The fantasy band Sound Horizon is a group of artists led by the sound creator Revo (songwriter, composer and arranger). In order to express a fantastical story musically, he gathers together and organizes suitable artists, without restrictions with regard to the number and sex of singers and storytellers. In a word, Sound Horizon’s music is “story music”. Its main characteristic is the way stories are depicted using a lot of poems, songs, talking, sound effects, etc., in accordance with the setting. The music is expressed in “suite form”; each album is made as though it were a suite. The concepts underlying their works question fundamental elements of human nature that have a contradictory dual aspect; they include life and death, light and shadow, love and hate, and happiness and sadness. The more one listens to the music, the more one understands its depth.
