Sato: “Even if it’s only just one song, I want to make a one together with Tsunku-san. I want him to teach me how. I want to know what he’s particular about — what he thinks is important when writing a song. When I make a mistake, I want him to point it out to me. “No, that’s not how you do it.” I want to write a song that could move people’s hearts.”

Since it’s actually her saying it, the office should let her. It’d be great publicity, too.

Fukumura said it on Morning Jogakuin, and Ishida was saying it on ANN Mobile a while back, but apparently Sato’s radio talking skills have been changing radically as of late. Miyazaki was saying it today, too.

She inherited Tanaka’s DNA, Michishige’s DNA, Sayashi’s DNA, and now she’s even inheriting Terada’s DNA. What’s Sato trying to do here — become the perfect human?

They need to do a show about Sato being taken to a tour of a songwriting company. I’d buy the DVD Magazine of that.

How about starting with arranging first? (For both lyrics and music.) During Lilium, she asked the director if it was okay to change one of her lines — and they actually OK’d her suggestion.

Her DTM teacher is her dad.
── Speaking of performing, I heard that you’ve played a central role in teaching the 12th gen members about rhythm.
Yes. I made them a CD to help with that.
── What sort of music was on it?
I made the songs so that it’d be easier to hear the beat. I lowered the vocals and other rhythms which aren’t as important to feeling the beat with your body, and I raised the sound of the 16-beat hi-hat cymbal — that “chicchicchicchi” sound.
── You raised the volume of those sounds so it’s easier to hear the beat?
Yes. And on some bits of the songs where it doesn’t have that sound, I added in my own.
── You did that using a computer?
A computer and a piano.
── Was it the staff who taught you how to do that?
No, it was my dad. I’ve always liked making songs — it was my dad who taught me how.
── Ah, and that’s why you’re now able to do things like that for the 12th gen.
The 12th gen members aren’t very good with rhythm yet, and even when someone like (Ishida) Ayumi tries to teach them, they have a hard time understanding.
── Like they don’t even understand what it means to “feel the beat”?
Right, they don’t. That’s why I thought I’d try to teach them.

She’s been making home recordings before she even joined Morning Musume.
── My first time seeing her doing the air piano in it (the music video of “Yuugure wa Ameagari“), I was reminded of how Maa-chan likes to do home recordings by herself. I think it was Oda-san who spoke about this on radio in the past, but do you remember when exactly you first started making those home recordings?
Sato: It’s been quite a while since I first started. I was already making them before I joined Morning Musume.
Oda: Once she got an application to do it on the iPad, she started recording with it constantly.
Sato: Hahaha! That’s right!
Oda: She put on a click track, made a drum track in the same tempo, put in some piano, some guitar, my singing… and it ended up becoming this song called “Fantasy ga Hajimaru (Sato Masaki version) feat. Oda Sakura“! And she did all of that while we were in the car commuting somewhere!
Sato: At one point during it you can hear a car horn and stuff. (laughs)
Ogata: Also, when the four of us in 12th gen were struggling with the rhythm of “Seishun Kozou ga Naiteiru,” she made us her own, Sato Masaki-produced rhythm practice CD. I was shocked when I learned it was Sato-san who had made it.
Oda: It was actually our manager who first asked Sato-san to do that. “Please make something for the 12th gen to understand the 16-beat!” And then she made it and brought it in the very next day!
── Do you think it might be possible that the group could one day be singing and dancing to songs written by Maa-chan?
Oda: “Jinsei wa iroiro~ ♪”
── Huh!? What is that?!
Oda: It’s a song of hers that goes “jinsei wa iroiro aru ♪”
Sato: When Fukumura-san became the leader and everyone was all worried, I tried my best to write a song while picturing Fukumura-san in my mind. I thought I’d have Fukumura-san listen to it, but I’m so embarrassed that I haven’t been able to! Oda-chan is the only one who I’ve let listen to the song. She’s the only one who’s heard it in full.

“Sato Masaki-san is my rhythm teacher.”

This is my rhythm teacher:
I took this picture of her when we were in Hokkaido. What a cute Sato-san.
During our rehearsals for the spring tour, or during breaks in our concerts, she’s always by my side teaching me about rhythm. I’m sorry that it eats into her own free time (whether it be just break time, or time she would normally use for fixing her make-up or such). Thank you so much, Sato-san. I can’t express how thankful I am for having someone who can help me — not just during lessons, but wherever and whenever I want — to understand whatever it is that I don’t understand, or whatever I’m not able to do by myself. And that person, for me, is my senpai; someone who is in the same group as me.
“Rhythm is life.”
Those are words once said by Tsunku♂-san.
And Sato-san is the person who helped me improve on my very shaky sense of rhythm.
I wish to one day become like Sato-san.

Tsunku praises Sato as one of those natural talents who he doesn’t have to take a hands-on approach with.
With all that said, she has a very natural sense of rhythm and control over her voice. Two or three years from now, she will be one of the most important pieces of Morning Musume as far as their music is concerned.
(Note: Tsunku talking about the “Brainstorming/Kimi Sae Ireba Nani mo Iranai” single)

Tsunku♂: Sato was the most inexperienced member back when she’d just joined the group. She was like a blank sheet of paper. But the thing is, she’s actually the member who most understands music. By music I mean music theory — or maybe it’s more fitting to call it a sense of rhythm. She understands things like “staccato,” “syncopation,” things like “there is a stop on the fourth beat here.” This is the kind of stuff that people like Nakazawa or Iida spent years trying to learn, but who never quite got it. For the time being, I’ve been just letting her try to figure it all out by herself. I’m very curious to see how she develops from here. Her personality, too, is the kind that’s never been seen in Morning Musume or Hello! before. And it is one interesting personality she has. She’s a very strong person.
