I’m so excited to announce that Aiko will be featured on the upcoming EXIT TUNES UTAU compilation: UTAUMiRAi! CrusherP’s song “Biohazard” is on the tracklist!
The album includes Teto, Kakoi, Ritsu, Momo and Renri, and preorders will be packaged with a lot of cool goodies like buttons and posters! It releases in Japan on November 15th, but preorders are already available on many online anime/music goods stores such as CDJapan.
(The YouTube CM below may not play if you are in the US, many apologies!)
I’m happy to announce I’ll be attending Anime Banzai this coming October with AkiGlancy for VOCAMERICA! I’ve never been to Utah before, so I’m SUPER excited about this con and I’m looking forward to helping out with the concert! Keep an eye on the event page for individual panel/concert/meetup times and locations!
Also, I’ve decided to open up a public Discord server for Studio VOXYZ! It’s generally singthesizer-themed, but so far there are also channels for art and gaming. Feel free to join, and please take a look at the rules channel before posting!
First, Aiko’s page has been updated to show her new 2017 official character art! I wanted a bit more of a dynamic pose than last year’s, so I decided to go ahead and revamp it!
Also, I forgot to post my Rayfes cover here! Rayfes is Homurane Ray’s birthday festival, held each year between August 8th and 22nd. She’s one of my favorite Japanese UTAU, so I always try to participate! Though I’ll have something else featuring Ray coming very soon…
It’s been a while! I have several things to catch up on, so I’ll get the quick stuff out of the way first.
I updated all voicebank download links on Aiko’s wiki, and I’m in the process of switching her Facebook page over to a general Studio VOXYZ fanpage! While the URL change was easy enough though, Facebook is being stubborn in allowing me to change the page name. So there’s a chance it might stay in Aiko’s name. However, I’m going to start using it to post a lot more stuff Studio VOXYZ related!
And now for the videos I’d neglected to post! Aiko’s birthday was on the 10th of this month, and as a send-off to her English CVVC (as I’ll be focusing on recording VCCV), I posted a remake of an older cover: “Fireflies” by Owl City!
(Yes. Mostly for the memes.)
If you’re curious, you can hear the old cover here.
Also, I’m proud to announce my third original song! I produced “Siren’s Lament” for the MIRIAM 13th Anniversary collaboration “The Lady and the Silver Circle”, a 7-song compilation album which you can download for free here!
I tried to go for a sea-shanty feel in my song, which tells the story of a mermaid/siren (MIRIAM) who falls in love with a human (LOLA). And though he doesn’t sing, I intended for LEON to be the sailor mentioned in the lyrics! Perhaps someday I’ll make a full PV with all 3 of them…
