- "gift nor art"
"gift nor art" is a trance song by Hanasoumen-P, with lyrics by chu-ji. It is over six minutes long and is best known for its accompanying music video, which took Tripshots about a year to create. Tripshots had first hinted about the "gift nor art" video on his website in spring 2012, along with glimpses of the Miku model Tripshots created specifically for the video.
The PV is often compared to Tripshot's previous work: "Nebula", showing a significant change of style and animation quality . Both songs share similar themes; like "Nebula", "gift nor art" features these messages written in the video:
- a lost version – you are not the chosen one
- Created by Sound
- The significance of existence undefined.
- Created by longing.
- She had unlimited possibilities.
- Through technology, machines are allowed reproduction.
- machine – organism convergent evolution
- She was created.
- She gains strength through our desire.
- Through connections with others, living creatures recognize their existence.
- Exceed the bounds of your imagination.
"gift nor art" has entered the Hall of Fame. It is featured on Tripshots Artworks PRODUCT No.02.
