This solo concert, which is TRUE’s first concert since last November, was based on the TRUE note – exclusive video material for their fan club featuring acoustic arrangements of their music. She began her first True Note performance with “Happy Encounter”, followed by other songs such as “Hanabi” and “Puzzle”, all in various arrangements.
Before moving on to her next song, TRUE told the audience, “I hope I can make a comfortable space for all of you here—as if you were sitting comfortably at home.” She placed the song “Sincerely” in the middle of the set list, and for this number the lyrics were removed for only a keyboard accompaniment, allowing the audience to hear her vocals, breath, and the raw, grainy texture of each sound. . His emotions flared up as soon as he came off the stage. For this concert, instead of wearing in-ear monitors (IEMs) like most performers, TRUE opted to use only speakers on stage so that she could “hear the clap and applause of the audience directly” and interact more closely with them. be able to connect with On the other hand, since none of the musicians wearing the IEM could hear the clicks used to maintain tempo, they had to listen carefully to each other’s breaths to stay in sync.
I was able to find a new side to “Honestly” because of this version’s delicate voices that swelled into my soul. While the audience was listening so intently, the music faded into the next song, “Memento”, a more upbeat song that the audience could clap for. So far, the concert has produced a rich song selection that engages, excites and even takes the audience’s breath away.
Then, after telling the audience a story about her grandfather and him, the moment she decided she wanted to be a singer, TRUE performed a brand new song—”Time Machine”. On the second day of a YouTube Live held on her birthday, she said, “I want to make today a special day, so tomorrow, I made a new song!” and sang the first verse and chorus of her “Birthday Song”. In the song, TRUE is an adult singing about his childhood. From the opening phrase with her soft voice, she sang, “Flicker the candles, blow them out and become a new me.” I can almost imagine a pleasant scene with the birthday cake in front of me. It’s a song that I want to experience to the fullest and I want to embrace it as my body slowly moves towards the music.
Ever since TRUE was a child, she had a love for music and also for anime songs. The concert’s homestretch included that kind of music, so taking his passion for Anisong at his heart and performing incredible vocal work, he recorded “Dear Answer”, Beautiful Bones: Sakurako’s Investigation and “Blast!” from the soundtrack. ! Euphonium: The Movie – Our Promise: A Brand New Day. Near the end of the concert, she continued with “Hello, Good Bye”, a song that carries an optimistic wish and a message of gratitude. As the stage lit up with colorful lights, TRUE shook hands with fans and musicians and enjoyed the final moments of the night.
After the crowd cheered for the repeat, TRUE announced a future concert, “True Live Sound! vol.6 The ‘Encount’, to be held on February 12, 2023. Then she performed one last song, “Music”, which one might say is her “business card”. And with that, the first page of the new chapter of TRUE was beautifully colored with every color of the rainbow.
TRUE’s next concert “TRUE Live Sound! vol.6 Encount～” will be on sale until August 21, 2022 @11:59 PM. The venue will be NHK Hall, one of the stages at which TRUE is expected to perform. As TRUE grows as an artist Happening, I hope he shows us what next time.
