Overview: “For me, writing songs is a way of expression that is very close to my true, unadorned self.”
A soprano, composer and singer-songwriter whose style is mostly inspired by neoclassical, new age and folk music. © last.fm. Haruka Shimotsuki possesses an incredibly clear, high, and beautiful voice that fits traditional instruments like a charm. She has sung hundreds of songs since 2000, either doujin or commercial, and is well-known for GUST-series (Atelier and Ar Tonelico), anime, and eroge songs. The most game- and anime-related songs (not including GUST) are positioned as a pop, though. She is a member of several projects: MW with Rekka Katakiri (片霧烈火) and kukui with myu. One of the most attractive parts of her career is a doujin collaboration with MANYO and Nao Hiyama (日山尚). They have been managing many circles: starting with Maple leaf, then arcane+しちごさん。(753), Canoue and tieLeaf, which are still active at the moment. Besides that, she has also been participating in the famous projects like Sound Horizon, Barbarian on the Groove, Voltage of Imagination, WAVE, and more to count.

Overview:  Akiko Shikata is an avant-garde folk artist. She has a very personal music style, basically a mix of ethnic folk and neoclassical darkwave, in which she likes to use her multi-faceted soprano voice as an instrument, among other oddities. Known for her eclecticism that can be confusing at times, she has covered many styles that go from experimental rock to jazz, symphonic metal, ambient, progressive pop, industrial and classical music, as well as many subgenres of folk, just to name a few. However, most of her songs have in common an ethnic vibe, a non-linear, progressive structure with stylistic, tone and rhythm changes, quirky dissociated choirs and/or layered vocals at some point or another, simultaneous use of low and high vocals, and a lot of them could be labeled as neoclassical ©last.fm. She’s well-known for her Hymmnos chorus songs that made wide appearance on GUST games (Ar Tonelico, Ciel nosurge) together with Shimotsuki Haruka. She’s also owning doujin circle called VAGRANCY that has a long history starting from 2001. Akiko Shikata releases her orgel music on the circle, but not only.

Overview: Aki no Sora is a doujin circle created in 2008 by Aki Misawa (三澤秋). She’s singing and writing lyrics for all of her songs. She has connections with many circles such as Sound Online, Alstroemeria Records, ALiCE’s EMOTiON, WAVE and axsword. Thus, you can find that many songs were composed by onoken, Morrigan, Tsukasa and other well-known composers such as bermei.inazawa or naotyu-. Aki Misawa has gentle voice that fits very well not only with piano and instrumental music, but with electronic music as well. Four Seasons series is my favourite part of this discography, notable with its amazing instrumental tracks and touching lyrics.
