Here’s a short preview// Ecco una piccola anticipazione
Your first new release was a compilation album. How did it feel to listen to your old songs again? Are you 100% satisfied with the previous Versailles albums or is there anything that you think you should have done differently?
KAMIJO: I still love the old songs.
During the hiatus you all kept creating new music… solo works, Jupiter (the band the other four members besides KAMIJO formed with a new singer) and so on. Could you achieve what you wanted to with these projects?
KAMIJO: I will keep my solo activities beside Versailles.
Your previous albums were concept albums with elaborate background stories. Is this new era for Versailles also a start of a new story?
KAMIJO: Yes, because if there is no story, I can’t write lyrics.
And what are your inspirations for these stories? Books, history, movies or maybe something else?
KAMIJO: Human life.
How did you first encounter the renaissance culture and how did it became such a big influence?
KAMIJO: I love all the works of Leonardo Da Vinci. I think his works go over art.
In our interview back in 2007, I asked you about you musical influences. But who and what are your main influences and motivations outside the music world?
KAMIJO: Women’s eyes.
Do you have any special hobbies besides being a musician?
KAMIJO: FileMaker Script.
And the last question….: Why are you so attracted to roses? Do they have a special meaning for you?
KAMIJO: Lineage of memories.
