- An ENTIRE NEW REVOLUTIONARY GIRL UTENA ALBUM! Check out our newest addition to the family: Alchemistic Girl: The Tale of the Rose & The Egg! The companion album to the recent Barbara Seazer image album, this one is a departure from his usual vocal choruses with guest vocalists through-out the tracks! It has been meticulously translated by the wonderful Ayu Ohseki, and the usual resources such as liner notes, side by side translations, and scans are there! Enjoy!
- Streamlined and cleaned up the Singles and Et Cetera sections. Removed the Seazer one I'll never get around to building.
- Extensive glitch and mistake fixes across the page, including my brain farting ass putting the wrong Japanese text in the OST 6 liner notes section

- STAY TUNED FOR TRANSLATIONS OF THE ANIMATE CD, REAL DOLL TRACKS, AND MORE!!

Welcome to the overhauled Audiology subsite of Empty Movement. A complete, insane, maybe obscene resource for everything and anything to do with the music and soundtracks of Revolutionary Girl Utena.

This has been years in the making, which is why it's desktop-optimized, you all were still using them when I started this, so deal with it. :( If you can do that, you will find here exhaustive resources for the Utena soundtracks, including complete lyrics for the various duel choruses and pop songs found within the Utena IP.

The real meat of this project is in the lyrics. I have in single pages multiple translations of each song, with the lyrics aligning side by side with the original romanization and Japanese text where available. These can swing out individually within the pages for convenience, or be opened into their own files for the complete look at the content. All translation notes by the various translators are included on these pages.

It's my hope in doing this that it will encourage, enable, and result in more analysis of the lyrics and the role the songs play in Revolutionary Girl Utena. It's a running joke within the fandom that Seazer's lyrics are utter nonsense, and God knows they sure feel that way at times, but when has that ever stopped us?

This is, again, a massive work in progress, for the rest of my miserable life. Please contact me if something is a mess or wrong or just not working, since a lot of glitches and mistakes only ever show when I've uploaded it and think I'm done. (giovanna at ohtori.nu)

Thank you again to everyone that let me ransack their various websites for content, a complete list is in the Miscelleneous section, since it too will never be done. Your enthusiasm was contagious. Over years.
