--What feeling are you trying to convey with the “Fantasia” part of your album title?
Yamamura Ryuta: Well, “fantasia” means “fantasy,” but we use this word because the album isn’t tied to the rules or format of the classical world. It’s from there that our unified values, our fanaticism about how flumpool has to sound, and the extent to which we cross between the rock and pop genres split apart. We did away with all that, didn’t worry about anything, and express ourselves freely. That’s the meaning we’ve attached to it. It comes close to being life-sized, and it’s an album that has our true music.
