This is the first of two albums released in 2016 that consist entirely of the work J.A. Seazer did for Revolutionary Girl Utena. The "origination" part seems to be to do with these being tracks arranged and performed by J.A. Seazer and his theater group, contrasted to the "transformation" album where the arrangements were done by Shinkichi Mitsumune.

HQCD apparently means a special kind of material and production process designed to ensure higher quality in the audio on the disc. I can't confirm or deny this has any value, however, the tracks on the album have been 'remastered' for this printing and it does indeed make a difference, especially at very high volumes where the sound is somewhat cleaner. That having been said, it's not so drastic a change that you'd be likely to hear it without doing a side by side comparison to the original discs.


A note: The given names are predominantly based on the Utena Translation Project's original translations of the songs. Where a song title has become widely accepted as different, ie. The Sunlit Garden instead of The Sunny Garden, I have used the more popular name. Punctuation has been altered to better match the Japanese tracklists.

The "Comparison" options when available are side by side multiple translations, romantization, and Japanese, depending on availability. They're an awesome and surprising resource, and I hope you check them out.

Just like the whale, I go

Just like the seal, I go

At the bottom of the sea, a grand history.
to the bottom of the sea, where I will be me.

Missing Link
Translation by Verthandi

Missing link, ooooh
Missing link, oooh
This is the link that was lost

Though I cut ties with this world,
I continue to transform
O heavenly bodies!
Why do I remain
In this world?

Missing link, ooooh
Missing link, oooh
This is the link that was lost

Though I cut ties with this world,
A power is connected still
O illusion!
Why do I remain
In this time, this place?

Though once unborn,
I yet came to be born;
Most resourceful,
My heart

He who is born will die
He who is born will disappear
Yet, we perservere;
It is quite absurd.
Though I cut ties with this world,
A connection remains

Lo, I have vanished, yet now I am singing
Lo, I have vanished, yet now I am laughing
Lo, I have vanished, yet now I am petrified
Lo, I have vanished, yet now I am living
Missing link, missing link...

Missing link...
Missing link...
The lost link on the chain.

Though I am disconnected...
Even so, I continue to evolve.
Stars up above...
Why do I
exist in this world?

Missing link...
Missing link...
The lost link on the chain.

Though I am disconnected...
Even so, I have the
power to join.
Mirage before me
Why am I here now?

I did not want to be born...
and yet I was born all the same.
The most resourceful thing.
Would be my heart.

Though I am born, I will die...
Though I am born, I will disappear...
It happens over and over again...
It's so absurd...
Though I am disconnected...
Even so, a connection remains...

See, I have vanished yet I still sing.
See, I have vanished yet I still laugh.
See, I have vanished yet I am petrified.
See, I have vanished yet I still live.
I exist. I am here.
I exist. I am here.
I exist!

No one has anything to tell
There is nothing to be told
Only in the sealed darkness known as yesterday,
Only in the glint of a mere split-second known as now,
Only in the darkness waiting for the light known as 
tomorrow, in the theater.

I can become anyone
I can become anything
Only in the sealed darkness known as memory
Only in the glint of a mere split-second of creation
Only in the darkness waiting for the light known as tomorrow, 
in the theater.

Ah, dance! Ancient continental theatre of
the actors who wore the mask of Time.
Ah, dance! Admiration of you that come from the
Milky Way railroad, three of the Seven Ancient Wonders.

Like a star,
Like a firefly,
Shining during birth, we'll shine and disappear.
Shining during birth, we'll shine and disappear.
All of us will be born, then disappear.
Shining during birth, now shine and disappear!
Be born and disappear! I, the jewel
Shining during birth, I shone then disappeared
Born, then disappeared, the star that is me.
The Evening Star, Ego Star
Shine and disappear, Firefly Star!

No one has anything to say.
There's nothing to be said about anything.
Except in the enclosed darkness called yesterday.
Except in the momentary flash of light called now.
Except in the darkness,
awaiting the light of tomorrow, in the theater.

There's the possibility to be anyone.
There's the possibility to be anything.
Except in the enclosed darkness called memory.
Except in the momentary flash of light called creation.
Except in the darkness, awaiting the light of tomorrow, 
in the theater.

Oh, dance! Ancient continental theater...
...of the performers who wear the mask of time.
Oh, dance! Three of the seven wonders that you...
...long for carried here on the Galactic Railroad.

Like a star, 
like a firefly.
A flash and it's born, a flash and it fades.
A flash and it's born, a flash and it fades.
Born and then gone, all of us.
A flash and it's born, a flash and it fades.
Born and then gone, I, the jewel.
A flash and it's born, a flash and it fades.
Born and then gone, I, the star.
The first star. I, the star.
A flash and it fades, the firefly star.

Nature's light
Mosaic light
Child of daybreak; the angel Lucifer
Apocalyptic light
Michael's light
Child of darkness; androgynous
Fire's light
Heavenly light
Hierarchia of the heavens
Illusory light
Eternal light
Phantasmic deception; 
capricious birth

Nyx
Erebus
Uranus
Thanatos

Shining bodies, 
all of them spherical, 
gynous
just as if born with every miracle, 
gynous.
The pleasure principle, 
the Nirvana principle
Death's inevitability, dubbed "the light"

Without having to have lived,
Phenomenon of mobile life
In the cerebral universe
Shape of floating life
Glory, ephemery, 
hope for eternity!
Incomplete returning to the 
primitive beginnings.

Male/female, positive/negative 
are the two of me.
Up/down, left/right 
are the two of me.
Front/back, Heaven/Earth 
are the two of me.
Angel and devil 
are the two of me.

The center is hollow 
hollow hollow hollow...

Universal light.

Lucifer, son of the dawn.
Apocalyptic light. 
Michael's light.
Androgynous, son of darkness.
Fiery light.
Heavenly light.
The hierarchy of heaven.
Illusory light. 
Eternal light.
Tricks of the mind.
Capricious birth.

Nyx.
Erebus.
Uranus.
Thanatos.

His body shining bright, 
spherical in shape,
Gyes.
Born into every possible miracle,
Gyes.
The pleasure principle.
The Nirvana principle.
The certainty of death, namely light.

Without having lived,
the moving phenomenon of life.
In the universe of the mind
the drifting shape of the living.
Light, temporary existence.
Seeking eternity, 
namely the folly
of returning to the beginning.

The two sexes, the two poles, 
there are two of me.
Up, down, left, right, 
there are two of me.
Front, back, heaven, earth, 
two of me. 
Angel, devil, 
there are two of me.

And inside I'm hollow.
Inside I'm hollow. (repeat)

Flow of blood from the cage of my memory,
In the cradle of a thousand years of bliss.
And I, an actor cast eternally

Phinx.

Now you know the sadness

And I, a holy actor, cast eternally

Just like the sphinx, 
phinx of the winter desert.

You know the winds of sadness
of the body in both birth and death
The holy actor, eternally metaphorical.
The dark light that fell into the abyss, 
marginal. 

Brightly burn!
Awaken and sing!
Born into the world!
Birth of a moment!

Translation by Robert Paige &

Twin relationships are the
capricious, heartless lies of desires
propagating endlessly in the
interval between two mirrors.

Ah, man does not exist.
Ah, within the darkness
Ah, the sound of the waves

Even light casts shadows, 
making a pair out of me and me.
Isolation outbreak, 
that's the reason making a pair out of me and me. 

Twins, 
twins-in-law, 
Scheming twins, 
absent twins...

Since we see the invisible,
The contrived world rises to the surface.
Amusement apparatus and optical illusions,
Then contrived world rises to the surface.

Earth is a contrivance of personalities
Earth is a toybox of personalities
Earth is a department store of personalities
Earth is an exhibition of personalities
Earth is a museum of personalities
Earth is a curio box of personalities

Earth is...

The infinitely opposing relationship

The evergrowing desires and
the fickle, cruel lies.

Aah! Man does not exist
Aah! Within the darkness
Aah! The sound of the waves...

Even light makes darkness
I am opposed against myself!
Outbreak of loneliness, that's the reason...
I am opposed against myself!

Twins.
Step twins.
Scheming twins.
Absentee twins. 

To see what can't be seen
a scheming world surfaces.
Made of gaming equipment and painted backdrops
a scheming world surfaces.

The Earth is a character, a museum.
The Earth is a character, a glass shelf.

Virtual Star Embryology (Duel Chorus)
Translation by Robert Paige &
          Utena Translation Project (1998)

Ancient times, perfect, solitude in the desert
Air, atoms, the planet of causality

Yes, a native child
Conception
The embryo of philosophy

Egg, perfect, the origin in the nest
A stamen, a pistil, one seed

Yes, a native child
Growth
The child of philosophy

And 
Lunar Heaven, Mercurial Heaven, Venusian Heaven
Solar Heaven, Martian Heaven, Jovian Heaven
Saturnian Heaven, Sidereal Heaven, Motive Heaven

Further circular infinity without end
A kind of organic engine
A kind of perpetual motion device
Ah, lost motion 
I'm a lost motion

Ancient times. Perfection. Isolation in the desert.
Atmosphere. Atom. Causality star. 

Yes, a child of earth is 
conceived.
The embryo of philosophy. 

Egg. Perfection. The origin in the nest.
Stamen. Pistil. A single seed.

Yes, a child of earth 
grows.
The child of philosophy.

And then 
lunar heaven! Mercurian heaven. Venusian heaven. 
Solar heaven. Martian heaven. Jovian heaven. 
Saturnian heaven. Stellar heaven. Motive heaven.

And then... The endless surface of the torus.
A single organic mechanism.
A single perpetual motion machine.
Ah, it is empty movement. Just empty movement. Empty...

I Am All the Mysteries in Creation
Translation by Verthandi

An ode to my face,
my neck,
my hair
An ode to my nails
and my torso
An ode to my hands
and my feet
This is an ode to all the parts of my body

In other words, a crest;
This is the heraldry of the human body

That figure in the mirror
Performs delicate work in a complex situation
Charge argent on field sable; courtly ettiquette
Charge sable on field argent; shield-shaped design

People arrayed in impenetrable symbol
The historical art of the Baroque

The Salamander
The Dragon and the Urchin
The hidden miracle of the Eucharist
Creed and virtue
Kept in confinement,
The miracle of the rose
Human-beast-flower
Pearl and jewel
The age of man
Floral diamond and cross

An ode to the face.

An ode to the nails.
An ode to the chest.
An ode to both hands.
An ode to both feet.
An ode to the whole body.

In other words, a crest.
The heraldry of the human body.

The form I see in the mirror.
Both subtle and complex, a well-known design.
White spots on black cloth, courtly etiquette.
Black spots on white cloth, in the form of a shield.

People clad in unintelligible symbols.
The artistic history of the Baroque.

Salamanders.
Dragons. Porcupines.
The Eucharist. A sacrament.
Faith. Virtue.
The sealed-away
miracle of the rose.
The bloom of man and beast.
Pearls and gems,
people and age.
A cross of flowers!

In all creation, I am all the mysteries!
In all the world, I am all the mysteries!

An Immortal Emperor in a Mundane Universe
Translation by Verthandi

Existance: wonderous alchemy
Base metals; precious metals
From right to left,
Start to end,
Destruction, the hunt, a frenetic dance, a celebration banquet

Birth: unviewable alchemy
Apparatus of artificial recombination
From top to bottom,
A metamorphosis into a curious shape
Books, anonimity, self-indulgence, wildness

An unchanging world (I am)
I am unchanging
Ka Wa Ra Wa Ra Zu Ra 
Zu Ka Zu Ka Wa
Unchanging

It ends: The wasted labors of foul and fish
It ends: The deceptive game of the egg and bed
It ends: The ancient dance from the boat and carriage
It ends: The anticipation of the sea and waterfall

Glittering reverie, flickering imagination
Parched vision, slithering expression
Murmuring delusion, flittering thought
Fluttering invention, trembling supposition

Birth: immortal alchemy
The cosmic egg of time and space
Philosophic crystal, Rosicrucianism
Purity, harmony, and perspective

The future, past, and present me
The future, past, and present me

Glittering origin, flickering solitude
Parched labyrinth, slithering space-time
Murmuring reminiscence, flittering memory
Fluttering evaporation, trembling immortality

The future, past, and present me
The future, past, and present me

Stop! The efforts of birds and fish are all for nothing!
Stop! The egg and the bed are cheating each other!
Stop! The ancient dance of ship and coach.
Stop! The anticipation of the sea and waterfall.

Shining dreams. Shimmering imaginings.
Withered fantasies. Fragile conceptions.

The Angel Androgynous

Pentagram shape
Pleasure
Mandala
Reproduction axis
Ideals and reality
Male and female

Dignity; chastity
A double submission of passion; lusterous waves
A prototype of antiquity connected with me
Seraphitus
A couple equipped with both sexes
Seraphita

Paradise mechanism
Model
Mosaic
A doubling dream
Odd numbers and even numbers
Light and darkness

Individuals or multitudes?
Words or things?
Such doubt is beside symbol,
The Dioskuroi
All Creation, both sexes, chaos
Anima, animus

I hasten my spiritual completion
Namely, to rediscover the interior of my ego
Right and left, the two of me
Angels, all Creation, man and woman, both sexes

A pair of heads; a pair of bodies
An internal pair; an external pair
A pair of sexes; a private pair
A pair before; a pair behind

In this world, I am a solitary duo
In this world, I am alone with myself
In this world, there are but two of me
Two of me
Of me, two
Me: two of
Two of me
In this world, I am androgynous
Ahhh...Ahhh...Ahhh...Ahhh...
Hermaphrodism!

Two breeds, two me's.
Two fronts, two backs.

I'll make the word just for the two of us!

I'll make it so it's only the two of us!
The two, the deux,

Incandescent darkness and birthed puppets
Are named, anthropoperipherism
Pulling the strings of the world is a single existence
For the others, an imaginary puppet-craft

Subzero darkness and birthed creatures
Correlated, anthropoperipherism
On the natural stage are the units of existence
Comprised of an imaginary creature-craft

Words are born, the encounter, then a hesitation
Knowledge is born, the encounter, then a void
O where am I, when am I

Spell, incantation, mystery, prayer, myself
Stage destiny magic mirror

Full moon, mysterious and transmutable, 
I'm an imaginary living body come to its end
Full moon, mysterious and transmutable, 
I'm an imaginary destined body come to its end

Seeking time, without rest
Living on, a speleomorph

Seeking land, armless, legless
Still existing I am, transparent, intangible, 
a faint sigh...

The world is controlled by a single being.
The rest is imagined puppetry.

Darkness, freezing, creatures given life
Linked by Human Movement Theory
On nature's stage are units on existence.
Comprised of the imaginary art of life.

Words are born, they meet, then hesitate
Ideas are born, they meet, then become empty.
Oh, where am I and when am I?

Spells, charms, mysteries, prayers, me.
Stage, destiny, magic, mirror.

Full moon. Mysterious and ever-changing.
I am an imaginary life form at my end.
Full moon. Mysterious and ever-changing.
I am an imaginary destined form at my end.

Asking for time. Never resting.
Living on, a hollow form.

Seeking land. No arms, no legs.
Yet I still exist. Formless and transparent.
I let out a faint sigh...

Internal Clock, Municipal Orrery
Translation by Verthandi

An image of Death rocks my mind
I pull the cord; toll the bells
The cock beats its wings; when the window opens
The twelve disciples are mere dolls
Unblinking, a grand parade

The old orrery (clock of astronomy)
An automatic mechanism
The twelve constellations of the ecliptic me:
The zodiac, I, The zodiac

Within my body, from olden times,
One hundred towers rise above
A visceral landscape; Utopia
In the cemetary, a church, a cloister

Eye of Earth;
motive specimen
Intellectual organ of stone;
the sign of Motive Power
Unfinished embryo;
the secrets of Death
The theater, the hospital, the historical museum

Artificial flesh; grotta; Labyrinth;
illusionary construction; marble
Artificial clock; weight; spring;
spinning and turning; individual time

From the ancient city to me,
It ends with that day, quotidian clock
The sun in daytime;
the moon at night
The natural clock of a day

Bong bong, ding dong ding,
Bong bong, ding dong ding.

The corporeal city and the Mystery of the clock
Geometric law, puritanical construction
Monotony; eternity
The present; perpetuity
All Creation is reality
Monotonous
Infinitely changing

I will take the form of a corporeal city
I shall take the form of a suspended clock

Municipal clock, a discovery
Municipal clock, an understanding
Municipal clock...
"Annihilation!"

The figure of Death, his head shaking.
The rope tightens, the bell rings.
The rooster flaps, the window opened.
The 12 Apostles, like statues!
Unblinking, a grand parade!

The ancient orrery,
automatic device!
12 constellations of I, the ecliptic.
A zodiac. I am the zodiac!

Inside my body is ancient.
There, a hundred towers stand.
My internal organs, an ideal city.
In the graveyard, church, abbey.

The eyeball of Earth.
An example of motion.
The intellectual organ of stone.
A dynamic constellation.
The incomplete embryo.
Death’s mystery.
Theaters, hospitals, museums.

Manmade flesh. The grotta. The labyrinth.
Illusory construct. Marble.
Manmade clocks. Bells. Springs.
Whirling round and round. Counting time.

From the ancient cities to me…
Ending on that day, the 24-hour clock.
The sun showing at noon…
...and at night, the moon.
Our natural 24-hour clock.

Bong, bong! Ding-dong-ding!
Bong, bong! Ding-dong-ding!

The city of flesh, the mystery of the clock.
Geometric law, rigid construction.
Monotony, eternity.
Present, permanence.
The truth of all creation,
unending sameness.
Infinite variety.

I will take the form of the city of the human body.
I shall take the form of the broken clock.

City, clock, discovery!
City, clock, revelation!
City, clock, annihilation!

わたしは起源が好きである。
起源フェチとでも言おうか。
しかし誰しもが何らかのフェチストであることは 間違いないはずなのにフェチという言葉は変態的に扱われる。
変態…といえば、人間はどこかの成長過程で劇的に様変わりする。
つまり変態すると思う。
そうこう考えているうちに 「音楽というのはフェチの極みの表現媒体ではないだろうか」 いう領域に迪り着く。
そう、わたしは音楽フェチである。
ついでに言わせてもらえば、わたしは演劇フェチでもある。
そうしたわたしの嗜好が、アニメ『少女革命ゥテナ』出会わせた。 1997年のことである。
演劇を起源としたわたしの音楽が、 このような形へと変態して外界へ出てゆくなんて考えもしなかった。
絶対運命は天使を光に創造し、 バーチャル•スター的音楽を発生させ、 肉体の中の古生代を呼び起こす。
そして天空高くスピラ•ラビリス劇場を組み立て、 地球を人物陳列室としながら、 肉体星雲シュラを撞憬の天空に蘇ら达、 わたしを万物百不思議^した。
寓意•寓話.寓エストと唱えながら、 やがて、わたしを平俗宇宙の皇帝としてくれた。
同胞と信じている天然宮殿の遠近法は、人生の画法なり、 ヮタシ空想生命体の体内こそ 体内時計都市オルロィであると定めもした。
人生は偶然であるとされているが、偶然とは必然であり、 絶対運命でもあるということを演劇から教わったことで 『少女革命ゥテナ』との出会いは絶対運命であった思っている。
そして、劇場を起源とした音楽私生児たちがわたしの手のひらに再び帰ってきた。
世界旅行でもしてきたかのように、たくましく成長した彼らは どこか自信に満ちているようにもみえた。
昔はわたしのそばを離れようとしなかった彼らが、 アストラガルス地球双六を手に「新たなる船出」を試みようとしている。 ジュリアス•シーザーの革命を記した ルカヌスの叙事詩『ファルサリア』のごとく、 勇ましく旅立った彼らの行方を見届けるしよう。
万事究明、すでに賽は投げられた。
