Hey all! A lot has happened through the past couple of weeks, so I’m going to shove it all into one major post. Right now following the Studio VOXYZ Twitter is the best way to keep up with new YT/NND/SoundCloud posts and news snippets, but I’ll try to make a point of posting more detailed updates here on a regular basis!

First things first, as you Twitter followers might already know, I’m participating in a MEIKO compilation album titled “Dark Chocolate and Maraschino Cherry” which is currently hosting a KickStarter project for a physical release. At the time of posting this, we’ve already hit more than twice our initial stretch goal, at an incredible $1500! There’ll be plenty more updates to come, so be sure to follow the project to see song and art progress.

Additionally, my “Evil Food Eater Conchita” cover from last year is up on YouTube and NND! Good to finally have that cover up, as it was my first-ever released UST (from 2009! in romaji! with wrong lyrics!) that I’d fixed up and reposted to SoundCloud last year. People kept hounding me for YEARS to re-release this one. The UST, as usual, is up on the Covers USTs/VSQs page. Enjoy!

I’m also pleased to announce that the USTs and off-vocal for “Retrospectre” are available in the upload descriptions on YouTube, NND, and our new StudioVOXYZ SoundCloud! While I’m not abandoning my personal account (MystSaphyr), it has been relegated to cover, scrap and repost content only. The new SoundCloud account will be for uploading original songs and remixes/arranges, but will also host playlists for Studio VOXYZ voicebank demos. Be sure to give it a follow!

And finally, stay tuned for the annual Ariella and Aiko November 12th birthday duet next week! Mooncrafter and I are working extra hard on it this year!

And “Retrospectre” is now up on YouTube and NicoVideo! Many thanks to sami/@milqus for the art!

A reminder: the song is available for purchase digitally along with the full “Decagon” mini-album on Myriad’s Bandcamp, and all proceeds for the album go to the organization Musicians Without Borders!

Whew! Got a little bit of catching up to do!

I can’t believe I never posted this here, but back in February I wrote a song with KAITO for the third and final ABCD Project! I tried to write something a little Grimm fairytale themed, and the song also features Aoki Lapis as chorus vocals. It was a lot of fun to make and I’m glad people seem to have enjoyed it!


Also, I’m happy to announce I’ll be hosting my UTAU: Free Virtual Vocalists panel at this upcoming Momocon in May! More details to come soon once the final schedules are hammered out–it’s already changed location/time once so I want to make sure everything is absolutely set in stone first!

If all goes well, I should have a special item to bring with me to the panel that I might do a raffle for ;D

Happy new year, everyone! I’m happy to present my track for the “Minutes to Memories” album by Project Sonata! This became a bit of a personal song as I was writing it, but I think the lyrics can apply to many people and I hope it serves at least as a little bit of inspiration for tackling the new year. Here’s to a happier 2018!

The songs on the album were all inspired by randomly generated hex color codes. The code that my artist partner (KUREiiRO) and I received was #eeeeee!

You can download the off vocals and USTs here.
