE from My Little Pony Friendship is Magic
3. Garasu no Hana from Ikkitousen Dragon Destiny
4. Danzai no Hana Guilty Sky from Claymore (Riyu Kosaka)
5. C’est La Vie from Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon
6. To Be Free from Ami Suzuki
7. Inori You raise me Up from Romeo x Juliet (Rena Park)
8. Carry On from Sailor Moon the NA English version

10. Sayounara Musume Yo from Irulanne x Philip Rivard x Michael Dapello
11. My best Friends from The Fandub4Luv Sailor Stars Fandub
12. Sora wa takaku kaze wa utau from Fate/Zero
13. Yume no Kawa from AKB48
14. Stargazer from Gundam
15. Arrietty’s Song from The world of Arrietty (Cecile Cobeil)
16. L’amour a prit son temps from La Guerre des Tuques/The dog who stopped war (Natalie Simard)
17. Synchronicity from Tsubasa Chronicle (Yui Makino)


 

HEILEEN 3 New Horizons released – and therefore, the theme song as well ;)

Few months ago, I announced that I had been chosen as the vocalist for the theme song of the visual novel game HEILEEN 3.

You can read the post about it HERE.

The game was officially released a few days ago (Heileen.com) and so the song in the demo video posted on Youtube!

Comments and reviews have been very good so far and a lot of people are enjoying the game already :)

 

The original song is scheduled to appear on iTunes in January 2013. A French version (writen by Damien Tremollet aka YOTA) will also be recorded early 2013.

 

New Horizons debuted at Vancouver’s Anime Revolution last August 2012 and will also be performed live at Gatineau’s Ganime in January 2013 !

 

 

 

New Horizons – Theme Song for Heileen 3 (Tycoon Games / Matthew Myers)

The news has been circulating around the internet for quite some time now but I never got around my own website to make the official announcement  >_<

Heileen“, “Heileen 2” and soon to be released “Heileen 3” are visual novel games for PC that were developped by Tycoon Games (Winter Wolves Games). Set during the 17th Century, it’s the story of a young naive English girl who embarks on a ship with friends and family to begin a journey to the “New World”. The ship gets lost at sea and Heileen eventually ends up on a deserted tropical island. In order to survive, she must get along with unusual friends, including a talking cat, and use magic tarot cards. Later on, she begins a new life as a pirate where she’ll find aventure, love and romance – and perhaps her true destiny.

In order to conclude the Heileen story arc, the game developper commissioned a theme song to 2EastMusic‘s music composer Matthew Myers - also known as the mastermind behind the famous LEETSTREETBOYS .

***drum rolls***

And I was chosen to be the vocalist for the song :-)

I was not really expecting this – being super busy at the time with Anime North Idol and my preparations for Anime Revolution. It was a very nice surprise and a huge confidence booster. Afterall, I had been singing for over a decade but never got to the point where anyone would have considered me for “professional” singing (and it’s not because I haven’t tried before…)

Unlike recording “covers”, working on original material takes time, adjustments – and the client’s approval. But I am happy to report that the song is almost completed as we are now busy tweaking harmonies and such. Matt has been absolutely amazing and working miracles with the song arrangements and mixing, despite my francophone accent ;)

I am also excited to announce that I will perform “NEW HORIZONS” live at ANIMUSICA, my jpop & anime performance at Anime Revolution on August 19th at 2:00pm.

New Horizons and Heileen 3 will eventually be released online and the song, on iTunes – possibly around Christmas 2012. I shall make an update when I’ll have more info.

Meanwhile… I will have another announcement to make soon. Stay Tuned ;-)
